Yup, Amerikan Army Treats Their Soldiers With Kid Gloves When Committing Crimes During War in Way Off-Topic Posted February 25, 2007 Still, people like to claim that the US Army ignores crap liekt hat or just slaps the guilty. R00fles! This made me remember when here in Italy that american Captain, trying to be better than Tom Cruise, decided to fly in a valley under the minimum altitude above the maximum speed allowed. Then he found out that on his course passed a cableway, the plane cut the cables, and (at least) a dozen of people died. A couple of years later he was promoted to Major. More recently, an italian special agent died in Iraq. He was on way to Baghdad's airport after the rescue of a captive journalist. At a checkpoint some american soldiers panicked, and shooted on the car on sight. The driver died, the hostage was wounded, another agent left in critical condition. Guess what? They were assolved. R00fles!
