After reading the article about the Abu Ghraib and watching the video in class made me think "what are the real terrorists". In my opinion I will define the term terrorist as "someone who does violent things to the others to get what they want and not respect their human rights". I have read other articles in my other classes about the ways that American soldiers torture prisoners in the Iraq or Afghanistan. Neither I support what the soldiers do; neither I disagree with the terror that they use to get what they want from the prisoners. In my opinion, if there is war included, everything is expected to happen to win the war. Both the parties in the war will lose people, resources etc. I am against of starting a war between countries and avoiding the start of a war. But when the war is started, everything is acceptable to win the war. I am against of torturing other people and watching the videos of the Abu Ghraid put me in shock how those people are being treated. But the American soldiers have to do whatever it takes to get the information that they need from the prisoners to protect their country. American soldiers are there in a mission to win the war and protect America, protect us and make sure that there wont be another 9/11.
