Ritzy, a supporter of the US presence in Iraq until yesterday, is mad as all hell at the US coalition and wants them out of Iraq now, after stumbeling on this website. Her reaction: The pictures I’ve seen today will perhaps also serve a purpose. It is a testimony that quite a few people on duty in Iraq are not fit for service. They should not be near any mission objective of peace and nation building. They are taking pride and joy in death and demolition when they ought to just endure it. They’re laughing at scattered brains and split faces, cooked bodies and broken limbs. They ought to feel sorry things did not end in any other way. They should want to know who that person was, his name and why he had to die. It is called humanity. A military without it is corrupted and will fail; failure means no chance to succeed. I agree with her that those people on duty who are taking those pics shouldn't be there, and i don't mean they shouldn't be there because they took pictures (altough honestly, digital cameras in Iraq= doing more harm then good so far), they shouldn't be there because they seem to enjoy the killing and the destruction. You can't be a peacekeeper that enjoys killing people. That being said, I think it's wrong to judge the whole Militray presence there- more then 100,000 of them- based on the actions of a few assholes with digital cameras. However, the presence of those assholes there is a nightmare, and should not be tolerated. I don't know if the military does psychological evaluations for its troops, but in a situation as deadly and bloody as Iraq's, it might be a good idea. It may save the next guy serving there from ending up like this guy.
