I love ATS.

Yes, this guy is an ass-hat and if found guilty, ought to hang.

But, as I've said several times in other threads, when the Taliban kill women and children, what do you hear on ATS?

Crickets.

That would be because this is a conspiracy website, and the Taliban killing women children both DOES NOT go unmentioned, and is kind of not conspiratorial. Just run of the mill terrorism and murder.

He says he doesnt remember doing it, lol, thats because he didnt bloody do it IMO. It was done as a "community punishment". They punished the villiagers and this in turn will make the villiagers turn against the fighters to protect their children from NATO forces.

This modus operandi is as old as the hills and has been practiced in nearly every war ever carried out. This was a war crime but the guy they are accusing isnt responsible, IMO of course.

I believe they are probably trying to convince him that he did do it, afterall they had him dosed up on drugs at the time!

After WW II this practice was made illegal by international law, where if the military did carry this tactic out and were caught, they could face hanging ala the Nuremberg Trials. So, good reason for "plausible deniability", which is to set up a patsy who will be under the medical care of a specialist psychiatrist (ala Timothy McVeigh or Sirhan Sirhan).
note: same doctor who "treated" McVeigh also ended up treating Jared Lee Loughner. May be worthwhile for someone to check to see if the doctor "treating" Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is the same one.

Just why was this thread moved to "other current events"??

I request site admins to move this thread further down to "rants" or something....or better yet, delete this thread, entirely.

There have been no military executions since 1961...


The military of the United States executed 160 soldiers and other members of the armed forces between 1942 and 1961 (these figures do not include German prisoners of war, war criminals and saboteurs executed by military authorities between 1942 and 1951). There have been no military executions since 1961 although the death penalty is still a possible punishment for several crimes under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Of these executions, 157 were carried out by the United States Army. The United States Air Force conducted the three remaining executions, one in 1950 and two in 1954. The U.S. Navy has not executed anyone since 1849.

So in other words, there's a good chance that the child killer gets away unpunished.
Wow, didn't see that coming.

I do recall reading the original reports coming out about this killing spree and having it involve multiple soilders (according to eye witness accounts). I do believe there is a thread about it floating around the boards somewhere.
