Lynndie England: A Retrospective
With the judge's opinion from the pretrial hearing sealed, Lynndie R. England is on course to face her toughest challenge yet--38 years in prison.
Born to some hilljacks in West Virginia, Pfc. Lynndie England tortured her way through humble upbringings to become a media darling.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Lynndie grew up in a trailer parked down a dirt road behind a saloon and a sheep breeding farm. I wonder what kind of rent they pay in that trailer. I could probably get a dozen trailers for the rent I pay in Brooklyn. Sheesh!
Lynndie said she joined the army because she had childhood dreams to become a meteorologist and paralogically the Army equates to Meteorology University. Lynndie knew she had all the right tools to be a successful meteoroglogist. She could point at things. And uh...that's it. Her mother, Terri England, wanted her daughter to enlist so she could see the world. Lynndie didn't join the army to stack hooded naked Iraqis into a human fuck pyramid. It was all part of the meteorology coursework and sightseeing tour.
Now 8 months knocked up with the baby of another soldier charged with torturing, Lynndie is just one month away from delivering a child with the right gene composition to take been there-done that prison abuse to whole new heights.
Is every resident who can form opinions on the planet earth being too hard on poor Lynndie? What did she do really besides point at some guy's genitals? I think many of us would be convicted and locked away under the rules of the Geneva Convention if publicly mocking another's privates on the world stage is a war crime. I mean, is there any proof that she strapped electrodes to the fingers of iraqis and stood them on boxes for 16 hours threatening to electrocute them if they fell--besides all those hundreds of pictures? Who's to say she's the reason that the US can't make a clean get away from Iraq?...aside from the countless hours of sworn testimony from all her superiors stating that it is fact. It takes two to torture. Remember that. I guess that doesn't mean anything but the point is that Lynndie is most likely going to military prison for a long long time and we should all be thankful that we're not.
