whereas it truly is as a rule believed that humanitarian interventions are a reasonably fresh improvement, Rodogno demonstrates that nearly centuries in the past a world group, less than the aegis of convinced ecu powers, claimed an ethical and political correct to interfere in different states' affairs to avoid wasting strangers from bloodbath, atrocity, or extermination. On a few events, those powers acted to guard fellow Christians whilst allegedly "uncivilized" states, just like the Ottoman Empire, violated a "right to life." Exploring the political, felony, and ethical prestige, in addition to ecu perceptions, of the Ottoman Empire, Rodogno investigates the explanations that have been recommend to exclude the Ottomans from the so-called relations of countries. He considers the claims and combined reasons of intervening states for supporting humanity, the connection among public outcry and country motion or state of no activity, and the unfairness and selectiveness of governments and campaigners.

Example text

With no faucet, Jumah was forced to drink from and wash in the toilet. And it was Brandon who had done those kinds of things to detainees. On October 14, 2005, Jumah wrote a suicide note addressed to a translator: Take some of my blood. . Take some of my remains . . take pictures of my dead body when I am placed in my grave . . send it to the world . . ” . . To make them carry this burden of guilt in front of history for this soul that was wasted with no reason. . ” A year and a half later, his lawyer received a letter from him: Death has become the ultimate hope to end my misery, my suffering, and my sad life.

He led from the front and experienced as much as he could. Brandon knew he was a good soldier and saw it as his responsibility to ensure that it was the Iraqis who were killed and not the Americans. He showed no fear, no hesitation. To this day, his commander tells new soldiers about Brandon’s wartime feats. ” Soldiers never know whether they are going to have a fight-or-flight response until they are in the middle of the battle. For Brandon, when the pressure is on, he goes on adrenaline-fueled autopilot, running straight for the action and using full force.

Within his unit, it was a nonissue, and the MPs were back to work with lots to do. Mostly, Brandon figured he would never see the camp again, and particularly since everyone who ever serves at Guantanamo has to sign that nondisclosure statement, he would probably never even hear another word about it. Guantanamo was hardly in the news, so no one at home seemed to think much of it. Instead, there was talk about Saddam Hussein’s connection to al Qaeda and the possible existence of weapons of mass destruction.
