Re: US Soldiers in St. Louis Admit to Rape and Murder in Iraq

As an acvite-duty member of 27+ years, I'm both proud and ashamed of the behavior of some of us -- though there is definitively more to proud of. There's good and bad in everything and that's what we have w/ the present 'war on scarerism.'

Having lived for several years in Jordan and Beirut (both gorgeous countries and gorgeouosly-friendly peoples), I believe Umar 100 percent. I've heard the most moronic statements coming out of Americans, both military and civilians vis-a-vis Arabs, Muslims, etc. Now that ignorance is the most incredible, but Americans have been brainwashed to think badly of Arabs, especially Palestinians (2/3rd of Jordan is populated with Palestinians). Also spent much time in TA (Tel Aviv) -- the truth NEVER makes it out of there or from anywhere in Israel([search]) or Palestine([search]), so the 180-degree rule is in order: if the western news says it's light, then it's more than likely dark -- just go w/ the opposite.

Shukran sidi.
