PostSubject: Soldier Jailed For Gang Rape and murder Of Iraqi Girl and family   Sat Sep 05, 2009 4:24 am

An American soldier who gang raped then murdered a 14-year-old
Iraqi girl after shooting dead her parents and young sister has been
jailed for life without parole



Steven Green, 24, escaped a death sentence after jurors could not decide on his punishment.

But Judge Thomas Russell ruled he would spend the rest of his days
behind bars for the horrific attack on the innocent family's home 20
miles south of Baghdad.

Green was convicted of being the ringleader in the attack, guilty of murder, rape and obstruction of justice charges.

He had earlier been discharged from the Army for a "personality disorder."

The killer led a gang of five US soldiers who invaded an Iraqi family's home in Mahmudiya, 20 miles south of Baghdad, on March 12, 2006.Their intention was to rape 14-year-old Abeer Kassem Al-Janabi.

While two fellow soldiers assaulted the girl, Green shot and killed
the girl's mother, father and six-year-old sister in a bedroom.

He then took part in the gang rape before shooting Abeer three times in the head and setting her body ablaze.

Of the other four soldiers who took part in the attack, three pleaded guilty and the fourth was convicted in military courts.

They received prison sentences ranging from five to 100 years
The case was one of several incidents involving American soldiers
that enraged Iraqis and strained U.S relations with the country and its
government.

The victims
"We sincerely hope that the sentencing helps to bring the loved ones
of this Iraqi family some semblance of closure and comfort after this
horrific and senseless act," said U.S Brigadier General Rodney Johnson.

Green's case was heard in Paducah, in western Kentucky, because of its proximity to Fort Campbell, where he was based.

Relatives of the slain Iraqi family traveled to Paducah after
Green's trial and condemned him as a "coward" who would be haunted by
his acts.

"The face of this innocent girl, that face will be chasing you in
that dark cell you will be in until the last day of your life," the
girl's uncle said at the court hearing.

At least justice was done in part. Makes you wonder what kind of other 'monsters' are in the forces. Or is that this is the consequence of war?

Consequence of War...?

5 Highly trained American troops spot a 14 year old girl they fancy, go to her house later that night, gang rape and murder her, murder her Mum,Dad and 6 year old sister......

Its not War in any way , shape or form..........its animals commiting heinous crimes....War, Country or Uniform serve no part in it surely.......?

The Combined US/UK Forces went over there like bandits riding into town, did as they pleased when they pleased..

Remember all the prisoner violation pics ( and many haven't been shown either ).....

We deplore the acts carried out by smaller countries on their own or other countries populus, we dont call it a consequence of war, so surely we shoudn't with these animals either...?

Surely if you are any decent type of human being you know when something you do is wrong?

To use the cover of war to do it is just doubly wrong in my eyes.

Only someone high on drugs or with a mental health issue would be incapable of making a rational judgement on the severity of the crime, if these people were neither, then they deserve to be sentenced accordingly.
