My question is: do you people need to join Tony Soprano's sister in anger management classes?
Is there no sense of proportionality?
Sure there is.
Do you all think that just because someone is a "rag-head" that they need to die just so we can sleep at night?
Defining raghead as any terrorist or terrorist supporter, then the answer is yes.
How about identifying who the perpetrators are and punishing them?
I have no problem with that.
And why do you blame the left and the press for publicizing the abuse in Abu Gharab? Are we supposed to sodomize prisoners with glow sticks and murder prisoners in cold blood? Is that necessary? Has anyone ever offered evidence that a dead prisoner gives good intelligence?
Those questions are too stupid to justify answers.
Some morons on here excuse sodomizing little Iraqi boys while they are in detention, because of what happened to the mercenaries in Falluja. But Falluja happened 5 months after the documented abused at Abu Gharab.
See previous answer.
And why are people abusing the victim's father for opposing the war? Is opposing the war not his right as an American? Do you want to live in a country where no one questions the use of force?
I, for one, am not abusing the idiot,oops, father for being an anti American, liberal, ANSWER worshipping person.
I supported the war but I am not happy with the prosecution of the war. Am I a bad person if I complain about Rumsfeld's performance?
I AM CALLING YOU A LIAR. YOU ARE A TYPICAL PEACENIK, LEFTIST USEFUL IDIOT. Part 2, no you are not bad for complaining, just stupid.
. There are too many idiots on this post.
I repeat my response to your post 63.
You had your 15 minutes of fame so head back to DU and yuk it up with your buddies.
Then again the guards could have been deliberately bad. Sure they'd face court martial and punishment. American soldiers have also thrown grenades into US officers' tents. Which is worse? "Torture"/"humiliation" or "murder"?
Certainly there are some fifth columnists in the American military. The punishment for (attempted) murder is far worse than for the jailhouse antics.
CBS is to blame for trying to say this was wide-spread and sanctioned behavior.
I'll blame the terrorists for this horrific act, but I'll not sit by and see the media who stirred up and misrepresented a story given a pass for doing so.
Mohammed was/is the false prophet
The Abomination of Desolation is the Al-Aqsa mosque sitting in place of the Temple.
It looks like things are falling into place.
I have to say that was one of the longest minutes of my life. Horrible, evil, sick, saddistic, insane, cruel, evil, evil, evil.
Poor Nick may you rest in peace.
It isn't just the fact that pictures and videos were taken of the illegal actions. The aberrant behavior that led to the taking of the photos is to be blamed. Since there isn't anything as "responsible journalism" anymore, I'm sure another news channel would have run these photos, especially if somebody like Hackworth been the conduit to get them into their hands.
It's ironic that some of these news channels refused to show the scenes of 9/11 on the first anniversary, but yet they would jump at the chance to put dirt like this out. It doesn't surprise me one bit. Afterall, showing films from 9/11 might bolster President Bush's image among the American people. In their eyes, it's more important to diminish his stature and put doubt in the people's minds as it relates to his leadership in the war.
"I knew he was decapitated before," said the father, Michael Berg. "That manner is preferable to a long and torturous death. But I didn't want it to become public."
Suzanne Berg said she was told her son's body would be transported to Kuwait and then to Dover, Del. She said the family had been trying for weeks to learn where their son was but that federal officials had not been helpful.
"I went through this with them for weeks," she said. "I basically ended up doing most of the investigating myself."
I send my prayers to Nick and his entire family, but his Mom's comment shows her disdain and disapproval for what Nick wanted to do in Iraq. Thoughts like that people should keep to themselves; not say them out loud after there has been a death. It shows she did not believe in her son's goals. Maybe she is not thinking her best; I would understand, I guess.
The sleezebag media whores who played the so-called Iraqi torture photos 24/7 are as much to blame for this kid's death as Al Qaida. An investigation of the so-called prison abuses would have been far more effective had it not been aired 24/7 by a bunch of d***able media whores whose only focus is getting their fellow travelers back into power.

Horrific and infuriating news from Iraq's Sunni triangle: "Suspected insurgents"--how's that for a euphemism--"killed four American civilian contractors in a grenade attack Wednesday in central Iraq," CNN reports:
In the end, I believe it is Kapinski which lead to the communication breakdown between officers and soldiers.
Are you telling me that she did instruct these people "in a military fashion" as to their duties and responsibilities at the prison at some point in time?
Are you telling me that the Red Cross reports were not discussed with her and any necessary action taken?
Are you telling me that her policy of "visiting each prison at least once in a three month period" is acceptable.
Are you telling me she had no authority? She says it was CIA territory so what she is telling me is that if she sees, or gets wind of something outside her box, she simply says "Not my box" and looks the other way?
I guarantee, if a dem were president they would NOT have shown the photos.
Why not? Because the pictures from day one clearly were the work of rogues who took personal pics and NOT under orders. The only reason the media ran with the pics was in order to say this was SOP under the Bush administration.
Along with the pictures were reports that said as much, thereby tarnishing the entire military and making them targets, which was why Myers asked CBS to hold off on airing the photos.
Maybe they should see the video. It sounds to me like it was quite long and torturous. Not just a slick one chop like in a guiotine.
CBS doesn't listen to Myers at all.
Remember she tried to get the raping of Juanita Broderick by Clinton story she did aired and they wouldn't do it until after the impeachment hearings were over.
For the life of me I don't know why she stays with them.
