Reasons #3427 & #3428 why Iraq still looks like a Crusade (photo gallery)

Photo #1 below of a US tank christened "New Testament" has been on the Dept. of Defense's website for 5 days with the note: "this image has been cleared for release." John Aravosis writes, "so some jerk at the Pentagon knew exactly what this was about and found it funny enough to put on their Web site, and it passed various level of review. Lovely." Of pic 2 PusBoy writes, "Are we so goddamned arrogant that we cannot see that people don’t take too kindly to things like dehumanization and humiliation? Do we have to fucking write on a POW’s fucking forehead with a fucking Sharpie?"
