US Army 'kill team' in Afghanistan posed with photos of murdered civilians


www.guardian.co.uk

They fear that the pictures could be even more damaging as they show the aftermath of the deliberate murders of Afghan civilians by a rogue US Stryker tank unit that operated in the southern province of Kandahar last year.

Some of the activities of the self-styled "kill team" are already public, with 12 men currently on trial in Seattle for their role in the killing of three civilians.

Five of the soldiers are on trial for pre-meditated murder, after they staged killings to make it look like they were defending themselves from Taliban attacks.

Why?

My country of Canada has vowed to continue supporting the US mission in Afghanistan for a second time, in order to support this behavior? This is some messed up stuff. I wonder why US troops would do this, and even bother to take pictures of it... who are they trying to impress?

At least a few of these guys went on trial for it.

PS: Here's another quote from the article:


The case has already created shock around the world, particularly with the revelations that the men cut "trophies" from the bodies of the people they killed.

An investigation by Der Spiegel has unearthed approximately 4,000 photos and videos taken by the men.

Murder has been and always will be in every war. Disgusting and wrong, yes. I find it shocking how this is such a huge deal, civilians get murdered in cold blood everyday in every country.

Its sick. It reminds me of what mass murders and serial killers do when they kill and take a trophy.
No difference at all IMO.
And my country of OZ is right behind you's too.
Aren't we lucky to see that our tax dollars are supporting these people and there cowardly acts.
And to top it all off, our tax dollars will go to defend these alleged criminals.

Its a crazy world.

There are no picture .....None look for yourself Whats the reason they arent providing a few as proof to the public ....Believe me if these pictures existed they would be all over the net already....This is just another smoke screen meant to distract us from the real issues at hand.

Obama should be put on trial for this since he is the Commander in Chief. We are putting trial the small fries when it should be Obama who should be arrested for this crime.

The only reason people care is because it's US troops that did it, This thread will shortly go from the topic of war crimes to how much and why everyone hates Americans.

Yeah, these are Americas Finest alright.
I wish I had a few mins alone with them, one at a time.
You know, so we could talk things out.

Disgusting pieces of garbage.
I can only hope that Karma decides to remove them from this Earth in the same way.
I am tired of these pieces of **** breathing my air.

Sadly it is because the my "elected" officials tell your government what to do and obviously no one says NO to the US, otherwise the world wouldnt be the shambled piece fo crap it is today.

I guess this is just the type of "freedom" Obama wants to give to the people of Libya. I hope they know what they are getting themselves into.

I doubt they would because this would be a no weapon fight. If it was a weapon fight, he would still win because he would have intelligence and wits behind him.

I have to agree. I do tend to forget that people only care about what some people in the US do.

1. I want to see these photos.

2. It won't be long before this thread turns into an "all American soldiers do this and they're all murderers" thread. And the point of the topic will be lost.

3. If this is indeed true, I hope that the US Army does not drag their feet in prosecuting them.

This is why every helmet needs to have a cam where the commanders can monitor their troops.

I agree mate..
There's over 100.000 troops..
No one can expect there not to be a few rouges..
Yes it tarnishes the rest but it's far from unexpected..
Seems the military is doing what it should and prosecuting these scumbags..
