Email to John Yoo (Bush's "Torture lawyer")

Subj.: About and to you


You are a reprehensible pig. Short of calling you, literally, a Nazi (as I don't assume any "anti-Semitic" intent on your part, and I would need to do so to label you a Nazi), you are morally (or rather A-morally or IM-morally) equivalent (get this - NOT lesser, EQUIVALENT) to the Nazi "doctors", who used their profession and academic accreditations to rationalize and facilitate acting as lackeys for their war-criminal regime. Like them, you couch sadism in cold, clinical, twisted linguistic garb. May you rot in hell for all the human and political wreckage you've left in your wake and on the world's landscape. Rest assured, though, we will ultimately put an end to the carnage wreaked by you, Bush, and his other criminal cronies, and we will rebuild true humanitarian democracy; whereas you (plural) will be forever affixed with legacies equivalent to Hitler and his thugs.

I'll end by quoting Bob Dylan from his timeless song, "Masters of War":

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled;
The fear to bring children
Into the world.
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins.

How much do I know
To talk out of turn?
You might say that I'm young,
You might say I'm unlearned.
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you,
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do.

Let me ask you one question:
Is your money that good?
Will it buy you forgiveness?
Do you think that it could?
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll,
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul...."
