Wanted to get peoples thoughts on the recent news that five British marines are to be charged with the murder of an Afghani "insurgent" after they broke the rules of engagement.
I'm completely against the military in general and think we have no place in Afghanistan or Iraq or any other country for that matter, but for five guys to be scape-goated in the way they have simply to appease the general public and win some favour back is a disgrace.
You can't train thousands of barely mature kids from questionable backgrounds (sorry to military folk who are intelligent, most of you aren't) how to kill, arm them with state of the art weaponry, send them to a warzone thousands of miles away and expect them to behave like rational human beings. Charging them with murder is ridiculously hypocritical.
