In response to Sistersledge's comment:
the vast majority of the time nothing happens to him .... except for the fact that he lives with it for the rest of his life
or don't you believe that some of our soldiers have crossed the line where they take matters into thier own hands
Of course they have.
Are you saying "we have soldiers that have committed atrocities as well so, we should still support the rebels even though they commit atrocities?
Is that what you are saying?
This guy wasn't a lone soldier or group of infantrymen, he was a well know commander (officer) that did this.
It's not that hard, spanky.
One small group of a splintered force fighting Assad who committed atrocities is not a reason to condemn the entire revolution unless you think that the atrocities of US forces, within a very structered, long standing military establishment should condemn the entire US military.
