Sorry. I can't buy that analogy. If your integrity is taken for granted — if that's how you are known — there's no reason or excuse to "plead to a lesser charge".<br><br>I have been in situations where someone has compromised my reputation. If they were under my supervision when they screwed up, it was my responsibility — period. If they were not under my supervision — if they screwed up on their own and pointed at me just to save their own @ss, I've had no problem denying responsibility. And I've never been doubted.<br><br>
It wouldn't matter if we dismembered those soldiers in a field with all the cameras of the world watching. <br>These terrorists don't care. They're looking for any execuse to kill and destroy. If we don't give them one, they make it up. <br>"Oh look! Those terrible Americans just bombed a milk factory." Never mind that they used prisioners to stand outside targets to act as a human shield. Would that have stopped them? Heck no! <br><br>Where was the outrage in the Arab countries when those Americans were slaughtered, burned, dragged through the streets being kicked and spit on, and ultimitly having their bodies hung from a bridge? What did they do to bring those killers to justice, to serve as an example?<br>They didn't. They didn't because they were giving us an example. An example that they don't care. That they approve of what happened. <br><br>Ask me if I care that they look at the treatment of those prisoners on the same level of the brutal killing of that kid. I don't. I don't care what the enemy thinks. <br><br>What, you think the victims of these captured creeps are upset with what's happening to them? Not a chance.<br><br>"You're off the edge of the map, mate! Here there be monsters!"

Its a good thing Rumsfeld doesn't have a job as important as say, an NFL head coach? Because if he did he would have already been fired. It doesn't matter if he directly ordered these tortures, rapes (and even deaths have been reported), the buck stops with the man in charge.<br><br>

Tell ya, like I said many times before -- America has no concept of what they are dealing with in that part of the world. Should have never stuck our noses in there because this is just the beginning. Shocking, but definitely doesn't surprise me too much knowing how fanatical these people are. <br><br>

Look Skul, you stupid dumbass. Aside from the photos of humiliation and torture there were also murders and rape in the prison run by the Americans now. So don't get all incensed about these fanatics taking off the head of this poor guy. We seem to be doing some pretty evil and nasty things ourselves. Sorry to call you that name, but in this case, if the shoe fits......<br><br>Yeah, yeah.....I know calling someone a stupid dumbass is dumb, but sometimes I get a little bit like a dumbass myself when I am confronted with dumberer than dumb. <br><br><br><br>
You know, Mike, you're opinion is as qualified as anyone elses. That you have to insult me is disappointing. <br><br>I don't have anything else to say to you.<br><br>"You're off the edge of the map, mate! Here there be monsters!"
