Military Charges 8 With Murder of Iraqi

Terrible news from Washington: (New York Times) "Military prosecutors announced today that seven marines and a Navy corpsman had been charged with murder, kidnapping and conspiracy in connection with the shooting death of an Iraqi civilian in April, a senior Defense Department official in Washington said. The men have been confined since May, when a preliminary inquiry concluded that there was sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation. "

This is frightening. For civilians and our military. Having never experienced war myself I can't imagine the way it can screw up someone's thinking. I just don't think these guys left their homes here in the U.S. to start killing people in Iraq. Everyone's a victim here. These soldiers don't stand a chance on their way out to war, and the civilians are getting screwed left and right.
