If it can get any worse...

I don't know what kind of people enlist in today's Armed Forces.

I do know, however, that if 4 Iraqi soldiers raped and killed a 14 year old American girl and killed her family to cover up the crime, Americans would go ape-shit if even one of them got a reduced sentence for pleading guilty.

Specialist James P Barker pleaded guilty today and will testify against his co-rapist buddies in order to avoid the death penalty. Brave soul, James. Asshole.

I support our troops. I don't support rapists. I especially don't support child rapists. All four of these guys deserve to swing from a rope. There is absolutely no such thing as a mitigating circumstance in this issue. They planned it, they executed it, and they tried to cover it up.
How is it that we keep on being the bad guys here?
