'Army Times' Article Describes U.S. Troop 'Mutiny' in Iraq

If you read the entire piece in Army Time, it hardly encourages troops to disobey orders. The minor insubordination could hardly even be considered a mutiny. The two messages that were conveyed over and over were 1) silly notions about human rights keep US soldiers from doing their job and 2) Iraqis are incapable of civilization. I suppose I should be encouraged by any military order that is sort of disobeyed by the soldiers, but all I really got from that article was a deep sadness about all the human lives that are being hopelessly destroyed in Iraq, in pursuit of some imperial ambitions we can only speculate on.
