Today, I feel strongly like I am in Hitler's Germany, during his invasions into neighboring countries. I am reading desperate cries from residents of Baghdad, reverberating across the globe through radio and the Net.

These are the words of a BBC reporter, living in the city: "Sorry - my wife is shouting, the bombardment has started. This time the raid has started before the air-raid siren. The windows are shaking. I have to go."

I feel sick to my stomach. I am living in a country that is killing people in cold blood. Right now. It is being broadcast. And most everybody seem not to care. At all.

These are sorry days for the United States of America - once the champion of human rights.
