Shocking abuse ...

Three British soldiers have been convicted and jailed for Iraqi prisoner abuse. I continue to think that the action to remove Saddam Hussein from power was completely justified, but it is salutary to be reminded that evil (or simple idiocy) is not restricted to any one nation's armed forces. I am not so naive as to believe that this is the first or the last time that British military personnel have participated or will participate actively in extremely questionable practices whilst performing their duties.
