Winning the hearts and minds this is not, this is in fact the exact opposite. The “Kill Team” might as well go and recruit for al qaeda, because their actions in Afghanistan are of the kind that turn civilians into terrorists. You may not have heard about a rogue group of soldiers from the 5th Stryker Brigade killing and brutalizing innocent Afghan civilians, you know, the ones our armed forces are supposed to be rescuing from the evil clutches of Taliban rule. If you haven’t heard about Jeremy Morlock, a member of the 5th Stryker Brigade, admitting to the murders of three Afghan civilians in 2009 and 2010, I wouldn’t be surprised seeing as how the majority of the mainstream media has turned a blind eye to this. Liberal bias? Sure, this is exactly the sort of story bleeding heart pacifist liberals would ignore. In case it’s hard to tell that was a lame attempt at sarcasm. Morlock’s plea deal involves him testifying against fellow soldiers in his unit who are also being accused of crimes. Morlock has been sentenced to 24 years in prison, with the opportunity for parole in 7, an incredibly light sentence. In all, 12 soldiers are said to have participated in crimes against the Afghan people such as killing innocent unarmed civilians, collecting fingers from corpses as trophies and using narcotics. You can head over to Rolling Stone for an in-depth article featuring pictures and videos of these heinous crimes.
