Just how sick and depraved can the Iraqis be…posted by Bill Arnett @ 1:38 PM Permalink …when doing something Think Progress detailed today.
"A prominent Iraqi human rights activist says that Iraqi militia have deployed a painful form of torture against homosexuals by closing their anuses using 'Iranian gum.' ...Yina Mohammad told Alarabiya.net that, 'Iraqi militias have deployed an unprecedented form of torture against homosexuals by using a very strong glue that will close their anus.' According to her, the new substance 'is known as the American hum, which is an Iranian-manufactured glue that if applied to the skin, sticks to it and can only be removed by surgery. After they glue the anuses of homosexuals, they give them a drink that causes diarrhea. Since the anus is closed, the diarrhea causes death. Videos of this form of torture are being distributed on mobile cellphones in Iraq.'"Torture begets more torture, and apparently there is nothing too cruel for the Iraqis and the methods by which they torture.
I'd bet that gwb is sitting somewhere having Laura read this to him and him saying, 'Gosh I wish I had thought of that first!"
But can anyone tell me why we continue to associate ourselves with a sovereign nation so despicably cruel? Other than their oil?
