How To Not Win The Hearts And Minds

At least it isn't US troops this time

Details emerged last night of a shocking video which appears to show a group of British soldiers brutally beating and kicking defenceless Iraqi teenagers in an army compound.

The footage is said to show eight soldiers pulling four teenagers off the street following a riot and dragging them into their army base, before beating them with batons, as well as punching and kicking them.


The saddest part, this is no longer surprising.

There's very little surprising in politics or Iraq these days. I think we've become so overwhelmed and so jaded that we're numb to most transgressions.
