Where does the "I was only following orders" come into play?
Again....and again.... 26 soldiers had charges brought against them for their roles. Whether via Courts-Martial, NJP or other judicial processes, none of the 25 remaining were convicted.
"Twenty six soldiers were charged with criminal offenses, but only Second Lieutenant William Calley Jr., a platoon leader in C Company, was convicted. Found guilty of killing 22 villagers, he was originally given a life sentence, but served only three and a half years under house arrest."
And I'm tired of arguing a point with which you have no real life experience and nothing beyond an idealist opinion about.
One enlisted Soldier was shown to have participated with the lieutenant in mass murder of civilians and detainees. That one Soldier was granted immunity.
Again, the Nuremberg Principles are DOD policy. Can you refute that? Or is it better to admit defeat with another round of insults, sailor.
