    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.
    I said where I read it... it's in the Rolling Stone article...

    You really think it's completely legal for soldiers to take photos of dead bodies in the military and trade them??

    Where did I demonsize service members? Some of my family members are service members, so you're being a total hack and making assumptions.

    I'm not saying that is it. I'm challenging you to show me where it isn't. Can you?

    If you can, I'll recant. If you can't, then well...you know...

    thank you for illustrating the concept perfectly.
    Some people think that having these conversations is taboo... What should we do instead, cover up these crimes for people like apdst?

    **** that! The rest of us want to clean house and make sure the armed forces act with honor, not like mini Qaddafi loyalists...

    And, you're taking advantage of it, to do the same.

    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.
    This is what I could find: Army General Order 1B (I'm not sure of the Corps has similar regs, but it's likely)

    Edit: It is a CentCom DOD directive, not just Army.

    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.

    I am trying to understand and discuss what happened to these kids and how it happened... read my OP. I was asking for opinions, not making accusations.
