plese click this site and remember what abd did in ıraq
the peacefull american people..i think we can not describe them as people...animals dont do it eachother but americans do and document their photos to show their groundchilds what a wild mans they were...
there are lots of web sites and hundreds of photo like that...
so please americans and their flatterers;
do not mention about peace
do not mention about humanity

just be sorry and pray for poor not only ıraqians but also all people who americans crashes all over the world...

Excuse me, children in the Third World countries work 12 cents a day to feed their families and some of the still get beaten up by their alcoholic or gambling addicted parents. Little girls in those countries still get arranged marriages. Some of them get sold to brothels. Should I go on more of what is happening to children around the world, and not just in America?
And "we cannot describe them as humans" and "animals don't do it to each other but americans do"??? Excuse me, when you make a comparison between humans and animals, you indirectly take away the rights of animals. Also, please don't show those pictures anymore. I find them extremely disturbing. A person with a sicko mind can do it with no trouble with photoshop, you know.

ok guy...

i am agree with you about the children in the 3rd world countries.

but do not want me to believe usa is a defencer country of humanrights in the world. usa just defence their profits..is it normal? yes of course..all countries have to defence their profits, this is the normalist right they have..so, what is the problem? it is which way countries follow when they defence their profits..

the way usa follow in iraq is out of humanity..yes you want to get more petroleum, you want a base in the middleaest for your futuristic ideas, may be you want to obtain peace in iraq, as a matter of fact you want to obscure more land..all of them can be described normal intentions for countries..it is war..but war also has their own rules designated by international treaties..

but, when trying to realize their aim, any country can not allow their army to kill children, babies, civilians,etc....can not allow tortures in their jails...can not allow their wild people to take photos when they torture to other countries' babies, children and civilian people..

at last, all of us know that the photos didnt do with photoshop..the usa person who took photos like this are being judged by usa military courts..they are real..i really dont want to be real but they are..

Okay, clearly we're not gonna board on the same platform together, so why don't you give me the proof that those pictures were not products of photoshop? Remember, with today technology an amateur could make those pictures if that person takes a bit of time to learn about photoshop. If they could airbrush a model from size 6 to size 2 in pictures, then it's possible to do anything with photoshop.

Lennye, it's true, the torturing of Iraqi prisoners in Iraqi jails was a major scandal in the US. Chances are those photos are real. An amateur who takes a bit of time to study photoshop wouldn't be able to produce something like that. It is possible the photo is a fake but the torture of prisoners is not.

phantomer, if what you say is true, then there are not many "people" living in this world. We're just all animals. With war comes war crimes. Every country has committed an atrocity in one form or another and I'm sure Turkey is not exempt. Take the Japanese for example, what they did in WWII in China is so cruel and vicious, for a Christian, it would be a sin just to think about it. Not every American wanted this war in Iraq and Bush will never admit it to be his fault (very similar to the Vietnam War) but the world is so caught up in American politics that we tend to let our passion overcome our reasoning.

Well, even if the photos were real, I still wouldn't wanna believe it based on the way he talked. This is what he said, "i think we can not describe them as people...animals dont do it eachother but americans do and document their photos to show their groundchilds what a wild mans they were...". I, myself, would rather choose to be an ignorant than believing in people with prejudiced opinions.

I don't know why americans think that they are the saviors of the world and from whom they got the priviledge to unify the world under their nationality.
http://odur.let.rug.nl/~usa/E/manifest/manif1.htm#man

".... the right of our manifest destiny to over spread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federaltive development of self government entrusted to us. It is right such as that of the tree to the space of air and the earth suitable for the full expansion of its principle and destiny of growth." (Brinkley 352)


Do you think that "destiny" is a good reason to overspread the continent and to conquer other people?

ok, i accept, a made a mistake when describing usa troops as "americans"..in fact i know not all of americans support this war and bushs politics..but as i said the war is acceptable..maybe usa has valid reasons to be in iraq, for their profits..but in spite off all, torture, killing babies, women, civilians is not acceptable...and i think you do not support this kind of behaviours and of course anybody must not..


unknownsu said me "if what you say is true, then there are not many "people" living in this world. We're just all animals. With war comes war crimes. Every country has committed an atrocity in one form or another and I'm sure Turkey is not exempt."

yes you are right, there arent many...and you, if we behave like them we are just all animals..but i tihnk you arent right "war comes war crimes"..lots of treaty countries have, and according to these teraties wars' rules were designated, and countries signed them...though you are in a war but you cant do whatever you want for winning the war...

also, i dont want to be seen as racist but i am sure Türkiye is exempt..through the centuries, Türks were in war against lots of countries..but neither they were fighting nor after occupation, Türks did not damage any work of art and also did not injure any civilian..

