TORTURE IS...

This year a coalition of human rights, civil liberties and faith organizations have declared June “Torture Awareness Month” and in support of the same (and as part of Bloggers Against Torture), I present:

TORTURE IS.....

-listening to Britney Spears

-watching Fox News

-being stuck between two fat blokes in economy seating on long distance flight

-being lectured on how to be a 'good Muslim' by certain individuals who are desperately seeking attention and in need of good (beard) grooming tips

-reality television

-listening to incessant lies by the Bush Administration about no credible proof of global warming or climate change when the frequency and scale of increasing global natural disasters are evidently clear

-listening to people define what is 'hip' and 'cool' in their opinion

-watching multi-millionaire celebrities inciting your sympathy for the impoverished in third world countries

-defining PNAC as a think tank. (It is just a tank).

-being stuck in traffic when you desperately need to get to a restroom because you have just gulped down 3 cans of coke while driving.

-watching people commit murder in the name of religion

-classifying Palestinian suicide bombers as terrorists while IDF soldiers shoot innocent Palestinian children in the head for nothing other than their sadistic pleasure

-trying to convince the general public that the War On Terror is legitimate

-watching majority of the mainstream media sell out to the Globalist agenda

-watching the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent people in the name of Democracy and Freedom

-being force fed on the official version of 9-11

-experiencing the loss of your civil rights and freedoms in the name of your own protection and safety

-watching the funding and nurturing of 'freedom fighters' for a specific strategic aim, who are then later classified as 'terrorists' to serve another globalist aim.

-watching the majority exhibit apathy or remain silent on global events

-watching junior soldiers get prosecuted for beating, humiliating and murdering persons in detention while senior officers/generals and politicians who are actually responsible get away scot-free

-something you are responsible for even if you do it through proxy forces

-torture no matter what you call it, be it 'rendition' or any other bulls**t title

-unwarranted, inhuman, unjustified and UNACCEPTABLE under any condition

-something we should all speak out against

-reading this article (for some) but I couldn't be buggered.

Touche' Omer.

And the biggest torture of them all is watching Condoleezza Rice delivering the Strappado Rendition, ‘with sweetness’, to countless helpless victims in more than three dozen ‘outposts of tyranny’ while in the balconies above, her ghastly neocon masters glide in a macabre saltation watching her gruesome performance. Her victims, however, are reeling with pain by the time she strikes the end note of her grand finale.

Your post left me breathless! Great stuff! Allow me to add a handful of my own:

Torture is your work colleagues talking about the events on the "Big Brother" show every day, while you're left wondering if they are really extras from "The Body Snatchers"

Torture is the Iraqi nation's feelings on the western media's sudden post-Haditha shift, knowing full well that this is not a turning point, but that there has been a Haditha every disgraceful, blood-soaked day since the Imperialist/Zionist/Axis-Of-Evil started their Crusade in Muslim lands.

Torture is allegedly liberating a people, then using their torture camps as torture camps, all the while proclaiming that things are better than they've ever been.

Torture is the napalm-stinking-knowledge that a nation villified for being baby killers over 30 years ago, is still at it, having learned precisely nothing.

Torture is the statistic that for every Israeli child killed in a suicide bomb, 7 Palestinian children are killed in return by snipers, helicopters, soldiers and missiles.

Torture is the black American underclass watching in horror as their most senior figure, Condoleezza Rice, was out buying three thousand dollar shoes while large chunks of her nation was dying in New Orleans. Their feelings of betrayal and their deaths through negligence and deliberate, malicious, cold intent, that was torture.

Torture, lots of ways to apply it: having to listen to foreigners saying certain Romanian songs are great just because they really do not understand the words, having to see all the Coca-Cola drinks replaced with Pepsi all over the building you are working with, having to hear something like "where do I find double-click on my computer?", seeing the Church wanting to build an allmighty huge cathedral instead of using that money to help the homeless, to prevent children to be forced to beg and other such unimportant goals...
Seeing news of bombings and deaths everyday in the newspapers/tv/radio.
