War is a Game to the NeoCons by Martin Kelly

The neocons are certainly adept at producing dungeons. The patsies for the scandal of Abu Ghraib are now and will forever be the reservists caught on candid camera, while there is little public talk of ‘Operation Copper Green’, and ‘contractors’ being brought in to ‘circumvent’ the Geneva Convention. The Geneva Convention is one of the high watermarks of post-Enlightenment civilisation, one of those documents that show, like the Bible and the Constitution, that Man is capable of great nobility, that prove we are better than beasts – it went into the trash to give the neocons what they wanted.
