You must have stopped reading after #2.

In America you are presumed innocent until proven guilty(even under the UCMJ). In America indvidual are responsible for their actions not everyone they know and their families too.

Does the Army ultimately bear responsibility for these men? Yes. Is every soldier responsible for what these men did? No.

Why are we still over there? I don't know. We eliminated their leader and decimated almost all resistance.

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.

That's not true. If Canadian soldiers did it, I would be posting it too. In fact, some Canadian soldiers have been caught collecting fingers from dead Taliban soldiers; this was what lead to the downfall of the career of Rob Furlong, who (at the time) held the record for the longest sniper kill.


backinblack-
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..


You are indeed correct on all accounts. However, that does not mean that it should not be reported as much as possible in order to do what we can to understand dissuade this behavior in the future (not like that will happen, but still).


THE_PROFESSIONAL-
Weapons will not win this war. It is a war of wits and tactics.


You know, I've been thinking about how people always think that high-end, expensive weapons and training wins wars.

Well, I think wars are just like movies. You can produce a $100million dollar movie but a $10,000 movie can still turn out better based on the capability of the crew and actors involved, regardless of the equipment or training. It's all the human element, no amount of tech can beat a determined man, and no man can beat a woman scorned.

So I guess I can agree with you there. I think people who put too much faith in their weapons are not as strong as the people who put faith in themselves.

so is gaddafi responsible for what his men do? could he not use the same excuse?

expecting no critism of what these people did and then expecting it not to reflect badly on america when your soliders are wearing american uniforms and are representing your country is wishful thinking, and that is certainly how everybody see's it when another country commits crimes, they critise the country ie: those in charge, those who represent you, those you voted in, for not doing anything about it or so that they will do something about it.

keeps happening though dos'nt it.

You were obviously highly trained over a period of time..
Many soldiers are new to the game and just have basic training before being shipped out..

It's not really a true statement to generalize and say all troops are highly trained..

I still see Bush as the bigger war criminal. But this Libya thing really drives home the old Illuminati proverb...
