Kidnapping? Check.

American forces were yesterday accused of violating international law by taking two Iraqi women hostage in a bungled effort to persuade fugitive male relatives to surrender.

US soldiers seized a mother and daughter from their home in Baghdad two weeks ago and allegedly left a note on the gate: "Be a man Muhammad Mukhlif and give yourself up and then we will release your sisters. Otherwise they will spend a long time in detention."

It is as if there was an official "Barbarian List," and our government is determined to put a check next to every item.

Torture? Check.
Murder of innocent civilians? Check.
Assasination of reporters? Check.
Political kidnapping? Check.

There are so many more items on the list, but I'm tired of toting up the evil done in my name.
