GUEST,rarelamb BS: Govt sponsored torture in Iraq (39) RE: BS: Govt sponsored torture in Iraq 16 Nov 05

" Do you not realise that the regime we are putting in place will be in no way democratic"

How do you mean? Do people vote for their representatives or don't they?

"WE have created an Iraq ruled by militias and Islamic fundamentalists who are practicing the very abuses that we are about to execute Saddam for.
The politicians who have been elected are mouthpieces in the struggle for POWER! not democracy."

And this is somehow different than the US in what way? American service personnel were found guilty of mishandling prisoners and were tried. If you think that the leeches on capitol hill are not in the 'struggle for power' then you need to review the reasons why our founding fathers created checks and balances by having three branches of the government.

" Of course we shouldn't have gone to Iraq.

The reasons have all been used up....There are no reasons left!!"

Once again I will repeat:

On a broader scale, I have yet to see from any poster on this site how the isolated instances of abuse has undermined the strategic objectives. Nor have I seen anyone post how they would have dealt with the problems that faced this administration after 911.
