    Good news for the country atleast if the people in charge actually enforce the law.

    Although a thought just occured that maybe they are doing this after seeing the Americans get throttled for the frat pranks on the prisoners in Iraq. hmmm timing is interesting.

    Just like Sudan saying we have no room to talk to them about being on the human rights council, Iran quickly passes a self-righteous law that AL JAzeera can stoke the propaganda fire. All those peace loving Arabs over there are being persecuted by us evil Americans.:rolleyes:

    Thats a new one. Hadnt heard that one. But getting people naked and essentially embarssing them is a frat prank. Doesnt make it right but to be saying its somehow equivalent to Saddams rape and torture is ridiculous.

    while I wouldn't equate the rape and torture of husseins soldiers to the shameful abuse of some of the detainees there, I certainly would consider them more than frat pranks.

    It goes further than this also. I am starting to think that maybe we've only found the top of the heap.

    I hope not for our troops sake. A vast majority are good soldiers and are doing good work. To have these few taint everything they are doing is apalling.

    well, don't think I'm talking about hundreds of troops, more like 20 to 40.

    The guy shouldnt be nude. He should be fully clothed and behind bars. And who the fuck is the retard that was taking these pictures anyway?

    I hope that all the good that has been accomplished isnt glossed over because of the ridiculous acts of 20-40 troops.
