Iraq Abuses

The abuses of Iraqi POWs by American troops is a fact. All that remains to be seen is whether the incident was isolated or a systemic (off-topic: I love that word) malaise. While many people will conclude that it’s something best forgotten by a New Iraq, it illustrates what will happen when a country has stressed-out, overworked troops on foreign soil. Even if the people in the country support such a foreign “invasion,” such as the case of the WW-II deployment of American troops to Newzealand to set up a base to attack Japan, tensions will arise, although in that case, it was more the perception of the Marines as randy wife-stealers than anything that harmed American interests.

And for people who think that it’s something happening half-way around the globe that we needn’t be concerned about, think again. [2]
