Would the Iraqi military be under the same Moral Microscope as the United States currently is?

The Iraqis are defending their homeland from traitors who use all means necessary to create terror.

Do you think the Iraqi police and military should be able to use similar guerilla tactics to defeat them (as the US is morally unable to fight a war in this manner) or should the Iraqis strive to maintain a "moral highground" and rely on law and not stoop to the level of the insurgents?

US is morally unable to WHAT?!?!

Since when has the US worried about "morals" eh, were morals involved when Wilson pooped on the Philllipenes or Hailti? (this is 1890 someting kids)
Or were they worried about "morals" when USING TERROR (the US is THE ONLY COUNTRY to be indicted by the World Court for " the unlawful use of force") on Nicaragua?

How about the indirect support (through military "aid" etc) for human rights abuses in Turkey or Columbia or Indonesia... I bet "morals" were top of the agenda!!

The world court is a liberal cescpool of PC. Are we back to american imperialisim?

The Iraqi's can and will used tactics familiar to them. Our military is hampered by a fear of liberal media "opinion" and whinning.

We are only holding them back...................

Of course they should take the moral highground.
If they resort to the same tactics as Saddam Hussein's henchmen, you would not be able to say they were 'liberated'.

The US under a moral microscope... eeeewwww... what an image view that conjures up.

You military is hampered by normal folks who give a @$%!@#$. Nothing more.

If the media is so liberal how come large portions of the US started to think Saddam was linked to 9/11 and Al-Queda? How come the media manages to swing public BELIEF (not opinion) in what is fact and what not, very liberal indeed.

Hey, you guys forgot trying oust President Hugo Chavez in the Venezuela coup because of his plans for Venezuelan oil. That was one of my favourite US 'moral' interventions.

Moral? Pull the other one.
