I think this pales in comparison to the Iraqui regime, which has a policy of torturing their own people and letting babies starve. You want to equate this one military unit with the whole Iraqui unit and say that the US is just as bad?
No, I am indicating that the outrage in this post at child-torture in Iraq and subsequently attempting to justify the present war situation in Iraq, is hypocritical and that you would be well advised to stick to the ‘weapons of mass destruction’ argument if I were you.
It seems to me you actually have an anti american agenda and wish to make the US look worse than it actually is as usual.
I have no Anti-American agenda as my posts the last few days will evidence. I feel that the US are sadly lacking in a sensible Foreign Policy but that this is nothing new. I do however, have a clear anti-hypocrisy agenda. I would suggest that you take a careful read of the book written by Henry Kissinger, an American whom I greatly respect believe it or not, titled 'Diplomacy'. It places US Foreign Policy into a chronological comedy far more effectively than I ever could. I suggest that you fire an email to him and acuse him of possessing an anti-Americanism agenda, because he is far more critical of America than I have been in my posts.
So an article says that one special forces unit may be training these guys who kidnap and torture political dissidents. This action is condemned by the US government and the unit denies that they are training these particular people.
Well, it seems that you are half-way to denying that this occured? Perhaps a little more research would clear this matter up in your own mind Random - though what you find might not be terribly comfortable. Pre Ayatollah Iran makes particularly gruesome reading. You might also spread your area of research beyond Indonesia in 1998 to other areas of the world that have regularly been trained in rather ugly covert activities by the US military since the Kennedy Administration!
