America's Dirty War in Iraq
by Stephen Lendman
US wars are lawless.
America wages wars dirty. They're all unprincipled and lawless. It's official policy. Exceptions don't exist. No-holds-barred barbarism is longstanding.
Rule of law principles don't matter. They never did. Modern technologies make today's wars worse than ever. All forms of brutality are commonplace.
On March 6, London's Guardian discussed the Pentagon's link to Iraqi torture centers. General David Petraeus was directly involved.
So was Col. James Steele. He's a retired special forces expert. He's a Central America "dirty wars" veteran.
His Iraq mandate included establishing detention/torture centers. Innocent victims were subjected to monstrous brutality. More on that below.
