Brits Can Torture Too

Not to be outdone by their fellow US partners in liberation, it seems UK soldiers are trying to be even worse to Iraqis.

British military officials confirmed Friday that they are investigating new allegations that their soldiers abused a prisoner in Iraq.

Photographs in the Daily Mirror show an Iraqi being battered with rifle butts, threatened with execution, and urinated on by British troops.

The Mirror told how the man was later driven away from the Army camp, still hooded, and thrown off the back of a moving wagon.

“We are not helping ourselves out there. We are never going to get them on our side. We are fighting a losing war,” one of the soldiers told the paper.
