Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

I can't believe this crap......

Today a Spanish court issued an international arrest warrant for three US soldiers. Back during the fighting in Baghdad a tank fired a round at the Palestine Hotel. A Spanish journalist was killed. So Spain wants to arrest three soldiers and put them on trial. Now I am trying to figure out what exactly they are trying them for. If it was the tank crew I would say maybe involuntary manslaughter but no, it is a Sgt, (who was probably the gunner on the tank, a Capt. who may have been the tank commander, and a Lt. Col. (Battalion CO maybe????) I sincerely hope the the US government tells the Spanish Govt to kiss their butts.
I am exceedingly not happy with this all across the board.
Spain orders arrest of US troops

The biggest problem will come if one of these soldiers gets stationed or even goes on vacation in Europe where the Sapnish authoriteis could have them arrested and taken to Spain. It is of course MY HOPE that if that happened we would give them 24 hours to relaese the soldiers before we sent the marines to get them out.
