I can hardly beleive they will be able to get good jobs, respect for their service or enjoy the dignity other members of their unit/organization will garner. No discharge, Honorable or otherwise, could ever wipe this stain of dishonor from these soldiers for doing what they did.

    They did serve to take our minds off the leader of the Haditha Massacre party getting away with it like the rest of his buddies.

    " ...Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, 31, was sentenced instead to a demotion to the rank of private, the lowest rank in the service, a day after he pleaded guilty to a single count of dereliction of duty.
    Wuterich, who could have faced a maximum penalty of three months in confinement, showed no emotion as a military judge pronounced his sentence.
    More serious charges of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault had already been dismissed as part of a plea deal, which cut short Wuterich's court-martial and was decried by a victim's relative as "an insult to all Iraqis." ..."

    Do you understand how the quote system works? If you do you can quote where I said there was no problem about people pissing on dead bodies. If you do not understand then ask one of the moderators.

    Now, can you answer the question as to why you want to endear yourself to terrorists?

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.
    You feel diplomacy works with terrorists? What do you think might be the focus of any diplomatic discussions?

    The only stains are on the dead terrorists.

    While I cannot condone what these soldiers did, I do not think there is a hell of a lot of honor in being a terrorist. From your statement you appear to honor these type of people and their method and mode of behavior.

    This is a good definition of terrorism: "The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims"

    It is just a generalization. The Right. The Left. These are used to describe the general policies or views of that side. It really isn't that big of a deal and people do it all the time. I am a Republican. I don't support pro-life the way that the party does though. People try to lump my in and I make a simple statement that I don't agree, if anything. Saves yourself a LOT of meaningless debate about who is lying and what not.

    I would hire them in a second if I thought that they would be good employees. I understand how to put things in context... like peeing on a dead enemy combatant during a war and just peeing on a random dead person that you find on the street. If people can't start thinking outside of their little constrants and make good analogies based on proper perspective then what is the point of any type of debate?

    Regardless...4 men short on the wall.These men are taking fire...doing the job...and they made a stupid decision....and your only response is a dishonorable discharge. You 'served' and thats your 'solution'?
