CHICAGO — A former US soldier serving a life sentence for the gang rape and murder of an Iraqi girl and the slaughter of her family lost his appeal Tuesday, court records showed.

Steven Green, named as the ringleader in the March 2006 atrocity, was tried in civilian court after being discharged from the army due to a "personality disorder" before his role in the crime came to light.

Three other soldiers were given life sentences by a military court for the attack, which they plotted over whiskey and a game of cards at a traffic check point in Mahmudiyah, south of Baghdad.

Unlike Green, who has no possibility of parole, they can be released in as little as 10 years for participating in the rape and killing of 14-year-old Abeer al-Janabi and the murder of her mother, father and six-year-old sister.

The funny thing is, we'll give the death penalty to some pissant gangbanger who grew up in a war zone, but not to a piece of vermin like this.

Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations don't even have to create false propaganda to recruit! Like Ron Paul says, our presence over there isn't making us any friends, it's creating new enemies.

They should have turned that idiot Green over to the insurgents. Because of him, three innocent U.S. soldiers were tortured, killed and mutilated.

There were and are no innocent U.S. soldiers in Iraq. They are invaders and deserve to be treated as such. Even if they aren't psychopaths like Green.

Nobody deserves to be treated like those three were. In a technical sense, yes, they were invaders. But they were soldiers who were sent over there to do what they were told to do. They didn't rape or kill civilians.

Be glad you don't live in America. Your taxes would support those evil men. The only way to not support them is to not spend any money which is taxable, or pay taxes at all. You should start now. Otherwise, if you're not against them, you're with them. Put your money on the line.

My logic is infallible.

I don't discuss finances over the internet. I'll just say my income is such that I sleep well enough at night as far as federal taxes are concerned.

I think Wesley Snipes would disagree with you.
