Pictures of Iraq torture --- a turning point?

Here's an example of how the US torture of Iraqis is swelling the ranks of the anti-American resistance fighters: http://www.commondreams.org/headlines

The pictures of Iraqi humiliation at the hands of the Americans will also provide Al Qaeda with the perfect recruitment posters. These pictures make concrete the central message of Al Qaeda --- that the US is out to humiliate the Arab world - by stationing US military forces in their holy lands, by violating their sovereignty and invading their countries at will, and now forcing their men to strip naked and simulate homosexual acts in front of mocking American female guards.

This is the USA's image half way around the world.

The "images" are front page on both al_Jazeerah and BBC, and I suspect many more news sources

All the bribes, threats, and bombs the US can muster won't make this go away.

The US has "fallen" whether they realize it or not.

AND ALMOST HALF THE US WANTS TO RE-ELECT BUSH???

Gawd help us all.

(sigh)

1. Along with
stupid asshole Bush going on Arab TV and embarrassing us in front of the whole world.

Stumping for Osama.

I heard this morning there may be 100's of pictures coming out soon.

We need to get the fuck out of Iraq and soon.

Cheers
