Scapegoat?

Lynndie England, 22, is on trial again in connection with the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. (No, I don't know who the lady is in the picture with her - but I think she was always walking in and out of the courtroom with England during the first trial. And, no, I don't know if the court has a dress code)

What she did is inhumane, however, was anyone hurt? Was anyone killed? Was anyone tortured?
Please..let it go. Our enemies have done worse and never was eaten up by the very law that protects us all. And by the way....why are we over there anyways?

Has craig been drinking again or is his statment a reflection of current right wing thinking?

Craig;
The deal is that we were there to liberate the people from a murderous abusive etc, madman; and it doesn't look too good when the liberators are doing the same thing as the oppressors they are trying to kick out.

atticus, I disagree. We are not there to liberate people from an abusive madman. We are there because an out of control cowboy set out to assuage the ego of a family that has egg on it's face because daddy didn't finish the job he arguably was justified in doing in the first Gulf War.
If we want to truly liberate people from repressive and brutal regimes why not start with China, then on to N. Korea, Myanmar(Burma to us old folks), Iran, even Cuba.....that would be an easy one. We wouldn't have to invade. We could just lob missles from the Florida Keys......no U.S. casualties!

Fluff:
I agree with the Cowboy part; however, I don't know about the lob job! Might not be much of the country or the people left to liberate.

atticus
as an aside, why the blog name? Anything to do with Atticus Finch, as in To Kill A Mockingbird?

WHAT???? No comments about her (very obvious) lesbian lover??? What has this blog come too...usually everyone is all over the gay stuff.

She went, served, followed orders. She is a heroine.

I think she is pretty much a loser. We didn't go over there to humiliate and degrade people. I am ashamed by her behavior.

I don't however think it is all that criminal. No one was killed or had electricity applied to their genitals or had their fingernails pulled out.

She certainly should be punished for it but the punishment should fit the crime.

Looks like the lesbian entrance photo to Frilly's on Karaoke Night!

Some people really do have fluff between their ears.
