We have soldiers whose attitudes are the same as terrorists', except directed against Iraqis instead of Americans. The soldiers tell stories of how prisoners are routinely beaten because one person claimed they planted a bomb. Dead civilians are framed as terrorists to justify shootings. To people who still support this war, do you still think we're decreasing the number of Islamic terrorists and sympathizers?
