Recent photos from NBC showed a US Marine shooting and killing an unarmed man in Falluja on November 13th. The US Marine had reported to be shot in face night before, but was able to continue fighting until siege was over.
The action is now under investigation, however fellow marines state they would have done same under circumstances.
Q: Does this mean his action was justified? A: No. Under no circumstance should an unarmed man be killed, even in battle. If he possessed any threat towards Marine then possible action should have been taken, but since he didn’t this is an outrage and Marine should be dealt a court-martial and sometime in military prison.
Q: Is this how supposed best military in world acts towards situations under high stress? A: As far as we know US Military has done a good job for most part, but in situations like Abu Ghurayb and this case should be an indication that something is wrong with US military system.
