Wrong fight

Trying to justify or explain away as the product of stress the shooting an unarmed, wounded prisoner is the wrong thing for the military or individual soldiers to do strategically, even if they want to back their own.

Since the Geneva Conventions and earlier agreements that came out of World War I also protect our troops, we need to deal objectively with any soldier accused of such acts. The images of this act and any attempt to justify it will be used against U.S. soldiers and to incite further insurgency.
