    An article from the Toronto Star that shows that the abuse from Abu Gharaib prison was widespread and that coalition military intelligence officers themselves estimate that somewhere between 70 and 90 per cent of those whom they detain have been picked up by mistake and are guilty of nothing at all, except the crime of living in an occupied country and stumbling into a foreign-administered hell.

    Based on Taguba's findings and on those of the Red Cross, here are some of the disturbing snapshots that we have yet to see ? pictures of hell in Iraq.

    One naked detainee is forced to stand on a box with a sandbag on his head and with wires attached to his fingers, toes and penis to simulate electrical-shock torture.

    A male military guard rapes a female detainee.

    A guard smashes a chemical light and pours the phosphoric liquid on several detainees.

    A detainee is beaten with a broom handle and a chair.

    A detainee has his head slammed against a wall and his guard promptly stitches up the wound himself.

    A hooded detainee is made to lie down on what is likely a running truck engine, burning him so badly he requires three months in hospital, extensive skin grafts over much of his body and the amputation of a finger.

    A detainee is force-fed a baseball bat, which is then secured in place with a scarf.

    Male detainees are forced to parade naked in public, with women's underwear wrapped over their heads.

    Detainees are made to sit for hours in direct sunlight in 50-degree temperatures or forced to remain in awkward positions for hours at a time.

    Detainees are kept naked in solitary confinement without light for days at a time.

    A 28-year-old detainee, married with two children, is beaten to death by his captors, and his death is officially attributed to cardio-respiratory arrest-asphyxia, cause unknown.

    According to the Red Cross report, coalition military intelligence officers themselves estimate that somewhere between 70 and 90 per cent of those whom they detain have been picked up by mistake and are guilty of nothing at all, except the crime of living in an occupied country and stumbling into a foreign-administered hell

    What the media is doing is criminal. they have all the photos. they are just trickling them out to milk this as long as they can. If they had any integrity, they would just release everything they had in one shot so we know the whole damn story. Instead they string people's outrage along adding another stoke to the fire when it starts to simmer out.

    All the while, An american is decapitated and its second rate news.

    I just joined the message board and haven't read most of the threads but I'm pretty sure that there isn't a post that shows how widespread and sadistic the treatment of innocent Iraqi civilians is by the American occupation.

    Were you there in Abu Gharab? Or are you here just to incite a flame war? Read some of the threads before you feign "but I'm pretty sure that there isn't a post that shows "

    If you didn't bother to read the threads, and then post this crap it makes you a fucking troll, and I don't think anybody is in the mood for your shit today.

    Everybody needs to back off on this and realize that this IS a new poster, despite how angry the post makes you.

    :eek: The NERVE.

    I wonder if I stroll on over to the thread on the beheaded American if I'd see a post from your showing your outrage at THAT act. For some reason, I highly doubt I'll find anything.

    I'm surprised at the outrage expressed by some because of this incident. The late Mr. Berg made a decision to go to Iraq knowing that it was going to be a dangerous place. He knew the risks and decided to go anyway. Does the manner in which he was killed really matter?

    That's 50 degrees celsius which equates to 122 degrees fahrenheit. I should have added that to the post.

    Russ, I'm making an attempt to back you up as a new poster so don't backstab me on this by inciting more shit and make ME ban you, k? Take some more time, read some of the other threads and see how most people have already stated how they've reacted.
