Where do we sign up for this?

So let me see if I have this straight. US soldiers are supposed to have telepathy, precognition, and the ability to foretell the future so that idiot Italian reporters can drive just like back home - in a war zone - and not get shot. (Memo to Sgrena: if they wanted you dead, you would be.) However ... be the Dear Leader of a country that shows up completely black on night satellite pictures, where they imprison a woman so hungry she stole a beet, gas whole families, together, so the parents can watch their children die as they die themselves -- and we can't criticise because that would be "unhelpful". That is an impressive, Olympic-level double standard ya got there. What do we have to do to get some of that?I'm not saying we can't hold our troops to a high standard. We do. But why can't you apply the same high standard to other people?
