Situations like Abu Graib should be expected in war

I'm a U.S. Army vet and when I saw the first pictures of Abu Graib I wasn't at all upset. I never got upset. And with good reason. If America was fighting a real war the "victims" of Abu Graib would all be dead. Arm chair moralists and couch potato critics think war is a game with a nice set of rules that soldiers should strive to adhere to. HOGWASH!

Real fighters kill everything in their sight including babies and women. Iraq and Afghanistan are a waste of time and energy because Iran is the #1 cause of all the terrorist acts on earth. But it wouldn't be politically correct to attack Iran which is the solution to ending terrorism. On top of all this bleeding heart liberal insanity, our perverted news media stirred up Abu Graib simply because they need big ratings to stay on top. They don't care about anything but the bottom line.

As we speak there are media correspondents cooking up tomorrow's scandals. You can be sure that Israel has already been blamed for something that hasn't even occured yet. My point is that if you're looking for fairness in war and in life, create a video game or write a screenplay because this world is an evil, violent and decieved place. Only in a rotten world like ours could something as vile as Islam recieve good press.
