Friendly Iraqi soldiers: Want more evidence that the United States is the only country that even tries to follow the Geneva Convention? Former New York Times reporter Rick Bragg writes in Pvt. Jessica Lynch's book "I Am a Soldier, too" what medical records reveal Lynch went through after the Humvee she was riding in crashed following an Iraqi attack:
"Jessi lost three hours," Bragg wrote. "She lost them in the snapping bones, in the crash of the Humvee, in the torment her enemies inflicted on her after she was pulled from it."
The scars on Lynch's battered body and the medical records indicate she was anally raped, and "fill in the blanks of what Jessi lived through on the morning of March 23, 2003," Bragg wrote.
"The records do not tell whether her captors assaulted her almost lifeless, broken body after she was lifted from the wreckage, or if they assaulted her and then broke her bones into splinters until she was almost dead."
And the Islamic society that accepts and condones this sort of behavior is just as valid as Western civilization which considers this a war crime?
