UK government and military accused of war crimes cover-up

There was a court case, one soldier got jailed for a year and kicked out of the army. Where's the "brushing over and forgetting about"?

In terms of justice, I think the verdict and sentence fell somewhat short of what would be normally considered reasonable, given the magnitude of the crime committed. The judge himself remarked, "none of those soldiers has been charged with any offence, simply because there is no evidence against them as a result of a more or less obvious closing of ranks.". To me, that doesn't sound like justice was served.

So, no brushing it under the rug and forgetting about it, you just don't like the result. No worries. As it happens, in this case, I 100% agree with you.

"Of course the soldiers have to be prosecuted if they are guilty"

 

But not the likes of Martin McGuiness I'm guessing?

Maybe they can dig him up and put him Infront of a judge

In what way did Baha Mousa threaten me, my country or my culture? Why would I consider a hotel receptionist to be my enemy?

 

Death of Baha Mousa

On 14 September 2003, Mousa, a 26-year-old hotel receptionist, was arrested along with six other men and taken to a British base. While in detention, Mousa and the other captives were hooded, severely beaten and assaulted by a number of British troops. Two days later, Mousa was found dead. A post-mortem examination found that Mousa suffered at least 93 injuries, including fractured ribs and a broken nose, which were in part the cause of his death.

This report is not true. Anyway, Arab terrorists do have 'day jobs'. Why should children be murdered by Muslim terrorists because our security forces are hampered and restricted by fear of making a mistake but the murders are not hampered. Both the manchester mass killing of kids and the london bridge bomber were known to the security forces but they were not allowed to gather sufficient evidence to arrest them.

There was no crime proved. Now let the BBC make 10 documentaries about muslim grooming gangs, FGM, murder knife and gang culture and the whole curse that I***m has brought to us. Im sick of the tax funded BBC and biased output.

war is war, if there should have been a war is something that should have been dealt with by an inquiry, no good blaming the tools( soldiers) when the going gets tough, when there are no rules being followed by the opposing fractions

Blair and Cameron are the only ones that need prosecuting...and hanging should be the only verdict

Seems you left out the "trial" part of your comment. I am happy to have never served with you in the armed forces or law enforcement. By the way, I believe the death sentence in the UK was abolished years ago.

Blair has had his "trial" it was called the 'The Chilcott Report', it makes damning reading for Blair, the thing that it omits is that Blair was responsible for 1.5 million deaths in Iraq, many of those were British service men. Blair has openly admitted it was a mistake as Iraq posed no threat to the UK, he was sheepishly following G W Bush.

And lastly I wouldn't take everything that people say too literally, I often say "I could eat an elephant between two bread vans" I am not being literal only emphasising my hunger.

I would welcome it's return too but it would be political suicide for whoever tried bringing it back.

I have no issue with a death penalty whatsoever but, and it's a fairly huge but, only in cases where it is 100% without doubt that the person is guilty (and yes, before people jump in, there are cases where there is no doubt ... regardless of mental health issues). Therefore, wouldn't be that many.
