Meanwhile, in Iraq...

A disturbing report says that four American troops took turns raping a 14-year-old Iraqi girl, killing her entire family, and setting the girl's body on fire.

Honestly, this is to be expected, when immature kids sign up for military service, only to be brainwashed by Fox News, and subjected to the life-or-death stresses of a war that serves only to enrich the oilmen.

It's easy to blame it on the actual perpetrators. But the system has failed them too. The United States of America glorifies military service and hard labor for the average person, while treating him/her like dirt behind the scenes. This is what rampant capitalism gets you - looks a whole lot like rampant communism in the USSR, doesn't it?
