I wonder how many of these psychos will be going berserk once they head back home.
What goes around comes around.
I have spoken to a combat stress councillor first hand who said that the UK have councilled troops with PTSD in the battlefied. Not away from the triggers, bang in the middle of them! Not the best way of doing things
Perhaps that's why you don't hear of many if any Brits loosing it
I'm a combat trim manager myself ( mental trauma ) and can vouch for the way the Brits do it
Spot em early, catch em early, start the process there and then

What are you talking about? I have fought with a British platoon. They are effective and brave. So were we. I don't see what kind of point you are trying to make with that comment.
Though we did make the first run across the field while they were still arguing about which formation was "optimal" .
We heard them yelling at each other and then next thing you know you hear a couple of marines running across the field like a bat out of hell screaming " Oh sh*t , Oh sh*t ". Was hilarious. They secured an over watch and the rest of us moved up , but yeah. We made the first move so i think America wins on that one.
They did get 4 kills and we only got 2 , so they did kill more than we did , but they were moving against the wood line while we had a small detachment holding the left. We took 2/3s of the village they took 1/3 and got the outside wood line , right flank. So obviously they had more to shoot at , the two we killed though were in windows.
They also said CAS and GTG didnt count. If you guys didnt have such sh*t aircraft , we wouldnt have this problem
If CAS counted on the fleeing terrorist we would have had 7 kills against your 4.edit on 11-3-2012 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)
If a Brit can be brought to America to face the consequences of his petty crime then the American soldier must face the consequences of his appalling crime in Afghanistan and before the Afghan judicial system.
Hand the guy responsible for the atrocity over to the Afghans. That is the right thing to do and it will appease everyone. Well, maybe not some Americans.

... Just as foreign nationals in our country are regularly turned over to their countries for trial.
So why didn't this apply to Zacarias Moussaoui
Having entered a guilty plea, Moussaoui was eligible for the death penalty. Germany said it would not release evidence against Moussaoui unless the U.S. promised not to seek death as punishment. On April 27, 2005, French Justice Minister Dominique Perben said, "When France gave elements of information about Mr Moussaoui to the American justice, I obtained a written engagement of the United States not to use these elements to require or execute the death penalty."
and why do the US authorities want to extradite Julian Assange, Gary McKinnon and Kim Dotcom amongst others?
And lets not forget the forgotten NatWest Three who were extradited from the UK to stand trial in America for their role in the Enron scandal.
Extradition, it seems, is a one way thing where all other countries have to give to America but America won't reciprocate.
In the USA, you cannot be punished for defaming the dead, under the legal assumption that no libel can exist against a dead person. However, it appears that in Germany it's a serious offense to dishonor "the memory" of the deceased.

A former Roman Catholic priest who was extradited from America to face sexual abuse allegations today denied the charges against him.

Well thanks to the internet I'm able to communicate with Afghans who can tell me what's really going on. Like this one for example:
If you think I get my opinion and facts from the MSM you are greatly mistaken and I am indeed offended by such an accusation. You clearly haven't a clue which is quite sad for someone who claims to have been there. I mean really? And you really think you have improved the lives of Afghans?

"ask some Afghani women if they are better off now or in 2001." Well I guarantee the 3 who were just killed today were much better considering they were alive!
We werent in thier lands when they flew planes into the towers or the Pentagon, blew a hole in the side of the cole, set off a truck bomb underneath the world trade center during the first attack on it in the 90's, had our embassies bombed in Africa, etc etc etc etc.

Guinness world record for the biggest aggressor on the planet:
The US army flag has 183 campaign ribbons on it. Those 183 ribbons each represent wars. When you compare that to the 236 years the US has actually been around as a country, you're talking about a war on average of once every year and three months.
This particular nation has used some of the most deadliest weapons on human population ever created for example: Nukes, Napalm, cluster bombs and uranium ammunition.Plus a mad bunch of bastardized mentally unstable troops.
