basing everything on one event is rather narrow minded and short sighted at best and ignorant at worst.
war is a terrible thing, POWs are mistreated on all sides as much as we want to think otherwise. i dont like to see people dying, whether its a soldier or an innocent civilian.

Iraqi's being tortured in U.S. run prisons, sick enough. Torture till death, is first degree murder in my book.

Why is it that we have a huge, huge uprising about a picture of our GI's torturing, .... no, not even torturing. TEASING, the Iraqi soldiers, to the point where our stupid ass president apologizes to the whole damn nation of Iraq, yet when they run full blown news coverage of them torturing our soldiers, dragging their dead corpses through the streets, it is fine and dandy?
How in God's name do you explain that?
Well, they weren't just teasing these Iraqis.
Some of them died.
It wasn't fine and dandy when those contractors were dragged through Iraq either. After that incident, they sent troops into that area and hundreds of Iraqis were killed by coalition soldiers. So it's not like that act went unpunished.
