    US forces are out of control

    According to this article, from the Guardian, Reuters global managing editor has told the US that their troops' behaviour is increasingly spiralling out of control in Iraq. Indeed, their behaviour has been spiralling out of control ever since the invasion, and their behaviour won't stop spiralling out of control until they are sent home:

    The Reuters news service chief referred to "a long parade of disturbing incidents whereby professional journalists have been killed, wrongfully detained, and/or illegally abused by US forces in Iraq". Mr Schlesinger urged the senator to raise the concerns with Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who is due to testify to the committee this Thursday. He asked Mr Warner to demand that Mr Rumsfeld resolve these issues "in a way that best balances the legitimate security interests of the US forces in Iraq and the equally legitimate rights of journalists in conflict zones under international law".
