    Such nonsense...

    A terrorist common practice was to wave a white flag, surrender, hands up, etc., then when one of us was exposed to accept the surrender, either the surrendering dude would pull a grenade or a hidden gun, or his buddies under cover would start firing. They also commonly boobytrapped dead bodies so anyone moving/searching them would be killed.

    Our buddies blown to pieces

    lol.....

    It's not a bloodless computer game. You can't come back to life and restart the level and try again till you can do it with no casualties. You need to understand that.

    Maybe if the press would report things like the terrorists misusing the white flag and booby-trapping bodies and hiding behind religious symbols this wouldn't be an issue at all.

    You're fighting barbarians that have a tendency to booby trap their bodies and to fake death to get close enough to blow themselves up and when you've been through the kind of gut wrenching, non-stop, house-to-house fighting these guys have been through you will be in the position to pass judgement.

    Which is exactly why it's the responsibility of the military to handle these problems internally and not the public to judge.

    I see no reason to think the media would purposefully ignore such events, especially war-mongerers like Fox News.

    Nope. Three op-eds. That's not evidence, and that's reality.

    Nope:

    Military Lowers Standards To Fill Ranks - CBS News

    That was a news story.

    There is also this:

    Defense Department statistics show that the number of Army and Marine recruits needing waivers for felonies and serious misdemeanors, including minor drug offenses, has grown since 2003. Some recruits may get more than one waiver.

    Military Accepting More Ex-Cons

    I suppose the military hates itself, and that would explain that article away.

    If you need help:

    Military lowers standards to fill ranks - Google Search

    As for the rest of your silliness and comprehensions issues:

    If someone gets in the military, changes thier life around and serves honorably, i sure as hell won disparage them or use them to insult the military....

    Can someone name those who got in on waivers who subsequently committed war crimes so we can see they aren't simply talking out thier ass.

    the fact that we had to bring in ex-cons to fight are wars, tells us that:'

    a. are forces were stretched too thin.

    b. the American people weren't really into these wars.
