This is to be short and sweet.
*) The following, involving whatever the Wraiths or Dark Empire does are not necessarily my opinions, nor any opinions of any of the groups I may represent. It is mainly my wish to clarify a few things for the esteemed Minister, should he have the patience to listen.
1) It stands to reason that governments should have not have the excuse to turn sentient beings into soap anymore than the average paramilitary organization does.
2) Turning aliens into soap is not the largest concern, although the implications are largely unfair as many prisoners in the Dark Empire\'s prisons had only the misfortune of angering Vodo in some small insignificant way or another (Looking at it this way, you could say that yes, they consider them criminals, but so do the Wraiths consider their targets criminals. If you, Yarbles, feel it is unimportant for victims of the Dark Empire to be tried fairly, then why can\'t the Wraiths just kill someone they\'re payed to kill?). The larger concern, in any case, is that they are centering on aliens. Which makes it genocide. No matter which way you look at it. Criminals or not, or any other excuse anyone may make, it is aliens who are becoming soaps and furs. That is genocide, and it is a crime against the Sentient people of the Galaxy.
3) While sometimes you may find mercenaries doing something that might not necessarily be considered moral, you will find them performing many more moral acts than the Dark Empire. The Wraiths have never held someone hostage so they could catch someone. The Dark Empire held one of their own hostage to do just that.
4) And this is my personal opinion to all: Stop letting Vodo get to you. This soap matter is far past a matter of worrying about. Don\'t buy it, and Vodo won\'t make it. This has been blown far out of proportion and soon enough people will stop reading GNS, if they haven\'t already.
Thank you for your time.
