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.

One year after Abu Ghraib, torture continues

After the fall of the brutal regime of the Shah in Iran, it was not easy to imagine the new regime would be even more brutal. The crush of the peoples' democratic demands started by warnings, then pushings, then street clashes and beatings, then arresting for a couple of hours, then arresting for longer periods, then slapping the prisoners, then severely beating them, then officially torturing them and ...... and by this time, the new regime had broken the Shah's regime's record of human rights abuses by a great margin and they were on the rout of becoming one of the most brutal regimes in the world.

Looks like the same process is taking place in Iraq now, and that is under the eyes, actions and directions of the American occupying forces. The latest Amnesty International report tells us that the only change in Iraq is that only the torturers have changed and they are not only Iraqis now but also are Americans and the brutality and torture continues. And this is only one year after Abu Ghraib was exposed. There goes the "freedom and democracy loving" Bush's America.
