How was that Iraqi soldier a threat to them? He couldn't even lift his body off the ground he was so badly wounded. At this stage arn't those
marines required to render aid to him? As he is badly wounded and no longer a threat.
By the way, are all Marines that much of a lousy shot? How many rounds did it take before one hit him? Or were they cheering because they finally hit
Recently a US officer was charged with homocide. When US soldiers at a checkpoint fired a volley of shots into a car driving towards them, he walked
up to the car and fired his pistol into the badly wounded driver, killing him. the officer used the excuse that he was putting him out of his misery,
which also goes against the "render aid to the wounded" rule.
