    One would think, hey? I'm sure a cocky, punk-ass, disrespectful, loser could talk himself from an OTH to a BCD but not a Dishonorable. Dishonorable is really some bad ju-ju. You gotta REALLY **** up to get one of those. Attitude don't really play a part in that one.

    I'm just talking "standard" procedure. Since the zero tolerance policy kicked in they been handing out OTH's like Halloween candy. That really ain't no biggee. I knew sailors that went for one intentionally just to get out. Back then, all you had to do was act queer or smoke a doobie to get a OTH. An OTH can't hurt you none in the civillian world. But a BCD or Dishonorable can follow you around. BCD and Dishonorable can also cost you any accumulated military benefits.

    did you even read the OP?.... this topic isn't about desecrating corpses.. it's about taking pictures of dead afghans.

    maybe you should be more like me and get on topic?

    Did I say that? No? Didn't think so.

    Obviously, you totally missed the point...but...that comes as no surprise.

    Let's have some more history lessons.

    dishonerables definately follow you everywhere.soldiers who recieve a bcd can appeal within 2 years of recieving a bcd through special courtmartial to get it upgraded to oth ,but its not guaranteed.

    the army has jumped on the dishonerable discharge wagon because rules have become lenient in the last decade because of war,and since force reduction and the wars coming to an end,they are trying to set an example that the army isnt going to let soldiers run free anymore.to make it worse they are actually starting to chapter out all the members of the jelly belly club again,something they havent pushed too mch since before iraq and afghanistan.

    You mean the war where we annihilated thousands of Japanese civilians with one bomb? The war where we carpet bombed German cities night and day? Can you show me where a "Libbo" said World War II was "clean"?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You missed the point, the Civil war photos were not comparable.

    You learned your lesson and proved my point, war dehumanizes man to where he can do these things.
