Support the Troops

From CNN.com

FORT CAMPBELL, Kentucky (CNN) -- The commander of the 101st Airborne Division has referred murder charges against four U.S. soldiers accused of raping and killing a 14-year-old girl and slaying her sister and their parents in Mahmoudiya, south of Baghdad, according to military officials.

Maj. Gen. Thomas Turner made the decision after reviewing the Article 32 report of investigation and receiving recommendations from the investigating officer, the appointing authority who directed the investigation and his staff judge advocate, according to a written statement.

Two of the men face capital charges, and would be eligible for the death penalty, if convicted. The other two could face life in prison without parole.

So are you trying to say the military teaches these attributes?

Because I've had 3 friends and a father in the military and none of them have raped or murdered anyone.

You're right. I guess it just proves that all of the troops are evil and should no longer be supported. Let's go insurgency!!

150,000 troops in Iraq. A handful get brought up on charges for rape and murder. I guess that means they all should.

I don't think anyone is surprised that with the hundreds of thousands of troops that have been deployed that we've found 4 that may be bad apples. I should remind people, although people like to ignore it, that they are "accused".

I wish the crime rate around here was that low.

If you had put just a tiny bit of discussion with your cut-and-paste we'd have a clue what point you were trying to get across.
