    So did the actions of Choi, Watada and Manning. However, I think you wouldn't scream for a harsh punishment in those cases.

    I'm not screaming for harsh punishment in this either. Non-judicial punishment is fine at the descretion of the Marine Corp. I don't beleive these Marines should be dishonorably discharged.

    Choi (even though I disagree with kicking gays out of the military) broke the rules and discharge was the only choice.

    Watada, I think a discharge was appropriate. I can't remember what kind of dischargehe got, but I think he deserved a general discharge, not honorable.

    Manning is another story. I held a TS/SCI clearance while I was in the military. I feel very strongly in maintaining that. I believe a dishonorable discharge is in order with jail time attached.

    We are in agreement.

    Your amazingly lame and defensive use of the concept of free speech. As if he's not allowed to criticize what anyone says on the matter, because it's free speech... hahaha. I mean, c'mon, that's very ridiculous.

    "Bradley Manning, the US soldier charged in the biggest leak of classified information in American history, will face a court-martial.

    Military district of Washington commander Major General Michael Linnington referred all 22 charges against Manning to a general court martial on Friday, the US Army said in a statement."

    "Prosecutors have said that rather than seeking the death penalty, they will push for life in prison if Manning is convicted."

    So much for those that thought Manning was going to get off easy.

    It is up for the military to decide, just as it will be for them to decide the fate of the marines who dishonored their fellow Marines by pissing on corpses. I suspect the penalty will be the harshest for the non-commissioned officer that took part in desecrating the dead.
