This might seem like justice, but there's such a thing as historical context and revisionism. Imagine what might happen to US soldiers who are currently serving in Iran/Afghanistan.

How it is seen now: Solders under lawful orders, serving his country by shooting to kill against known Islamisists, with collateral damage deemed acceptable by command authority.
After 30 years of liberal historical revisionism: A deliberate massacre of innocents. These soldiers were monsters!

Heck, not even 30 years. Look at what the libs are already doing to the special-ops guy who "massacred" terrorsts in Afghanistan last week.

If it wasn't for the bleeding heart Liberal influence on our justice system we could have this guy serving his full sentence as he rightfully should.

Yeah, just who the hell do the Guatemalans think they are using their own system of justice in their own country instead using the American version?

\this is an outrage

"Pimentel had lived in California for many years before being arrested in 2010, and extradited to Guatemala the following year"

Well where else would a 25 year old illegal criminal go to live, work, free medical and vote without question for 30 years?

I think it's different when you are in your own Country killing your own people.

I'm in Guatemala on business right now...so there is a kick and I am getting a reply!

/no, I still don't want a farking flute.

6060 years? That is almost as much as all the soldiers combined got for My Lai.

/No wait.
//almost as much as all soldiers of the US ever got for anything?

That guy sounds like a real despicable shiatbird.

Guatemala in the 80s was no picnic. This film gives a great depiction of it:

US soldiers are deployed in Iran? /the_more_you_know.jpg

You're an obvious troll but I'll bite. So you're saying "this might seem like justice", and you imply US soldiers serving overseas would therefore have a problem with that. With justice. Okay. Which ideals are they supposedly defending again?

First of all, this guy in Guatemala was tried as a criminal in a national court. It wasn't an ICC prosecution. However there are such things as war crimes. And US soldiers aren't allowed to commit them. "I was just following orders" is not an excuse (see: Nuremberg Trials). And anyway, since when has "collateral damage" been persecuted as a war crime? As far as I know, war crimes prosecutions focus on individuals who knowingly committed intentional acts of crimes against humanity.

I'll ignore your derp about the massacre last week.

With a name like that, he deserves to cut up into little rectangles, rammed inside green pitted olives, stuffed into tall thin jars full of salt water and spices, and sold for ridiculously high prices.

As a Guatemalan living an hour away from the capital, I'm getting a kick as well.
