Saw the pictures released by the Australian newspapaer when they came out. I brought my boss into my office to see them and then I talked to the "big guy" in charge and asked for his permission to have a meeting with the personnel at my location.
Did the same thing with the soldiers in my Guard unit as well, and we discussed the pictures and vented our frustration, anger and horror at the newly released pictures.
As much as you would like to make it an "us against the British" issue, I can and will only speak for myself. I said it on the other thread as well. Atrocities committed by soldiers make me feel ill. It does outrage me because people have a tendency to think that when one of a group does evil acts, we all do. I didn't become a soldier to mistreat prisoners. I became one because I believe it is essential to serve my country for everything it has given me. My soldiers here feel the same way.
Threads like these that broach subjects that can often lead to heated debate are very much needed. It is through discussion that we can learn from others and possibly see a different side to the situation and alter our point of view. Though I love joking, I've always tried to be civil. I would appreciate it, Keith, if you would drop the insinuations where I am concerned. I would hate for another important thread to be closed due to it becoming a "name-calling session." It would be very much appreciated.
