Dear Readers :
Earlier this month a 90 year old American citizen was forcibly removed from his home and flown to Munich , Germany to stand trial for alleged Nazi war crimes. John Demjanjuk was an S.S. Guard at the notorious Sobibor Concentration Camp who it is alleged was complicit in the murder of 29,000 European Jews in the Nazi ovens. While it should be of great concern to all Americans that a grave injustice has probably been done to this American the focus of this essay is not Mr. Demjanjuk's guilt or innocence. It is something far more important than that.
I have absolutely no doubt that Mr. Demjanjuk will be water boarded as well as tortured via some of the other methods employed with the approval of our current Speaker Of The House Of Representatives Nancy Pelosi amongst many of the current Democratic members of Congress who are conveniently now in quite a tizzy about these " torture" methods being employed against vicious known terrorists at Guantanamo. How is it that these interrogation methods are inhumane for terrorists but the treatment Mr. Demjanjuk has already received with far less compelling evidence against him does not spark even one voice of outrage amongst the enlightened and oh so morally superior Liberons / Dumbasses / Democrats? In thirty years when the shoe may very well be on the other foot do any of you think Ms. Pelosi and her ilk will relish the idea of being judged by the mullahs of Iran or Saudi Arabia or worse even still a now dominant Al Qaeda? I think we all know that a beheading would be in their immediate futures. How is it that " the attention grab " method of interrogation which leaves no permanent damage and at best is nothing more than a major pain in the ass for the recipient is considered " torture " by these folks but forcibly removing a 90 year old man from his home of 50 years to stand trial in a foreign country for a crime the evidence of which leaves a reasonable doubt is not considered torture? These people are shameless. They should be held accountable by the same standards they hold everybody else accountable. Perhaps someday the Mullahs will get to do all of us Americans a favor.
With God's judgment so close at hand for Mr. Demjanjuk is it really necessary for humanity to be screaming for the blood of a 90 year old man?
This is nothing more than yet another example of the perceived aggrieved seeking their pound of flesh.
