    bull****. I'm an American citizen & a taxpayer, and its my right to condemn our soldiers when they engage in reprehensible conduct.

    or would you prefer we simply lend a blind eye to violations of international law and the military code of conduct?

    maybe we shouldn't arrest soldiers and put them on trial when they kill civilians too?

    Holy crap! It just dawned me! All the soldiers involved in these type of fuaxpa have been white.

    Would the handwringers be as anxious to condemn them were they black? (I say black, because we've recently been informed that Latinos are actually white--see my sig!)

    That's quite a statement, thankfully we don't apply that same logic to the other functions in our society.

    that is a lie about my statement. I never said all Hispanics are white, but tens of millions of them are.

    Unless you've seen combat, you don't get to bitch, judge or anything else.

    Anyone that criticizes out service members is a racist.

    sorry, but my taxdollars pay for these folks. so just as I get to commend their bravery & courage, I also get to condemn them when they **** up.

    or would you prefer we lend a blind eye to violations of common decency?

    maybe we shouldn't put soldiers on trial when they kill civilians?
