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!
