    Re: This makes me sick

    This poll is garbage.... it's either end her career and lively hood for a mistake she made three years ago... Or "Whats the big deal" Seriously? this woman NEEDS to be punished this is a disgusting photo and a mockery of the men and woman who have suffered in the US military for years. She needs to be punished maybe lose rank, maybe something else but we should not ignore this nor should we kick her out. Please add more poll options next time the world is not black and white :/

Most of the information I've gotten in the last two years has been through his mother, my aunt. I know he's due back shortly, if he isn't back already. He now lives down in Texas, for those few months a year he's actually been in the United States recently.
    Ahhh, if you understand our colonial history you'd know it was never part of our military history to scalp our enemies. for the most part it was to ensure the natives could in someway prove they had attacked someone (no real guarantee it was actually the enemy) So our military didn't adopt scalping as part of military 'decorum'. No regular militia units scalped dead soldiers, no colonial officers in the militia ordered the enemy dead to be so desecrated. but nice try.

    So racial or spiecal slurs runs in the family? The vets and security men I've helped train didn't say sub-human. The most popular one started with sand. Like a great deal of your claims some salt is required to choke it down.

    Don't need his current. any of the firms he worked through will be fine... (hint google a few of the firms and just name one, seems to be the trend)

    This cousin must be a special in several ways- first a great deal of contract security is outsources to the Former Eastern Bloc countries, and most Americans who have 'years' in the game only come home for less than 30 days a year, not a 'few months'- taxes and all that. the contractors I know get paid by a European office of the security firm, bank it overseas, only come home for a few weeks a year and when done on the contract bleed the money back home in smaller money orders.

    All in all it seems from our colonial times to now Iraq you don't really have a clue what the military does. (and really have not spoken to soldiers- even those in Texas)

    But like many who never served- sure have a high and mighty opinion of what decorum should be, well along a narrow subset when it suits

    Due to social media and the 'viral' affect, it is now common for something deserving of punishment to go high and right into outright separation. I don't know anything about this lady, but she is probably young, immature, and poorly supervised. She deserves punishment. I don't think this needs to be a career ender for her. Her unfortunate mistake was posting this or allowing it to be posted on the internet. Most young people don't understand until it is too late that things on the internet are permanent and that impulsively posting something can come back to haunt them for years. Let's not let your instantaneous (if not justified) 'outrage' destroy the life of someone that volunteered to serve our country, disgusting though her screw up may have been.

    Imagine how far back you would have to go with lewd behavior.
    I don't imagine pissing on dead enemy soldiers caused any harm to our World-Wide image huh,
    let alone how many of our soldiers may have died due to more Muslims joining up.

    And we all know how brilliant "Bring It On" was, a quote that will live in infamy .

    What if she wasn't paying attention to the background and didn't realize it was an American POW?

    Seems more like a joke than a horrible crime.

    So now you're the decider of what kind of American people are, once again.
    I thought we had an agreement on that.
    Back to wearing your faux outrage on your sleeves over Patriotism .

    How very presumptive of you to throw out a blanket statement that Liberals feel that way.
