    Yep, we should make a law that limits the freedom of speech from disagreeing with Marines pissing on dead bodies.

    Look, I think non-judicial punishment is fine and should be at the descretion of the Marin Corp, but calling free speech aiding and abetting the enemy is just plain stupid.

    You were in the military?
    Yeah, I got a dishonorable discharge.
    What for?
    Dishonorable discharge.

    Wait a minute. Are you sure you know what free speech means? Free speech means one gets to say what they want, not that people must like it or refrain from criticism. Just because speech is free does not put it beyond reproach.

    I'm free to say "the taliban is right and the US deserves what it gets and should get more!" But I think we must agree that it would, in fact, be abetting the enemy.

    I'm not saying the speech in this thead is such, I'm just noting that your point is off.

    What for. How about committing a crime and creating an international incident.

    You sound pissed off....

    But how is this aiding and abetting the enemy and which enemy are you talking about anyway; the people who want string these guys up or the enemy that these soldiers had been fighting?

    Did you read in context what I was responding to? American had said that those complaining about the Marines "are basically aiding and abetting the enemy."

    In that context, that is not aiding and abetting the enemy just because people do not like Marine's pissing on dead bodies. Even calling for their discharge (While I don't agree with it and think it's extreme) is still NOT aiding and abetting the enemy.

    Stop criticizing what he said... it's free speech. Don't you know it's wrong to opine on free speech.

    He broke the rules, period. He violated the same law that these guys are accused of violating and I'm not talking about coming out of the closet on Oprah.

    You want to yell. Oh the injustice, but they committed a crime and caused an international incident.
    Not injustice, but rather "double standard".
