7 Marines, 1 Sailor Face Murder Charges – Are we becoming just as “barbaric” as Al Qaeda in Iraq?

Ok Folks, I'm not getting it. CBS and A/P are reporting the
Marine Corps on Wednesday planned to charge seven Marines and one sailor with murder in connection with the April death of an Iraqi civilian
, a defense official said. At Camp Pendleton, Calif., where the eight accused service members are being held in a military brig, officials announced that a news conference would be held later Wednesday concerning the alleged killing of the Iraqi in the village of Hamdaniya. But the announcement did not mention murder or other charges.

There is more. The allegation is that Marines pulled an unarmed Iraqi man from his home on April 26 and shot him to death without provocation.

African-American Political Pundit says: "Is America becoming just as "barbaric" as Al Qaeda in Iraq. If American soliders attack or kill civilians (sounds like Vietnam) I'm concerned that we may see an upswing in the number of beheadings our U.S. soldiers experience.

Come on now, we all can see that our soldiers are nothing more than sitting ducks in Iraq like Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Oregon".

Come on folks this is crazy.
