    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!

    Well written as usual. The 6 "soldiers" are a disgrace to the country and screwing up what we are trying to do in Iraq.

    Agreed. Their service was commendable for going. However their actions have deemed them dishonorable and disgrace the name of the US military. Military prison is more than acceptable for their disgraceful acts that have given a bad name to their unit.

    a bad name to their unit????? you do realize that this incident alone has cost us any opportunity at pacifying the occupation of iraq and tarnished the war on terror, right?

    It doesn't matter that only 6 out of 130k+ acted in a disgusting and unprofessional manner, this will be seen as indicative of all american behavior.

    you're a blind naive fool. talk about idiocy, you need to look in the mirror. these people will see and know america only by those pictures and the story. you've too much tunnel vision for your own good, its obvious you don't see how the real world out there is going to truly react to this issue.

    You miss the point RWA. Al Jazeera & co will run this endlessly to prove how correct all of their previous propaganda is. These 6 have no idea how much damage their idiotic behavior caused.

    I can fault the biased US media for many things, but you can't lay this at their feet.

    DK, you're scaring me with your increased spiral of anger:D

    I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop and for Kerry and the Lib media to refer to the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam alongside this story. In 3... 2... 1...

    Not that this nude Arab photo incident involves any rape, torture, or murder, all more serious war crimes from Vietnam.

    But that's what they'll do, draw comparisons.

    While the murder and mutulation of US civlians invoked a range of reactions from denouncement to celebration, there was zero expectation in the Arab world for justice against those responsible, by any local or even a greater Islamic authority.

    Yet justice against those involved here is not even a question in the media. It's already started up the chain of command.

    rtwngAvngr, is absolutely correct though, Idiots will read this as another "humuliation" inflicted by America. And every time there is a a rape, torture, or murder of any US civilians they will bring this up to show justification for these truly henious acts.

    No arguement here
    The part of RWA's post that I was addressing was the Those who know americans, know better part. There are too many people outside of the US that think we are the evil empire (to cop my favorite Reagan phrase). As for the idiots, they already manufacture enough BS on their own, they don't need any help. Too many of the "idiots" are out there ready to use this incident to further sway public opinion.

    I don't doubt that. What I think RWA was saying, contrary to most of the angry posts here, is exactly what you mean. This incident is rather meaningless to the seething of the Arab world, who is complient in failing to enact justice among their own sadistic acts.

    Any rational person can tell the difference between the US and it's reaction to inhuman treatment among their own, and the many Arab regimes who will at the most "condemn" a far more horrible act.
