The photos showed U.S. troops smiling, posing, laughing or giving the thumbs-up sign as naked, male Iraqi prisoners were stacked in a pyramid or positioned to simulate sex acts with one another.
What's that got to do with Tillman?

Yeah It was all over the news.

IMO war is war and that means doing what ever it takes. This on the other hand has nothing to do with war. This only show to the rest of the world that we are stooping to a pretty low level. Granted it's a small number of officers that do things like this. But hey we judge a whole population on the actions of individuals.

Oh by the way, I pretty much don't care about politics. Nor do I care about religion, or race, or...well pretty much anything...

Funny you should mention that. A friend was recapping some comments made by and elderly man he works with. He pretty much said the same thing. Just like the old world wars, just drop the big on on them... he said.

Actually I do believe we should pull all the troops.

Read Bravo Two Zero, a great book about British SAS officers caught in Iraq (the first war) and the treatment that they received. If posing in pyramids and faux sexual positions was the worst treatment that the prisoners received, that is far better than how our troops have been treated as prisoners.
