    You should be licking these guy's asses, because if not for them, your ass might be out there on that battlefield.
    Killing on a battle field and mocking the dead and posing dead bodies for pictures are completely different things. There are lines you just dont cross on the battlefield, and especially not well after a battle. I expect these soldiers, who are there representing America. How would any of you like it if you son, brother, father or friend died in Afghanistan and a bunch of people there held up his remains in an effort to mock his death? How about if you mom or wife died and some iraqis took pictures tea bagging her? You gonna shrug it off like oh well its fine. my mom deserve to be violated in death.

    You don't have the authority to judge these men. Only a courts martial, convened under the Uniform Code of Military Justice has that authority. They will be judged by a jury of their peers...which you are light years from being.

    Civilians can't relate to the pressures of war placed upon soldiers, but they can most certainly judge their actions. In some cases they are being idealistic and naive, but there are certainly deviant acts (This one doesn't qualify in my estimation) that call for rebuke.

    sorry friend, but the USA is a signatory of the Geneva Conventions, and the UN Charter. And we have a military code of conduct, which certainly doesn't allow such actions as those mentioned in the OP.

    any soldier who refuses to abide by these laws, rules & regulations...has no business in the military as they are likely to commit a war crime.

    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?
    You, nor anyone else in this country, has the right to condemn anyone.

    There is no murder in combat - there is only KIA and FIDO
