I See London, I See France . . .

A man reads the British tabloid newspaper The Sun in London May 20, 2005. The paper carries a front page picture showing imprisoned former Iraqi  leader Saddam Hussein in his underpants and has other pictures inside of various aspects of his life in prison. (Dylan Martinez/Reuters)

What the hell are the American military personnel in Iraq thinking? First, Abu Ghraib. Then, desecration of the Koran. Now, in their latest act of complete stupidity, they hand over pictures of Saddam in his underwear.

England's favorite tabloid, The Sun, quoted American military sources as saying they handed over the pictures "in the hope of dealing a body blow to the resistance in Iraq."

Haven't these Joe-Bobs and Bob-ettes learned anything? Saddam's defense team is already calling this another Abu Ghraib and will most likely create another surge of protest and violence throughout Iraq.

It's incidents like this that make The Peach just want to tear its fuzzy hair out. Contrary to what those who supplied the photos may think, The Peach feels if you keep handing the insurgents ammunition, you are eventually going to get shot.
