    They're in the vast minority of those who choose to serve. It is important to recognize that these sorts of people are exceptions to the military norm, not the norm itself.

    And are now being punished for it. For every soldier like this who dishonors the uniform, there are thousands who do it justice and lay their lives on the line on a daily basis. That something like this is incredibly newsworthy is itself an indication that behavior like this is far from the norm.

    So, killing them wasn't disrespecting them?

    The fact that they were murdered makes them victims of war.

    Kill team pictures are here (Not for those with a weak stomach - consider yourself warned).

    These soldiers disgraced their uniforms, and America too.

    Finally, your argument was "prove it". I just proved it. You could have also proven it for yourself, if partisan hackery was not your motive. The links are all over the internet, and easy to find.
    Yeah, there are links all over the net.

    I found this one just this evening.

    Yon: Rolling Stone’s report on “kill teams” is BS « Hot Air

    Michael Yon's credibility as a journalist is purdy much untouchable.

    IIRC Rolling Stone never said the motorcycle kill was not legitimate. The problem was with the sharing and distribution of the combat footage.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Just going by what Yon reported. Maybe you should email him and tell him that he's full of ****?

    It was a blog entry not an actual story. Yon is a professional but his blogs are just opinion, not actual reporting. And taking out the motorcycle kill out of the picture hardly makes the whole story "bull****." That's my personal opinion. I really don't care enough to e-mail anyone.
