A year after President Bush declared major combat operations over in Iraq, the war in Iraq has finally ended. In case you don’t know, the US lost.

Also over is my brief and very skeptical love affair with Sharon. If Likud voters want Greater Israel, they’ll not only get it, they’ll live to regret it.

While on the topic of Abu Ghraib, does anyone know of any soldiers of any country punished severely (i.e., long prison term or capital punishment etc.) for war crimes against the enemy by their own military? As Diana Moon points out, Lt.Calley of My Lai does not count since he served only 3.5 years in house arrest and was pardoned by Nixon. I am looking for soldiers who actually served their sentences.
