Runners up to terrorists

Yesterday, Donald Rumsfeld told reporters in a press conference that the human rights abuses and torture that took place at Abu Ghraib prison were not as bad as those perpetrated by terrorist groups.

Great. Now we pride ourselves on being runners up to terrorists in terms of human rights. In the Olympics of human rights abuse in Iraq, we are the silver medalists.

Shock and awe at the ballot box, people. Shock and awe.

If your enemies are hungry, feed them
If they are thirsty, give them something to drink
For by doing this you will heap burning coals on their heads.

Do not be overcome by evil
But overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:20-21

PS Erasmus says that the "burning coals" of the above verse represent the fiery intensity of the love we are supposed to be showing. Just in case Donald Rumsfeld maybe reads this and gets the wrong idea.
