    you all need to keep in mind during my deployment the army was going through a major reduction in force.between then and now the military is looking for any reason to kick people out,and any reason to leave the highest punishment to scare those who are staying in to do the right thing and not break the rules.

    certainly. those that action causes to get recruited, but who were previously on the sideline

    if this had been taliban in those publicized photos, featuring them beside the mutilated remnants of US GIs you would be leading the post count expressing your outrage

    No, I wouldn't. They do that all the time, it just doesn't get published over here. I'll tell you what does get published...them hacking the heads off live non-combatant civilians...and it goes viral.

    I would love to pose for a picture holding the severed head of a dead Taliban myself. Some guys get to have all the fun.

    If they are still in. If they are IRR..... It depends on how much of a "look at us look at us we aren't mean we promise" show the brass wants to put on.

    I swear man. Mothers Of America is probably a bigger obstacle in this fight than lack of HUMINT.

    Since he has served in Afghanistan recently, I take him at his word.

    Your contention is that only the one who took the pictures could face court martial?
