Can the Bushit Get Any Thicker? G. Dubya and Iraqi Women Detainees...
Civilians are being made pawns in the game of war and I am not just referring to the "insurgency" or "terrorist" kidnappings. The United States is kidnapping Iraqi women who are guilty of nothing but marriage to a possible, and I repeat, possible Iraqi insurgent. Maybe "suspected" is a better word than "possible", I don't know to be honest. See the problem with this debate, and many other debates we have here domestically in the U.S. is the terminology we employ and utilize. I mean with phrases like "terrorist" and "axis of evil", the debate doesn't have a chance to get started because we have already these value-laden terms conjuring up images that distort reality.
