So Soldiers did this? This is the problem, people think of them as something different then ordinary men when they lable them with "Soldier", but they are nothing more than average men with a little more power and a little less law.
For reasons that are as yet unknown, at least one Iraqi Army soldier allegedly opened fire killing Capt. Rowdy Inman and Sgt. Benjamin Portell, both of whom were assigned to the 3rd Squadron.

Shot and/or blown up thousands of little children? Can you back that claim up as to who was responsible for the deaths? There's no doubt that collateral damage happens over in Iraq, but if you're gonna give a statistic, please back it up with hard fact.

but let me ask you this, why is it ok for you to kill and not for me? you are fighting for freedom, so If I kill someone in the street I go to jail. If I kick a woman in the womb I go to jail, but it's ok for a united states soldier?

Again, just sounds like a fabricated (LIE) story for the sole purpose of what we have seen unfold on this thread. Bunch of hogwash! And its disgusting and an insult that so many people are just HOPING that this story is true...so they can point and wave their finger saying "see! see! those horrible americans!!"
Also, if this story were true...how come it hasnt been picked up by Human Rights groups such as:
HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH.ORG
