Book Recommendation: Eyes of the Tailless Animals, by Soon Ok LeePublished in 1999 by Living Sacrifice Book Company, Bartlesville, OK
There is no talking, no singing, no laughing and often prisoners are forced to stay in one physical position for many hours at a time without relief.

Soviet Disinformation and the Peace Movement
~ an excerpt of an article by Ion Mihai Pacepa, published in National Review ~
