Is it just me?

Answer: A female soldier. Question: Who should we blame for the atrocious American behavior against the prisoners held in the Iraqi prison?

Is Mrs. Linklater the only person who is shaking her head in disbelief that the focus of the charges for torturing captured Iraqi insurgents is a pregnant 5'2" female guard?

Has PMS come this far?

But, wait. Let's consider the upside -- after all these years of telling women they were the weaker sex, perhaps the truth has finally reared its pixie hairdo head. 

No longer will the cry, "Boys will be boys" be a males only badge of honor attached to  flagrant behavior.

Now women can proudly raise their fists and shout "Girls will be girls!!" knowing that it carries some real weight behind it. 

Finally whining isn't our only weapon. We have mastered the art of cruel and unusual punishment -- pointing at the private parts of a naked man and smiling for the camera.  You go girl!

Mrs. Linklater is feeling better about this whole thing already.
