100. The only soldiers
I have contempt for are the ones who torture prisoners and slaughter innocent civillians. Unfortunately it is far more widespread in Iraq than is documented. We know about Abu Graib and recently the Haditha massacre but what about all the atrocities that have been covered up by the military. Do you honestly think we know the half of it? Do the miltary try to cover up their crimes? Of course they do.

The lying bastards in the miltary tried to cover up the truth over Pat Tillman and more recently Haditha. Of course, it is those higher up who are ultimately reponsible but that is not to say the those at the bottom are totally innocent.

Read this article in which Iraq veterans describe the indiscriminate killing that has taken place.
