A US soldier has pleaded guilty to murdering a severely wounded 16-year-old Iraqi, the military says.
Staff Sgt Johnny Horne Jr was convicted of unpremeditated murder of the civilian in Baghdad's Sadr City suburb on August 18.


Sentencing is due to take place today and is likely to result in imprisonment for up to 10 years.

Although I realise life is hard as a soldier in Iraq, it is good to see justice being served fairly. I imagine we will see more and more of these cases now, not only regarding US forces but also other member forced in Iraq.

With how many crimes that are occurring over there I am very surprised to see any justice dealt at all to US offenders.

But then again who is guiltier, the soldier for committing the horrendous act or the people who put such dangerous people over there in first place?
