Jury Told Abu Ghraib Abuse Was for Laughs

This story could be filed under 'S', for SICK FUCKS. I don't care how much someone is shooting at you, once they are captured, simply lock them in a cell and let a judge and jury deal with them. The average military officer in Iraq (mainly National Guard & Army Reserve) are not trained on how to handle POWs.

If these soldiers truly want to make people suffer, they should think of how their own families will feel knowing what their sons and daughters have done while serving our country.

I know that the percentage of soldiers involved in this scandal is a rather small number but it comes down to the old adage - one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. After this came into the open, the image of the American military has been tainted in the eyes of countries around the globe. It is no surprise that Indonesia's government wants foreign forces to withdraw by the end of March.
