Everyone needs to read this. Wait until these guys join your local police force!! EVERY war is based upon a lie. No-one kills someone who they believe is equal to them. They must be brainwashed, de-humanized themselves, and programed. If you still believe the West spreads "democracy and liberty" you must be severly mentally ill. --------------------- One sergeant shot a boy riding a bicycle down the street for no reason, John Needham said. When Needham and another soldier rushed to deliver first aid, the sergeant said, âNo, let him bleed out.â Another sergeant shot a man in the head without cause while questioning him, Needham said, then mutilated the body, lashed it to the hood of his Humvee and drove around the neighborhood blaring warnings to insurgents in Arabic that âthey would be next.â Other Iraqis were shot for invented reasons, then mutilated, Needham said. The sergeants particularly liked removing victimsâ brains, Needham said. Needham offered a photograph of a soldier removing brains from an Iraqi on the hood of a Humvee and other photos as evidence. His father supplied copies to The Gazette. The Armyâs criminal investigation division interviewed several soldiers from the unit and said it was âunable to substantiate any of his allegations.â âThose guys were seriously whacked,â Needhamâs father said. âAnd it began to grate on him http://informationclearinghouse.info/article23154.htm Marquez's 3,500-soldier unit â now called the 4th Infantry Divisionâs 4th Brigade Combat Team â fought in some of the bloodiest places in Iraq, taking the most casualties of any Fort Carson unit by far. Back home, 10 of its infantrymen have been arrested and accused of murder, attempted murder or manslaughter since 2006. Others have committed suicide, or tried to. Almost all those soldiers were kids, too young to buy a beer, when they volunteered for one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Almost none had serious criminal backgrounds. Many were awarded medals for good conduct. But in the vicious confusion of battle in Iraq and with no clear enemy, many said training went out the window. Slaughter became a part of life. Soldiers in body armor went back for round after round of battle that would have killed warriors a generation ago. Discipline deteriorated. Soldiers say the torture and killing of Iraqi civilians lurked in the ranks. And when these soldiers came home to Colorado Springs suffering the emotional wounds of combat, soldiers say, some were ignored, some were neglected, some were thrown away and some were punished.
