Upon seeing the photos of six U.S. soldiers abusing Iraqi POWs, I nearly punched my fist through a wall.....and NOT the one Gorelick helped to build. Needless to say, I hardly EVER trust ANYTHING CBS reports, but this time they have nailed it, unfortunately. Their report brought to light that six soldiers from the 800th military police physically abused, mentally tortured[they hooked up fake electrical devices to the POWs' genitals & threatened to shock them], and humiliated numerous Iraqi POWs for their own depraved entertainment. This occurred in the exact same prison, Abu Ghraib, where Saddam, his rotting sons, and his thugs tortured, raped, and killed thousands upon thousands of Iraqis, usually innocent of any crime. Now, these individuals HAVE probably committed crimes against us or their fellow Iraqis, but the soldiers have committed crimes FAR worse with their filthy, violent debauchery. President Bush, by all accounts, is going through the roof over this incident, as I am sure Rummy, Condy and others are, as well. President Bush has ordered that these soldiers face charges at a court-martial and, most likely, brig time and dishonorable discharges. However, if I were president, I would go much farther: I would charge these six soldiers with treason and make sure that they spent at LEAST ten years in prison. Harsh, you say? NOT EVEN CLOSE. The radicals with whom we are fighting and a LOT of the arab world, en masse, believe the worst about us and this just proves them RIGHT! Before this, we could truthfully tell Iraqis, the Middle East, and the whole world that Al Jazeera & other radical islamic propaganda machines are 100% liars. We could prove that their stories about us targeting civilians, stealing Iraq's oil, and wishing to conquer arab land were complete lies. Well, fu*k all of that NOW! These stupid, mentally deranged criminals- they don't DESERVE the title of "soldier"- have detonated a MOAB on America's ethical landscape, thus destroying our moral high ground in one fell swoop. So, you STILL think treason is going too far? Well, what is the definition of treason?....Giving aid and/or comfort to the enemy. Al Jazeera, the media wing of Al Qaeda, has now posted these images all over the Mid East, and there is not one fu*king thing we can say to refute these charges, for they are true. Just when our coalition tv station and new moderate arabic network, one very "fair & Balanced," are taking hold in Iraq & other arab nations, we have been handed a HUGE PR setback. Now, every time Al Jazeera broadcasts the next filthy lie about us, Iraqis & others will remember this incident and be FAR more likely to believe it. Matter of fact, I am sure that Al Jazeera, knowing this fact, will become even MORE devious & bold in their deceitful propaganda. We have given them the rope with which they will use to hang us in the public. They have won a HUGE victory in their desire to keep the Iraqi people in bondage, hating us for acts we have never committed.......and we handed it to them on a silver platter. 99% of our soldiers are brave, intelligent, honorable men & women, and THEY now have been besmirched by the evil deeds of these few bad apples. The fact that these pictures hit the world stage only a week after Pat Tillman, like so many others, sacrificed his life so that Iraqis & Afghans could be free and we Americans can live a life free from terrorism truly disgusts me to a point of anger and, nearly, tears. Now, if a soldier captures a terrorist who has just killed some of his fellow soldiers, I would have no problem with them pushing them down onto their kness and putting a bullet in the back of his head. That said, these POWs might have only been common criminals, and these "soldiers" took them from their secure cells, stripped them naked, and tortured and humiliated them. WE DO NOT DO THIS! WE ARE BETTER THAN SADDAM & HIS THUGS! WE ARE AMERICANS, THE PROTECTORS OF MORALITY, HUMANITY, COMPASSION, & STRENGTH, NOT BRUTALITY. These American thugs are a disgrace to their uniform, to this country, and to humanity. They should be labeled as traitors and their lives should be ruined, for I am sure that some of our brave soldiers are going to pay the price for their acts WITH THEIR LIVES!
