Our soldiers are facing evil daily and if the tables were turned I'm sure the detainee would probably put a bullet in them rather than talking.
Thus we need not pay evil back with evil. Yes they should protect themselves, but we despised Saddam for this same act. This is what seperates us from al Qaeda and legitimizes our crusade.

Yes I believe that too.
Not repaying eye for an eye, tooth for tooth thing, nor getting my own revenge. It's putting those things in practice is where the struggle is.
I can sit here in judgment of these folks and say they deserve all kinds of punishment thrown at them, but I'm not on the front line. I can't even imagine what our soldiers have to do to psych themselves up to strap on their weapon and face death daily.
These few screwed up and will be dealt with we know that for sure, but I wont condemn them for what they beleived they had to do.
