If this is true, it will be more damaging than anything yet. It will destory any creditability or good deeds done by us yet. The Arabs are growing more displeased with us everyday, and if we don't do the right thing here they will really start hating us. That turns Iraq into Vietnam, the people there will turn against us and then we will surely be losers.
I am troubled about these allegations and agree with Bush. I have always felt and agrued against this the Iraq war, but agree with him in this case.

Well, Ezeddie, Bush is the one who threw these Marines into a war based on nothing more than a personal vendetta agains Saddam Hussein because he had threatened his daddy and, of course, his greed for Iraq's oil. Those troops should be brought home NOW! Let's get realistic--it is almost certain that terrorists are right now within our borders plotting major attacks. We are wasting tremendous and precious resources in Iraq and can't afford to beef up the CIA, FBI and border patrol to prevent insurgency in our country and locate and elinminate terrorists amongst us. These cowardly Neo-Cons living in dread of Iran dropping a nuclear bomb on us are nothing but more sheep being led to the slaughter, figuratively of course. They represent about 25% of us, but that seems to be enough for our "commander in chief" to continue smirking and trying to justify our presence in Iraq all the while creating nervousness around the world because of his threats toward Iran. Our greatest threats are within our border and we need to pull our resources home and deal with them before it is too late.

"If in fact laws were broken, there will be punishment."

Yes, those were his exact words regarding the CIA leak from within his inner circle, but fingers crossed -- fooled you.

Hmmm we are fighting a war right? Kinda like when the USA dropped a bomb on Japan? Children were killed then! I don't see anyone going on trial for that/

What the couch soldiers do not realize is that they are not fighting in a civilized country. Bad guys hide in good people's houses and the good people will not turn them in so sometimes they suffer. Sometimes they die. I am not ready to throw out soldiers to the wolves or in jail. You can not train them to kill, put them in that situation and then punish them when they do. If you dont like the damaged goods then you need to only keep them in country for 3 months at a time.

What we have here people is a bogus war with bogus rules. You call it a war then you punish the soldiers on the ground when they follow your rules.. until a reporter finds out the rules them the rules change and the little guy gets caught and punished... not the people in the white house. JMHO

I have never liken Iraq to Vietnam, but one thing does bother me. This administration is puting politics ahead of the military. That's what happened in Nam. I wish this Bush would of learned from his fathers successful 'shock and awe', where he let the big dog off the porch without a chain. The military did its job without interference, but this president isn't doing that. When you use the military, give them more than they need and let them do what they need. Don't limit the number of troops because you want support from the American people.
Politics must be removed from this fight or we will surely lose.

I can't believe people here could justify the killing of a crippled old man in his wheelchair holding his bible, or of the children who, may of been killed. Too kill in this way is not war, its revenge. Don't you think we have to do something, otherwise the revenge cycle will get way out of hand. Every Arab will start shooting or hating this country.
Once we had a great amount of respect from them, now we have lost that and have become the 'bad guy'.
If you justify, what these Marines may of done, you are saying 9/11 was ok. Because in that attack they killed innocent people, just like the Marine's may of done. Please don't justify this problem. Allow time and lets see for sure what happened. If it is ture I believe these soldiers will be punished accordingly. If the Marine corps covered it up, it will be punished accordingly. I should say the officers who covered it up will be punished.
I have a great amount of respect for the Marines and think this is just a sign of a bigger fundamental problem that hasn't come to light yet.
To justify the killing of these people make us look like Nazi's, because we no longer care about protecting the innocent and just want to punish them for being there, in their homes.

The focused undermining of our military by the two-faced cowardly Democrats continues. They planted their homosexual and otherwise deviant wiccans and other pagan crazies in the military to perform the abuses at Abu Ghraib, etc. The lies and perfidy of Socialists is well documented. They have made misleading the populace a refined art. Rotten socialist scum even search Topix to bring boards like this to the fore, so they can mislead people about our just missions.

All of them from racists like Sharpton to traitors like the Clintons need to be brought before tribunals and exposed for their foulness.
