This comment by Harman is telling for me: 'I mean, nothing negative happened to him, really,” she said. “I think they thought he was being tortured, which he wasn’t.”'
Well, in my opinion if I was made to pose like this I would personally be terrified of want was happening and might happen to me. That is a definition of torture. You don't have to pull someone's fingernails out with pliers to be doing something 'negative' to them. That one sentence by Harman reveals her insensitivity to the reality of the situation and the inhumainity of the treatment of these men. Shameful.

thanks for that info – I still think if other european countries frown on /ban shot/saboted slugs for large game because of its danger to others, inhumainity to the prey and poor accuracy, then it should be the same here. I appreciate cost is an issue but the longbow is a lot cheaper, more skillful and quieter for the others who appreciate wildlife in other ways – I should think its banned though !!. How many times have the boar/chevreuil that are killed, been shot and peppered before !

Bryan Mealer is one courageous dude. Check out this harrowing memoir; an unbelievably gripping account of his four years spent covering the brutal wars in Congo. This amazing book is an unflinching account of man's inhumainity and a testament to the will of average people as they try to eek out an existence amidst unbelievable suffering, mayhem and destruction. As a career Army officer who has been to Africa and also Iraq and Afghanistan, I am in awe of the amount of courage and tenacity Bryan demonstrated living the events that make this narrative so gripping, moving and utterly unfortgettable.

It was first published in 1960 in The Atlantic Monthly
