The man apologized and said “you know I’m just back from Iraq and I’m acting a little crazy… in Iraq we can do whatever. You think they put all that **** on the news? Man ask anybody we rape those bitches over there and we take their men and blow their brains out just like that and nobody ever knows.”
US Soldiers in St. Louis Admit to Rape and Murder in Iraq

During the course of my job this past Saturday night (September 17, 2005) in St. Louis, MO I ran across a rather interesting group of US soldiers.

The soldiers were part of a wedding party for a fellow soldier whose wedding was held in St. Louis. The wedding reception was held at Club Europe on Washington Avenue in the downtown entertainment district.

I picked up a group of two white males and one Latino male who were dressed to party and they wanted to go Harry’s which is another popular downtown St. Louis party spot. The group was immediately rude and disruptive and within a minute I almost had a physical confrontation with the Latino male who was sitting in the backseat of my car.

If its on the internet it must be true.

Even if the report is true, how likely is it that the soldier wasn't just talking trash.

In an echo of the Abu Ghraib fiasco, grisly images of dead, mutilated Iraqis are traded for access to pornography, an apparent breach of Geneva Conventions.

Sure, our soldiers would never do that, boomerang.

Considering that the guy is cannon fodder fighting for his life and the TLC offered by the Pentagon by repeated sight-seeing tours of Iraq without proper armor, it is no surprise that he is not his normal self being caught in an abnormal situation. One can't condone his acts but must sympathise.

Be careful not to paint with a broad brush.

Remember, 3 out of a million is a small percentage.

The VAST majority of our soldiers are outstanding citizens....
