    I agree the story needs to get out.. it sounds like some people tried to do the right thing and report what was happen, but it wasn't properly investigated.

    Most of us are talking about the whole incident in general, not just the body part thing. Regardless, I recall Oscar saying that keeping body parts is against regs.
    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.

    All the more reason he should be sentenced to death. Do you support that?

    It's not irrelevant... Read the Rolling Stone article. Taking photos of human causalities and trading them is forbidden by the US military.

    If that were the case, you would restrict your posts to the thread actually about the killings, vice the thread about the taking of body parts as trophies.

    I recall Oscar saying that keeping body parts is against regs.
    Granted, I've been out of the service for 10 years, but I don't recall that regulation. Even if such a regulation exists, it probably isn't a court martial offense.

    Let's discuss it in the thread concerning the actual killings. How's that sound? Rather than further demonizing American service members.

    and some still wonder why we have the reputation overseas as the Ugly American?

    thank you for illustrating the concept perfectly.

    Oh? Care to cite the regulation that forbids such actions?

    How much you wanna bet that you can't?

    AND. regulation forbidding such actions, or not, I'll bet that it's not a courts martial offense.
