    The ringleader of a rogue US army unit responsible for the "thrill kills" of Afghan civilians has been jailed for life, after a military jury convicted him of three murders.

    A five-member military panel found Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs guilty at the end of a week-long court martial, and said he should serve at least 10 years behind bars before being eligible for parole.

    Gibbs was convicted on 15 counts in all, including three of premeditated murder for his role in three killings in southern Afghanistan between January and May last year.

    Well done, court :clap2:

    No love for the hundreds of thousands of Buddhists slaughtered by the muslimes when they conquered Afghanistan?

    Oh, that's right, poor shits like you are uneducated.

    Great news. It just shows how well our military polices itself (one of the best in the world at doing so).

    Our military can't defeat a bunch of Arab sand rats after 10 years.

    Haha our military hasn't been allowed to defeat the enemy. It is well within our might however the political agenda deems a longer war necessary to distract the American people from the Economic woes and Congress' refusal to cut spending where it needs to be cut as opposed to DOD.
