Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US has always been used by factions playing off against each other. One taxi driver spent a couple of years in Guantanamo cos another driver reckoned he'd stolen a fare, so grassed him up. Half the people in Abu Ghraib were there cos of score settling.

this isn't new. what's awful is that the US still hasn't learnt a damn thing about how to behave when it's "winning" hearts and minds. But then again this isn't about h&m, it's about throwing your weight around cos you're "america" (f"ck yea !!) and you can do what you like when you like to whom you like and nobody will ever give a damn.

keep to the Fen Causeway
