Has anyone seen this? Pictures on a US troop's website of dead Iraqis with disgusting comments printed underneath? Wow, this makes me :puke:

I hate this war. At this stage of the game the troops know they are fighting for a lie. They just seem to like killing. The only troops I am going to support are the ones refusing to go to Iraq and kill to make rich white men richer.

1. Here is what these troops are violating
Article 13

Prisoners of war must at all times be humanely treated. Any unlawful act or omission by the Detaining Power causing death or seriously endangering the health of a prisoner of war in its custody is prohibited, and will be regarded as a serious breach of the present Convention. In particular, no prisoner of war may be subjected to physical mutilation or to medical or scientific experiments of any kind which are not justified by the medical, dental or hospital treatment of the prisoner concerned and carried out in his interest.

Likewise, prisoners of war must at all times be protected, particularly against acts of violence or intimidation and against insults and public curiosity.

Measures of reprisal against prisoners of war are prohibited.
________________

read the part about public curiosity.

Now not all troops are like this, but this is yet another sign that good order and discipline is gone.

Oh and I did send teh whole sordid mess to Seymor Hersh...

I have no voice, but boy he does have one
