Rogue British soldiers filmed in new Iraq abuse scandal (Video)

TODAY we expose a rogue squad of British soldiers who savagely attacked a defenceless bunch of Iraqi teenagers —and with 42 brutal blows brought shame on our nation and its proud army.

The horrifying scenes on these pages will shock the world and ignite a huge military scandal. They were captured on a secret home video — apparently filmed for "fun" by a corporal—and show at least eight of his hulking comrades cruelly:

DRAGGING four weedy rioters—all apparently in their early teens—off the street and behind the high walls of a secluded army compound,

BEATING them senseless with vicious blows from batons, boots and fists,

IGNORING their pitiful pleas for mercy, until the incident climaxes with what appears to be an NCO delivering a sickening full-force kick in the genitals of a cringing lad pinned to the ground.

All the while the callous cameraman delivers a stomach-churning commentary urging his mates on, cackling with laughter and screaming: "Oh yes! Oh yes! You're gonna get it. Yes, naughty little boys! You little f***ers, you little f***ers. DIE! Ha, ha!"

The video —later shown to the corporal's pals at their home base in Europe—was exposed to the News of the World by a disgusted whistleblower. He told us the unit and regiment involved but for security reasons we are not publishing the details. Our informant said: "These Iraqis were just kids. Most haven't even got shoes on.

"Those eight soldiers were pumped up and out of control. They're an insult to the thousands of soldiers who have worked so hard in Iraq with courage and dignity for so long.

"They're nothing but a gang of thugs, a disgrace to themselves, their regiment and country."

This snip was taken from an exclusive article by the News of the World. Also worth reading is a article by Chris Ryan (ex British SAS) on the video shown above.

Monsters on the ground and a monster behind the camera. This time they were caught, but how many times haven't they been?

These Iraqis kids are trained at a very young age on how to use weapons, trained is a word I use loosely, as I don’t believe they have a standard to achieve before they are allowed to carry a gun, or any other weapon.

What is not highlighted on the news and in the papers are the scenes that our soldiers have to witness every day, scenes to which they will have to live with in their head for the rest of their life, scenes that are thrown in their face to which they have no control over, Iraqis also destroy their own children’s childhoods, remember there are two sides to every story, not just the side that the journalist wants to highlight to sell more papers.

Having made this point, I am totally against the way these people were treated by these soldiers, but just flip the coin and think how the soldiers would have been treated.

These kids were throwing rocks, not using weapons.

As for the por, poor soldiers, they should not have followed illegal orders by participating in an illegal invasion.

Finally, how the soldiers would have been treated is irrelevant. Look up tu quoque ad hominem. That is what you are making here.
