US troops fear retribution for prison scandal

Mosul, Iraq - American soldiers patrolling the mean streets of Mosul are livid the barbaric abuses committed at the Abu Ghraib prison will expose them to vicious retribution.

Most Task Force Olympia soldiers, based at one of Saddam Hussein's glitzy former palaces in the northern city, are reluctant to talk about the abuses by their fellow soldiers.

When they do, words like "appalled" "disgusted" "shocked" and "disappointed" are on the tip of their tongue.

In my opinion Bush's treatment of Iraqis is the root cause of the bloodshed.
1. How would you feel if Chinese soldiers invaded America and then came and kicked in your home doors and chained and put bags over your husband, sons... and took them away. (a bag over their heads when it's 95F plus in the shade.)
2. The there have been many reports of soldiers abusing/beating Iraqi in the streets.
3. What if the word has been out since day one what Americans have been doing to Iraqi prisoners? I mean, the American GOP Media Whores haven't reported it but it's common knowledge to the people who actually are experiencing it.

So the Iraqis make the decision to fight to the death or face years of torture with no rights like Muslims in Guantanamo Bay and Afghanistan.

Let me honestly ask any of you what your decision would be?

More, I'd like to personally ask Bush, in a national press conference, this question.