some examples about Türks..
When conquer the İstanbul, the great conquerer Fatih Sultan Mehmed published some rules to his troops about the work of arts and old owners of İstanbul..according to that, any Ottoman didnt damage none of arts iclude Hajia Sophia and others, didnt forced any byzantianes people to be Muslim, didnt want them to kneel down before Sultan..and for centuries these go on and on like this...

and one example from Atatürk, the founder of the republic of Türkiye..after their occupation in 1918, greeks (sons of byzatienes) has commited atrocity in the western Anatolia..they set on fire lots of cities, they violated our grand grand mothers, killed babies and old peoples..when their commender came to İzmir, the westest city of Anatolia, he stepped on a Türk flag that was spread by his men to enter their headquarter..after four years Türks put out them from Anatolia, and our commander Atatürk came to İzmir with his soldiers..he also went to same headquarter..the people who couldnt forget greeks did, spreat greek flag in front of the enter..when he saw it, Atatürk ordered his soldiers to get the flag from there..he want them to clean it and bring to him again..he presented the flag to greek commender who was taken captive by Türks when he showing honour to his colleague...

so not every country has committed an atrocity in one form or another...and i am sure Türkiye is exempt...

How can it be prejudice when it's real since this person is stating what he saw and believed? CNN interviewed two former guards at the prison who did not partake in any of the torture rituals and found that these two guys wake up screaming every night to what they saw in the Iraqi prison. One can't even consider himself American anymore.

If you are going to torture (both mentally and physically) another human being for your own pleasure, you forfeit your right as a human being.

Turkey has never committed war crimes? Ever? Forgive me if I cannot believe that. Either you are brainwashed by continuous propaganda or you are suffering the similar fate of young Japanese today where their history books are completely wiped clean of all their inhumane acts of WWII.

Perhaps you should visit these sites...

be calm man...

Postby phantomer » Mon Dec 19, 2005 10:13 pm

first of all i have to say something about my idea about the people from all over the world..i dont hate anybody from any nation and i am not prejudiced to anyone..i can be friend whole people who want to chat, want to share theirs opinions, want to deal ours ideas, etc...

i also do not believe that some nations is damned..i like every people, if they behave like humanbeing..i do not like the people unjust and are insisting on their unjust mode even if they are Türk...

and our topic...Türks and Türkiye...

initially i have to say something about armeniens and greeks...
they are always unable to stand again Türkiye..i think they are too unfaithful..though they have to thank to Türks, but they are slandering..and the well, charming, developed, philantrophic, benevolent west..yes, the west of the world is supporting them when they are trying to persuade whole world with their lies..but i am not talking about all armenians and greeks..i am talked about greeks and armenians who know realities but trying to spread theirs lies to young peoples, to students in theirs schools, etc...

all of these countries and the others have lived with eachother peacefully in the Ottoman Empire..think that, you are living in domination of one country for 600 years, after 600 years you still have your religion, you are still speaking your mother language, you are still named your babies with your cultures names...after 600 years, if you still can do these, we can mention about a great liberty..and like every starts, ottomans starts went to stop..in fact, everything started at these times..

anyway, i will explain you why armenians and greeks behaved like that..why they behaved too unfaithful against us..now i have no enough time..i cant write fastly in english, because i cant think fastly in english..

and the last one...as you know everybody use internet to prove theirs ideas and there are hundreds of web sites about everything...so it is not the best way to show some adresses..i think we should investigate ours ideas, read something about our thesis, and if we dont accept we should create our anti-thesis..it will support us to learn more about that..

see you...

Well, from my point of view, it doesn't matter what kind of explanation you give, genocide cannot be justified.

It's ironic, isn't it? The quote from William W. Howard is exactly how you are describing the Americans today.

Okay, let's try this example, shall we?
From reading your posts, I can tell Violet, you, Chet Baker, greatJim, Triumph, Tonyyoung and other Chinese members of this board are smart; therefore, can I say all Chinese people are smart? What about other Chinese people who are just as dumb as a brick like the rest of the dumb people in this world? My example is exactly like what he's doing. He based his belief on pictures of some Americans who have degraded themselves as a human being. It has nothing to do with being an American or not; we're talking about one human being tortured another. However, he generalized the whole population of American based on the actions of some Americans. I call it prejudice.

Stereotypes and prejudice will always be part of this world no matter how hard we try to eradicate it and I agree with you. But I was aiming specifically at the American soldiers who tortured the numerous prisoners.

Btw, I'm not smart. I belong to the group of brick brains.

Still thinking... but definitely something bad will happen. Be prepared if you don't apologize. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Now. Now. Now.

I have just had a read of some of the posts here. I must admit I would like someone to show me a country who's soldiers haven't committed some kind of war crime in WAR TIME. I think it would be difficult.

The hard thing is that countries send their soldiers into these places with instructions, sometimes during the course of a situation peoples minds change and bad things happen. I would say that all countries have soldiers that haven't always behaved as they should during WAR. :cry:
