So, who's responsible for the torture and murder of Iraqi POWs?

Some of you might think you know the answer. "The soldiers who did the torturing," some of you may be saying. "The officers who ordered it," others of you might think. "The leadership who commissioned the war", still others might respond.

You're all WRONG.

Here's who's really at fault.

BITCHES:

"I think the other point that no one is making about the abuse photos is just the disproportionate number of women involved, including a girl general running the entire operation. I mean, this is lesson, you know, one million and 47 on why women shouldn't be in the military. In addition to not being able to carry even a medium-sized backpack, women are too vicious." (Ann Coulter)

"One factor that may have contributed -- but which I doubt investigators will want to even consider -- is whether the presence of women in the unit actually encouraged more misbehavior, especially of the sexual nature that the pictures reveal." (Linda Chavez)

"The image of that female guard, smoking away as she joins gleefully in the disgraceful melee like one of the guys, is a cultural outgrowth of a feminist culture which encourages female barbarians. Feminists are good at creating a culture that produces 'equal-opportunity abusers'." (George Neumayr)

RAGHEADS:

"Some Arab commentators are repeating the myth that the West has, once again, humiliated Muslims. If there has been humiliation, it isn't the fault of the West. It is Muslims' fault. They took trillions of dollars in oil money, and instead of building a culture dedicated to elevating their people, including women, they have squandered it on agendas and adventures that had the opposite result." (Cal Thomas)

LEFTIST ACADEMIC RELATIVIST POSTMODERNIST INTELLECTUALS:

"The New York Times profiles some of the soldiers implicated in abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib, and to be honest, they sound like a bunch of losers. Increasing the quality of military recruits would probably help avoid future Abu Ghraibs. One constructive step toward that end would be for elite universities to drop antimilitary policies, so that the military would have an easier time signing up the best and brightest young Americans. Many academic institutions have barred ROTC or military recruiters from campus for left-wing political reasons--first as a protest against the Vietnam War, and later over the Clinton-era 'don't ask, don't tell' law. It's time the academic left showed some patriotic responsibility and acknowledged that the defense of the country--which includes the defense of their own academic freedom--is more important than the issue du jour." (James Taranto)
