What's Coming

Ken MacLeod on Abu Ghraib:

You know how this stuff ends? It ends with your cities in rubble, your capital occupied, and your leaders hanged.

Yes it does. Nowhere does it say that America is different. We are not. We cannot behave like Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan or Fascist Italy - countries we now resemble in all but degree and we're working on that - and escape the consequences. We are guaranteeing ourselves a rather bad end unless we do the punishing ourselves.
