This Entry Also Written on My Left Buttock

Yes, the world is outraged by the torturing of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Stripping prisoners naked, making them perform sex acts upon each other, writing slurs on their bodies with magic marker. All very bad.


But worst of all, when US soldiers wrote slurs on them, they didn't even spell the slurs correctly.


You see? The prisoner had been branded a "rapeist." Either that or a "rap-fist," which as far as I know also isn't a word.

This to me is the icing on the cake, or perhaps the extra shrapnel in the cluster bomb. I can't think of a better way to demonstrate to all the world that we're more than cruel and barbaric -- we're also idiots. We will strip you naked and write things on your body, and then spell it wrong.

Maybe you don't think this is that funny. And honesty, it's not. But see the end of the entry below.

There's always bad people everywhere. There's bad Americans and bad Iraqis. We tend to forget about the good Iraqis and good Americans. Cheap polititians use unfortunate incidents or issues to get what they want and stupid people believe in them 100%.
