The Angel of Death . . .

This from today's New York Times:
According to the documents released today, Josef Mengele, the Auschwitz death camp doctor known as the "Angel of Death" for his experiments on inmates, practiced medicine in Buenos Aires for several years in the 1950's. He "had a reputation as a specialist in abortions," which were illegal.
Wouldn't you know.

Hat tip: my friend Dan Florio.

The whole story is here.

Actually this article is not a recent New York Times piece; it's from 1992, I think. There was a recent mention of it in First Things.

Speaking of the angel of death havent you noticed that THE dominant institution in the USA is the Pentagon military-industrial complex (death-machine)

And that as such its "values" permeate every aspect of USA "culture".

And by extension, via over 700 overseas military bases etc etc and so on, every last square inch of the entire planet.

And that Christian America accounts for 48% of the worlds armanents trade.

And that ALL of the most strident supporters of this situation are on the right side of the culture wars divide---including those who lodly and "righteously" pretend to be religious.

Who would Jesus bomb?

Would Jesus (or any living radiant saint) approve of the USS (City) of Corpus Christie ---a Trident nuclear submarine capable of vapourising (via an act of genocide) millions of human beings instantaneously.

Nuclear weapons are by their very nature INHERENTLY genocidal.
