So are all of these old pictures from 3 years ago, or are some of them new?|
People shouldn't get so rattled with the blood, because the blood doesn't necessarily indicate that US soldiers beat the POWs, though naive veiwers and irresponsible reporterts would like to believe/suggest this.
Whether they were captured by force or by retreat, I'm sure they were roughed up as they were being detained. What's wrong with that? If a man comes to my house with a gun, shoots at me then runs, and I later capture him...he's going to get roughed up pretty bad. Same thing you all are seeing with the pictures.
I personaly think the pictures seem odd, but not knowing if the apparent physical damage was caused by US troops (other than whe they were captured), I'd say you can't determine these pictures show torture. Forcing them to get naked is not torture. If Al qaeda captures me, i'd be a happy camper if that's all they do to me.
Heck, in picture number two we were even nice enough to give the guy a free dental exam. What other military would be so gracious? It's not like we are pulling out the gold teeth like hitler did to the jews.
The last guy in pick number 5 looks like he just got back from a hunting trip with Cheney. NOt a very good shot is he? I wonder if he ever even hit a duck/quail.
Real quick though, can someone point out to me which picture indicates, with absolute certainty, that the POW's life is in danger?
