War cimes in Iraq

Original post made by Jill Thompson, Midtown, on Mar 18, 2008

In the must-watch video below, Iraq war veteran and ANSWER organizer Michael Prysner retells his horrifying responsibilities as an occupation soldier, and denounces the Army officers who used racism and bigotry in order to justify the oppression of the Iraqi people. Prysner's eloquent and compelling testimony cuts through the Pentagon's propaganda and exposes the truth of the Iraq occupation --Prysner joined the U.S. Army at age 17 and in March 2003, he was deployed to northern Iraq. He remained there for 12 months. Bearing witness to the many crimes of the occupation, Prysner became a staunch opponent of the war, and in 2005 he began organizing and speaking out against it. The four-day Winter Soldier event was organized by Iraq War Veterans Against the War.

All out for March 19!

In San Francisco, ANSWER has initiated a mass demonstration on the evening of March 19 (the actual day that the invasion began) following militant direct actions that will take place throughout the earlier part of the in the Bay Area. A wide number of groups are planning and mobilizing for those actions. In Florida, ANSWER is organizing and mobilizing for demonstrations throughout the state during the same days. In New York City, Chicago, Seattle, and other cities, ANSWER organizers are working to bring people into the streets. Go to the ANSWER homepage for a full listing of events.

PLEASE HELP TO STOP THIS INSANE AND IMMORAL WAR - OUR SOLDIERS ARE FORCED TO COMMIT WAR CRIMES AGAINST THE IRAQIS. THIS WAR WAS LAUNCHED ON A MOUNTAIN OF LIES AND DECEIT!

99% of these allegations turn out to false and made by people who were never in the US Military.

This was the case with the winter soldier traitors on Vietnam

It is also the case with the winter soldier traitors on Iraq


The USA has the finest most ethical military in the history of civilization. They deserve our gratitude and praise.

I couldn't link to the hatriot site, but I will just assume that this is Rev. Wright version of American history.

Is this the puppy tossing? Hell, when I was that age I chased army trucks. and, yes, I heard soldiers making raunchy comments to foreigners who didn't understand them, kinda like when an old man walks past a "Hip" crown and they describe him in jive talk or whatever. Crap like this trivializes genuine war crimes by equating them with frat party gags.
As for the legality of the war, it was legal enough for the Clintons.
