Maybe you missed my poll. If you have one post it. The poll I posted shows you in the 11% that don't "get it". War is hell.
You also dont like to read I take it. My source I provided shows over 1 million servicemen and women have served in these two conflicts, I did not talk about casualties. The relevency of this number is to show you how few are commiting these type of crimes when compared to how many are over there serving and not committing crimes!
I also see you don't like to answer questions. Please state what you want to see done to promote change in our military to prevent these types of incidents.
Don't just rant, you seem pretty intelligent help open the discussion to promote change.

in assuming, you've only made an Ass of yourself
your ignorance of such things as the civil rights and anti-war movements,
just means you joined up so you'd have somebody remember your 1st name for you, lol
good luck, robo- boy, when you become useless to your masters, they will toss you aside, like so much garbage, that's how it is when you allow yourself to be a tool
keep it zipped Henaku,
and leave those school girls alone.

Because they don't 'get' the extremist part. Most in this thread are a bunch of hippies worried about 'war crimes' (I LOL at the contradiction every time) where you're allowed to put a bullet through someone's face but pissing on them is obviously the worst thing in the world.

All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?"

This has probably been posted somewhere already, but it's something I want people to acknowledge. Not the quote itself, but the purpose behind it. Everyone is quick to jump all over our boys when they do something wrong, but couldn't care less when something happens to us by the enemy. You people disgust me.
All you people who talk about how we're the evil invaders and all that are idiots. If you had it your way, America would not exist. Our enemies would have already moved in and conquered us. And guess what? You types of people would be the first ones eradicated.
DerepentLEstranger is a perfect example of the type of people I'm talking about. Let me finish this with another quote.
"Our Country won't go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won't be any AMERICA because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!"
