    What really makes me sick about those pictures is that the people doing it are smiling in everyone like they just caught a huge fish or won the world peace price. It sickens me to know that there are people out there that think what they are doing to other people just because they are the "enemy", is something worth smiling about and being proud of.

    They who? Those people being humiliated, abused, and photographed? Kind of hard to tell for sure when the soldiers take it upon themself to be judge and jury. So do you think it's fair that because some Iraqis do it to their citizens, or captured soldiers, our soldiers can find some Iraqis and do the same to them, whether or not they had anything to do with it? And it wouldn't have been so disgusting if the soldiers weren't clearly enjoying themselves, piling naked bodies with a huge grin. Anybody who can take such pleasure at the degredation of another human being really scares me.

    Exacly, Ilovemyguitar. It is so disturbing to know that people like that are defending the states. No one has the right to treat anyone like that. It doesn't matter what country your from and who your doing it to. :mad:

    just because a few sick american soldiers disgrased us doesn't mean our entire army is like this. look at the iraqis, every single soldier is like the ones seen in the pics.

    THere is one woman in particuliar that I would like to have a "talk" with. (In that picz)

    To be honest with you, I'm not surprised at all that those soilders are doing stuff like that and I bet that more in Iraq are doing the same. Thanks to the fuckers who are supposed to "help", they are making things worse for the rest of the world. More grudges will be held, more killings will happen, more anger.

    I wonder if you have sufficient intelligence to see the utter hypocrisy and ignorance of that statement.

    I agree, its messed up, and wrong, but all this media attention makes me sick. That guy got his head chopped off because of the media and these pictures being all over the place. WHAT ABOUT THAT?

    see some people say 'theyre probably doing the same thing to our soldiers" or "its not the whole army", and so on and so forth, but all of those statements, excuses for justifying a horrible thing....this sort of thing has no justification, the even in itself, irrelevant to ANYTHING else is sick and nothing but this incident should influence your thoughts of it

    those people should be punished "Liberating Iraq" my ass

    What did you expect ? It's a war.
    This is isolated anyway, it's not like all the POWs receive this special treatment.

    Actually antimatter, the abuse was both widespread and longrunning. Reports on such abuse were already being provided by Amnesty and Human Rights Watch representatives a year ago.

    No surprise it took so long to find its way into the public arena.

    Since "man's inhumanity to man" has been known about for centuries, with these photos reflecting "mild" or "almost tame" abuses compared to those committed in earlier wars, one question seems to be the question about why the U.S. military command was so lax about ordering subordinates in charge of interrogation to use only the approved methods? According to the Newsweek article on the abuse, subordinates were indeed ordered to rough the prisoners up so that they would give information; however, they weren't told to follow internationally approved procedures for interrogation. Indeed, if the reporting is correct, subordinates had been given praise for their previous "work" with prisoners. So now we have a national scandal on our hands that will add to the dangers U.S. citizens already face in their futures. And Iraqi soldiers and their families have suffered in ways the internationally approved methods could have cirumvented. That is not to say that any abuse of another human being is the best way to handle international conflict. However, since governments approve it, they at least ought to handle it responsibly, in my view.
