    It is irrelevant what the objective is? Is that really what you think? The point is that we have lost sight of what the objective is. We cannot stop the Taliban, I doubt the Afghan forces can defend themselves, and this quagmire has become a pointless exercise. If you think the troops are justified in sinking to this level of undisciplined conduct, then you don't have really any rationale for supporting this continuing folly.
    That is a bit different from what I said. You stated this was an undefined war with undefined enemies, and that we aren't even fighting enemy combatants. So, if we're not even fighting enemy combatants, and we supposedly don't even know why we're there, then why are we there? Shouldn't we know who the enemy is when our soldiers go to fight in another land?

    I'm not talking about the objective, but the fact that our soldiers are fighting insurgents connected to the Taliban and Al Qaeda. If you look closely at my posts, you'd know I haven't said they're justified, or right in doing what they did. Merely, it's understandable, and I can sympathize with their reasoning.

    But hey, again....you got to go totally off context and used it to once again display your messed up rhetoric. You probably consider that a good job.
    Show me what you have....

    Desecration of bodies...is that your bull**** argument?

    If you would clarify your UN statements and show exactly how it relates to this topic, it'd undoubtedly be appreciated.

    The question is for those who are ok with US military members doing it. I want to know if they would be ok with the opposition doing it to our dead, especially if they dead was one of their family members.

    I am not sure what laws are being broken but some clearly are if these guys are facing charges.

    I just told you what the official mission is, to defeat AQ. Again, how many AQ are left in Afghanistan?

    It is not reasoning, it is an irrational reaction to an increasingly undefined mission. It is a symptom of undisciplined leadership as the report shows.
