Another shocking incident of rape by US soldiers. The last story I heard of was the involvement of 3 soldiers in the rape of a 14 year old and her sister then shot dead the two girls plus their parents while they were holed up in a room next to the girls by two of the soldiers.
Too many incidents of these and the soldiers should be arrested and put in an Afghan jail for life - unless the family prefers a firing squad to shoot the soldiers dead.

I have been following this from the start, and I have a few words for you. It seems MP, that you do not see any U.S. troops as capable of doing anything wrong. First, you make light of the entire story. If it was your daughter that was raped I don't think you would be so quick to put smiley faces on a post about her. Second, you should understand that U.S. soldiers (and many other countries' soldiers) have raped local populations before. Other ATSer's have posted links and even told personal narratives that corroborate this yet you still do not accept it. Third, you then spout off and flame whoever tries to explain why you are wrong and call them "anti-American". I fail to see what is anti-American about preventing child rape. You need to take a different tone with the users here because as a completely impartial observer I can tell you that you are way out of line, antagonizing ATSer's and then pretend like their responses are unwarrented.
Of course now I can expect the same flaming and trolling, but that doesn't bother me in the least, I only hope that you will read what I wrote more than once, and take my signature to heart as well. Btw, I am American and love my country that I try to fix it when things are wrong, not just go along with the propoganda.edit on 14-1-2011 by Skerrako because: Anti-flaming precausionsedit on 14-1-2011 by Skerrako because: Spedit on 14-1-2011 by Skerrako because: (no reason given)
And they most certainly do not deserve to be the focus of ridiculous ad hominem attacks by people who are motivated by hatred of American freedom and the military forces that allow it to exist.
The Pentagon's latest figures show that nearly 3,000 women were sexually assaulted in fiscal year 2008, up 9% from the year before; among women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, the number rose 25%. When you look at the entire universe of female veterans, close to a third say they were victims of rape or assault while they were serving — twice the rate in the civilian population.
