Nippon has neglected the idea of progress. Spirituality has been valued above anything else. Without progress nothing prospers. History shows us. The Satsuma and the Choshu clans were defeated by modern weapons. So they dropped isolationism bought guns and beat the Shogunate. Defeat brings understanding. That's the only way Japan can be helped. Achieve understanding today and Japan will be saved. We are pioneers in the rebirth of our nation.
According to Gen. Miller's memo: "The physical security of U.S. forces and detainees in U.S. care is paramount. Use the minimum force necessary for mission accomplishment and force protection ... Use of the IRF team and levels of force are not to be used as a method of punishment."
But human rights lawyers, former prisoners and former IRF team members with extensive experience at Guantánamo paint a very different picture of the role these teams played.
I fear that all humiliation will lead to is more knee jerk responses.
