Yesterday I read Susan Sontag‘s essay in the NYT Magazine and last night Jeremy and I watched Full Metal Jacket. Both make me realize that US military’s abuse/torture of its prisoners is almost inevitable after what soldiers go through in boot camp. If their superiors can treat them so poorly with verbal and sometimes physical abuse why would soldiers not feel it is appropriate to do the same to others who they feel are “below them”? Rumsfeld and Bush should be impeached and charged with war crimes.
