I say let him cross-deck to the Corps. He obviously understands the gravity of the situation in Iraq. Plus, he gets one more thing that is noticably absent from the leftist outcry: Arabs only understand and respect force. He did not pistol whip, nor choke one of them. He tried to get info that could protect his troops from further attack. I say get the Bronze Star back from Lynch and give it to him. What a shame our politicians have once again decided to influence war.

I agree! No one bumped their head or broke a nail, no one got hurt! This is war!! As usual, America is always the nice guy. The only rule I see in war, is to WIN!! They can make Jessica Lynch a hero for doing nothing, now they want to hang a man for scaring the enemy!!

It was West's mistake! Typical Army! He shoulda shot the ba**ard in the knee got his info, then killed the s.o.b. His commander in turn should have put him in for the Silver Star, for saving the lives of many of his troops! Kinder, Gentler my red butt! The polititions have the military weak and scared!! Just who is the enemy anyways? Why are we having trouble keeping good Marines and soldiers? Who wants to put up with that kind of crap!! The heroes of this country are scared little girls who really screwed up, the ****birds are the real soldiers and are going to the Brig for doing what fighting men are supposed to do! GO FIGURE!!!!

Why do we insist on fighting by a book that no longer relates to the world we live in. This book went out with the British in India, if not before. What we grunts have never gotten the idea of, is that these new wars are not to be fought to a victory. Just until a political agenda is reached. It is bounced from the party in power to the party that wants power back. Once the political goal is reached, the other side uses the remaining time to get what it wants.. I suppose it has been so since the begining of modern warfare. I wish the Lt Col luck, he is going to need it.
