Sailors should be glad they were captured by Iran, not US

US tortureIt seems that the British sailors held hostage by Iran have little awareness of what their political masters in London and Washington have sanctioned in Iraq, Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere. Just listen to this tale of horror from Operator Mechanic Arthur Batchelor:

"It was beyond terrifying. They seemed to take particular pleasure in mocking me for being young. A guard kept flicking my neck with his index finger and thumb. I thought the worst ... I was frozen in terror and just stared into the darkness of my blindfold."
