US Troops’ street justice in Iraq

On 25 April 2003, the newspaper Dagbladet (Norway) published photos of armed US soldiers forcing Iraqi men to walk naked through a park. On the chests of the men had been scrawled an Arabic phrase that translates as “Ali Baba – Thief.”

I kinda wish we’d do this here in our country! 🙂

Seriously though, in a part of the world where due process is almost non-existent, and martial-law is the only governance, this treatment seems pretty reasonable. I hope it doesn’t last much longer however…
