there is a gigantic difference between a few soldiers acting out of line and abusing some iraqis and a short ill tempered man who abuses his whole
nation, feeds them propaganda through his own government controlled media, starves his people making them resort to canabilism, puts a higher priority
on building a huge military at the expense of helping his own people out, forces his people to participate in "parades" with his military to try and
show the world his people love him and how powerful he is...
there is a huge difference.
let alone the fact that the entire world is up in arms over a few soldiers abusing prisoners in iraq (i am not making light of the situation) but say
little about a man who has starved and killed 10's of thousands of his own people.
there is also a huge difference between humiliating prisonsers (not to say i condone it, as i condemn it) and outright killing your citizens that
oppose your rule.
oh yes crazy lil kim has so much moral high ground to stand on. [/sarcasm]
give me a break!
this isnt a problem WE created this is a problem a few idiots created and now we are all taking the blame.
a few soldiers do not represent an entire nation! a few soldiers actions does NOT mean imply or suggest that this is condoned or what we as
americans want. this does not mean our entire military is like this.
