Most would agree that our military is a well trained and groomed killing machine of unknown proportions, as we have come to witness in the recent WiKi Leaks of over 400,000 daily accounts of random killing of civilian at U.S. military check points and through out Iraq. Although our U.S. military Defense Department calls it only tragic snapshots of raw observations of tactic units, which were only snap shots of tragic, mundane events, sounds very offensive and callous. While Juilanne Assange, founder and director of Wiki Leaks, calls these snapshots of death a "Human Scale" of the conflict of the Iraqi War.
Is this what we have become, insensitive and indifferent to the killing of human beings, because they may have been at the wrong place and at the wrong time and looked upon as the enemy? Most of these young soldiers, some in their teens and early twenties, can be easily brainwashed to take orders that would seem to be acceptable at the time, because they were given by their officers and superiors from the Pentagon. So if we, the populous wish to put blame, let the blame of human indifference towards life, lay on the doorstep of those who know are guilty of shameful complicity by ignoring International Law under the United Nations!
As quoted by Manfred Novak, the UN Special rapporteur on torture, "President Obama came to power with a moral agenda saying we don't want to be seen to be a nation responsible for major human rights violations. A failure to investigate credible claims of complicity on torture, Novak suggested, would be a failure of the Obama government to recognize US obligations under International Law!
