Bad Apples To Rot In Prison

It's a well known fact that even the greatest group of people will have terrible people in it, no matter how small of a minority they are:

FT. CAMPBELL, Kentucky (Reuters) - A U.S. soldier who pleaded guilty to raping and murdering a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killing her family was sentenced to 100 years in a military prison, the U.S. Army said on Thursday.

Sgt. Paul Cortez, 24, was also given a dishonorable discharge. Another soldier who pleaded guilty in November was sentenced to 90 years in a military prison. Two other soldiers and a former soldier are awaiting trial for the crime.

These pricks got what they deserve. Will the libs now take this as an example of how the Army really does have the interests of the Iraqi people at heart, and see that the Army will not tolerate the few who slander the name of all good soldiers? No. They'll say this is some exception to the rule of the horrendous behavior of US soldiers.
