Rare is the case when U.S. soldiers are tried. However I think if the United States wants to operate like it does then it has to let its soldiers
stand trial. If we want to police the world then we have to police ourselves hardest in order to set a good example. 1 story of an innocent civilian
killed by an American soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan undoes countless amounts of trust. The American military can be a tool for nation building abroad
but only if its credible in international eyes.
