AT JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, WASH. The U.S. soldiers hatched a plan as simple as it was savage: to randomly target and kill an Afghan civilian, and to get away with it.

For weeks, according to Army charging documents, rogue members of a platoon from the 5th Stryker Combat Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, floated the idea. Then, one day last winter, a solitary Afghan man approached them in the village of La Mohammed Kalay. The "kill team" activated the plan.

One soldier created a ruse that they were under attack, tossing a fragmentary grenade on the ground. Then others opened fire.

That is just sick! What the hell is wrong with these troops? There is absolutely no justifiable excuse for these actions, they need to be tried in Afghanistan under Afghanistan law. People need to understand that in war people do die, that is the major reason war is wrong, but the majority of civilian deaths are completely unnecessary and could have easily been avoided.

This is tragic, aren't the Afghani's being put through enough? They have radical Islamist groups fighting for control over the country and murdering civilians, a foreign imperialist army pillaging their nation and murdering their people through war, and now they are being killed for fun! What the hell is wrong with these people!?

Don't give me that crap that war does things to people, we all know that, but they aren't all out killing civilians for fun!

Yes, and they need to be tried under international law. Just as USA needs to be tried under international law for the war crimes they conduct on a daily basis, day in and day out....
