    Please excuse me. I'm just an ordinary American citizen. How, please tell me, can we expect our soldiers to tell the difference between the enemy and a civilian all the time. It's absolutely ridiculous to accuse a soldier in a war zone of murder! I'm so horified at this!

    I think it's ridiculous to charge soldiers with murder when you can't trust anyone in that country I think we should pull out and bomb the hell out of them and just wipe them out 100%

    Don't you two have some gold to mine on WOW or somthing? Regardless of these rants, the matter to the fact here is did these young troops do anything out of the ordinary? NO, not really. WAR is frowned upon and the acts of WAR are frowned upon which is why if you arent in a uniform and in the WAR... YOU , every last one of you that are not in the WAR need to stay away from it and out of it. Please, WAR is not pretty, it is not fun it is not glamorous and it causes those in it to be animalistic and to do things out of nature. Get over it, it has always been this way, regarless of what race, what faith and what cause.. WAR ir WAR. All of you idiots who think that a WAR can take place in some sort of pinky up tea cup manner are wrong.
    And for these idiots above who are clearly attempting to distrack you all from the real point (which worked) Be happy that the American people care so much. If it weren't for our own people getting so envolved you would have nothing. Keep pushing and maybe some of us older Joe's will show you what real WAR is all about.

    Career Officer, you sound like one, ready to sell out a combat fatigued soldier to be a yes man for the higher echelons.
    Yes, combat fatigue, endless firefights, sleepless nights, losing friends.......
    I have my CIB, do you? Are you a combat arms Career Officer or just chairbourne quaterbacking?
    These kid's are tired. Initially, the thought of military service and thoughts of being a war hero were appealing but it fades when the dying starts. I respect any person that ever lived through a firefight, they have a different perspective of things. I ,myself , lived in a hole in Iraq for over a month. I condem no man for his actions in a combat situation. A fraction of a second has life altering potetntial.

    Your Soldiers are not falling apart and they know exactly what they signed up for. These five men are guilty for what THEY decided to do. This has nothing to do with President Bush or President Obama it's as simple as what it seems. This type of behavior is unfortunate and with 15 years of service to our nation I can tell you that it is and never will be tolderated. I've been to Afghanistan for a total of 35 months in the last five years and the citizens that have chosen to serve their country know exactly why they are there and what is appropriate. Killing innocent people is not encouraged by anyone, but when big bombs are dropped in the middle of the night when supporting your Marines and Soldiers it happens. Believe it or not it bothers us just as much as some of you especially when you have worked so hard to mitigate and innocent people are wounded or killed. How about you try and blame the Taliban for putting their people at risk by bringing the fight to their front door step knowing we are coming. Our job is to find and eliminate them. Crack house burns down with crack heads kids in it do you blame the fireman or police?

    I don't understand what people don't get. Its common sense. You call these people insurgents, there just residence of THEIR country defending themselves. Imagine if soldiers from a foreign country were here in the States fighting a war that they thought was justified, you better believe that every able bodied man here would take to arms. I live in Dallas and you would probably hear on the news stations in that foreign country that insurgents from Texas were giving them hell. Think about it don't be stupid 'cause I am tired of everybody's stupid opinions about war when they either have no clue or are just regurgitating something they heard on the news! Stick to watching reality television and stuffing your faces with fast food and wondering when Halo Reach is coming out!

    We live in an analog world. Nothing will ever be a discreet 0 or 1. The men that are ordered to do a job as a soldier will also have their own decisions to make as they are in the field. They are trained to the best degree possible to handle as many situations as possible, however, because everyone is different, no outcome of any situation can be foretold for each individual. There are intelligent human beings all over the world that kill for no reason. Here in America, we read about it all the time. Job loss, family problems, whatever.. There are certain degress of stress or difficult situations that will cause a man, or woman, to kill. Some of these are driven by their duties, and some are just personal acts of insanity. It is up to military justice to decide which of those it was that caused the death of the individuals at hand. I do know this though, we are primitive race of beings.. The technology that exists today is sufficient enough for us not to invade a country for it's natural resources, and the only thing that I can think of as a good enough reason to invade another country, is if it threatens us or attacks our land. Other than that, we have no right to invade another country or have a military presence there.

That is bull, the are a world away and should respect life. They are blaming a lack of supervision for their crimes so that means they committed the crimes and trying to point blame to someone else.

