  2. Bucca is a Shithole... it was in 2003 and no doubts with 5,300 detainees now it must be even worse. Don't judge it or the press response until you have deal with the criminal justice system operated in Bucca. Can't say much more.

    Seconded...had a couple visits there in 03. Bulk of the inmates were actually housed 'outside' under canvas at that time. IIRC, so were the guardforce.

    The guard unit in charge back then had some guys hospitalized after being attacked with steel tentpegs.

    We had to go up there in a White Fleet jalopy for some juice one night - approached the gate VERY slowly, with our pale European faces as visible as we could make them.....

    It's a flat bit of desert with a PX the size of a scout hut and rock-all else ..... a six month tour there would be bad enough let alone a year in theatre, which the Cousins seem to stick people with.....enough to send anyone doolally....
