Cooked Iraqi
Above is one of the photos US soldiers traded for pornography. They called it Cooked Iraqi. They are displaying an Iraqi they killed and fried as if the corpse were a trophy fish.
Weapons are the tools of violence;
all decent men detest them.

Weapons are the tools of fear;
a decent man will avoid them
except in the direst necessity
and, if compelled, will use them
only with the utmost restraint.
Peace is his highest value.
If the peace has been shattered,
how can he be content?
His enemies are not demons,
but human beings like himself.
He doesn’t wish them personal harm.
Nor does he rejoice in victory.
How could he rejoice in victory
and delight in the slaughter of men?

He enters a battle gravely,
with sorrow and with great compassion,
as if he were attending a funeral.

~ Lao Tsu  Tao Te Ching, Chapter 31
snarling soldier This image captures the arrogance and cruelty of the soldier as he is in the battle field, not the rosy cheeked still innocent-looking recruit. A licence to kill brings out the worst in people. Absolute power of life and death over people of another race and religion leading inevitably to absolute moral corruption. The opportunities for unlimited tormenting and bullying are the key reason people such as the fellow in the photograph put up with so much crap from the military.

Universal Soldier

© Caleb Music-ASCAP written and performed by Buffy Sainte-Marie.
I wrote Universal Soldier in the basement of The Purple Onion coffee house in Toronto in the early sixties. It’s about individual responsibility for war and how the old feudal thinking kills us all.
~ Buffy Sainte-Marie (1941-02-20 age:77)
Donovan (1946-05-10 age:71) had a hit with it in 1965.

He’s five feet two and he’s six feet four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He’s all of 31 and he’s only 17
He’s been a soldier for a thousand years

He’s a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain,
a Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew
and he knows he shouldn’t kill
and he knows he always will
kill you for me my friend and me for you

And he’s fighting for Canada,
he’s fighting for France,
he’s fighting for the USA,
and he’s fighting for the Russians
and he’s fighting for Japan,
and he thinks we’ll put an end to war this way

And he’s fighting for Democracy
and fighting for the Reds
He says it’s for the peace of all
He’s the one who must decide
who’s to live and who’s to die
and he never sees the writing on the walls

But without him how would Hitler have
condemned him at Dachau
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He’s the one who gives his body
as a weapon to a war
and without him all this killing can’t go on

He’s the universal soldier and he
really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from him and you and me
and brothers can’t you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.

from Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems 19561968

Don’t be fooled by Hollywood stereotypes. The most sadistic bloodthirsty killers can look no different from the Brad Pitt clone, clean cut boy next door. If the clean cut boy next door enlisted and went to Iraq, almost certainly he is a sadistic bloodthirsty killer. If he wasn’t before left, he was by the time he returned.
The American soldier knows full well there were no WMDs (Weapon of Mass Destructions). He knows the UN (United Nations) has declared the war illegal. He knows Iraq was no threat to the USA. He knows the USA attacked Iraq, a tiny unarmed country, without provocation. He knows full well Americans are killing more children than adults. He knows about the atrocities and torture. He knows he is not defending America; he is fighting a war of aggression on her behalf. He knows the war in not about Saddam, or else why would the killing continue long after Saddam’s capture and Bush would have accepted Saddam’s surrender before the war started. He should be pretty damn suspicious this war is about oil, since that what nearly everyone on earth but Republicans say it is about. Yet he persists in his slaughter, no different from the Nazi who persisted in his evil out of a herd mentality.

What motivates him? I think these are the big four motivations:

  1. Sadism and excitement.
  2. Fear of standing out from the crowd. Herd mentality.
  3. Blind patriotism.
  4. Money. The military is the employer of last resort. What sort of a sicko would choose killing and maiming kids as a way to earn a living?

Fruitcakes from assert war, even for no reason, is a Good Thing™.

The biggest culprits are those who are so absorbed in trivial concerns they can’t be bothered to stay informed.
Some of the culprits have already been punished by natural justice. They lost a limb or an eye in the process of harming the Iraqis. These are pictures after the surgeons have performed their modern miracles. It is hard to believe these men are killers. They look like such pleasant young men.
