Speaking of abuse.........

by Del McMullen / May 29, 2004 3:44 AM PDT

I have no intention of excuses or sympathy for the depraved individuals who recently dishonored the USofA by their actions. At the same time, I have little tolerance for the outrage, inflamed and encouraged by the media, shown by Arab and American alike. And not to draw any comparison between these current abuses and those in Iraq by the Saddam Hussein regime, here is an interesting article as follow-on or fall-out from the previous regime:

"................one of nine Iraqi men whose right hands were amputated in 1995 on orders of Saddam Hussein as punishment for their alleged crime of dealing in American dollars.............................

.....................Thanks to remarkable cooperation and generosity of U.S. government agencies, private industry, doctors, hospitals, and individual Americans, seven of the nine were brought to the United States and fitted free of charge with state-of-the art prosthetic hands............................

................... "The Iraqi people and the American people are brothers in humanity," said Salah Znad, a teacher. "We appreciate that you paid a price to help the Iraqis out of these problems and injustice. We are thankful to the American people."......................

.................The men said they welcome President Bush's decision to demolish Abu Ghraib. "In this prison many innocent people were killed, and many people suffered," Nazaar Joudi said. "Children were tortured, women were tortured, elderly were tortured. The decision to destroy Abu Ghraib is going to turn the page of suffering and injustice. We want to forget this period and turn to a new page of democracy and freedom."..................

They should devote those grounds to become a public garden.

They could call it something like "The Garden of Healing Peace" or "Garden of Mournful Remembrance". Divide the garden into various sections surrounding a serene pool of water. Each section have a theme, such as aromatic plants in one, herbals in another, flowering shrubs and bushes and so forth.

Wouldn't be the first moral obsenity............

.......to be removed from the face of the earth.

Sugamo Prison, in Japan, was built in the 1920's for political prisoners. Back in that era, Japan was not kind
to these political prisoners. After the war, the US used Sugamo to house Japan's war criminals. Another
dark cloud for Japan.

In 1971, with all of Japan's war criminals either dead or on parole, the Japanese Government demolished Sugamo
Prison, and the tallest building in Tokyo, Sunshine 60, was built on its place. All that is left to commemorate the prison is a rock, in the shadow of Sunshine 60, that says "Pray for eternal peace."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
