OctovonSo are you trying to say this one man represents the ideals of Americans? Whereas a few reservists and Military Police who commit crimes against POWs are not? Since when can one man represent the ideal American citizen, when a few 'bad apples' do not represent American ideals?

As for this entire story of running through trenches killing every 'enemy', even using the weapon of a fallen enemy to dispatch the 'enemy'. Wasn't a story like this concocted to make Pvt. Lynch a 'hero' as well?

So Octovon are you trying to say we should believe, or should not believe, that ALL Canadian military are rapist and murderers because of a ‘few bad apples’ raping their own, and covering up evidence by murder?

People are always more intrested in hearing bad news, they do like to hear good news but bad news gives them more to talk about and therefor is more popular ans since commercial(news)channels want to get as many viewers as possible they will show us lots of "bad" (well it is) stuff. Blame sociaty.

Not at all, but thats how the media will represent it. At one moment, the media will show Rumsfield saying that the people who abused POWs at Abu Ghraib did not represent the American spirit or ideals. Then they will cut to a segment of some 'hero' who killed as many enemies as he could to save the lives of his comrades, with a sub-title of what a true American soldier is, or that he represented what his or her country idealises in its military personnel. Whatever the side, its overblown and corrupt by the media.

As for Canadian military abuse, it was horrible, Somalia for example, absolutely despicable.

These 'criminals' that did such horrible acts in Abu Ghraib are SCUM. When people do such things they are scum. They do not represent the US military. They are scum. Do no try to herofy these people, they are not heros, they are criminals. What they did was horrid, and inhumane, to the highest levels. Again, I'm not sure you know of all of the things they did. A lot of info is still coming out. They should be court martialed, and sent to levenworth(military prison) for many, many years.

Octavon, the purpose of this thread was to tell others that there are others things besides the things happening in Iraq, not to critisize Americans.

I do not agree Sailerboy!:D In our country they showed how our Soldiers got along very well with most of the iraqis. And how they were building up the town... It`s not all bad news.but said to say there is more bad news then good news.
