England Swings

How could I not be deeply offended by the latest testimony in the Lynndie England Abu Ghraib prison hearings?

A soldier pointing at some guy's Johnson? Yawn.

A soldier holding a prisoner by a leash? Unfortunate, but I'll get over it.

The truth is much more horrible than I imagined. The testimony is clear. Thousands of miles from home, and in an unfamiliar land, Lynndie England was getting action.

There's Lynndie sneaking into another part of the prison late at night to get it on with another soldier. There's Lynndie skinny-dipping on a Virginia beach. There's Lynndie posing topless for photos. There's Lynndie involved in (yikes) "oral sodomy".

Let's take a look at Lynndie. You know the old scene where the girl thinks she's ugly, but her mom tells her she has "inner beauty?" Lynndie's mom probably used the words "inner beauty" at some time during her childhood. We can assume she hadn't heard about the oral sodomy at the time.

Lynndie does not possess traditional beauty. She's a troll.

On the scale of human beauty, she is roughly the female equivalent of this guy.

Maybe she's a little better. It's tough to say. Apples and oranges.

Back to the reason for my offense. I am not pretty, but I've got that guy beat. I am at least the male equivalent of Lynndie, but throughout my twenties I struck out about as many times a year as Sammy Sosa.

If the horizontal bop had been readily available to males of Lynndie's relative attractiveness, I'd have had action eight days a week. I don't think I would have participated in any oral sodomy, but it would have been nice if someone had offered.

The glow of pregnancy just doesn't suit her in that photo. Maternity camo fatigues aren't...flattering.

As for 'inner beauty', I just don't see much shining through in Lynndie. At all.

I suspect this was a case of "any port in a storm". Anyone who's been deployed to the sandbox will have an idea of what I mean- the sausage/taco ratio isn't pleasant. On one installation with around 800 troops, every guy under 40 knew who the ten hotties were, where they worked, and if they were approachable.
