    US soldiers 'killed Afghan civilians for sport and collected fingers as trophies

    US soldiers 'killed Afghan civilians for sport and collected fingers as trophies' | World news | The Guardian

    Five of the soldiers are charged with murdering three Afghan men who were allegedly killed for sport in separate attacks this year. Seven others are accused of covering up the killings and assaulting a recruit who exposed the murders when he reported other abuses, including members of the unit smoking hashish stolen from civilians.
    If true, I hope they fry... the are a disgrace to the US military and the US as a whole.

    If true, that is horrendous. Hopefully these accusations are all false.

    If this is true I hope for the worst punishment for these men. They are an embarrassment for all those that have served.

    I don't get it. Why morons like this, if the allegations are true, want to kill civilians. When in a warzone there is ample opportunity to legitimately kill people. i have done it and there was nothing fun, thrilling or exciting about it. it is, and should be, something done out of necessity and nothing more.

    If these guys are guilty I hope they fry

    It is from The Guardian though, so the odds are pretty good that it isn't.

    This is all over the internet. Except on regular news media. Guess they're too busy talking about Koran Saturday.

    I agree with you: If true, I hope they fry... the are a disgrace to the US military and the US as a whole.

    That's just sick, but those are still merely accusations and they should be regarded to as such.
    Is there any other source for this except of the Guardian?

    Yes there is

    America pays dearly for Afghan war crimes | Editorials - The News Tribune

    Five is a minuscule fraction of the 4,000 members of the 5th Stryker Brigade, which came home this summer after a year’s deployment in Afghanistan. Atrocities happen in every war, but today’s professional all-volunteer American Army today may be as scrupulous a combat force as this nation has ever fielded.

    There’s also the fact that the probe of the suspicious deaths of three Afghan civilians earlier this year was initiated by the brigade itself against several of its own. In the past – after Vietnam’s My Lai massacre, for example – investigations often happened despite the unit’s commanders, not because of them.

    I have yet to find it anywhere else so far, but I did learn Tom Brady was in a car accident. Damn.

    Well never mind apparently some one else found a source about part of the story.
