Iraq Reality Check: Abu Ghraib

Just like the fiasco in Fallujah, Abu Ghraib scandal is another eye-opener for all those who had the naďve belief that the Iraq War (or insurgency) would be somehow different and "cleaner" than other armed conflicts of the same nature.

US military forces may have the best equipment, the best training and the best logistical support in the world, but this is apparently not enough for victory in the nasty, prolonged guerrilla war. US military, just like any military in the same situation, is forced to use certain methods that the militaries of enlightened democratic and self-righteous Western industrialised nations at the beginning of 21st Century aren't supposed to do.
