    It is a shame and disgraceful to see these men to dishonor the uniform that so many take seriously.

    The Afghan people have nothing to do with the occupation, most of them don't have any access to information, if you don't want to say anymore that's fine I'm not trying to drag you out but this needed to be said.

    To be frank no. He should have been judged after local law and not the corrupt US military justice system. Hence it is a whitewash.

    after local law???? that's a ****ing laugh. they'd have probably let him go, since he didn't kill a camel or wasn't a homosexual.

    I see some people here who believe that capital punishment is barbaric, that seem to want this guy to be capitally punished.

    I'm fine with putting this guy on the firing line myself. Time to start making examples.

    He would have been executed for murder. THAT would be justice for what he did.

    Capital punishment is barbaric, but I personally believe if the person is 10000% guilty as this guy was (he admitted it), then it would be the correct punishment. The problem with capital punishment is that the legal system is not perfect. In this case there was no doubt what so ever it seems, hence capital punishment would have been the appropriate solution.

    On top of that, we can not go away from the fact that what the US (and others for that matter) are doing, is impose their laws on situation in other countries. This scum murdered people in another country and should suffer the appropriate punishment in said country. Instead he will live 24 years (less probably) for doing murders he admitting doing. And that pisses me off.

    .
    In most cases there usually isn't any doubt. That crazy ass kid in Arizona should be dead by now in a perfect world, but people still don't want him to be capitally punished because "the system isn't perfect"(as if any system is) despite the fact there were several witnesses, and there is no doubt he was responsible.
