It's time for a show of hands. Who all has been damaged by the torture of the Iraqs and all the tremendous collateral damage that was predicted to ensue? I realize that the Iraqis who were photographed still feel it because the media (can you tell I got a thing against the media) feels a need to repeat this torture by showing the photos AD NAUSEUM. If shame was the pain they felt why keep inflicting it on them. Do we really need to make sure every sob in the world needs to know what some Iraqi looks like naked? It had been suggested that it will take 50 years to repair the damage so I wanna get a timeline going here so I can document out progress. I need some verification that this damage was a direct result of tortured Iraqis and damage that results due to arab hatred prior to the incident are naturally void. Also void are those who are appalled that Americans could do such a thing. That damage is a result of your fairy tale visions that we are all incapable of such a thing. If you are damaged because of your anger that these few make the rest of our troops look bad please tell me who it is that thinks all our troops are like the troops who did this. Our troops morale is the responsibilty of their commanders who I feel can easily make the distintion between a soldier and bonehead. Have faith . Our men will not hang thier heads for long unless its to duck bullets. Saudi Arabia is now asking opec to increase production----ooops thats a good thing-not damaging. Threats by Osama and radical clerics? So whats new. The people who believed them before see us as the great Satan and this is something that a great Satan would do. Now the radical clerics have more credibilty? I doubt it but if they get a few more converts are they going attack us? Thats void to. Its already been done PRIOR to the torture. OK put on your thinking caps. I'm really open to here proof that Americas credibilty has been damaged so badly that we need to feel as bad as people say we should. ok hands--do I see any hands?? STAY THE COURSE !
