    I clearly just don't understand what ******* would do this to begin with, much less film it and release it to the world. I hope that the CMC smokes these guys to extent that he can do so, because frankly - the entire country is gravely injured with this kind of nonsense.

    There has been some discussion on here about teenagers not having fully developed brains. I don't know how old these guys are but their brains are apparently not fully developed!

    Unfortunately, these guys do not understand how difficult it has made the jobs of the other service members over there. They cannot do enought guard duty, peel enough potatos, etc. to make take the burden they created off their fellow Marines.

    If I were these idiots, I don't believe that I would count on getting the company grade punishment that you are describing- and they shouldn't. This is a big deal.

    So do quite a few others in their chain of command. A see a rather large number of individuals besides these idiots having to explain these horrendous actions, and how they let this situation happen under their watch.

    These idiots will be going to jail. Their chain of command will be joining the unemployment lines....

    For sure, but I'm curious how high up actual charges are going to go. I'm assuming (emphasis on assuming) that all of their NCOs (squad leader, platoon sergeant, etc) are going to feel some pain, as well as their platoon commander and company commander.
    Is this something that would go up to Batt commander plus?

    I'm legit curious, we sorta kinda not really covered this stuff in Law class but it seemed like in our case studies (Haditha, Abu Gharaib, etc) officers and SNCOs only really entered the (legal) equation if it was proved that they were there and condoned the action, covered it up, or fostered a command environment where it was considered acceptable.

    They will be prosecuted and rightfully so. It was a stupid thing to do and especially in the INTERNET age. Just because someone is not signatory to the Geneva Convention doesn't make it right for their side. Haven't seen a lot of these spots:

    Too bad Allen West doesn't take his own advice.

    Great message, LTC(R) West!!! I'm glad he put this situation in some real perspective. I remember when West Point taught me that war is tough, so being immoral and unethical is perfectly fine.




    Wait, what's that you say? That's not the professional military ethic? Oooooh.

    With all due respect to an elected official (who is not in the chain of command, thankfully), that commentary should be a complete embarrassment to his entire constituency.
