another cute photo of 'our' girl in baghdad, playing dominatrix


thanks jmowreader, i hijacked the photo from your thread.

another horrific image of torture. this IS torture in this photo, some say that humiliation isn't really torture, but it is. hardcore.
it plays with the mind for years, maybe permanently.

i call this kind of shit WARNOGRAPHY. and remember, these photos were first published on an american porn site.

when the images of johnny smith from iowa come out, with johnny crawling on the floor naked on a leash held by iraqi captors, all holy hell is gonna break loose, and a horrible revenge will be wreaked on iraq because of it.

but then, we had it comin' huh? we all got it comin'

1. I'd love to see that guy get 5 minutes in a room alone with this dirtbag.
Let's see how tough she is then?

77. This would be a quote from your original post.
"I'd love to see that guy get 5 minutes in a room alone with this dirtbag."

This clearly states that you want to turn the abused Iraqi loose in her. If that was not your intent then prehaps a clearer posting of your message would work. If it was your intent I stand by everything I have said.

84. clearly states .... It does?
It clearly states that I want this prisoner to spend 5 minutes with this criminal. What he does with that time, who knows.... But maybe he would forgive her for her sins and let her be. He just might have a soul unlike the Criminal who had the leash on him.

If it wasn't your original intent then your wording could really use some work.

Edited on Thu May-06-04 03:14 PM by trumad
But you know what..I can vent...OK... Like this criminal will get 5 minutes in a room with this poor bastard.... She's back home pregnant with the other criminals baby, (I think it's his baby) and she's being hailed as a hero. My point is, is that she's a coward who would tremble if she was in a room alone with that guy.

Please don't lecture me about the morality of this thing because as an American we haven't a leg to stand on.

97. Whatever you say, Socrates
I suspect that in the future you will make a statement that contradicts your current statement on Ms. England. Call it a feeling, an intuition, a distaste occasioned by accumulated exposure to your bizarre posts, or - even more accurately - call it a general lack of will to spend more than 5 minutes thinking about your bullshit, much less searching for more of it. Bottom line: I don't trust you, or your methods, or your politics. Like most sane people, I don't go searching for evidence every time I'm skeeved by somebody. I trust my instincts most times, and they're usually right. As I said, time will tell. :-)

112. Blah Blah Blah
The tactics are tiresome. Good to admit. Charge in. Rant. Uninformed. Good to know. Blah-de-blah-de-blah-de-blah. I suppose this the kind of nonsense you take for internet cleverness. And I suppose it even was, back in 1996 or so. Your played-out chatroom commonplaces are just feeble and sad.

There was no "argument." There was no "charge in." There was no "rant." There was not even any need for "information." I described a feeling I had about you, about your utter lack of credibility, and I stand by it. I admit only that it is an intuition, and that I won't even bother supplementing it with an intellection, which would be a waste of my time and energy, given the smallness of the situation. I don't need to justify an intuition, any more than someone would have to justify it when some creep gives off the creeps. It's a skeev factor, and its raging.

...how we react to the outside world, and how we treat our families. Usually. The folks at Tyco, Enron, and Wal-Mart for all intents and purpose seem to be "feuck everyone and the horse they rode in on as long asi get more than my share" types. In general their children probably feel pretty pretty good to average about their parenting skills.

Do we want to start parsing which is more amoral and which isn't? Again, we are going to start getting into personal judgements. Morality is not universal. For some it isn't even static.

88. What a load of crap
Abusive human beings are abusive human beings. Have you ever been a cop? I have and I can say from experience that people who are violent outside the home....are violent inside the home. In fact their violent natures are generally a product of their upbringing....and what they have historically been programed with as acceptable behavior. Am I talking about criminals? Nope! I'm talking about my fellow suspect beating/wife beating cops.

This soldier should be tried in an Iraqi court by Iraqi citizens....and if found guilty of the rather obviouse crimes against humanity she has commited, she should be sentenced by Iraqi citizens as well. It would be a fine demonstration of our confidence in the newly minted Iraqi justice system. Unfortunately we all know that this scenario ain't gonna happen.

Edited on Thu May-06-04 03:00 PM by DarkPhenyx
...in a stressful and fucked up situation that she is an "abusive person". Do you have any other evidence or are you, like everyone else, jumping to conclusions?

It would be like assuming that because you shot someone innocent in the line of duty, when the situation wasn't at all clear and you knew the perp was out there somewhere, that you shhot innocent people all the time.

102. Being in a stressful and ...
Edited on Thu May-06-04 04:01 PM by RapidCreek
fucked up situation is generally when an abusive person is abusive. Most people...even abusive people don't beat their wives when everything is peachy keen now do they? The beat their wives when they believe their wives are causing them undue stress or discomfort, in one way or another. Generally one doesn't mug for a camera in a stressful fucked up situation....particularily while engaged in questionable behavior. A person who is not inclined to violence or abusive behavior doesn't beat his wife in any case.

