Top general in Afghanistan expels Marines

These are the men who shot up a roadful of civvies, either in braindead panic—which does seem to happen to servicemen in Afghanistan—or in an adrenaline driven put down of the darkies who dared to be the same race as whoever just set them up the bomb. They then made a couple of reporters erase video and images of the carnage and threatened them with “problems” if any images aired.

The military is finally taking lessons from the Catholic church. If you have men who are engaged in illegal, horrible behavior, don’t discipline or fire them. That’s expensive and embarrassing for everyone. Instead move them to a new parish. Uh, country.
