I am not saying it is not horrific, I am just saying that US service members are not the only ones to do it. The big difference is that the US government investigates and punishes them for it
I guess that makes it ok then? ... Maybe the US army could increase rapes and murders and with it increase troop moral? ... Perhaps every Saturday each troop could go out and find a random Iraqi to kill, like a free pass to murder? ... Fun Fun Fun...
