Re: What would you do if you were this US soldier?
Hello all. I finally had some time so I figured I'd check out what's going on.
I can't open up this link because the Information Tech guys block alot of websites and programs. So if i'm thinking right, this is the video of one of our guys standing next to the HMMWV. the camera is pointing at him and the bad guy is saying something in Arabic (for god or something), then shoots him. The soldier gets up and runs to the other side of the HMMWV. The shooter was chased down and he insisted that he wasn't the shooter.
Good news. My good friend, a military attorney, who has now departed and went back to his home station, convicted this guy in an Iraqi court and managed to get this guy a 20 year sentence. And from an Iraqi point of view, it is considered a life sentence. It may not seem that long, but for any type of punishment to be handed out in an iraqi court, that's a big deal. Another great thing is when this guy was convicted and sentenced, it was the first ever for attempted murder charges.
This is one of the great accomplishments that my friend achieved during his tour. Great going MWN.
