US Marines War Crimes Scandal: Trump Finds Replacement for Navy Secretary


For the first time in recent years, the American minister was dismissed with the wording of the loss of confidence. We are talking about US Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer, who turned out to be a defendant in a scandal over the commission of war crimes in Afghanistan.


Started история with the initiation of criminal proceedings against the US Marine Edward Gallagher in connection with involvement in war crimes. During the investigation, the American Marines tried to block, to which, as stated, the Minister of the Navy Spencer was also involved.

The president of the United States intervened. According to Trump, he was dissatisfied with the way the trial of the aforementioned Gallagher passed. Trump also decided that the post of minister of the naval forces will be occupied by another person. They will be Kenneth Braithwaite. Until recently, he served as the American ambassador to Oslo.

Trump:

I will appoint (as Minister of the Navy) Admiral and Ambassador to Norway Ken Braithwaite. I'm sure Ken will do an outstanding job.

Trump added that he was pleased with the decision of US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper to dismiss Richard Spencer. The US President thanked Esper "for his loyal service."

At the same time, the American president noted that there will be no prosecution against Spencer, and he leaves his post with all the honors and regalia that he previously deserved.

        And he did everything right: that marine is most likely not a good man, but this is his man. we don’t hand over our wards, we figure it out ourselves ... Why spoil the image?
        We don’t surrender ours - this is the law

          In fact, the battalion commander hid them from the law and illegally punished them.

              This is America. They shot down the Iranian Boeing, so the American captain was presented for the award. Lieutenant Kelly, burned the village of Songmi, with women and children, and that, got off probation for a year, and then also served, with all the "regalia."

            It all ends up being filthy. One can recall ordinary Glukhov. Once he arbitrarily left the unit, the Ossetian border guards caught. Combat agreed, hid. He kicked out of the clerks in order. He was offended, went to drink. to a neighboring Georgian village. There he swelled for a day, got scared and, voila, gives an interview on Georgian television about cannibalism in the Russian army.
            And after all, the battalion commander could not be solved in another way. He was going up, flying with the runaway could put an end to this.

              So that's the point.
              Any offense is an offense, a rule or law may be liked or disliked, but if you have violated, then do it or not - this is a violation! And only a lawful court can relieve the offender of liability taking into account all the circumstances.
              I do not condone the violators, I mean that this is a fairly common phenomenon and therefore there is a punishment for concealment and concealment.

                But at the same time, there are a great many reasons, from personal, mercantile, beginning with foreign policy endings, for which superiors go to conceal the delinquencies and crimes of their subordinates.

            These language can only be a statement from the lips of a judge. If the trial didn’t reach the court, then the situation was resolved by agreement of the parties.

              According to the words “two gopniks got shod”, one can understand that there was a robbery (and maybe robbery) and a group of people is part 2. Art. 161 at least, i.e. felony, such cases cannot be decided "by agreement of the parties." If the application was filed, they were obliged to give a move to him, investigate and then send him to court. And here comes another lawlessness.

            Well done your battalion commander. After that, the “civilians” and everyone around them in the subject of what happened will reasonably believe that we have no laws and no court. After all, people who committed a crime under the law did not go.

          Americans do not give up. Even the proven crimes in Vietnam ended for the defendants with house arrest at a military base. On the other hand, our military prosecutors TRIZH overturned acquittals in the Ulman group. A disgrace.

        This is politics. Resignation has a very weak relationship with real crimes and a specific case, as just an occasion, honors and regalia - compensation.

        The raven will not peck out the crow. Spencer, of course, a scoundrel, but it's their scoundrel. Of course, it’s a little paradoxical that the Navy Minister was removed for land Afghanistan. In general, the marines in Afghanistan - this is a non-core business for them, the embittered marine has committed a crime. what

    This means that they will not be deprived of pensions, and this is with the wording "for loss of confidence." With this wording, even the loader will not accept us at the warehouse, but they have normal. They create lawlessness in almost all regions of the world and at the same time teach others how to live right, and most importantly to build democracy.

      Abu Ghraib - this is only because Lindy England lit it with her photos. There are similar prisons in Lithuania (one proven case of torture, the ECHR fined EUR 124 thousand), in Latvia, Poland, Kosovo, Guantanamo, Diego Garcia, Thailand (the current CIA chief personally personally tortured in a Thai prison), Afghanistan (where they are being taken even British citizens). And how many has not yet been lit, in the same Iraq, Syria, Israel?

    In a delicate balance, Trump decided not to resent the military either. Removing slowly covering up atrocities is also not bad. For a collapsed column may offend him.

    What it means is to get a head injury in the maternity hospital. Confuse all the landmarks in life. Confuse God's gift with fried eggs.
    To destroy the aggressor, who broke into the country without demand, at home, using ANY means of destruction, is a sacred thing. It is then, and only then, that the destruction of the enemy is not a crime.

    But tell me to the illiterate how this works.
    The U.S. Navy Secretary, the U.S. Air Force Minister, the U.S. Secretary of Defense.
    I suspect that there are other ministers (infantry, armored forces, etc.)
    It seems to the minister that the minister is not a decree, but a “friend, comrade, and brother” for work in the government. AND? The Minister of Defense wants to do something, but he is finely seen by others of equal size.
    Or the president wants to "stir up the stench", and the ministers run to the Senate to complain.
    Unclear.
    And where does all sorts of committees of chiefs of staff and so on?

    Damn, why was there something to block? They would give the marines 100 life sentences without talking; at the fifteenth minute of their sentence, they would receive a pardon. And strictly (for the world), and humanely (for domestic consumption).
