    Please, tell me, where/how does she even allude to wanting to "demonize the US military."

    Also, you aren't so balanced yourself.

    When you consider the fact that we've been there for around 10 years now, hundreds of thousands of troops have rotated in & out there in that period there havent been that many of these type of incidents. There are nutcases at every level of society and that includes the military. IMO our military has some of the finer people in the world and I wouldnt let a small number of headcases that slipped thru, paint the picture for the whole group. If these guys are found guilty they will pay for there crimes and rightfully should. In this incident that may be the case, but they do deserve there day in court.

    Lets put this in perspective though and also remember, you can better believe the Taliban have there operatives hidden within the Afghan government with sympathizers in the press who are looking for any little thing the military does wrong so they can make us look as bad as possible (not that I think this is the case this time) so Afghan public opinion will turn against us. We also need to remember that the Taliban have killed many more civilians than our guys ever will.

    I can't imagine why the did that... they were just in a war zone, killing people, and were desensitized?

    Minor correction: it's not a girl. "...body of Gul Mudin, the son of a farmer..."

    How wrong. However, the actions of rogue soldiers who violate military rules does not reflect upon the US military as a whole. These murderers will be tried and hopefully justice will be served. The US military is an extremely strict organization and does not condone these actions. The military is seeking punishment for the criminals and for justice to prevail in this horrible atrocity.

    Wouldn't blame Afghans if they got violent against the Soldiers. Some of the photos are just horrible and just imagine ... there was 4,000 found.

    I'm not even going to post the photos. It should be in the link.
    The 'Kill Team' Images: US Army Apologizes for Horrific Photos from Afghanistan - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

    I don't know which bit is the worst part. The idea the photos were attempted to be hidden by the US or the apology only came when they got leaked

    Edit: Please merge if a thread has already been made on it. Couldn't see it on BN
