I know that within every age and in every dictatorial, democratic, oligarchy, kingdom, monarchy and theocracy societies there are individuals who will group together for cruelty and torture.

I am ashamed that this is true anywhere in the world in this day and age, but especially from citizens of my country. Word is now public about a US Army ‘kill Team” in Afghanistan posing with photos of murdered civilians.

These sub-humans that have no compassion or honor killed and mutilated innocents civilians as a rogue US Stryker tank unit in the province of Kandahar. All of this happened last year and already 12 men are currently on trial for their role in the killing of three civilians.

Der Spiegel, a German news weekly has just or is about to publish images of the US soldiers abusing and then mutilating dead prisoners. Commanders fear a public fury even worse than the Abu Ghraib cruelty and abuse in Iraq.

The story is horrid. It is human cruelty and dispassion at its worst. It is an indelible stain on the standards and values that comprise the United States of America. Collectively we ought to hang our heads in shame for our children committed these crimes.

Where do these men come from?

They come from normal and ordinary homes that teach prejudice by example and hate of anybody looking different or believing differently.

They come from homes where parents are detached from their children’s lives and who fail to show that life is a grace and comprised of compassion.

They come from a sub-society of drug addictive personalities who cannot see the sacredness of life beyond their group uniform of power and delusional addictions.

Let us all pray in the manor of individual choice that these aberrations never again surface in any society under any circumstances anywhere in the world.

Angels weep when these kinds of crimes are committed and there are human tears everywhere for the choices these men made were wrong and it reflects on all of civilized humanity.
