Even though I had expected the verdict to be what it has turned out to be, I still feel utterly disgusted.
An American soldier in Afghanistan at the US military prison at Bagram base, Private First Class Willie Brand had assaulted, tortured, maimed and maltreated an innocent Afghan taxi driver who was passing the US military camp just as insurgents attacked the camp with rockets. The driver was so badly beaten and maimed in the legs that he couldn’t even stand up after the beating when ordered to do so. He died from severe trauma.
Brand then walloped a second Afghan who died from the beating as well.
The prosecutor Major Christopher Carrier said of Brand’s cruelty as the soldier beat the shit (literally) out of Dilawar:
"Hold him accountable. Thirty strikes is 29 opportunities to stop, but he did not do that. He hit him again."
And indeed again and again and again.
As expected, for his torture and murder of Dilawar, the all military jury merely demoted him from Private 1st class to Private – oh no, how terrible! isn’t that horrid, the poor boy – I mean Private Brand. F*** those Afghans anyway.
Then, they acquitted him of the 2nd charge concerning the other rag head who was killed by him as well. Mind you, the jury couldn’t do much because earlier murder charges were dropped. When rag heads have been killed, it’s not murder, silly!
I suppose he’s an all American boy who shouldn’t be held accountable for killing some brown skin bastards. Those Afghans were f***ing Asians afterall.
Thank God for America. God Bless America. F*** the International Court of Justice and the f***ing rag heads
And Americans wonder why the world hate them!

Bloody Americans! Well what goes around comes around but at the moment the world seems to like kissing the American's extremely snowy coloured bottom.ReplyDelete
That being said. The turkish empire lasted for 600 yrs. The British empire dominance( with the East India company in mind) lasted say somewhere around 300 yrs. I wonder how long can America last. Countries will become more prosperous and stronger. America would be awfully assinine to think that it can hold the reins of power. China, India. Now let's not forget the many other so called 'poor' countries like Africa. Africa too will one day be rich and powerful. Oh have I not mentioned more than 1/3 , maybe upto 1/2 of the world's population are Asians. India, china alone has 2 billion + population. Not to mention other South Asian countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Korea, Japan, Phillipines, Taiwan, etc..etc...).
Oh well...let's see how the world politics play out. Maybe America can maintain her dominance with lots of craftiness and luck.
do you have any idea what these american soldiers go through. they see their friends blown up and killed by afghans. im not saying what he did was right, but why are you taking the side of the enemy? most of these guys would slit your throat if they had the chanceReplyDelete
What these American soldiers went through was to 'invade' a sovereign nation and beat up an innocent raxi driver (Afghanistan) or slaughtered an entire village of 500 women, children and old men (My Lai in Vietnam) and massacred hundreds if not thousands of Iraqi innocents.ReplyDelete
Who's the enemy? The Americans or the Iraqis/Afganistans, who had done nothing to Americans before the US rape of their countries? It was Saudis and Egyptians who flew the planes in 9/11? Why didn't Bush ordered the bombing of Saudi Arabia and Egypt? Why invade Iraq who had nothing to do with 9/11, Islamist terrorists or WMDs?
Most of those guys slit my throat? It's American soldiers I am fearful of. A couple of years back Nelson Mandala proclaimed the USA as the most fearful country in the world.
