    they should shoot a lot more of them.

    If the marine swears he's a democrat he can get off because he was just imitating bin kerry. Kerry (who was in vietnam by the way) shot a wounded teenage VC in the back and got a medal for it.

    We need a lot more info. For example, was the man wounded but holding a grenade with the pin pulled, an AK, detonator, etc. Just because he was "wounded", that does not mean he didn't still pose a threat.

    The word on Fox was that it was a fighter pretending to be dead--I may have jumped the gun but the marine has been removed from his unit and it's being investigated. I just know how the press loves to spin this crap.

    NBC Says Marine Shot Dead Wounded Iraqi Prisoner

    48 minutes ago World - Reuters

    LONDON (Reuters) - A television pool report by U.S. network NBC said on Monday that a U.S. Marine had shot dead an unarmed and wounded Iraqi prisoner in a mosque in Falluja.

    The Iraqi was one of five wounded prisoners left in the mosque after Marines had fought their way in on Friday and Saturday. There was no immediate comment from the Pentagon (news - web sites) on the report.


    U.S. forces launched an offensive one week ago on Falluja, and have gained overall control of the formerly rebel-held city, although scattered resistance remains.


    The pool report by NBC correspondent Kevin Sites said the mosque had been used by insurgents to attack U.S. forces, who stormed it and an adjacent building, killing 10 militants and wounding the five.


    Sites said the wounded had been left in the mosque for others to pick up and move to the rear for treatment. No reason was given why that had not happened.


    A second group of Marines entered the mosque on Saturday after reports it had been reoccupied. Footage from the embedded television crew showed the five still in the mosque, although several appeared to be already close to death, Sites said.


    He said one Marine noticed one of the prisoners was still breathing.


    A Marine can be heard saying on the pool footage provided to Reuters Television: "He's fucking faking he's dead. He faking he's fucking dead."


    "The Marine then raises his rifle and fires into the man's head. The pictures are too graphic for us to broadcast," Sites said. No images of the shooting were shown in the footage provided to Reuters.


    The report said the Marine, who had returned to duty after being shot in the face a day earlier, had been removed from the field and was being questioned by the U.S. military.


    Sites said the shot prisoner "did not appear to be armed or threatening in any way."

    It ll always happen that people who just got shot by the enemy before loose it.

    maybe he should have made the dude put on an orange jump suit.....made him beg for his life .... demanded that all terrorists pul out of iraq ... then cut his head off on video ... blow up the mosque.... then stick his head on a pole in the town sqaure and then drag the body through the streets tied to the back of an escalade with spinner rims........playing the clash tune rock the casbah....

    nah that is a bad idea :smoke:

    it is also a bad comparison of a soldier involved in a military operations
    against insurgents that lost his cool

    or terrorists showing off murdering civilians in cold blood.