The fact is cheif...that there isn't just one picture of this woman engaged in clearly specious behavior with a big grin on her face....there are at least 4 that I am aware of. In other words her behavior was not isolated but consistent. Neither is she doing what she is doing by accident. She didn't accidentally force a man to strip and accidentally put a dog collar on him and accidentally attach a leash to that collar. She didn't accidentally force 7 men to strip and accidentally force them to crawl atop one another. She didn't accidentally make a man masturbate on another's face. She did all of these things and posed for photos in their commission with forethought and intention. Your comparison of her actions to a police officer who accidentally shoots a civilian because a situation is unclear is inane at best.

If you'd like to use such a scenario more accurately let's consider the following. A police officer in a situation that wasn't at all clear poses for a picture, with a big grin on his face, while shooting an innocent citizen in the line of duty. He does this not once but four times. It follows then that said police officer shoots innocent people frequently...and he does so gleefully. Is this officer a victim of circumstance? Or is he a vicious killer doing what he does out of wanton and reckless disregard for human life? Can we assume, since he did it four times that it is an isolated incident or his normal modus operandi?

You tell me.

107. Actually abusive people are abusive pretty much all the time.
Now I'm assuming that you are talking about people who are habitually abusive, like wife beaters and serial child abusers.

Now...pay very close attention because you have obviously missed this the last 20 times I ahve said it. I am not defending her actions in Iraq. Never have, and I'm not about to start. Now, did you get that and was it clear? Good.

Now, please tell me why she isn't fit to be a mother? The two issues have absolutely nothing to do with eachother. That would be the topic in teis section of the thread. You did read all of it before you jumped in and started ranting didn't you? One would hope you did.

126. I see
thanks for clearing that up for me.

You say in one breath: Actually abusive people are abusive pretty much all the time.

In the next make the request: Now, please tell me why she isn't fit to be a mother.

My, how brilliant.

Actually I did read "all of it" before I jumped in and started ranting....which considering your demonstrably circuitous logic, was a waste of time.

127. You have no proof that she is an abusive person.
We know she committed these acts but we have no way of knowing it is aberrant behavior, which would make her not an abusive person, or if it is normal for her, which would make her an abusive person. I am assuming that it is aberrant behavior. Therefor she is not an abusive person. Therefor these acts have no bearing on her fitness to be a mother.

146. Not always.
Sometimes it is, then there are times in which it is "normal" for the person who is doing the abusing.

Aberrant behavior in this case beng defined as abnormal for the person in question.

24. Hey, I wouldn't want her to get pissed at me if I were her child
for some petty childhood infraction, or for nothing--to find out what her punishment would be.

I know we are in the "let's all just get passed this and move on" era, where no one is held accountable unless you are poor or a member of some despised minority, but there should be some consequences for actions.

It is like the white cops getting off everytime for beating Afro-Americans.

You are right, moral conduct does have a great deal to do with being a good parent. This is why the Right feel homosexuals make horrible parents. Remember that, by and large, morals are personal not universal.

really?! someone who enjoys making other people suffer, who laughs at pain and humiliation? maybe YOU'D like a mother like that but I'll pass and thank God for my own, who felt true compassion for the sufferers of the world and taught me the same.

95. I make no assumption.
As has been pointed out, in her defense I might add and not by me, her actions are dictated by the fucked up situation she was in at the time. Her reaction is also, according to some, abnormal for a woman becasue she was surrounded by men and in a macho environment. Therefor her actions are not normal for her.

You might also raise the issue you posted about above with some of the kinkier people in this forum. I'm sure they would love to explain just how misinformed and wrong you are about a great many things.

103. "actions dictated by the situation she was in"
bullshit!
she is enjoying every minute of it--and all she had to do was just say no--you know, like listen to her CONSCIENCE. so she might have been "reprimanded" or "disciplined"--but that is what is probably happening now anyway, isn't it? and personally I'd rather be put in jail or court-martialed or whatever the hell they do to people who refuse to follow ILLEGAL, IMMORAL, UNETHICAL SADISTIC ORDERS--with a clear conscience--than be free to run around doing more of the same with that on my soul.
keep apologizing for the beast, nobody's buying it.

hello? duh! good mothers instill a CONSCIENCE in their children
Edited on Thu May-06-04 08:22 PM by ima_sinnic
I'm sorry but there is NO EXCUSE for this beast's behavior. why do you persist with this CRAP that there is no connection between her sadistic pleasure at pain and suffering of her fellow human beings and her ability to mother? that it would not indicate a willingness to abuse her children also? or at least to fail to impart of sense of right and wrong, the Golden Rule? I predict her children thus grow into mini-beasts like herself, with no conscience and pleasure at others' pain. that makes her unfit IMHO.

