Abuse of Iraqi Prisoners

Day 75
On Abuse of Iraqi Prisoners

It saddens me that American military personnel are acting in this manner. I was hoping that we would be above this kind of behaviour. Coalition forces ought to handle themselves in a manner that sets the example for the world to follow. Coalition forces ought to treat prisoners in a manner that set the example to the world of how prisoners should be treated. This does not mean that we should provide four course meals and turn down their sheets at night. By the same token, prisoners should not be subjected to physical abuse or humiliation. Using such tactics only reduces us the to level of the animals we are trying to irradicate.

I hope those responsible are brought to justice.

Aloha
