Given that the military takes otherwise peaceful individuals, turns them into killers and then demonizes a population it is no wonder some atrocities will happen. The military itself is responsible for the deaths of the 16 Afghan villagers.

Has the military ever executed a soldier for killing a bunch of civilians? Will it take 17 yrs and multiple appeals before it happens? I know civilians are executed for killing a few store clerks. Not sure if soldiers are given the same punishment?

Do you think Nidal Malik Hasan will suffer the same fate? Not a chance. The court can't even get him to shave for trial.

Uh huh. And just how is the U.S. Army doing with the trial of Major Nidal Hasan for that "workplace violence" incident at Ft Hood?
