I hate to see the word "rebel" used of someone like Lynndie England. The
Australian's have a word for someone like her and it is
"larrikin". Someone who bucks authority, but when the chips are down toes
That is not to say that she could not do some damage. Also lumpen petty
bourgeois elements will identify with her, because she like them is trapped
working for the Man while doling out punishment to those below.
For she is precisely located in the "doing the dirty work of imperialism"
slot and she appears to have to have set about that task with some enthusiasm.
Her and her fellow patriots are now expendable for political reasons, but
only temporarily so.
Pax Americana needs the torturers and their time will come again. (That is
if it has gone away and I am far from believing it has.)
