Real tortures

While you are busy being outraged over prisoner-abuse in iraq, keep in mind the tens-of-thousands of Iraqis who haven't been tortured and murdered just because Coalition forces have liberated the country.

I remember one story from a year ago, about an Iraqi man who thanked the US forces for liberating his country. But it was too late for him, poor man. The body of his 12-year old daughter had been dumped on his doorstep. With a video-tape, the contents of which I won't describe to you. Just a little warning from the Ba'ath. A little message from Saddam.

That's what we are fighting against, in a thousand ever-shifting forms.

That's what ABC and Ted Koppel don't give a damn about.

That's what the Bush-haters and the America-haters don't give a damn about.

That's what the French and the Germans and the UN don't give a damn about.

That's what the "anti-war" activists don't give a damn about.

Evil cold-hearted phonies.
