US soldier receives mild sentence for Iraq abuse

A US Army dog handler has been demoted and sentenced to 90 days of hard labour for using his dog to assault a prisoner at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Sergeant Santos Cardona, 32, of Fullerton, California, the 11th US soldier convicted for abusing Abu Ghraib detainees, also will have to forfeit $7,200 in pay, an Army spokeswoman said on Friday. He will not be confined during the term of hard labour but will be demoted to specialist.

Does the punishment fit the crime? Talk about a slap on the wrist. And we have yet to see some of the 'higher-ups' brought to trial and face punishment. It is too much to expect the US to act in a just manner. It will never happen. They consider themselves above any and ALL international laws.

aren't self appointed gawds something?

this transition period into 2012 is going to get worse, but i'm at least glad there'll be lots of us around to help create the better world.

perhaps bush and his army cronies should have a collar placed around them and be trained to attack.....on second thought, they may like the taste of raw human too much. hmm, maybe that's what chaney was up to on his hunting trip.

i think i've just grossed myself out.
