War Is Hell: US Soldiers Killed Iraqi Prisoners For Revenge?

It's a story that shocks a civilian frame of mind and raises so many questions about the effect of war on mankind: Three US Army soldiers murdered four Iraqi prisoners by firing shots to the backs of their heads, execution-style, in the spring of 2007.

The story has surfaced from a source close to one of the soldiers who says after they committed these murders, the US Army officers then dumped the corpses into a Baghdad canal. The killings were meant to avenge the deaths of two of their army comrades, and to this point, all members of Company D, First Battalion, Second Infantry, 172nd Infantry Brigade have not been charged with a crime.

Lawyers representing other members of the platoon who witnessed the slayings, believe the Army officers involved will probably be charged with murder. One of the soldiers involved described in great detail how and why the killings took place.

After receiving small-arms fire, the patrol pursued some men into a building and arrested men who they believed to be the perpetrators. On the way back to the detainment center, they were then informed that they might not have enough evidence to convict and to release the suspects.

Though the soldiers were ordered by army superiors to release the prisoners, one sergeant ordered the soldiers to "take the detainees to a canal and kill them." They then avenged the two fellow soldiers killed by a sniper and executed the suspects themselves by handcuffing, blindfolding, and then shooting them with pistols in the back of their heads, dumping the remains in the canal.

With all we're beginning to know about the effects of PTSD after war, does the warrior mentality change a person? Could these soldiers have been acting under an unspoken military protocol one might not know if one hasn't been in war?
