03/23/2003 Entry: "Rumsfeld on the Geneva Conventions"

"Al-Jazeera TV has broadcast pictures of what appear to be the bodies of several American service personnel, and interviews with five prisoners - among them a woman.

"The film is said to have been shot in or near the city of Nasiriya, where US Marines say they are meeting tougher than expected resistance, and have reported at least six dead and 14 wounded.

"US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said television networks showing such interviews were breaking the Geneva conventions on prisoners-of-war."
Advancing American forces in Iraq have suffered casualties as they push northwards towards the capital Baghdad., BBC, March 23, 2003

Geneva conventions? What the hell does the bush junta care about that? Oh, wait, except when it applies to us. Never fucking mind.

I have great faith in the ability and courage of our troops in the field, but when people are defending their homes and families, instead of some points on a map, there's going to be a different kind of fighting and a different kind of spirit in that fighting. Are there no Vietnam veterans out there or in the Pentagon to say this more convincingly than I can?

I'm praying hard for our people in Iraq and that this doesn't escalate into more of a nightmare than it already is. The Peace movement couldn't stop this war, but they can certainly keep our minds focused on the stupidity of it and the very valid reasons to oppose it and I completely support them in that and thank the news outlets that are reporting on the marches and demonstrations.