Hey Mommy, what did you do in the war??
Oh, it was so much fun! Let me show you these pictures!! Gee, those were the good old days! Hey, ever think about being a prison guard when you grow up little Lynndie? It is so much fun to wear people down, to make them grovel at your feet and to make fun of their genitals while they have a bag over their head.

5. What did Rumsfeld say? "People do things they shouldn't do"
shrug, things happen, it's not nice, but not my problem... that was the impression he created.

In fact, he is ultimately responsible for the torture incidents (not "abuses" as he called them) and should resign immediately. He is responsible for an army where law and responsibility don't count much.

11. As I said before - I hope and pray these pictures haunt her for life
NO ONE, including a superior officer in the military, can force you to do the henious things that she has done. She did these on her own free will and I hope & pray that she pays the price for the rest of her life.

I hope that when she gets married that these pictures are distributed to all of the guests at her wedding.

I hope that when her children are old enough they receive these pictures as a reminder of the animal that is her mother.

And when this woman dies, I hope there are large blow-up pictures displayed behind her casket.

She, along with the others, should be dishonorably discharged for the humiliatingly way they have disgraced the honor of our American Soldiers - most who would know better than to do crap like this. That black mark should follow her throughout her career - every job she applies for she'll have to explain the reason why she was booted out of the army is because of her own stupidity.

Rarely am I this disgusted at another human being. Heck I don't even feel this kind of disgust for Bush and the other neo-con repukes. But this is the most horrible thing one human can do to another. I don't care what excuses Rush Limbaugh gives - typical hazing like in college, stress, bullets flying at you. None of these will have me buy-in to the horrorible crimes these people have committed.

12. And she's just an innocent paper pusher!
Yeah, right.

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/nationworld/nation/wir...

FORT ASHBY, W.Va. -- Family members of an Army reservist photographed with naked Iraqi prisoners said Tuesday she was merely a "paper-pusher" who was in the "wrong place at the wrong time."

Pictures of Spc. Lynndie England, 21, and other soldiers have sparked an international outcry over the U.S. military's handling of Iraqi war prisoners.

In one photo, England is shown making a thumbs-up gesture behind a pyramid of naked Iraqi men; in another, cigarette dangling from her lips, she points to a hooded and naked prisoner.

"It's ridiculous," said Destiny Goin, 21, who has lived with England's extended family since high school and considers herself England's sister.

"It's her picture that you see more than anyone else's, and she really wasn't involved. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time."

If I was her in that position I would have walked right out of there and find a Military Officer that would listen to what I have to say about the torture chambers in that prison. I know right from wrong - obviously this soldier and her next door neighbor "sister" haven't a clue

And she will be viewed as having done a great deal of damage to the esteem of her sex.

Not to mention what she has done to the prole soldiers over there who would never treat a human being like she has. She has even further endangered them.

She has become what she despises. Along with anyone who would tolerate or make light of this kind of treatment of another human being.

lots of our soldiers are taking photos and passing them around, highly illegal to do of course. and the talking heads last week said cbs obtained them from the porn site that had published them.

someone in the army apparently was either emailing them around, or whatever, and someone stateside who runs a porn site published them.

not a lot of people know, but there are also videos depicting rape of an iraqi woman by u.s. troops, this one is an actual porn film

there are actually pornsites that focus on rape, lots of guys AND gals are into that role playing shit. it's a mad gone world.

49. Not a peep out of Bragg
about her.

To look at the local news, you'd never know she was here. :shrug:

42. Did anyone else read yesterday's Plaid Adder
Re: the Stanford Prison experiment, etc.? I'm NOT defending this going on, it's horrible. I think those responsible need to be punished. But P.A. pointed to good evidence that shows that maybe 1/3 of 'normal people' will become, or start to become, brutal when put into a situation like this, given the power. It doesn't make it ok, but I have to say that I'm not really surprised. When people in the US and in the military are told over and over that Iraqis are terrorists, and it is implied that they are responsible for the 9/11 deaths, what do you think is going to happen when you lock a bunch of them up for a year with some US soldiers, many of whom have probably seen friends hurt and/or killed by these same groups of people? It's NOT ok, but I'm not surprised that it's happening. Or that they tried to cover it up. In the middle east, what could possibly be more inflammatory and shameful?

45. The problem emerges when war is romanticized
as heroic and noble service to one's country, when the nature of war is brutality in the most justifiable circumstances. And here we have an outrageous circumstance-there is no justification for this Invasion on any level and we have no leadership who loudly condemns it.

To a certain extent these kids are pawns, but then there is the soldier who blew the whistle and then there is Jessica Lynch, whose story they attempted to spin, but she put the brakes on.