    A child born with one eye




    Due to the use of massive amount of uranium munitions used by the US forces in the initial bombing and subsequently, massive amount of congenital deformities occur all over Afghanistan. The rate of various cancers has gone up significantly. Leukemia and esophageal cancers are very high among children. According to doctors at maternity and children hospitals in Kabul, the rate of various congenital deformities have increased by many folds since the US invasion. In fact, the magnitude of man made isotopes was established by the Uranium Medical Research Center after their investigators made to trips to Afghanistan and collected urine and soil samples. They established that the rate of man made isotopes was gone up 2000 times in some subjects located near the bombed areas.

    Since uranium used in the weapons have a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the US forces ensured that generations of Afghans suffer from cancers and deformities. This is certainly not development. In fact, it is the biggest crime ever committed by anyone in the history of humanity.

    to all of you Soldier Hating idiots! We are not uneducated illiterate dumbsh!t's like you state. Do you know that you have to have a better education to get into the military than most colleges? Until recent changes You HAD TO HAVE A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA....YOU STILL HAVE TO HAVE ATLEAST A GED! so to say they are illiterate is to say that our nations education system isn't up to par (which i can agree it needs improved but we are not illiterate!).....Most military member are currently enrolled into college while enlisted....They are heroic!, there are always exceptions. These men that made a decision to kill this family is an exception. You get the news of all the collateral damage...and the wrong doing of the military. Did you here about the year I was there when we built 14 schools, provided electirc to over 4,000 iraqi civlians? Destroyed over 25 tons of weapons and ammunition that was captured from insurgents and caches? Had backing of over 12 small communities in our sector that helped with the capture of two of the most wanted men in Iraq at the time? I bet you didn't because the news does not want the good to come out of iraq or afghanistan! You Left wing F's don't want to see the good that is being done to help the people of a third world country. Yes there has been war there for over 2000 years, No i did not fully agree with the invasions. It was my duty, I joined, I served honorably. And to you idiots that think the military is such a bad thing. Proven fact, Military Veterans live longer than that of you disgraceful idiots that B!tc# about everything we do!

    Joining the military is a very dumb decision. In basic training, they pump you full of BS vaccines that will cause major problems for you in the future. Less than a quarter of the people you are in basic with, retire with lifelong medical benefits, while the other ones get cancer from the injections and have to deal with it on their own. The whole point of the military is to turn you into a TOOL, to USE YOU and then throw you away. You think these guys did this on their own? No doubt they had the ok from their red neck supervisor. Most military are stupid, with no REAL morals and values. They are dumb drunks, and they will bang anything that moves. America does not win wars, we cover them up.

    This isn't about serving or not. I'm an active duty infantryman who's been deployed, and there isn't any excuse even remotely justifiable for this sort of action. I've known a few bad apples that have done this sort of thing, and it had nothing to do with combat stress; most of them were just bad people who finally had an opportunity to do bad things. These people should be punished to the fullest extent. The sad thing is most of them aren't reprimanded; most either get out, get kicked out, or end up serving the remainder of their careers in S shops.

      Whoa-a-a there, Elena. Surely you are not saying that, LONG before the white man showed up, ALL of the Indians were murderers satisfying their killing instincts just because SOME Indian tribes routinely slaughtered other Indian villages, are you? Certainly, murder is murder no matter where it takes place and neither repeated combat and repeated tours of duty, nor anything the "other" side is doing in any way justifies these alleged crimes. But you and "Dan In Lafayette" have slipped way off into the deep end here.

      To paint ALL of our military with your naively absurd slander is just that. Let's not forget that it is the same military you slander that brought all of this to light and is prosecuting these alleged criminals.

      And, by the way, are you thinking there are no native Americans in the military?

    Some in the military have always shown sadistic tendencies and here is just such an example. In my opinion, it is yet another reason we should get out of Afghanistan as soon as humanly possible. These actions will service as recruiting tools for terrorists and more innocent people will die because of the brutality of these disgraceful Americans.

      And you should be proud that, according to you, we are the only country to charge our soldiers with criminal murder.

      Besides, we are not the only country to charge our soldiers with murder. Israel comes to mind. And we do not charge all soldiers with murder: just the ones where there is sufficient evidence of murder.

