U.S. soldier sentenced to 110 years for Iraq murders
 
CHICAGO (Reuters) - A U.S. soldier convicted by a military court in the gang **** and murder of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and the killing of her family was sentenced to 110 years in prison on Saturday, the Army said.

Pvt. Jesse Spielman, 22, received a dishonourable discharge after being found guilty of four counts of murder, ****, conspiracy to commit **** and housebreaking with the intent to commit **** by a military court at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.

Spielman was one of five soldiers charged in the March 2006 attack on the family in Mahmudiya, south of Baghdad. Three soldiers previously pleaded guilty in the case and were given sentences ranging from five to 100 years.

Spielman, the court found, participated in the planning of the attack as the soldiers drank whiskey and played cards, and acted as a lookout.

At the start of the weeklong hearing, Spielman pleaded guilty to wrongful touching of a corpse, arson, obstructing justice and violating rules against drinking alcohol in a war zone.

Sgt. Paul Cortez and Specialist James Barker were sentenced to 90 years and 100 years in prison, respectively.

The accused ringleader, former Pvt. Steven Green, was discharged from the Army for a "personality disorder" and awaits trial in a civilian court. He has pleaded not guilty and faces a possible death sentence.

Cortez and Barker, who both testified at Spielman's court-martial, admitted ****** the girl, Abeer Qassim al-Janabiat, and said Green shot her parents and younger sister. Green then ***** the girl and killed her, and they poured kerosene over her body and set it on fire in an attempt to hide evidence of the crime, they testified.

Another soldier, Pvt. Bryan Howard, admitted to monitoring radio traffic and was given a five-year sentence.

The killings outraged Iraqis and ratcheted up tension in the war zone.

This whole war is a big crime and genocide and all these mental ill people should get life imprisonment, most of all poltician, who attacked this poor country. And what about these american psychopaths - it seems that it is only top of the iceberg. Some criminals, who were cought and one case, which saw daylight. But this crimes are commited there day by day. And who plants bombs? Who leads airstrikes and attacks on civilians houses, who destroyed these mosques? It is likely made by these american psychopaths too. It is very sad picture of USA. If their soldiers are representatives of their nation, it seems that this state is a gang of pervert psychopaths. The relations and opinions of a nation is always built on grounds, what is done by leaders and representatives of it.

You are one of the few intelligent people left on MTF.
Most appear to be racist or insane.

Yes, i read the report, and that is absolutely sickening, those soldiers should get the harshest penalties available. But the actions of a few of them, to mtw, must mean that it is representative of the USA as a whole :rolleyes:

no its not, if USA was killing civilians on purpose it would be. 3 or 4 soldiers killing and ****** is not genocide.
poor country? its not a poor country, the people are poor, because Saddam built billion $ houses from oil money.

i'll never understand how violence & sex can be so interchangeable in the male mind.

I know that **** is not sex but it is sexual in nature, how do you go from...grief/anger/retaliation to gang ****** a 14 year old???

disgusting.

Some male minds, rather than the male mind, would be a more appropriate way of describing it. They're certainly not interchangeable in my mind.

It is sickening to think that there are people willing to take advantage of some of the most exposed and defenceless people in the world...and exploiting them in such a manner is beyond repent.
But also to think that these few represent an entire nation is extremely misguided...

ok..so we started with ****..and people are bringing up oil

I could pop in the discussion.. :shrug:..

but i probably wont get to anywhere..

the big picture is missed..because people are defending their flag, dont read any newspapers (except from those totally subjective), and dont know how to read between lines..

anyway.. it is horrible.. war is horrible.. and doing something like this "to defend a country" is horrible..

there are people ,somewhere, who think that that soldier is a hero..and that is concerning :wavey:
