Make them pay…
I’ve been involved in a new contract at work and that’s been diverting a huge amount of my attention from the daily news. That’s why I got suprised by the IM sent to me by my brother pointing me to an article on the photos from the Iraqi prison. You know the ones – the ones where supposedly honorable US Soldiers did Uday and Qusay proud with their treatment of prisoners they were supposed to be guarding. These disgusting piles of dung busily smearing shit all over the US military uniform and flag need to be held to account in a very, very public fashion. Their actions have severely damaged the reputation of the US Military, the US Government, and the American people. This is not acceptable by our standards. In fact, this is way, way past not acceptable.
I’m torn between wanting their sorry asses brought back to the US in prison orange jumpsuits and leg irons and then marched from Andrews Air Force Base to the brig at Quantico surrounded by family members of the men they mistreated. Family members armed with rattan canes. Hey, it’s only 39 miles. That or stand them up right there in Baghdad and have them shot.
Either way, the President rightly proclaimed he was disgusted over the event. Now follow through, sir. Make this a priority and get those idiots out of uniform as fast as the military code of justice allows.
