Mike Prysner describes a mission he took part in which his unit forced Iraqis out of half a dozen homes, with no compensation, so the US military could use them. "One family in particular, a woman with two small girls, very elderly man, and two middle-aged men--we dragged them from their houses and threw them onto the street, and arrested the men because they refused to leave." Since he left, he has been plagued by guilt, "anytime I see a mother with her children, like the one who cried hysterically and screamed that we were worse than Saddam as we forced her from her home--anytime I see a young girl like the one I grabbed by the arm and dragged into the street." Prysner also describes the physical abuse of a wounded prisoner, with a sandbag over his head and his hands tied behind his back. "We were told we were fighting terrorists; the real terrorist was me, and the real terrorism is this occupation."

BS indeed! Everyone knows we're in it for the oi-I mean for the sake of the freedom of the Iraqis! How dare this Islamocommufascist invent these obviously false stories about our heroic soldiers roughing up the ungrateful heathens? As if they don't deserve it in the first place for refusing to provide everything their brave and selfless saviors ask for!

my dad was a professional soldier, a marine who chose to remain in the military after WWII and Korea.. his biggest fear was a professional military.. he always said "give me the two year draftee who doesn't like being a soldier and can't wait to get out, they keep us lifers honest"
My dad died in 1958, clearly a man ahead of his time.
