Ireland BS: Reports from Al Jazeera. P.O.W.s (69* d) RE: BS: Reports from Al Jazeera. P.O.W.s 25 Mar 03


I have no objections of the US/UK showing the Iraqi prisoners on television, what they are do is letting the world know that these people are not being harmed or harassed in any way.

I cannot say the same for the Iraqi's. They are using the media to intimidate the coalition forces, showing them what will happen if they are caught.

The deliberate use of images showing soldiers shot in the head should be condemned outright with no succor given to Saddam, people referring to the G.Bay prisoners and the Iraqi prisoners are playing right into Saddams hands. This bolsters this man and gives him encouragement to keep doing this.

We are talking about someone who according to an ex-human shield in Iraq, put people feet first into tree shredders, if he can do that to his own people what will he do to the troops out there?

I find the under tone of some of the posts sickening,what people are really saying is that the troops should not have been out there in the first and they have just themselves to blame.

Where the images showing two dead soldiers in the link there all along,could they have been missed? If they are not graphic I do not know what is.
