  Oops, we did it again
Abu Ghraib.....the name conjures up pictures of US Military personnel abusing Iraqi POW'’s. And now with even more photo goodness!


As reported at Sky.com: New Abuse Pics Emerge

Now, are we really shocked? Did we think that it was a one time thing? Kinda like that time your girlfriend caught you cheating on her and you told her this was the first time and it would never happen again?

More importantly, do we really care?
Torture and human physical abuse should not happen in a civilized world, right? But is a time of war classified as "“civil"”?

Are the prisoners that are caught by the Iraqi'’s treated better? We'’ll never know, at least not from a media source. And that'’s the main issue here. Not the torture, not the debate over who is following Geneva Convention standards, but rather the flooding of television/radio/newpaper/internet with news of atrocity.

The less I know about the goings on of war, the better off I feel. Call it the "ostrich theory"” of daily living if you wish. Bottom line is we are propagandizing ourselves in the foot. I tend to agree with the Born Again Redneck: If a bit of information gleamed from smacking around a POW proves useful, then I'’m all for it.

Of course, we really have to hand to it to our troops. How hard is it NOT to take pictures? You guys are supposed to be smarter than that. This is not a frat boy kegger that gets out of hand and might prove to have embarrassing photos from some coeds, this is war ya dumb shit!
Things like this can get you removed from duty, and not in a good way. Good luck trying to find a job after you get back to the states and you’re photo'’s plastered all over the news with captioning that reads "“inhumane"”, "likes to torture"”, etc. It'’s not quite the same as being branded as one who does not play well with others.
 
Comments:
You have made too many irrational, illogical, and utterly incomprehensible statements for me to address them all.

Ha!
 
Thanks for the plug, Mellanman.
