Haditha incident; Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Peter Pace commented: "Clearly the individuals involved - if they are responsible for the things they are being accused of - have not performed their duty the way that 99.9% of their fellow marines have."
There 's about 130,000 American troops in Iraq. 0.1% is 130 soldiers.
According to Gen.Pace, that makes each "bad apple " responsible for roughly 300 civilian deaths each. Holy cow, these guys don 't mess around. Jeffrey Dahmer, eat your heart out. But Army rations are decent so hunger can't be the motive.
So what 's the problem? Arrest these 130 guys. Get rid of them, and leave the rest of the perfect 129,870 democracy-spreading candy-giving good guys alone and let them do their goddamn jobs!
