I feel sorry for the soldiers. They are ordered to occupy a country where a guy walking down the street behind them could blow himself up and kill them. Any parked car they drive by means possible death. Their government has been feeding them so much bullshit about an Iraq connection to 9-11, they look at Iraqis as subhumans. They have been just as brutalized by Bush as the Iraqis have. These guys just snapped. A mass psychotic episode brought about by the stress of being part of an impossible war.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Feel sorry for them right-up until they are convicted or released. If they are released, continue feeling sorry for them. If they are convicted, then they are criminals. We have civilians in the USA who intentionally and willfully murder groups of people now and then, too.

If they're guilty, jail them and throw away the key or execute them.

Huh? You are comparing run of the mill criminals on the streets in any U.S. cities to a trained U.S. soldier. Last I read, they are professionals, and the training costs tax payers between $50,000 to $100,000 per soldier depending on the level of combat readiness.

You are damn right I expect some professionalism out of them.

Of course you expect professionalism out of them and in a far higher proportion then the general population, you get it. here's a thought experiment for you: Imagine giving automatic weapons and explosives to 125,000, 18-30 year-old males randomly about the country. How many justifiable deaths would come about as a result.

Imagine handing out weapons and explosives randomly to Republicans, and all the unjustifiable deaths would come about as a result. Wait a minute, you don't have to imagine it, it's called "Iraq".
