Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: British Soldiers' <i>'Baha Mousa'</i> Slaying Shame ...

British Soldiers' 'Baha Mousa' Slaying Shame ...

Well, we've been beaten to it today by one of our old Brit brother bloggers, R.J. Adams at 'sparrow chat'.

Beaten to what?

Beaten to this bit of bloody barbarity.

God Bless The ‘Special Relationship’

Few in America will have heard the name, Baha Mousa. That’s a pity, because Baha Mousa was living proof the ’special relationship’ between Britain and the United States is as strong and endurable as ever.

Baha Mousa is no longer ‘living proof’. He’s been dead five years: tortured to death by British troops in Basra, following arrest and detention along with a number of others Iraqis, in September 2003.

Mousa was a hotel receptionist whose only crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Read the rest right here.

Since it seems 'sparrow chat''s already said it all for us - and so succinctly too - we're simply going to put a face to a name:the name of Baha Mousa, deceased.



Shocked?


You should be. Since that's what it looks like when an innocent man's been brutally beaten to death ... by a bunch of (brave?) young British soldiers.

Nice one, boys.

Eh?

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Thanks for the link, Richard, and for posting a picture of what was done to this unfortunate man.

Only one answer to this kind of brutal murder - firing squad. Same for US troops. Same for any soldier.

This man was acivilian and they knew it. They did HAVE to do what they - they did it because they were power mad thugs wearing uniforms. They bring shame to the uniform and to our country and countrymen.

Correction - I should have said they did NOT have to do it.

Apologies.