    To American Rulers and the Misinformed American People.
    You tested all your might i.e. military, political and economic for the past nine years to maintain your occupation over the Afghan Islamic and independent country but you achieved nothing except a dashing defeat at the hands of the sagacious Afghan Muajhideen. Though your general worked out strategies (after strategies) and committed military surge, but still your soldiers are captured alive but your government is not ready to agree to an exchange of prisoners as in the case of the Bobragdal nor they are concerned about him as a US citizen. Even they try to perish them instead of adhering to the recognized way of exchange of prisoners as what they did in Logar with your two prisoners. Our Mujahideen constantly shoot down your advanced military and reconnaissance aircrafts and destroy your military hardware. With the passage of each day, the number of your soldiers’ dead bodies are ascending but your rulers instead of admitting their wrong policies, and seeking a rational exit, want to try the hackneyed and failed process once more as an effort to compensate for their defeats and distract your attention and that of the public of the world from their debacles. These foiled process include the formation of the tribal militias, holding the so-called consultative Jirga, usage of the words radicals and moderates for Mujahideen, holding fruitless conferences, launching black propaganda campaign against Mujahideen with the help of affiliated stooge media, giving the helms of affairs to some most hated, corruption-infested and criminal figures time and again. They guess, in this lies the solution of the problem. But with the help of Allah, (SwT) and the good Jihadic planning of Mujahideen, these ventures failed like their other military endeavors. The Afghans have still further patience to defend their country. They have added new experiences of warfare to theirs after nine-year long confrontation with your soldiers. What we want to convey to you through this message is that withdraw your soldiers from our country unconditionally and as soon as possible. This is in your interest and in the interest of your people and the best option for regional stability.

    After nine years of show of muscles by you and your global military coalition, it has become clear for all the world that the policy of might and coercion has no effect on the Afghans. The subjugation of this free people as per your envisaged plans is impossible. Still if you want to make the “impossible” possible by extending your stay in Afghanistan, then, as its price, be ready to lose the sovereignty of your vast empire. You should know that your rulers have continuously told you lies since the beginning of the aggression on Afghanistan until this very day. They have wasted hundreds of billion of dollars of your tax money in the shape of financial expenditures and your man power in Afghanistan and have still been wasting them. You shall be witness to another economic melt-down. You should use your parliamentary pressures and street power to prevent your rulers from pushing you into the pit of perdition and destruction at world level. Therefore, they should abandon their headlong stubborn policy. Otherwise, the Americans will themselves face humiliation and disgrace before any one else does that.

That time i did not know that we (USSR) actually were occupier , we killed Hungarians in 1956 , we killed Czechoslovakians during 1968 , we killed polish people , Bulgarians were like part of Russia ... So , they hated us ...
    Now i live in US and most US people does not understand why so many countries hate us , even our neighbors , Mexicans , another latino people ... Problem is US policy . For most of us another peoples life is nothing , and even they should thank to us if they are getting killed by US drones , bombs , air strikes ... How we were sad when yesterday we saw fire in San Bruno California .It was disaster . Can you imagine , all Baghdad were burning like that under our air strikes and still we blame Iraqis if they dare to kill any US soldier .

        regardless as to who thinks this is right or wrong.. when they are over there, they are protecting our country, and should have some kind of morals when they are representing the USA.. common sense tell you that when there are civilians and kids, families, innocent people... you dont kill or torture them for your own satisfaction. its just plain sick. they are sick in the head. but they apparantly went into the marines to shoot someone. to kill them. they cant do that over here... without getting caught and put in prison.. so why not go to a war zone? where they can try to cover it up... that makes them no better than the sick minded people over there. whats the difference in seeing the videos with beheadings of the american people... or beheading an afgan? there is no difference,,, an innocent life is taken. that just goes to show that just because they are a different culture, religion, and country... they dont deserve to be treated that way. beaten, murdered, and body parts taken as trophies? but theres a justification to that? no. these select men arenot soldiers... their posers in a us combat suit. and they are sick in the head, and they deserve to be put in jail for the rest of their lives. in my opinion, i dont support the WAR... but i do support our troops... having friends that are serving our country... in the best interests of our country. to protect our country... and i am very thankful for our troops.. but these men give the rest of the level headed honorable men and women serving our country.. a bad name. there is no double standard, and there is no resppect all or none... there is no answer or justification to there bombings and all that... because there are people over there that do deserve to be killed that may endanger our HONORABLE troops... but thats okay for a select few or our men to be malicious cowards and kill innocent civilians? i mean if none of them are innocent... why didnt we save the time and money and bomb the place... and be done with it?? but the government didnt do that... so when we send our men over there... they do what they have to do, but when its killing innocent people and kids for fun... there is no justification for that. they are just like the thugs in our cities that carry guns unlawfully and shoot innocent people over here in our own country. and as bad as the terrorists over there. matters fact they are on the same level to me. and deserve karma to the fullest.

