JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE NEW YORK TIMES SAYS AMERICA’S TECHNIQUES IN GUANTANAMO COPIED FROM CHINA OF THE 1950s   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

Oh, here we go again, blame the Chinese for something.

Who cares, even if this report were true?

If you copy the horrors of others from more than half a century ago, only you are to blame.

This is even more true when you are supposedly a democracy valuing human rights, and the people you copy were under an absolute government of the darkest nature.

By the way, I think America has little to be taught about brutality.

Good God, in the revolt in the Philippines, American soldiers were torturing with waterboarding.

The Army’s School of the Americas has been teaching unpleasant South American regimes techniques of policing, control, and torture for decades.

America sells more arms abroad to more repressive regimes than anyone.
