U.S. state terrorism in Iraq. With more details emerging of the massacre of civilians in the Iraqi town of Haditha, it is apparent that the United States is committing acts of state terrorism. Senior Bush administration officials are building themselves a dossier of human rights abuses and war crimes that rival those of other international war criminals. If international charges are ever brought against Messrs. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Generals Pace, Myers, Abazaid, and lesser ranking military officers and enlisted men, people everywhere should ensure these criminals are brought to justice. The International Criminal Court (ICC), fortunately for these rogues and miscreants, does not impose the death penalty for war crimes.
