Iraqi Prisoner Abuse
Many seem to think that this might trigger years of future violence by an enraged arab populace. I am skeptical. While the abuse of prisoners is undoubtably a disgusting thing, it is also the traditional mode of police behavior in that part of the world. As such, while I wish our troops would not engage in such conduct, I would be quite surprised if the "arab street" is in fact shocked/further enraged by this turn of events.
