I agree that the soldiers that did those horrible things should get the worst punishment that could be handed out but painting the entire U.S military in the same light is EXACTLY the same as saying all Muslims are terrorists.

All black people are in gangs, every Mexican is a illegal, and every single middle aged white mans soul objective in life is to put down all other races. This video is pretty much saying every single person in the military is a rabid, war mongerer, animal.
It's about as one sided as it gets. If it could acknowledge the other 90% of the military that do not want to have crimes against humanity on their roster list, it would be a strong video.
There are sick humans in the military, that will abuse their powers. However, there are good people in the military that believe in helping the people in the Middle East and they will sacrifice their lives doing so.

I'd like to add just a very minor point. The soldiers guilty of raping and murdering the 14 year old girl were all sentenced to between 90 years and life in prison. And while a few could be released after 20 years I believe they should serve the full sentences.
In my 20 years in the Air Force I was never ordered or asked to do something illegal or immoral; perhaps asked to do something not too smart or risky but that's another story.
However, I must ask, when was the last time we went to war in a constitutional manner? Does the Constitution even matter any more?
