HUMAN first, then a proud IRANIAN

This blog represents the way I see some of the most significant events impacting the world and its citizens. This blog also represents how I react to the events as a member of humanity with a voice, a determined voice that insists to be heard. The voice of an Iranian who loves his country but his priority is humanity; humanity without border. I will say what I want to say, when I want to say it, and how I want to say it, but I will never lie. I will also listen; I promise.

Human rights, not hollow words

A letter from Amnesty International to George W. Bush on the occasion of his re-inauguration.

Who the hell is Bush? He is nobody. He is just a puppet. In fact, the letter should be addressed to Dick Cheney, Carl Rove, Paul Wolfovitz and Donald Rumsfeld who are the puppeteers of Bush. Well, a letter to Sharon might work too.

In the letter, Amnesty reminds Bush of what he said in his first speeches. here are a couple:
"Torture anywhere is an affront to human dignity everywhere. We are committed to building a world where human rights are respected and protected by the rule of law…The United States is committed to the worldwide elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example."
"The non-negotiable demands of human dignity must be protected without reference to race, gender, creed, or nationality. Freedom from torture is an inalienable human right, and we are committed to building a world where human rights are respected and protected by the rule of law… America stands against and will not tolerate torture. We will investigate and prosecute all acts of torture and undertake to prevent other cruel and unusual punishment in all territory under our jurisdiction."
"notorious human rights abusers… have long sought to shield their abuses from the eyes of the world by staging elaborate deceptions and denying access to international human rights monitors". (Reminds me of Guantanamo Bay)
What Amnesty should consider is that Bush didn't really mean these for America. These were just for other countries. After all, he thinks he is from god and as a result whatever he does is justified... Well, kind of reminds of what Khomeini was saying and doing.

Oh, one more thing: If the letter is supposed to be read by Bush, Amnesty should make it VERY short; to match the limited capabilities of Bush's brain.
