Three Articles

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

I have on my desktop three articles that I find particularly disturbing. The first is titled Doctors decry Guantanamo treatment. It tells how U.S. doctors have turned a blind eye to prisoner abuses, putting their loyalty to the state above their duty to care for patients. Quoting from the article:
The letter compared the ongoing role of U.S. doctors working at Guantanamo, who have been accused of ignoring torture, to the South African doctors involved in the case of anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko, who died while being detained by security police.
"The attitude of the U.S. medical establishment appears to be one of 'See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil,'" the letter charged.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
~Edmund Burke
The next article has to do with those wonderful little implantable chips. Some have called them Spychips, others call them tracking chips. They're the ones that we have inserted into our pets to help them find their way back to us if they become lost. They're also the ones that VeriChip would like to see injected into every American's arm (for a fee I'm sure). Some people fear that this will be the direction government will go when it becomes apparent that the National ID cards can be forged. The article, Chip implants linked to animal tumors, explains that the chips have been shown to cause tumors in lab mice dating back to 1996. It then questions why the FDA failed to take those studies under consideration when it awarded approval. There's a twist at the end involving Tommy Thompson, GOP presidential candidate until bowing out in August.
"O, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!"
~Sir Walter Scott
The last article deals with the implementation of Martial Law here in the United States. NORTHCOM Plans 5 Day Martial Law Exercise describes the up-coming plans for an anti-terrorism exercise called Vigilant Shield 08. Quoting from the article:
USNORTHCOM also announced that they have been using the lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina to better respond to crises. The response to Hurricane Katrina was essentially used as a test laboratory to implement martial law in a city. People were forced to relocate against their will and authorities stole people's firearms in the name of safety despite these actions being entirely unconstitutional.
