When is this crap ever going to end. They need to be forced to do the same thing and see how they like it. Sickos! Noted with disgust. Thanks Mark.

war exists solely to act as a breedding ground for these attitudes and behaviors. commerce and imperialism are only secondary concerns. there are cultural values centered around sadomasichistic behavior which have been insulated by wealth for thousands of years and incubated in the abstractions of patriotism/nationalism. Teaching a soldier to dehumanize their "enemy" is a process which confirms the leaders grasp over techniques of hypnosis & mind control. this is not a mystical claim but rather an understanding of how to draw the beast out of us. The very same monkey beast which we have tried to evolve away from.

bottom line: get on alternative fuel or stop complaining

WARNING: SARCASM AHEAD

Maybe we could get up a petition to request ICC jurisdiction over the British troops and provide them with culturally appropriate recreational opportunities.

Oh wait -- in some British schools that sort of thing really has been considered a culturally appropriate recreational opportunity and is a time-honoured tradition. So Joycey, it is possible that at least some of those British troops would like it because they learned it in school when it was forced upon them.

Besides, as a U.S. ally, the British troops may have undergone U.S. training in the types of sexual abuse and torture that the United States considers to be legal, since similar things have occurred at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.

Remind me again, what are the U.S. and the British doing in Iraq anyway? Oh yeah, war crimes. Crimes against humanity. So what's a little child abuse and sexual torture in furtherance of carrying out greater crimes?

Evidently, all kinds of troops get their jollies from watching prisoners perform sexual acts (remember the naked pyramid of prisoners that the American soldiers were taking pictures of?). Guess the women and children are not off limits either. These men should be held accountable for their perverse act on a 14 year old....sadly noted, Mark.

British or Britian = U.S. and even though I have a military family, I am very sad to say..., not all soldiers are GOOD soldiers. I don't even know how some of these people end up being accepted into the service, let alone make it through basic training. Just like the cops, I know good cops, and there are some very bad cops, who give the cops in the Detroit area, a bad rap.

This is another disgusting act that I have read of this insane war that this freaking alliance is engaged in....okay breath dar....I hope the other GOOD British soldiers do the same that I know personally many American soldiers would do, if their fellow soldiers engaged in this sick crap.
There is so much darkness going on over there....Lord have mercy...imagine what we don't know.....I digress..
Noted and thank you, Mark

I fully agree with Uhoud. These soldiers are supposed to be stopping crimes against humanity, not adding to them. If they were civilians they would be charged. Just because they have a military uniform should not give them the right to abuse too. Sick sick sick!!!!

After the WW2, we created UN so as to prevent crimes against humanity, as was evident on large scale before that. Looks like authorities are failing crimes against humanity badly, doesn't it? :( Noted.

ALLEGATIONS ~~~ These are just that ~ according to shocking new allegations ~ 'Allegations' that are yet to be proved!..... Isn't it amazing how it took 'years' to suddenly dream this story up! Stop knocking the troops over there,soldiers that are getting killed almost daily! ...... British soldiers are better trained,and show discipline,not illegal vulgarity.
If it is proved 100%,by DNA or film of it happening,so its 100% positive that this happened,they will be severely dealt with! Do not 'Tar all of the British Soldiers with the same brush!'.
The British forces,and the USA,Spanish,and other countries troops were asked to help to 'Police the country',untill Iraq can govern itself by getting their own Army trained by 'experienced soldiers' of many National Forces! We are their to help,not to abuse.
