This is what occurs when you leave the Army in charge of things.

I have a question. If this had happened with Sadaam being in charge, wouldn`t this be a war crimes tribal inquiry into this? Should this be under war crimes? I have no idea, but these are Iraqi prisoners that were taken by an invading force. Also, would the president and his In-Charge staff be directly responsible for this as well and can be tried? I am not trying to start something and so not really know the laws of engagement, but just anturally cane to this by the events that I have heard in the past about leaders that they want to try before the tribunal. Of course this is not a Crimes Aainst Humanity case, but this should still fall under war crimes and is directed at one race of people. Just a thought.

Well it would seem the insurgents of Fallujah did not realize that those 4 contractors were human either. Do I have to rehash the pictures and attrocities?

So are you comparing yourself to terrorists now?
America is supposed to, used to stand for somthing better, something the people of the world could look up to. But as we can see this ideal no longer exists neither in her military nor in a large portion of her popluation.
Yes, lets do what the terrorisis do, but then how are we any better than them?
Well, I have found some corroboration to what I have been thinking about on this sudden display of horrible prisoner torture in mainstream media.

The question to now ask, using critical thinking, what is the strategy behind this sudden display of horror in mainstream media? Well, those of us who believe that mainstream media in the U.S.A is controlled, or anywhere around the world, by "Intelligence Services", then maybe this is being used for some political end.
Even the war crimes going down as we watch them unfold are engineered, designed, condoned and even ordered by the intelligence agencies...to damage the reputation of this great country of ours, to foment the Arab world for WWIII and drag to us through the mud internationally in order to bring us down and make us the bad guys, the Evil Empire--SO THAT--so that the "International Community", i.e. the UN World Government can step in as the savior and be the good guys to "save the day" and thenceforth America will become just another province of the global neo-feudal system just as Nazi Germany became absorbed in the new European Community, and now the vastly expanding EU Soviet.

I'd like to know where all this outrage was when it was Saddam and his boys doing all the stuff they did.
It seems to me that we should focus on past evil deeds as well.
