The biggest thing coming out of this verdict of the murder of Chris Kyle (American Sniper) is hopefully closure for the families. It will never bring their warriors back but it may help them continue with their lives.
A former Marine was found guilty Tuesday in the 2013 shooting deaths of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the author of "American Sniper," and a friend of Kyle's.
It took an Erath County jury in Texas less than two hours to convict Eddie Ray Routh of capital murder. State District Judge Jason Cashon sentenced Routh to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Routh, 27, had admitted to the killings at a gun range in 2013 but pleaded not guilty. His attorneys and family members asserted that he suffers psychotic episodes caused by post-traumatic stress disorder and other factors. Read full story here
Cpl. Wassef Hassoun was determined a deserter today. I remember him because when he was so called "captured" I and fellow Marines went looking for him Fallujah in 2004. He's just as much as a deserter as is that milk toast mother F'er Bowe Bergdahl. Cowards, whatever you want to call them, it will fit, hero doesn't not come to mind. Cracks me up that that "Wassef" (notice I didn't refer him as "Corporal" because he doesn't rate it) and his lawyer are saying:
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Haytham Faraj, a lawyer for Hassoun, questioned why his client's case was heading to trial when many unauthorized absences are handled administratively.
"To me it doesn't seem very fair," Faraj said.
Because your guilty........
I think we should bring in sassy pants Bowe and get a twofer guilty charge out these..
Below pic sums it up, his uniform is a goat fck and he's overweight hell, the Lance Corporal behind him in camies looks 200% more professional than "Wassef".....vomit
A U.S. Marine who vanished in Iraq in 2004 has been found guilty of desertion charges related to his disappearances there and in Lebanon.
Marine Maj. Nicholas Martz, the judge in the bench trial of Cpl. Wassef Hassoun, found Hassoun guilty of deserting in Iraq in 2004 and then deserting again in 2005 by fleeing to Lebanon after a brief return to the U.S.
Hassoun was also found guilty of causing the loss of his service pistol.
We had a badguy get frisky and go for one of my Marines weapon as we detained him. This is why you zip tie their hands and feet kids! Anyone who says different hasn’t had a haji try to kill them when they are questioning them. Just when you think you can lower your guard they strike (America, take note). Needless to say haji got a one on one class on MCMAP martial arts and scrapping with a 200lb, pissed off, tired and frankly tired of all the bullshit Marine. Haji ate some dirt after that move. The below is just as motivating as one gunfighter runs out of ammo and continues the fight. Have a kick ass day & be happy you’re alive. Time for a C-Gar!
Marine Ends Firefight By Butt Stroking Taliban In Face
What happens when a Marine runs out of ammo face to face with a Taliban fighter? He beats him with his own weapon of course…
Have you ever been so badass that you ended a firefight by butt stroking a Taliban fighter to death with his own PKM? SSgt Wooldridge may be only man on earth to answer that question with “Yes. Yes I have.”
On June 18, 2010 Wooldridge’s mounted patrol came under enemy fire in Musa Qala. His squad dismounted their vehicles and maneuvered on the enemy fighters, who were preparing an ambush. Wooldridge, armed with a M249 SAW, and the rest of his squad killed or wounded about eight insurgents, causing the rest to scatter. This is when Wooldridge took the initiative and assaulted the enemy position on his own.
Not that I agree with it, here is som gouge.
HEADQUARTERS MARINE CORPS, WASHINGTON — The Marine Security Force left the American embassy in Yemen for the movement to the airfield as part of the "ordered departure" with only personal weapons. All crew served weapons were destroyed at the embassy prior to movement. None of them were 'handed over' in any way to anyone. The destruction of weapons at the embassy and the airport was carried out in accordance with an approved destruction plan.
Upon arrival at the airfield, all personal weapons were rendered inoperable in accordance with advance planning. Specifically, each bolt was removed from its weapons body and rendered inoperable by smashing with sledgehammers. The weapons bodies, minus the bolts, were then separately smashed with sledgehammers. All of these destroyed components were left at the airport -- and components were scattered; no usable weapon was taken from any Marine at Sana'a airport.
To be clear: No Marine handed a weapon to a Houthi, or had one taken from him.
Here is another version of the story:
