Do you want to torture someone, but can't find any good leg irons at Wal-Mart? Try Smith & Wesson: Because guns aren't the only way to kill people!

Torturing in America's Name in Syria ( And Guantanamo Bay, Egypt, Saudi, etc).

How are other countries that don't send troops helping us out in the "War on Terror", you ask? Well, since Americans would be adverse to the notion of torture taking place in the land of the free and the home of the brave, in true Bush Administration fashion, we've outsourced the dirty work! Torture vs. terror; the end justifies the means. We're headed to a Phyrric victory when we sacrifce the best of ourselves to defeat our enemies.

U.S. Exporting 'Tools of Torture,' Charges Amnesty

WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec 3 (OneWorld) - The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush is violating the spirit of its own export policy by approving the sale of tools to countries known to use them to torture detainees, according to new report released here Tuesday by Amnesty International.

In 2002, U.S. exports of electro-shock weapons and restraints that can be used for torture amounted to some US$14.7 dollars and $4.4 million, respectively, according to the report, titled "The Pain Merchants."

Along with the sales of such equipment, Washington is also reported to have handed over suspects in the ''war on terror'' to the same countries, the 85-page report said.

"Although torture is endemic in Saudi Arabia, Smith & Wesson had no qualms about exporting approximately 10,000 leg-irons to Riyadh, and, apparently sharing this lack of concern, the Bush administration approved the sale," said William Schulz, executive director of Amnesty's U.S. branch, AIUSA.

Take it away, Lee Greewood...