    • Career Military Officer

      Heres the deal, it's an all volunteer force. No one is conscripted anymore. When you sign up for military service, I think it is reasonable to expect to have to go fight in wars. Knowing that, it is also important to understand that every soldier's training includes comprehensive instruction on the Geneva Conventions, and the Law of Armed Conflict. EVERY soldier understands those rules implicitly. When they choose to ignore those rules, they are choosing to disregard international as well as military law, and thus make a conscious decision to potentially face a court martial. Just like every other industry out there, we occasionally have some bad apples in the military. And ever once in a while we have good people in really bad situations, but it is more common that soldiers simply ignore laws and regulations when they believe no one is looking. Let me be clear, aberrations like that are the extreme exception and not the rule, but receive disproportionate media attention when they happen. 99.9% of our brave fighting force gets the mission accomplished without having to disobey established rules or break international laws. So to counter what you are implying about "soldiers not signing up for this," I firmly disagree with you. Our soldiers are well informed when they sign up, and a majority of them signed up within the last 3 years, which would have made it impossible for them not to know what they were getting into. On the contrary, the brave men and women of our fighting forces step up to the impossible challenge without fear or hesitation, knowing fully that the oath they take could mean sacrificing their life for their country. It is a solemn oath we are ALL required to take when we join.

        Seems to me the Geneva Convention and general rules of combat make mention of UNIFORMS. If you are not in uniform and involved in combat you should be shot on sight. With none of these cowards in uniform how does any real soldier know who just planted the IED or shot at them and then went home and hid behind his wife and kids. We're dealing with a society and "religion" whose whole history has been built on lies and deceit. As an old Arab saying goes "you can rent our loyalty but not buy it.
        With the ridiculous rules of engagement-as stupid as VN-is it any wonder a few troops go off the deep end.
        The real criminals are the Ivy League State Dept officials who are rewsponsible for all of this. These arrogant cowards should be made to serve 1-2 tours of duty in a war zone before they can even get thier jobs.

    • ArmyWife

      Comments like this really irk me because this war has been going on for years now. These guys are young so it is pretty reasonable to guess they signed up after the war started. Unless the lived in a vacuum, they knew exactly what they were getting in to. Outside of living where there is no news, being totally ignorant, or being too retarded to figure out that everyone in the Army is deploying to Iraq or Afghanistan so if a person enlists they can plan on deploying, well then they knew exactly what they were getting in to. I was an Army wife for 16 years; married to a soldier who served 2 extended tours and was devestated when they threw him out like garbage due to PTSD. We were in before the war so if anyone can say they didn't know what they were getting in to it is the people who served long before 911, but you would never hear my husband say that. Do you think these boys thought they were in line for cub scouts? Really? What about basic training when they learned how to kill? Do you suppose they clued in then what they were in for? Anyone who can operate a television or turn a computer knows what is happening in the war. I have no sympathy for them. Their actions have no doubt put other soldiers serving honorably in far greater danger. I hope they rot in prison.

      sorry no matter how honorable the reason this is the effects of the enviroment of violence being the norm of the day. this is why we must not let a feeling of retaliation in the form of war be our first response in these situations I agree with the action we took in afgan but not Iran we never should have split our forces all over a feeling which now ever one knows to be the lie it was. this is the result of rushed judgment and not listening to the facts and not the feeling. there was so much proof about Iran I was in shock at the unawareness of the voting public, my entire view of things of so different today ,I can only dream of what could have been accomplish in afgan if we had focus on the facts

      well theres factors about this incident, media blows everything up and exaggerates everything over there to an extent, when i was over there i WILL admit, i alienated MANY reporters and spoke not a word to them, the same went for guys in my platoon...and the reporters knew why, because they make US look bad...FACT...

      FACT...the american civilian world and populous can NOT and DO NOT understand really what goes on over there, the civilian world believes what they are told far worse than those serveing across seas right now

      FACT/OPINION... in rural places like that in afghanistan, we are the infidel no matter if we help them or not, were not muslim so we dont matter, you the reader of this right now to those people under the influnce of the talibans "cave man rhetoric" you are nothing more than a ticket to heaven, accept it

      FACT...the taliban will be eradicated same as al qaeda as there numbers, abilities and strength diminsihes and will be nothing more than a faint memory of a empty promise for what they told and made everyone believe out there

      this is what war does it will twist the mind of good people to become the flesh driven creatures we are , what they did was wrong but this is the downside of ones enviroment and it applies also to that which is of fear of ones life on a regular bases aka ptsd it's in war in the cities and in the hate filled mid west and south from those who choose to take away the joy of life due to a feeling, dysfunctional as it is cause and effect.

      p53 you are so ignorant you are hilarious. On to other things . . . It is funny how the left-wingers who do not have the cohonies to defend their country are the first to blast those who do. I guess the next thing will be accusing soldiers defending themselves of racial profiling. If they shot innocents for the purpose of a good-time then yes there is a problem otherwise there is not.
      Think about this you can't fix stupid no matter the party or the color. Stupid is just that and it transcends all races.
