    What exactly are they facing prosecution for? If they intentionally harmed a civilian, they should certainly be charged.

    Surely you remember it. They claimed to have been fired at and shot up some civilians. The military tried to prosecute, but evidence was hard to come by. Still, it was the military that had the problem with them.

    No I don't remember. The military is generally responsible for prosecuting soldiers though.

    True. Which makes an interesting to hate the military for prosecuting the military.

    I don't know if anyone's saying that. It's just some people are annoyed that our soldiers are expected to walk on egg shells while they are being shot at.

    Ahh... ok, so your spin is they are all guilty but "not enough evidence"... So much for "innocent until proven guilty"..

    Note some of those marines were not just dismissed or acquitted, but were declared "innocent"....


    I figured you were going there, but wanted to give you the rope to hang yourself.

    I am apalled by the cavalier disregard of the majority of contributors to this thread, who feel that in the interest of "better be safe than sorry", it is permissable to light up an entire bus full of passengers. If that is the continuing opinion of the veterans on this board, then your service was not honorable. This nation is better than that, and I believe our servicemen and women are not served by your attempts to associate with them.

    East thing to say from the tactical vantage point of your momma's couch.




    "our attempts to associate" with them? I signed on the line, served my country in battle..... There is no association, I am them.


    Who are you again?
