"Reading the Thursday, Jan. 5 Mail Call, I am shocked and disappointed. America is supposed to be the greatest nation on earth, the nation that spreads democracy to others, yet a Hagerstown caller says that we should no longer respect the Geneva Conventions or any other treaties we've signed. Every law-abiding country in the world respects the Geneva Conventions. Many of the countries you talk about that behead and execute people at will are our allies in the war on terror. Maybe we should check on who our allies are first. You must not have been reading the papers when you say that one American guard took a picture of a bunch of naked Iraqis. The Iraqi soldiers were abused against the Geneva Conventions, and it was far more than one guard. Three or four have already been court martialed for it. America must set high standards for itself, because we demand high standards of everybody else. If the U.S. lets down its own people, the rest of the world will have nobody to follow, and America will be a disgrace."
