good food for thought;
Seems an agreeable statement, if just a little pessimistic.
It's the "pro human rights" LIBERALS who mucked things up in this area with their frenzied worldwide reportage of Abu Garib that intentionally damaged U.S. credibility. (Of course the far left is not really concerned with human rights anyway.)
no the US damaged its credibility when they decided to use torture in their
interrogations in Iraq.
No damn it! It's the soldiers who tortured the prisoners who ruined the US' credibility, NOT the media that reported it. This is simple stuff.
Oh yeah. A sack on the head and a titty twister.... torture. mkay.
Yeah, you're understating it a little bit there chum. I guess the dod fired those soldiers because they gave their prisoners titty twisters. Yeah, that's what the world-wide furor was over-titty twisters. Get real man. You're not fooling anybody.
All's fair in love and war. THis is true. It in no way "reflects the core values of our society".
I don't think it does either. But the fact remains that the blame for the incident rests with the soldiers who committed the torturous acts and took the photos, not with the press who printed them. It's the press' job to let us know about stuff like this because the soldiers do represent our country abroad--and when they act dishonorably, it reflects poorly on the US.
See. Reasonable thinking people don't consider torture to be dihonorable in course of conducting a war. It's part of it. It's dirty business. Keep on this issue, demboy, you guys will lose with it. NOBODY CARES.
