    yeah, a slap in the hand. Look at Abu-Ghraib. And how do we know these soldiers were not told that its ok to break the law?

    How do you know they were?

    I'm not saying that this is OK if it's true, but frankly I'm starting to have the opinion that Americans can do 1,000 good things right, and 1 horrible thing, the rest of the world will decide that everything we do is horrible, and we're horrible and the world would be better without us.

    Frankly, since our image seems to be "un-rehabilitatable" in the worlds eyes, why try?
