A horse is a horse of course of course...

there will not be a trial anytime soon for Saddam Hussein. The guy wasn't very nice, but even he deserves the right to a fair and speedy trial. After all, we're demolishing his country and liberating his people, enabling them to live a life filled with freedom and democracy.

Okay, there was just a little bit of sarcasm in that paragraph.

I'm tired of the war. Not because I'm sick of hearing about it, but because I'm sick of all this bad shit such as peeing on the Koran, beating prisoners, the "lawful"raping of women and holding others (I refuse to call them prisoners because in my world belief, you have to actually be accused and tried for a crime before you can-or should-be considered a prisoner) for an undetermined amount of time going by "unnoticed" by the popular media. Even when the stories did break, nothing was been done about any of it.

By not calling the perps on their wrongdoings, we send the message that, Hey, it's still okay to do all this bad stuff, just make sure the pictures don't get published or the story leaked.

It's the mistreatment of the significant issues that get me riled up. And both Dem's/Repub's are guilty of sweeping the sand under the carpet so-to-speak.
