If the court marshal does not, at least be assured that God will punish them for their sins. This is completely immoral, and deeply saddens me. That is one member of the armed forces NOT welcome at my house for dinner.

poor kids, God help them ALL!
They should investigate it up and up, all the way up to where it came from (Chaney

Someone should fry for all that, and for pulling our kids into this, and for making our country the most hated in the world, and for spending trillions on something that was authorized because 3000 people died, and for lying to all of us, and for making the enemy even stronger today (and this place less safe for our kids).

SHame on them (leaders)!

While I do agree that for their own safety the military men and women must consider every person to be a potential insurgent, and every pile of trash near te road a potential IED, what they did was extremely immoral and undermining to their entire purpose for being there.

Just my two cents, ok I'm done.

i'm not surprised.

if i were sent to africa and there was a raging insurgency, i would consider every man woman and child to be an enemy. it's a natural instinct to help survive!

this is why this war needs to end. let the iraqis settle their own future.

True, but we do see corruptness in Iraq. We see British AND US troops dressing up as arabs then shooting Iraqi forces etc. or driving with cars full of explosives. They are stirring the violence.

But yeah I do agree the Iraqis need to settle it among themselves. Before the war we didnt have the violence between Sunnis and Shias.

I notice that we share similar beliefs even though you arent muslim....

yes, we do. i think it's called the belief that every country should mind their own business. haha.
i was raised as a catholic, but i believe more in science than i do the bible. i believe that the universe and life are governed by fixed laws, but they are so complicated that we aren't yet able to understand/explain.

quote from tool: "Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather."

I just wish people would be so eager to fight poverty with the same determination. I mean, at least they wouldnt need to start that war on lies Seriously though, its 21st century and we have poverty in the world. It's sad actually...

really, im giving up faith in america. once clinton is elected, im surrendering my citizenship. i dont want to have any ties to such a nation.

but, i do see where the soldiers are coming from. what happened to "check your fire!" ? i think in the interest of our soldiers they enforce this rule. the enemy has brought many dirty tactics, such as kids with bombs strapped inside their pants to kill american soldiers. my father is in the army, and he explained to me all the nasty, in-humane shit they do just to kill a US soldier.

even if we are there forcefully or not, having women run to soldiers with a bomb in their chest to kill em really leaves them no choice.

i just really wish this never happened, so such crimes never would be committed.

(understand that im not for this shit, but i do understand this idea)
