18 months for killing an unarmed Iraqi Nov 16, 2006
A US marine has received an 18-month prison sentence for his part in killing an unarmed man in Iraq.

Pte John Jodka is one of eight servicemen implicated in the attack seven months ago in Hamdania, in which a 52-year-old man died.

The judge said he would have sentenced Jodka to five years, but he was bound by a "very fortuitous" pre-trial deal. WTF?

Jodka, who apologised to the victim's family (yea that makes up for it!), is expected to give evidence against the other defendants.

They are expected to face murder charges, and they could face the death penalty if convicted.

By giving evidence against them, Pte Jodka stands to receive a general discharge from the marines, although the judge, Lt Col David Jones, said that he would have given him a dishonourable discharge.

This is why the insurgency has to bomb American soldiers to keep them from murdering and raping more Iraqis, they didn't do anything to provoke the US, they are simply defending their country and people from an illegal invasion and occupation. If US soldiers don't want to be in Iraq, they should desert, frag their officers, or defect, as many of them have.
