This is so sad... but very unsuprising as well .. the US has always spit on IHL and even more so in its so-called "war on terrorism". Khadr may be guilty or innocent or just at the wrong place at the wrong time but did he deserve G Bay.. absolutely NOT.

Very good piece. Good that you guys are thinking about the west and east. very interesting read. There are many such human rights violations that the West has committed. These articles provide an interesting angle to most Indians who think only Muslims are terrorists and Middle Easterns are terrorits, while even the West and Non Muslims are also spreading terror in the name of justice and terror protection.
