Torture and the Geneva Convention

Can we keep it this simple? Let us, as the strongest and most militarized nation in the world, uphold with the most possible rigor, the Geneva Convention. Let us be known for not torturing anyone, anywhere, at any time.


  1. When I started hearing about the torture debate, and the secret prisons, I was struck with the idea that I am as guilty for this as anybody. I know that it's wrong and I am saying nothing. Sure I have a blog that nobody reads under a pseudonym that hides my true identity.

    Not today. Today I stand up and use my own name, and I want the world to know that this is not being done in my name.

    Heres something I am trying to do - I want to put newspaper ads in daily papers around the country that will help shape the debate about torture and secret prisons. Please check out my site and let me know what you think, and if you think its a good idea, add your name to the ad.

    I know I'm not alone, Help me remind America what it means to be American.

    Lets be a shining hope to mankind again

  2. Indeed. When we're called upon to turn the other cheek, I believe it to mean that we in the face of conflict we are called to love our enemies, which is far more difficult than to strike back, but over time will erase the motivation for further violence. That's preemptive.
