To tell you the truth, I really can't imagine any American soldier, or Marine, committing those kind of acts..... I am not saying they did, or that they didn't, it just doesnt seem, to me, that Americans would do that, especially with the scrutiny this Iraqi Action has beenf acing. Makes no sense to me.
Murders almost never make any sense, this case is no different. They were ratted out by soldiers who knew about it and felt guilty. These guys had a plan - according to the article they waited for the right time, changed their clothes, and were cold blooded in the way they went about the rape and murders.

The soldier that did it has already been booted. he has a personality disorder...which is I guess a good way of saying he is a mental case who slipped through the cracks of how soldiers are mentally evaluated.
Just guessing, could it be that he had mental problems that he never sought treatment for and therefore there was no medical history?
If he indeed is mentally impaired...does the death penalty still apply?
Now as to the other soldiers...that's the part that will be interesting.
3 GI's mutilated in response/revenge. You can bet those Muslims who did this are seen as heroes by even most neutral Muslims, as they are fighting back against what they see as an unwelcome, better-armed occupant of their country.
This 'eye for an eye' thing will never end, it will keep escalating until one side takes a moral high ground.
The US needs to be better than this and stop stooping to the level of their enemies by committing crimes and (torturing its prisoners).
edit: just noticed there was a thread about the soldiers made.

As patsfan said, innocent until proven guilty, BUT...
If these allegations are proven to be completely true,
then this could end up being a story of HUGE proportions and ramifications for how others see us as well as how American citizens feel about being the 'light on the hill' and having moral superiority.
If it is true it will be about 5 guys who did a brutal crime were tried and punished. People who hate soldiers like yourself will try to blow it up into a general indictment of our soldiers.
Why would you like it to be a HUGE case? Why would an islotated crime be a huge case?
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
