Sick military Iraqi death porn

John at AmericaBlog has up what has to be some of the sickest sideline action of this immoral war — alleged soldiers trading photos of dead Iraqis and Afghanis for fun and games. Is this part of some sick military culture that is condoned by Rummy and Co? After all, it’s floating out there for all to see on the web — someone at the Pentagon has to know about this. If they don’t, they do now, so John’s archived the filth at NowThatsFuckedUp.com in case it “disappears.”

The soldiers on this site are offering up the death porn in exchange for hardcore porn. Here’s just one photo John has up:

It’s a burned Iraqi body. Here we have an update on the Abu Ghraib “doing a Lynndie” theme — the title of it is called “Cooked Iraqi.” Uncensored version.

Particularly disgusting is the treatment of a dead woman.

The page titled “Nice puss / bad foot” is devoted to the photo of a nude woman laying down on a table, her foot has been blown off by a land mine, blood, muscle, skin and bone are dangling in its place, and her naked crotch is clearly visible in the photo (thus the reference to “puss”).

It’s mind-blowing that they are so stupid as to share this heinous crap on the internet – have they learned nothing from Abu Ghraib? I don’t doubt this kind of sickness occurs and we just don’t find out about it. Witness the stories about soldiers cutting off ears as trophies in Vietnam. It’s the underbelly of war – how does one cope with the stress of seeing human beings blown to bits each day? What will the parents of these guys think when some family friend sends them a few linkees to this disgusting site. How is Jr. going to explain this one away? Sick.

Now it’s simply broadcast to anyone with a keyboard and an internet connection.

Someone is going to need to confirm or deny the authenticity of these sites — the Pentagon better think fast.
