New Iraqi Government Is Certainly Fond of Old Traditions

In his excellent article Paul McGeough provides a great description and analysis of how the new sovereign government of Iraq carries on with the time-honored custom of torture and brutality,- a custom to which Mr Hussein was an ardent adherent. He also describes what can only be characterized as an outrageous inaction of the American authorities who installed the current Iraqi government.

In all fairness, this is not what Americans are all about. As I have noted earlier, regular Americans in uniform were as outraged by atrocities committed by the new Iraqi regime as any normal human being would be. However, their attempts to put a stop to the atrocities came to naught on the orders of their superiors.

So, are we just back to the good old "good thug, bad thug" game?
