    I would give them 60/60 + RiR. 60 days of half pay, 60 days extra duty, reduction in rank. You don't do stupid **** like this, and when you get caught, you get your dick slammed in the dirt.

    You should read the whole thread and not cherry pick the things you think you can argue with me on., That wasn't btw my friend, his argument. Look at what haymarket and I are saying, sounds just like what you are saying.

    That sums up my views on this issue.

    Since SecDef had to personally call Karzai and apologize, I think these soldiers know that their days in the military are number.

    Actually, that was his argument. You just did not understand it.

    From the Halls of Montezuma,
    To the shores of Tripoli;
    We piss on our nations enemies
    In the air, on land, and sea;
    First to fight for right and freedom
    And to keep our skivvies clean:
    Do not mess around with America
    Or you'll become our latrine.

    I havenít looked through the 67 pages but my take is, until you have been trained to the level that US Marines and other nationís combat troops, it is very difficult to judge their actions. For a soldier to be able to carry out the 'kill' he has to be so desensitized towards his enemy to such an extent that they are seen, as not even being human. The alternative would be a considerable amount of soldiers not carrying out their job. This is not something I expect many to really understand.

    Actually, this explains quite a bit for me. Thank you.

    Good ole human psychology, its a sucky thing sometimes, but if people have to get in that mindset, then it is what it is, even if its not good objectively

    Seems weird, eh? On one side, people kill, slaughter, maim and torture, which is all nice and fine and part of the job, but people suddenly make a fuss about them pissing on dead bodies which don't feel anything anymore either. It's really a weird world.
