    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
    Is it possible for you to leave at least a few threads you touch on topic instead of turning them into a "let's see who's the biggest Islamophobe" competition? Thanks in advance.

    Where exactly did I say they were guilty from this sentence?

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

    @ Maggie
    I am glad you brought this up. War is horrific, hell, and everything else.
    This type of behavior has been seen in all wars and maybe we need to highlight the causes and solutions beyond, ‘fry’ them.
    @ Enigma
    I think you highlighted a major cause; redeploying soldiers over and over and over again will create monsters.

    *I remember reading an article from members of Iraq Veterans Against War talking about how the killing of innocent civilians was encouraged by commanders, it came from the top down.

    What are the odds of a story like this coming to light at this particular time? The building of the Mosque, the nut wanting to burn Qurans, Afghans protesting and burning American flags, Imam Rauf saying we must build the mosque there for national security against radical Islam. This seems like it could be pour gas on the fire.

    Am I turning into some kind of a conspiracy theory nut?

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

    Check out the OP. He is on topic.

    It is true, for all those doubters on the right.

    Stryker brigade soldiers allegedly kept 'trophy' body parts | McClatchy

    New details in Army charge sheets released Wednesday paint a disturbing picture of depravity, deceit and savage internal discipline involving at least 12 Stryker soldiers from Joint Base Lewis-Mc-Chord in Washington state during their recent deployment to Afghanistan.
    and

    Local News | Stryker soldiers allegedly took corpses' fingers | Seattle Times Newspaper

    The army is releasing information now that the story has broken. I would wager they have been trying to keep it under raps for as long as possible (I would if I were them), and will not release much information as it could inflame the situation and hurt a possible conviction.

    So, is this going to make you less likely to lump all Moslems together and call them terrorists? Looking forward to your answer.

    Indeed.

    By the way laila, why did you all bomb our buildings and decapitate people whil stoning homosexuals. I thought you all were a religion of peace.

    You know, since we're just going with broad strokes now it seems I figure we may as well go full out.

    and there is the kicker, just as with domestic disturbance calls here. If the "victim" refuses to press charges there is nothing the cops can do.
