    The fact is this situation is not an isolated incident throughout war in any era. Indeed this was very mild compared to some of the atrocities committed by any side in any war.
    And none of it should be condoned.

    "Any acts which treat the dead, enemy or friendly, with disrespect are utterly unacceptable and do not represent the standards we expect of coalition forces," Bradshaw said in a video statement. He said he was speaking on behalf of Allen, who is out of the country.

    "It is difficult to say what long-term impacts this might have, and I would hesitate to get into speculation, but obviously any sort of footage, any sort of activity of this kind that is grossly against all the moral values that the coalition forces are standing for are very much working against our cause and against everything that we are standing for and that we are here for," said Brig. Gen. Carsten Jacobson, a NATO ISAF spokesman. "We will find the ones who are responsible and hold them accountable."

    yes, and in this thread, i say a reduction in rank and pay and an article 15 is appropriate. What do you think should happen to these Marines? Jail?

    It is not condoned. Nevertheless, your position is that is brings shame upon their organization and the US Military as a whole. I disagree The military will take care of these soldiers within the parameters set forth within the UCMJ.

    It's no surprise that the military is going to come out and do damage control. While I don't condone what they have done I understand how you can build up strong feelings against a group of terrorist that have set up a ied that killed your battle buddies or sniped them. Once you get them, it is kind of anti-climatic, it doesn't bring back the buddies that have died it just prevents them for killing more of your buddies.

    I honestly feel like we should never have had press, and cameras in a war zone in the first place. War is hell and if you don't want to see this type of stuff happen, do a better job on the diplomacy front so we don't have to fight.

    The "dishonorable" behavior will carry a lifetime of shame and consequences on it's own. To further impact these lives for this act is onerous and unduly punitive.

    I won't be part of the decision making process on their punishment. However, I was asked my opinion. Actions have consequences.

    Were these Marines drafted, or did they join voluntarily?
