Update: 2,500 juveniles detained in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay since 2001

Follow on Twitter.
When the U.S. ratified the international treaty on the rights of children in armed conflict in 2002, it committed to protecting children under 18 from military recruitment and deployment to war and guaranteeing basic protections to former child soldiers, including those in U.S. military custody.
 As of 2008, the most recent year for which public data is available, 2,500 juveniles had been detained in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay since 2001. Responding to an ACLU request for updated figures in February 2010, the Department of Defense stated that fewer than five juveniles remained in U.S. military custody in Iraq and Afghanistan at that time.

But we have insufficient information about measures the U.S. has taken to rehabilitate or reintegrate the children it has detained, or the remedies provided to children who suffered harm in U.S. custody. 

Indeed, although the U.S. maintains that, “in detaining juvenile combatants, the United States seeks to restore some hope…

Fear of Intimacy – The Wounded Heart of Codependency

By Robert Burney

Fear of Abandonment, Betrayal, and Rejection

Fear of intimacy is at the heart of codependency. We have a fear of intimacy because we have a fear of abandonment, betrayal, and rejection. We have a these fears because we were wounded in early childhood – we experienced feeling emotionally abandoned, rejected, and betrayed by our parents because they were wounded. They did not have healthy relationship with self – they were codependents who abandoned and betrayed themselves – and their behavior caused us to feel unworthy and unlovable.

“We exited the warm nurturing cocoon of our incubator into a cold, harsh world. A world run by Higher Powers (parents and any body else bigger than us – siblings, grandparents, hospital or orphanage personnel) who were wounded in their childhood. Gods who were not emotionally healthy, and did not know how to Love themselves. Our egos were traumatized – and adapted programming to try to protect us from the pain of emotional trauma that felt li…

Happy Mothers Day

My name is Brenda, my mother became ill when I was 9 years old. She was a single parent, my dad is a retired top official of the U.S. Navy. He never mailed me a card, present or even phoned me. I did not meet him until my mothers death, when I was 30 years old.

By age 11 my grandmother took me & my mom into her home. Because my mom had become too psychotic to maintain a job or a residence. My grandmother told me to stay in our room, where my mother would smoke 4 packs of  cigarettes a day. And yell at the voices she heard in her head all hours of the day & night.

And then she put Boric Acid on her face, before my grandmother finally called the police  for help.  But the police said there was nothing that they could do, because she wasn't being a danger to anyone. But she was. She was a danger to me.

To get away from the insanity I ran the streets. School was just a place to be baby-sat. I was raped & molested by 26 d…

Nelson Mandela and JFK

The CIA, under Kennedy, tipped off the apartheid South African regime in 1962 about Mandela’s whereabouts. In 1990, the Cox News Service quoted a former U.S. official saying that within hours after Mandela’s arrest, a senior CIA operative named Paul Eckel admitted the agency’s involvement. Eckel was reported as having told the official, quote, "We have turned Mandela over to the South African security branch. We gave them every detail, what he would be wearing, the time of day, just where he would be. They have picked him up. It is one of our greatest coups."

Several news outlets have reported the actual source of the tip that led to the arrest of Mandela was a CIA official named Donald Rickard.

Rickard denied the reports in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, but refused to talk about his time in South Africa.

Hate mail

By Christopher Rice

I must be doing something right 'cuz I just started receiving hate mail. After Wordpress and Google removed Underground America Inc. I rebuilt the site. Then started guerilla marketing to let everyone know that the site is back online.  

Today, I opened my email and usually I receive request for (police) sting alerts or thanks for someone dodging a sting due to the info they read on my site, but today I received this:

"Come up and pull some of your nigger monkey bullshit in my neighborhood................and you’ll meet my security system. A hot .223 round in between your fucking eyes............from my AR-15.................with night vision scope...............
