In the digital age, people document and share everything – even insults to the fallen It is as much a document of the information age as a horror of war. A video anonymously posted on YouTube this week apparently shows four US marines urinating on the corpses of Afghans. They pose for a video camera held by a fifth marine, and perform their great deed against the dead with what looks like self-consciousness. They are doing it to be seen, in full awareness they are being filmed. Being filmed, and posting it for the world to watch, might actually be the point of the exercise. Comparisons with previous incidents involving American forces, such as the torture in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq , seem unavoidable although there is actually a difference between torturing and abusing living prisoners, as happened at Abu Ghraib, and desecrating the bodies of the dead. Goya, in the print he called Great Deeds Against the Dead , captured the futility and cowardice of violence against fallen enemies ...

Arab League official attacks Syria mission as 'farce' 11.1.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Anwar Malek, an Algerian member of the mission, says it is not acting independently and is 'serving the regime's interests' An Arab League official has launched a scathing attack on the regional body's mission to Syria, claiming it has been powerless to prevent "multiple crimes against humanity" from being committed by troops loyal to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Anwar Malek, an Algerian member of the team, said the observer mission was becoming a farce. He said it was not acting independently and was serving the regime's interests. Malek is the first from the 60-man delegation – which has been widely criticised – to break ranks. His fierce criticism echoes regular warnings made by Syrian opposition figures who have claimed throughout the past month that the mission was being manipulated by regime officials. In an interview with al-Jazeera, Malek claimed to have witnessed numerous incidents of torture in Syria and to have left behind a country on the verge of civil war. ...
