That weren't no DJ, that was hazy cosmic jive

On Khadr and kangaroo courts

The BBC notes the Khadr trial with the observation that:

The US is the first country since World War II to prosecute a person at a war crimes tribunal for actions allegedly committed as a juvenile.

What could I possibly add? Through Guantanamo, the U.S. has (along with Canadian acquiescence) a new record – one which the DR Congo, the Saudis, and the Afghan government itself couldn’t achieve. First a moon landing, and now the prosecution of a child soldier. Glad Canada could participate in at least one of the two!

Show me a 15-year old boy with perfect authority over his actions, and I’ll not only eat my hat, I’ll eat the Geneva Convention too. If it’s still around.
