    Oh, no surprise that you already convicted them, in your mind. Par for the course.

    If true, well...

    Punishment must be meted out, and prevention measures for future incidents of this sort emplaced.

    If not true, I can see some punishment being dealt to those who made the accusations.

    The guardian isn't liberal.

    If true, I hope they fry... the are a disgrace to the US military and the US as a whole.
    If true, sure. Who doesn't agree with that. Is their any purpose to this thread other than making our military look bad? I could find plenty of atrocities commited by European militaries over, say, the last 100 years.

    Probably not, but that shouldn't prevent anybody from condemning the actions involved.

    Personally, I think it's most likely far less than 10%, at least if we're speaking of this type of action and the US military.

    They are being charged. They wouldn't be charged if there was absolutely no evidence against them.

    Investigators said Gibbs, 25, hatched a plan with another soldier, Jeremy Morlock, 22, and other members of the unit to form a "kill team". While on patrol over the following months they allegedly killed at least three Afghan civilians. According to the charge sheet, the first target was Gul Mudin, who was killed "by means of throwing a fragmentary grenade at him and shooting him with a rifle", when the patrol entered the village of La Mohammed Kalay in January.

    Morlock and another soldier, Andrew Holmes, were on guard at the edge of a poppy field when Mudin emerged and stopped on the other side of a wall from the soldiers. Gibbs allegedly handed Morlock a grenade who armed it and dropped it over the wall next to the Afghan and dived for cover. Holmes, 19, then allegedly fired over the wall.

    Later in the day, Morlock is alleged to have told Holmes that the killing was for fun and threatened him if he told anyone.

    The second victim, Marach Agha, was shot and killed the following month. Gibbs is alleged to have shot him and placed a Kalashnikov next to the body to justify the killing. In May Mullah Adadhdad was killed after being shot and attacked with a grenade.
    These type of people deserve to rot.

    lol...Being charged with a crime doesn't make you guilty - being convicted does.

    Muslim terrorists that attack unarmed civilians because they traditionally lose more than they win when they attack armed soldiers. They are cowards. Those type of people deserve to rot
