The Iraqi's do not see the police force the way the west tries to catergorize them as.
They are raping,murdering and kidnapping as much as the insurgency.
they are so infected with insurgent aspects, that the people do not trust the police...
These women didnt just go and kill these policeman for no reason... they were marked men simply being policemen.. something must off happened for them to snap and kill them.
To me, all this is, is the US accepting one mans iron fisted approach.. because he likes the US....
they murdered the other fellow because he didnt like the US.
It takes a MAD man to rule MAD people.
Saddam was the only person who kept things in check, and if we are going to go around executing everyone in Iraq that doesnt like the puppet government, or curropt police...
we might as well nuke the place and save alot of soliders.
What a F'up.

People you are forgetting that one of the reasons of taking Saddam was indeed because he killed his own people . . .
Now the new poppet regime is killing also its own people but this time US is backing up their legislation and now Is OK .
If you can no see the hypocrisy on all this then . . . I guess I give up.
Saddam killed Kurdish because they disagree with is regime . . .
Saddam killed Shiites because they disagree with his regime . . .
Now the US backed Shiite government is killing Sunnis and fellow tribal men also Shiites because they do not want the poppet government and the invaders and is OK . . .
Hypocrecy at its finest. . .

Marg, it's not the same thing. Saddam killed people because of who they were, or if they disagreed with him, or if he felt them untrustworthy.
The current Iraqi government has been executing folks that have committed some criminal act. There's a big distinction there.

Just change one evil for another one, plain and simple, change the wording for the opposer's of the regime and the occupation and criminal acts are criminal acts not matter what. . .
Is no excuse, no excuse at all.

What action do you think should have been taken against these women Marg?
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) Four Iraqi soldiers have been accused of raping a 50-year-old Sunni woman and the attempted rape of her two daughters in the second allegation of sexual assault leveled against Iraqi forces this week, an official said Thursday.
Rape report follows an allegation Monday by a 20-year-old Sunni woman that she was raped by three Iraqi policemen after she was detained during a search of her house in western Baghdad.
She was taken to a police garrison where the attack allegedly occurred Sunday but she was rescued by U.S. soldiers, she said.dwb.fresnobee.com...
Al-Maliki's government cleared the policemen after an investigation lasting less than a day and accused Sunni activists of fabricating the allegation to undermine support for the security forces during the ongoing Baghdad crackdown.

Can you all please provide evidence that this is STILL happening? Because as far as I know this happened very few times, and has been stopped and taken care of.
Rape accusation feeds into sectarian divisions in Iraq
By MARC SANTORA, New York Times
First published: Wednesday, February 21, 2007
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The most wicked acts are spoken of openly and without reserve in Iraq. Torture, stabbings and bodies ripped to pieces in bombings are all part of the daily conversation. Rape is different. Rape is not mentioned by the victims, and rarely by the authorities. www.kidnapnews.com...
Was There Rape? Depends on Whether You're Shiite or Sunni
ABC News A woman claims she was raped. She takes the extraordinary step of going on television to tell her story. The prime minister said she's a liar. Her religious sect said she's a victim. A government official said it's a paid propaganda campaign. In Iraq today it's come to this: A woman's body is a sectarian battlefield. Her name is Sabreen al Janabi, and she's from a prominent Sunni tribe. She is now the focal point of religious tensions in Iraq ever since she appeared on television accusing Iraqi police of raping her. In interviews with the Arab television...
