    Why don't they have ten of them hanging on a rope. They ****ed up, they're the 82nd Airborne there should be hundred of dead Taliban all lined up. They should have a sign hanging up in Arabic that says, "This is what we're going to do to you Taliban mother****ers when we catch you, so you better run." Obama needs to stand up there and tell the Taliban that they shouldn't have started a war with us if they didn't want the indignities of death to occur.

    General Order 1 is ban on desecrating corpses. The video is evidence that will be used in the Court Martial.

    how many of you who are calling for the heads of these soldiers will call for the heads of journalists who photographs dead bodies in combat?

    No, general order 1 is not a ban on desecrating corpses. General order 1 concerns conduct in theatre and it covers things like drinking, sex, taking souvenirs, entering mosques and photography of human casualties. It says nothing about desecrating human bodies.

    They are not "lesser offenses" there is no article in the UCMJ concerning desecrating corpses.

    Don't mean to jump in where I don't belong but drug use in the military usually ends up with the soldior getting the old boot out the gate with an OTH discharge. I don't know what you link says, I only know what I have seen happened a dozen times or more.

    An OTH discharge is not a BCD (Bad Conduct Discharge) or a Dishonorable. It is referred to as an ad sep (administrative separation.) Which basicly means "You're fired." It is not nearly as bad as a BCD or Dishonorable.

    Just sayin. Carry on.

    Bring everybody home. Now. Get our people out of there. No matter where "there" may be. Bring them all home. Now.
    It can't be done quickly - ending our involvement over there could be done quickly but the process of refolding these military members back into civilian employment and homelife should be considered carefully and slow.

    I think people only focus on the warfront effects and ends - and pay little attention to the many other things that must happen.

    It's off topic - but important: dumping them all off without a plan all at once into the homefront will only screw everyone over - with the economy in the ****ter and far less available career positions out there we'll just create another atmosphere of being unneeded and unemployable - which will create serious negative effects on the already worn out and exhausted individuals who have done nothing but be gone and wage war for countless years.

    The last thing I want is to have a continuous cycle of homeless vets who served their country: were broken in the process: and then the country just sort of forgot about them when it's over with.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    There is a distinction between documenting war and desecrating corpses.
