Restoring Law and Order in Iraq

Posted by on May 3, 2007

Today, the Chronicle reported on American soldiers’ efforts to bring safety and security to the people of Iraq:

A platoon sergeant warned [an Iraqi family] that the kidnappers might be back to finish the job and that the Americans could not provide permanent guards. […] “If I were you, I’d sit in here with a rifle, and if anyone comes through that door, shoot them in the head,” the sergeant told [the family]. “You’ve got to protect yourself.”

The military continues to display a strong show of support of the Iraqi criminal justice system. They have had no luck restoring the popular series Law & Order to the Iraqi airwaves, however.
