I am utterly disgusted at the main stream media coverage of the two alleged incidents where United States Marines are accused of killing "innocent civilians" in Iraq.
Our media and most of our elected officials have rushed to judgment and have convicted our Marines before they have had a trial.
Our soldiers SHOULD be treated as if they are INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
I currently think that rapists, child molesters, and "terrorists" are treated better then we are treating one sailor and seven marines at Camp Pendleton.
Please read this article in The Marine Times:
If this does not make you mad, I am not sure will... We honestly treat rapists, child molesters, and "terrorists" better then we are treating these eight soldiers who have bravely served their country in combat...
Boy am I MAD.
As far as Haditha goes; the same principle holds true. Our marines ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
I am really angry at The Pentagon, President Bush, and all members of Congress from both The Democratic and Republican Parties. NOT ONE OF THEM HAS HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE AND TOLD AMERICA THAT OUR SOLDIERS ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
THEY ARE ALL COWARDS...
I kind of expect The Democrats to act this way (Except Lieberman); but, The Republicans are going to pay a HUGE political price this in the 2006, and THEY SHOULD.
