fuckin ay

* this via kathleen: "A Marine recruiter assaulted two unarmed anti-war protesters with a baseball bat in New Haven at a non-violent anti-war protest"

* jeebusfuckingchrist. i cant believe i'm about to post this - but here goes:
"(Reuters) - The United Nations Human Rights Council on Thursday unanimously approved an international treaty that would ban states from abducting perceived enemies and hiding them in secret prisons or killing them.

The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance would require states to keep registers of detainees and tell their families the truth about their disappearance, as well as paying compensation.

It still has to be adopted in the U.N. General Assembly, and then individual governments would need to approve it.

Rights experts say the United States, in the spotlight over allegations it has been transferring terrorism suspects to secret jails in other countries, is not expected to ratify the pact."

how the mighty have fallen.

the US is a holdout against something called the "International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance"
