British troops shamed
By Chris Bunting
01 May 2004


The Ministry of Defence was last night forced to announce an investigation after photographs showing British soldiers beating and urinating on an Iraqi prisoner were published.

The pictures, coming the day after US troops were revealed to have maltreated Iraqi detainees, show British soldiers beating the man with their rifle butts. He was reportedly arrested for theft.

Their victim is said to have been left bleeding and vomiting, with a broken jaw and smashed teeth, after an eight-hour ordeal. During it, he was apparently threatened with summary execution.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, serving soldiers told the Daily Mirror that the unnamed captive, against whom no charges were brought, was dumped from the back of a moving vehicle at the end of his torture. It is not known whether he survived.

The soldiers said they were making the photos public to show why the US-UK coalition was encountering such fierce resistance in Iraq.

The daily mirror is a really trashy paper and the photos have been proved fake. :smile:

Nothing has been proved.

The soliders who have the suitcase full of hundreds photographs of Iraqis before tortured and degraded by Occupation forces claim they are not fake or doctored.

Seems as though the PR department is working over time on this one. I tend to believe the soliders themselves, not some spokesperson in an office hundreds of miles away or the professional officers who do not want to rock the boat and tarnish their careers.

The British like all members of the free democratic world have a moral obligation to help liberate the world from communism and Islamic theocracies by any means necessary. They never have any thing to be ashamed of as long as they fight for democracy.

So you feel that it is fine for the free democratic world to forcibly impose their moral beliefs upon others.  You are saying that it is fine for the free democratic world to kill, maim, rape, and torture others as long as they do so in the name of freedom and democracy?  Let me guess, you your shit is made of gold and doesn't stink?  :rolleyes:
