Just a few bad apples blowing off steam. Right?

The worst stuff I saw was from the detaining units who would torture people in their homes. They were using things like burns. They would smash people's feet with the back of an axe-head. They would break bones, ribs, you know. That was serious stuff.
I remember one guy who was forced to sit on an exhaust pipe on a humvee, and he had a pretty huge blister on his leg. Another guy, I don't know what they used to burn him, his legs. He was blindfolded so he didn't know either, but it looked like it might have been a lighter. He had some pretty big, [some] smaller blisters, but a lot of them.

A Leader Like This Doesn't Come Around Every Millenium

"For misleading the American people, and launching the most foolish war since Emperor Augustus in 9 B.C. sent his legions into Germany and lost them, Bush deserves to be impeached and, once he has been removed from office, put on trial along with the rest of the president's men. If convicted, they'll have plenty of time to mull over their sins."

After the hearing, Cunningham was led away to be fingerprinted and released until a sentencing hearing on February 27. He had already announced in July that he would not seek re-election next year. Cunningham’s guilty pleas came amid a series of Republican scandals, most notably the indictment of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, former chief of staff of Dick Cheney, the Vice-President, over his role in the CIA leak affair. Tom DeLay had to step down as House leader on being indicted for money-laundering, and Bill Frist, the Senate leader, is being investigated over a stock sale. All deny wrongdoing.

After September 11, 2001, we made a decision to play offense in fighting the war on terror, to track down enemies who would kill Americans and give them no place to hide. Our troops are doing a fantastic job, and terrorists know they have no hope of defeating our troops in the field. They know that the center of gravity in their fight is to undermine the will of the American people.

I would rather have American soldiers hunting down terrorists over there, than have American firefighters and police officers responding to attacks here at home."

About 100,000 Iraqi civilians - half of them women and children - have died in Iraq since the invasion, mostly as a result of airstrikes by coalition forces!,2763,1338749,00.html
"US General Tommy Franks is widely quoted as saying 'we don't do body counts'!"

Growing bored of the carnage … as crime of the century unfolds
It has also now been confirmed that the Americans have been using chemical weapons in Iraq. White phosphorus (WP) shells were used against insurgents in the siege of Fallujah last year in defiance of the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention. The shells were used for “shake and bake” operations, in conjunction with high explosives.
There’s no evidence that WP was used against civilians. But since some 50,000 Iraqis remained in Fallujah last November, it seems only a matter of time before we discover that it was. WP works by entering the body though soft exposed tissue and burns down to the bone.
The use of WP by the Saddam Hussein against the Kurds in 1991 was cited by the US Defence Department in 1995 as an example of the dictator’s own infamy, and was one of the justifications for regime change. The US have also used thermobaric or “fuel air” weapons and depleted uranium shells. Really, if they wanted to turn public opinion against them, the occupying forces could not have done better if they tried.

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
