The pictures which sparked claims UK soldiers abused Iraqis were staged at a British barracks by Territorial Army (TA) members, it has been reported.

Sources told the Daily Telegraph the photographs were set up in a Bedford MK lorry at Kimberley TA base in Preston.

The regiment accused of the abuse has demanded an apology from the Daily Mirror for publishing the images, but the paper has stood by their accuracy.

But Mirror editor Piers Morgan quickly countered: "The Daily Mirror does not accept that the MoD has proved these photographs are faked.

The pictures were most likely released to help highlight the abuse in Iraq, where there are four or five cases being actively investigated in British regiments alone. However, the damage has most likely been done, and the insurgents are probably planning their retaliations... It is completely counter logical to suppose that they would call off any attack now that the pictures have been proved 'staged'.

The discreditation to the British army and the Coalition has been done, and global opinion will be damaging for years to come.

This is good to hear for the UK troops but as mentioned:

The freakin' liberal arse, money hungry, 'needs an arse kicking media' has already smelt or dealt the damage!
Articles and experts can refute the authenticity of the photos, but the media and those believing in the proofs of the photos will claim that they are real and are merely being called fake to save face. You know, its kinda like if those Iraqi WMDs are found in significant quantites, they will be scoffed at as being planted, fake, etc. Likewise with these

Damage is already done, courtesy of the media!

Those bastards have no appreciation for what they have done... The number of lives that will be lost directly because of what they have done...
I think THEY should be hung!
