The forgotten Abu Ghraib massacres, Washington's unpunished crimes....
All war crimes stipulated by the Geneva Conventions and the rest of the
international conventions and treaties were committed by the US army in
Iraq. In fact, the crimes committed by the US army during the
occupation of Iraq were worse than those stipulated by international
agreements. There are dozens of international reports documenting these
crimes in detail. Torturing prisoners is nothing new; our governments
have been doing it since time immemorial.
The Bush Crime
Family, in their flawless execution of yet another unspeakable travesty
of human decency – the unwarranted and unprovoked invasion of a
sovereign nation – has literally gotten away with the murder of 1.5
million Iraqi civilians, not to mention the 3,000 Americans who died on
9-11-2001. Thousands of young men and women who serve in our military
were being brainwashed into thinking they were over there to somehow defend the United States from it’s enemies.
So what did actually happen there?
1-Homosexual rape, male homosexuality is deeply shameful in Arab
culture; naked Arab prisoners were forced to simulate and undergo gay
sex, and pictures were taken to be used as blackmail,threatening these
men that they would show their friends and family. 2-Thousands of prisoners were treated like animals.
3- In Abu Ghraib, not only where there no mechanisms in place to
prevent abuse of human beings, but also the "contractors" – the private
mercenaries that the US government pays to run these prisons – are not
subject to the Geneva Conventions, and have direct supervisory status
over our military personnel.
