There’s nothing even remotely funny happening in Iraq these days, but judging from the gruesome images that have begun seeping out of the dungeons of Baghdad, irony clearly is in abundant supply. Photographs of unimaginable degradation make one wonder exactly when the heroic liberators of Saddam Hussein’s desert hellhole decided it might be fun to borrow a page from the Baathist playbook and hold auditions for “Coalition Fear Factor” and “America’s Dumbest War Criminals.”

Forget for a moment the damage done to Uncle Sam’s reputation in the world community, and the many serious political and legal implications of the systemic torture of prisoners. Forget, even, that what we’ve seen in the past few days likely is the tip of a very large iceberg. Forget, too, what Americans would demand of our leaders if tapes revealed that imprisoned U.S. soldiers were being similarly abused (indeed, the siege of Fallouja began only after the bodies of four murdered civilian “contractors” were desecrated by anti-coalition mobs).

She's not a "dyke" you homophobic prick— she's got a boyfriend. Do you CHOOSE not to read newspapers, or do they just use too many big words for you? MORON!

The Iraqis prisoners are being treated better than they should be.

Lets see, take a bunch of reservists, put them in charge of an Iraqi prison, give them absolutely no lessons in the geneva convention, but absolutely fill them up with hatred for these insurgent/freedom fighters (pick for yourself).

Jake it's ok, I'm sure you think any woman who would join the armed services is a dyke, concepts like duty are beyond you.

Yeah if you don't like the way those jawas are treated why don't you go and give em a big fucking hug...i'm sure they won't treat you like they did the civilian contractors. How about military people aren't perfect and if you saw your friends die on a daily basis in a god forsaken hell hole you'd been stuck in for longer than you were told, maybe you'd do the same thing or worse. Are you all that naive that you think other countries actually follow the geneva conventions? I know let's ask Jessica Lynch maybe she could tell us how nicely she was treated...WAKE THE FUCK UP. Bad thing happen in war. So the next time a terrorist bombs something and it takes out someone you love don't get pissed, don't beg for revenge, be perfect just like you want military members to be. If you don't like the military and what they do for us why don't you get off your fat internet asses, enlist, and change things? That's right it's much easier to be an armchair quarterback when your ass isn't on the line isn't it? You pukes make me sick.

Hozebeast, you betray your ignorance with that entire rant. I'm not going to waste my TIME trying to educate you on every point, BUT

• "civilian contractors" are MERCENARIES ya doughhead— they deserve EVERYTHING they get

• The USA is an illegal occupier of land siezed in an illegal attack. The Iraqi fighters are not "insurgents" unless you are trying to justify an American EMPIRE, ya dickwad!

• Jessica Lynch was NOT mistreated by the Iraqis— she's said that herself. She was actually treated very well by the howspital staff, who alerted US forces to her whereabouts and offered to transport her to them. If you get all your info. off of "Faux News," I guess you wouldn't know that all the rest of that horseshit is PROPAGANDA aimed at MORONS!!

• Finally, IRAQ NEVER HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH 9/11, so to quote you back to you, WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!!

Pick up a freaking newspaper soimetime ya DOOFUS!!

What did you expect from these American morons. I had to work with them in the first Gulf war, they were the worst soilders i have ever seen. Most Americans are dumb shits anyway. That picture just underlines what pathetic crap they are.

Mule, I am an American Military member. Won't bother to go into my education level or IQ score, but I was in the original Desert Storm and would like to invite you to comment face to face with me on us "American morons". You can contact me at dbing@i-m 10; Maybe we can set up a little conference just between you and me. I'll tell you about some of the courageous "Amercian morons" and their sacrifices. You can edify me with your wisdom.

You have to admit that A LOT of the people who enlist nowadays are those who fucked up in high-school or were too stupid and dropped out. Give me a decent cause and i'll fight for it, until then, let the retards serve. I love that shit about duty. As if we have a duty to invade another country who didn't threaten us, which they call "occupation" by the way, and bitch when they shoot at us and then torture them. You say "give them a break", fuck that, we threatened them and we deserve what we get. If you want to lecture about duty, what about the duty to not kill people just because our "leader" tells us to. If you were truly honorable, you wouldn't be there. Honorable people don't have to torture people to feel better about a loss, only monsters do that. I love how people think that humanity gets a "time-out" during war. We weren't defending shit, it was them that were defending themselves. I'm sure those American troops would have been shot at by Iraqi troops while sitting around at home, so you're right, it's justifiable. Ass.

1. Not all civilian contractors are mercenaries.

2. They (Iraq) refused to offer sufficient evidence that their WMD projects were dismantled.. The usa took action after years of complaining about it..

3. Lynch WAS treated well by the HOSPITAL staff.. but as for the others that handled her.. hmm.. there is so much that you are missing because you will never read the real reports.. all media is slanted.. and no media will ever get the whole picture..

4. Iraq, like a lot of predominantly Islamic nations, did (and in the case of other nations still do) turn a "blind eye" to terrorist associated organizations (and in some cases they funded those groups) because it is political suicide to go after groups who can claim to be Islamic fundamentalist organizations with only incidental numbers of members with an extremist nature.. and it can be rather convenient to feign ignorance when these groups conduct attacks on your enemies.. if you look closely you will see that Hozebeast did not mention 9/11..

no one nation is innocent of the condition of the world today.. It is all a really fascinating power struggle.. While many people believe that the posturing of the European nations is bourne of “higher ideals, morality, and humanity” it is really just another political posturing.. World politics is all a song and dance.. Smoke and mirrors.. Feign and attack... enjoy the show..
