As has been brought up many, many times already, just because some enemy break the rules does not give us permission to.
Also, grouping all of our enemy in the same pile is also a mistake.
Are we in the CF responsible for the Abu Gharib prison photos? Of course we are (to them), because over there we all look the same.
We have more access to information than they do and we still lump them all in as Taliban even though it would be incredibly rare for your average Afghan insurgent to even imagine cutting someone's head off. But yet we still paint them with the same brush.
So first, you're going to have to point me in the direction of the part of my post in which I advocate that we in the CF should "break the rules”, or that any Western contractors have or should “break the rules” as it relates to the treatment of captured enemy combatants (be they TB, AQ, HiG, or any other brand name of ******* they associate with). I reread my post and still can’t find that part, so one is left to assume you either fabricated that strawman or just weren’t paying attention.
I admit some confusion as to your second point, where you advise that lumping the muj together is a mistake, but in the next breath seem to see some validation in their possibly thinking CF members had some part in the Abu G debacle, because WE “all look the same”.
As to your final little pearl of "observation", perhaps I shall take the opportunity to remind you that this is an open forum, and perhaps it would be best if you leave your pontificating to the closed confines of your particular Mess.
