GUEST,robomatic BS: American Soldiers Torturing Iraqis (306* d) RE: BS: American Soldiers Torturing Iraqis 30 Apr 04

Considering that it was Iraqi policy in treating their own people to truly torture them

Considering that it was Iraqi policy for summary execution at the whim and hand of Saddam Hussein and anyone he favored

Considering that it was Iraqi policy that led to the brutal rape of American soldier severely wounded prisoners.

Under the Americans we have been shown abuse at the level of severe college hazing. It is certainly wrong, and it looks like the U.S. Military has acknowledged the events, is aware of the perpetrators, and is on the way to courtmartialing them. No one has been physically harmed (that we know about).

On the other hand, some of the prisoners have been humiliated, which in their culture might be a FWTD.

It is wrong, it is unfortunate, it is going to be bad for U.S. involvement in the entire region as it gets played up as big in the press as it is in this forum.

My sympathies go out to the vast majority of Americans at arms who are just as disgusted as I am, and put at risk due to the bad image this has given us.
