The Rule of Law, Kafka Style

It is about to happen again. Somebody, not me or you of course, but one of those others (arabs, palestinians, immigrants, refugees - you name it), is called a terrorist and is soon going to face deportation to a country where torture is practiced...

Reading news can sometimes be like reading Kafka. What a process... Swedish secret police claims that the man is security risk, but refuses to give any grounds for this accusation. Nothing. Not a single shred of paper. Neither to the terrorist, nor to his lawyer.

The only reason why this terrorist still is not thrown out of the country is his poor health condition. What a nice and humane message - "as soon as you get better, we send you to the torture chamber, so you better stay sick, or what about getting even sicker?"

I think the real sickness is somewhere else though, it's in the heads of those who make decisions such as in this case. The proof is obvious.

And regarding Kafka's writings - I would prefer them to stay where they are, without making apparition in the real life, in Sweden, year 2007.

I totally agree with Teresa!
Sweden and Portugal are already too far from each other, at least keep us posted!!! :)

This case is incredible! In Portugal the scandal goes on with CIA flights, and the Government pretending that nothing happened.

I've also posted some of this nes in my blog, hope you don't mind.

Well... let's (somehow) keep the faith! (whatever that might be!) :)

Glad I came across this blog.

I guess there's a big problem in identifying what is terrorism? for example, does everyone who helps palestinians considered a terrorist, while the israeli government itself commits worse crimes everyday?

Is being against the US business interests, for purly socialistic reasons, means that those who oppose are terrorists?

you know, like chomsky says, one man's freedom fighter is another's terrorist.

its all a matter of perspective, but it seems only those in power can stretch the terms to their best interests.

Anyway.. I'll surely come back here, you got yourself a reader man.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
