Guardian Unlimited Books Extracts Book extract: The Men Who Stare At Goats by Jon Ronson: "discordant sounds and apparently random music played to him during all-day interrogation sessions"
I can't understand the semi-amused, matter of fact tone that's evoked in response to the outrages perpetrated in our name by the military.
Why have we accepted these depravities with so little anger? Is it because we're so utterly impotent - slaves to the slaves of Bush? If the sight of hooding and abuse of prisoners makes people like me very angry, imagine the reaction on the victims' side. But you know who will have to pay. Yes, you and me - and the poor bloody infantry.*
*Does "infantry" mean army of children? It might as well. (I mean they are all somebody's children.)
