... while naked, starved, wet and cold in February and in a cell and the reasoning was that it was a training exercise should they become POWs.

They want an apology not a payout.

Quote:Angelo Balanos, then 23, had recently joined the Forces to serve Canada — and "pay back all the help we got growing up" in a poor, single-parent family in Windsor, Ont.

"They had music cranked up — Led Zeppelin, I think. I just remember the repetitiveness of the song over and over again for 40 hours straight," he says from his home in Burnaby, B.C.

"There's no other way to explain it but torture. And it didn't last for a couple hours…. To this day, I don't understand why they did this. It was just pure torture for no reason," Balanos says.

He doesn't understand?

No quite a few of them do not understand a training exercise that didn't toughen them up, but rather left them with PTSD and no after support. I think something like SERE would give soliders much needed survival skills training.

He would not comply with their demands, so then he was tortured. Wow, from what I am reading about him, I would call him a hero.

He was/is and I respect that, but I don't care for his hawkish politics.
I used to think highly of him and then when he ran against Obama... that was about the time he totally changed.
I'm not a big fan of war.

Well...at least it was Zep.

If it had been this, for instance:





...there would have been fatalities for sure.

My speakers at work aren't hooked up, so I can only guess what the sound is.

The point is, just more stupidity exposed by those that think they can lead us.

We did this to the enemy during the first Gulf War. Every morning crack of dawn, they would blast Michael Jackson for like 6 hours.

They blasted Led Zep for 40 hours, I believe. So, if an enemy can crack at 6 hours (I assume this 6 hr. mark was chosen to be the effective mark), what harm can be done at 40 hours?

The other POWs in his camp tell a completely different story. They called him the song bird. The media spins a different story for him because he is one of the "special" people. His dad and grandfather were both Admirals.

Soldiers have been getting POW training for a very long time. It isn't supposed to be pleasant. If listening to Zeppelin for a few days drove them to PTSD then they should be thankful they weren't captured by the enemy. You should hear the stories my dad told about POW training before he shipped off to Vietnam.