Had she allowed the illusion to stand we could say she was only a victim as well. Always remember her when you see this little monster.

50. i was twenty once
and although i was never in the military, i know, in my head and heart, that i could never do this to another living or dead person.

i don't care how many studies about torture say the opposite.

they are pawns to an extent like you say. but they are the teeth of the war profiteers. the soldiers carry out the actual policies of these maniacs in charge. if they weren't actually obeying orders, no one would be killed or tortured at all.

she and her fellow pawns of satan are indeed monsters

101. The problem is more because of corruption at the top.
When the entire stated reasons for starting this war in the first place IS PROVEN TO BE BASED ENTIRLY ON LIES AND FABRICATIONS;

when the "man" at the top - bunkerboy himself - IS PROVEN TO LIE ALL THE TIME, ESPECIALLY ABOUT THIS WAR HE HIMSELF STARTED;

when all the persons in top positions of this entire misadminstration are corrupt, vile, evil = yes evil - persons;

when this entire criminal cabal got into power based on lies, cheating and worse;

then no one should be surprised that this type of stuff is being reported.

My only concerns are what about the 99% of the stuff WE NEVER WILL HEAR ABOUT?!

65. Phil Zimbardo, the original experimenter, wrote a reply:
Edited on Thu May-06-04 11:07 AM by japanduh
Over here: http://www.socialpsychology.org/forums/professional/ind...

"In the current situation, we must not allow the politicians and pentagon to dismiss the seriousness of what happened with the usual dispositional analysis of a few bad apples in a good barrel. Bush said it should not reflect on the good nature of all Americans or our military.
Wrong. The situational analysis says the barrel of war is filled with vinegar that will transform good cucumbers into sour pickles and will always do it to make the majority of good people, men and women, into perpetrators of evil, where there is:
anonymity-deindividuation, dehumanization, secrecy, diffusion of responsibility, social modeling, big power differentials, frustration, feelings of revenge,and obedience to authority.

...

WAR IS INDEED HELL, AND THIS PRE-EMPITIVE, NEEDLESS WAR IS HELL ON EARTH THAT WILL HAVE LONG-LASTING NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES AT HOME AND ABROAD. NE SLIM HOPE IS SOME IMPROVEMENT AFTER THE NOV. ELECTIONS IF THE CURRENT WAR MONGERING ADMINISTRATION IS DEFEATED. BUT THE CURRENT NATIONAL INERTIA IS AMAZING."


I'm not sure if it is the real Phil Zimbardo or not, but take it for what its worth.

There was also a famous experiment conducted by Stanley Milgram where he used average folks and got almost 65% of them to commit torture upon other people by pushing a button and shocking them for answering a question incorrectly. You can read a little more about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

Milgram conducted it to try and figure out how regular Germans could go so far as to treat Jews as sub-humans and eventually go about exterminating them, or not really care if they were exterminated or not. I mean could so many Germans be so totally "evil"? When you are in an environment where there is extreme social and peer pressure to fit in with the unit and to follow orders, you can rationalize away even the more terrible of acts (i.e. if its not them, it would of been me, these are freedom-hating animals who wouldn't hesitate to bomb the U.S., etc.. etc..).

No, what the soldiers in the pictures did is inexcusable, but ultimately in a system like the military where it is drilled into their heads that they need to work as a unit and follow the chain of command, add to that the extremely stressful and dangerous environment they are in, it is easy to lose one's sense of morality.


That is why, ultimately, the superiors - the top of the chain of command - should bear the most responsiblity for this.

100. I can't understand how everyone who defends this shit misses this!
If any of the lowlifes who defend this stuff were to be asked how they'd react if that was an American soldier naked on the floor, in obvious distress, leashed at the neck held by a female Iraqi soldier... would that be okay too? Because 'war is ugly', etc. Why is it that the media freely prints the idiots comments about how this is acceptable, why the question just begs to be asked? What if it were OUR people? What if Thomas Hammill, who wasn't even in the military was, instead of well-cared for, shown naked and sexually abused by the Iraqis? Would that be okay too? Would it be okay if it were these people's sons and daughters?? How about their grandmother naked giving donkey rides to Iraqi soldiers? How about their brother being raped with a broomstick by Iraqi soldiers? and photographed??? Are people so morally bereft and have so little humanity left that they can condone this simply because the people are different than we are??? Has the media done such a good job on people in the last 50 years that they have no interest in the people outside of the US? I can almost hear them.. "I am NOT a human, I am an American!".. said proudly.

Edited on Thu May-06-04 08:13 PM by DarkPhenyx
..."Fuck 'em, goddamn Iraqi's. Should have shot them to begin with..." you can guess his opinion on this. Then claims to be better than they are. I, of course, informed him that he wasn't better, and might not even be equal.
