In front of the VFW, our President bush said:
one unmistakable legacy of Vietnam is that the price of America's withdrawal was paid by millions of innocent citizens whose agonies would add to our vocabulary new terms like "boat people," "re-education camps," and "killing fields."
We'll we've seen the killing fields of Fallujah, Baghdad and Kurdistan.
We've seen 21st century version of boat people in the 2 million displaced Iraqis.
And now we have our very own re-education camps:
The U.S. military has introduced "religious enlightenment" and other education programs for Iraqi detainees, some of whom are as young as 11, Marine Maj. Gen. Douglas M. Stone, the commander of U.S. detention facilities in Iraq, said yesterday.
Stone said such efforts, aimed mainly at Iraqis who have been held for more than a year, are intended to "bend them back to our will" and are part of waging war in what he called "the battlefield of the mind." Most of the younger detainees are held in a facility that the military calls the "House of Wisdom."
Hearts and minds, stay the course, victory, return on progress, religious enlightenment .....
You people are fucking retarded.
