i'm sorry, there is no excuse for this.

Marine Cleared in Deaths of Two Iraqis

Before anyone starts, I absolutely support the troops. I wish more than anything that they were not being forced to fight in an illegal war. I wish that they could all be safe at home with their families.

But no way in the world is there any excuse for what this Marine did. No Way! Sixty bullets? Are you kidding me?

60 bullets!
Whatever happened to "wounding" someone to defend yourself, badly enough so they couldn't harm you? Wouldn't a man trained with a gun be an expert to do that?

The upper part of his face is in the shade, but
did you see his eyes?

I'm sure the vast majority of our military men and women and wonderful, but I wouldn't want to meet this guy in a dark alley.
