As things get worse in the Middle East more news comes about Troop abuse. After allegations that U.S. Troops had executed civillians a new report comes that they have raped a woman and then killed her and her Family.
 



news.yahoo.com
BEIJI, Iraq - Five U.S. Army soldiers are being investigated for allegedly raping a young woman, then killing her and three members of her family in Iraq, a U.S. military official said Friday.

The soldiers also allegedly burned the body of the woman they are accused of assaulting in the March incident, the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Some people will call it stress, others call it deranged, I call it sick. No wonder they want the U.S. Troops out of Iraq if this is what they are doing. I wouldn't want people in my country if they raped and executed people for no other reason then to do it.

Im waiting with bated breath for the supporters of the iraqi fiasco to assure me that iraq is safer place for women and children because of the us military presence. I bet they can even show me some nice propoganda pictures of smiling iraqi school children and burka-less women voting. But how many more atrocities are necessary to make it clear that the attack on iraq was bad idea at start and that it is a bad idea keep are troops their now?

Apparently the lives of this family have little value to the us government.

I love the way the two previous posters on this thread have taken one incident and extrapolated that to become the normal modus operandi for U.S. forces in Iraq. Are you so both filled with anger & hate that you're willing to paint every soldier with the same brush?

No wonder they want us out if this is the way we act--implying that all act like that.

Apparently the lives of this family have little value to the U.S. Government--as if the soldiers were order to go out & rape & kill.

I would just like to point out that the personal commentary is full of assumptions. Please take the time to revise it and consider that the soldiers are alleged to have done this and the matter is under investigation. You and I don’t know the full details yet, so please don’t hop on the wagon so fast next time.

"There is no indication what led soldiers to this home. The investigation just cracked open. We're just beginning to dig into the details."

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said he had no additional details on the incident but added that the military routinely investigates all allegations of misconduct.

However, a U.S. official close to the investigation said at least one of the soldiers, all assigned to the 502nd Infantry Regiment, has admitted his role and been arrested.


Read the rest, someone has already been discharged over this outrage.

That’s fine, but until everything is official and sorted out I’m not going to jump in on this, one way or another.

One incident my butt. You are either a partisan shill, a warmonger or you are complete denial.



l On March 18, troops from the 101st Airborne Division shot dead a 13-year-old boy and his parents at their home in Dhuluiya claiming they were among eight people killed after a patrol was ambushed;

l On April 26, a man from Hamandiya was reportedly taken from his home and shot by marines;

l On May 4, two unarmed women and a mentally handicapped man were killed in Samarra by the 101st Airborne Division;

l On May 30, US soldiers killed two Iraqi women in Samarra – one was about to give birth. The car they were in was racing to a maternity hospital when soldiers shot at it for failing to stop.

Some 600 cases of abuse by GIs against civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan have so far been investigated by the Pentagon. Although around 230 soldiers have been disciplined, most military personnel found guilty of abusing civilians received “administrative” punishment such as being reduced in rank, loss of pay, confinement to base or extra duty. Out of 76 courts martial, only a few resulted in jail terms of more than a year.

I wont bother bickering with you, the evidence speaks for itself.

Why is it that whenever the US does it, it's highlighted by EVERYONE. No one takes the time to look back and be like hey, they're not all bad. NO!, its every US soldier is evil and theyre all over just to give the iraqis hell. I know this is a horrible attrocity and isnt the first time this has happened. Not all soldiers are like that. No reason to put them all in one group.

Hey, chill man, I didn't see anyone painting ALL soldiers with the same brush. This is the conduct of a percentage of personell to small to compute without a calculator.

Maybe it's because the US has a habit of acting like it's doo doo doesn't stink?
Or maybe it's the "liberal" media...

It's all a plot by Osama Bin Laden, the New York Times, and the Communist Internationale, who are all working together to DESTROY AMERICA!!

In fact it is the nefarious agents of the liberal media that have been secretly donning US military uniforms, going out and slaughtering civilians, and then reporting it, all to defame our soldiers, who are each and every one heroic paragons of moral virtue!

The blame for the travesty should be placed on the demopublicans that got us into the iraq mess and thier refusal to get us out immediately. The soldiers are victims of those same cowards.

No it isn't. It is the fault of those who committed the act. Stop shifting blame to anybody/everbody else.

But I will not jump on the bandwagon and condemn these men until a proper investigation has been completed.

did this incident bring a revenge killing....


The suspects in the killing were from the same platoon as two soldiers kidnapped and killed south of Baghdad this month, another official close to the investigation said Friday. Their mutilated bodies were found June 19, three days after they were abducted by insurgents near Youssifiyah southwest of Baghdad.




The military has said one and possibly both of the slain soldiers were tortured and beheaded. The official said the mutilation of the slain soldiers stirred feelings of guilt and led at least one member of the platoon to reveal the rape-slaying on June 22.


its hard to figure out what is true and what is propoganda......i suspect that most everything is spun, regardless of any facts found, to give it the best or worst impact...

I guess that those Ethical Trainings for US troops did not work out very well.

Good old SS tactics in full effect.

Rape, Kill and Burn.

Winning the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi population in the process.

What will happen with these "Soldiers"?

Hey - does anybody still remember Haditha?

Tip of the Ice-Berg?

Associated Press

The soldiers had studied their victims for about a week and the attack was "totally premeditated," the official said on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing. The family had just moved into the home in the insurgent-riddled area around Mahmoudiya, 20 miles south of Baghdad.

The case is among the most serious against U.S. soldiers allegedly involved in the deaths of Iraqi civilians. At least 14 U.S. troops have been convicted.

Last week, seven Marines and one Navy medic were charged with premeditated murder in the shooting death of an Iraqi man near Fallujah west of Baghdad.

Planned?

Interesting...

I guess Rape and Massacres are on the GI's schedule of things to do in Iraq before he comes home.

Souljah, why don't you knock it off with your hatred? It sounds like you find pure pleasure when something bad happens to America. Pointing out other instances of wrongdoing is one thing, but statements like "I guess Rape and Massacres are on the GI's schedule of things to do in Iraq before he comes home." are a bit over the top.

JSO, what part of this happened to America? What did Iraq do to America?

NOTHING!

We somehow go from "Get OBL, the Taliban attacked us!" To "Saddam didn't do anything, get him!"

Iraq never attacked us, OBL and Saddam hated each other and weren't in cahoots, so what exactly bad happend in America because of Iraq?

I'm talking about bad news for America. Bad news causes by bad apples affects all of us; the troops, their families, and everyone that loves this country.

Souljah hates the US so much that he loves to make it seem like our entire military is like that. Just look at the passage I quoted from him.

As far as your question "What did Iraq do to America?" I never said that. You did. So go answer your own question.

Is it just me or is there a stench of hypocrisy here.

I don't remember those saying "wait until all the facts are in" affording the same consideration to those intered in abu grab or gitmo.
I seem to remember more of an "hang em high" attitude when it concerned the Arabs detained by the military.
