Today Bush promised a “full accounting” for the mistreatment of Iraqi people while praising Rumsfeld for doing an excellent job.
Seven soldiers have been charged as military court marshals are moving forward amidst Red Cross accusations the US had ignored their expressed concerns over prisoner abuse.
You have to really wonder how well thought out this war was planned. If the US is going to claim the moral high ground then it ought to have taken steps to ensure none of this nonsense happened in the first place.
Faster than this administration can do damage control, more and more evidence of Iraqi prisoner abuse continues to surface.
An impressively won ‘conventional’ war has now turned into urban guerilla warfare where the US no longer has the technological edge.
It’s mean … it’s nasty and it’s lethal. I’m beginning to see the point of those who say all that the US is accomplishing is making more enemies instead of ‘liberating’ a repressed people.
Perhaps they should have spent a little more time educating soldiers and planning Iraqi self-governance instead of reconstruction projects for Cheney’s companies. Time to go back to the drawing board boys and girls.
The moral high ground? Vietnam? Sounds more like Mogadishu.
