I assume this ad is only posted online. Too bad you do not see this kind messaging in the general media.

Hey, thanks for pointing out that the spot was about Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay.

Funny, the ICRC doesn't seem to have any problems with situations where "prisoners" are decapitated as a matter of policy.

Great review, dude.

Woo hoo great ad. Now I'm not going to go abuse a prisoner of war. Before I saw this I was totally going to do it, but no, not anymore. Seriously, where will an ad like this run. How many even have the opportunity to abuse prisoners of war that this ad even applies? All this thing does it make me as an American and our military who are risking their lives daily sound like horrible people. I don't want other coutries to hate us. Great. If the solution is stop abusing people, there's not a thing I can do about it. Thanks. Thanks a lot for this ad.
