Collateral Damage

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | After Abu Ghraib
talks about the abuse of prisoners. If the story is true, the the US Army seems no different from other armies when it comes to being unjust, brutal, and uncivilized. Sad. Via Simon

    There can be no doubt that abuses were perpetrated. The actions may have been uncivilised but at least in western civilisations perpertrators of such abuses are rightly subjected to the justice system. In dictatorships such as Iraq was, the perpertrators would’ve got away with it. You must bear in mind the Guardian is left wing paper that sees conspiracies and injustice in everything. And I’m speaking as an English ex-Guardian reader who got fed up with it’s constant whinging tone.

    I cannot agree more with you. One sign of a civilized society is that the perpetrators of injustice are dealt with by the law, and are held accountable for their actions. I can only hope that the justice meted out is true and sufficient.
    I did not know that the Guardian leant left. Thank you for letting me know.
