Odd Thoughts In Art...

While pulling together a comment on the catastrophy of Contemporary SF - I wanted a reference to the Non-Fiction Book I am reading - The Battle For Spain which lead me to notice that in Europe, they are marketting the cover that shows that the Soldier has a Grenade in his hand.

While in America, the Land of The VOCHAS, we get No Grenades Please, we are scared Americans who are clearly not sure what 'war like operational event sequences' would be like, if we had to send in the nice kids from the burbs, rather than those SkinHead NeoNazi Types that we are so glad the military is giving waivers to....

But that later part is, well, an issue in itself.

Or is that the Really Ugly Part of Art???

Maybe it is time for The Pissant Dillitantism of the Internal Identity Politics of the SF v. Fantasy v. Literary Gaming to get OVER the unpleasantry of their 'market share' snivelling and start dealing with getting Past their Roots in the 30's Style Technocracy - Props to autopope - for his wonderful insight into Science Fiction, that will oblige me to think more about it as a Socio-Political Activity, on par with the Rest of the Evil Terrorist Tricks that are the inevitable follow on from merely reading and writing without Direct Supervision by the Department Of Homeland Security....

Speaking of National Day Of Torture

Hum.... Just because the crime may have been committed Prior to the president signing his national day of torture - does that really mean that the president should exempt them???
Four U.S. soldiers face court martial for the rape and murder of an Iraqi girl and the killing of her family in their home in Mahmudiya, a U.S. military official said on Wednesday.

"Maj. Gen. Thomas Turner has referred charges against four soldiers to trial by general court-martial," the military official told Reuters.

Two of the soldiers could receive the death penalty if convicted, the Army said. One of the two others will likely admit his role and settle the case without litigation, according to his Washington attorney, David Sheldon.


The Mahmudiya case, the fifth involving serious crimes being investigated by the U.S. military in Iraq, has outraged Iraqis and led Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to call for a review of foreign troops' immunity from Iraqi prosecution.

According to U.S. military prosecutors, former private Steven Green, who faces charges in a U.S. civilian court, shot dead 14-year-old Abeer Qasim Hamza al-Janabi's father, mother and six-year-old sister in Mahmudiya, near Baghdad, in March.

Green then raped the teenager and killed her, and tried to burn the bodies and house to conceal evidence of the crime.

Were these people acting on their Own? or were they a part of some Liberal Fifth Columnists???

More Being All You Can Be....

Pyongyang, October 13 (KCNA) -- U.S. Congress recently adopted an act on dealing with "suspects in terrorism," which is an outright challenge to the world community demanding a halt to the encroachment upon the rights of prisoners. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed commentary.
The adoption of the act is a criminal document legalizing the GIs' violations of human rights as evidenced by its clauses, the news analyst notes, and goes on:
This act allows any military trial of "suspected terrorists" even in the absence of clear evidence and any practices to wrest testimonies from them by force. In particular, it does not call for taking any legal action against those who abuse human rights in the course of torturing and interrogating "suspected terrorists."
It is not hard to guess what the U.S. has sought in the adoption of such highhanded act. Through this the U.S. seeks to justify and incite its imperialist aggression forces' human rights abuses and punish a great many innocent people on charges of being "suspected terrorists" in a bid to whip up an atmosphere of terror in the international community. Their ulterior motive is to escalate the "war on terrorism" to realize its design for world domination.
The U.S. desperate efforts to attain its aims for aggression and domination through such act will only reveal its true colors as the world's worst abuser of human rights and invite its international isolation and worldwide condemnation.
Its arbitrary and highhanded practices are the root cause of wrecking global peace and stability and challenging international justice.
