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

We all know there has been a whole range of participants in the U.S. government's invasion, occupation and continuing war against the civilian insurgency in Iraq. The invasion was the initiation of a blatant act of international agression which makes it a war crime to begin with. Most of the participants have been indoctrinated to hate and fear the entire population of Iraq, with racist and anti-Islamic beliefs encouraged. The U.S. military has repeatedly humiliated, tortured, maimed and mass-murdered civilians, when not just bombing homes indiscriminately (i.e. without checking on whether or not any civilians are present beforehand). Depleted nuclear weaponry, chemical weaponry (napalm, phosphorus,...) and other outlawed forms of weaponry have been repeatedly used against not only military targets (when there were any during the illegal invasion) but also against civilian areas.

So should there be any surprise when a few army misfits can't figure out that they should be keeping their mouths shut about their crimes when they're back in their own country? If the military brass knew they were shooting their mouths off they'd tell 'em to shut up, but they wouldn't take it very seriously, anyway, since no mainstream media would publish the truth about this kind of stuff unless it was caught on film--and probably not even then.

Last year a medal was pinned on another war criminal here in Columbia, Missouri by Republican U.S. Representative Kenny Hulshoff the day after the war criminal admitted to the local newspaper that he intentionally murdered an Iraqi four-year-old (don't ask me how he knew the age, I'm assuming he was guessing) because, he said, the little child picked up a gun from the floor and he didn't want to take a chance on getting shot himself! What a cowardly act! But did he worry about telling the truth about this war crime? Not at all, because he knew the mainstream media will just let it pass by and excuse it if necessary, just like the Nazi press excused similar despicable acts by the SS in the 1930s and 1940s.

And then there are always the millions of supporters for invasions, torture, maiming and massacring of civilians, etc. in the U.S. who help it all keep happening again and again and again in country after country that the U.S. has invaded over the last hundred years and more.
