rosebud….those are the same people that whine about
‘their” rights. wonder where they think “their” rights came from.

I get really sick of hearing this from people, tell me, what rights of mine did you actually fight for? If the people actually get sick of a government that is abusing the people in power where do you think the military will stand when the government calls them out against the people? Look at the history of military action here in the states on orders of the government and get back to me with an informed answer on that.

Soldiers have a job to do that the government orders them to do. As such they should never deserve this nations respect and commitment to support them in the carrying out of the nation’s wishes. However, you know as well as I do that this kind of action will only spur the enemy to attempt greater atrocities. Even worse it is now propaganda for the enemy to use to call others to their cause that may not have been previously supportive. Because of this they also could cause greater harm to their fellow soldiers by their actions. Further, just cause the enemy doesn’t act in a decent manner doesn’t mean we should sink to their level or we truly become no better then they are and we completely lose any moral high ground.
Unless there is a history of this the soldiers should be reprimanded and possibly taken down a rank at most. If any of them has a history of this then that person should be forced to resign. No real need to take it further then that.
