  I think we need more information, wombat and jags are right shooting unarmed civilians is murder. My broad spectrum answer is that I don’t believe soldiers should be charged when doing their jobs.

However, as a discussion, the reason I mentioned this in the first place, is why did they wait till this soldier or any other connected to The Troubles we’re old age pensioners.

I have friends who have never got over these deaths because of the circumstances.

These men are now probably in their late 70-80s this all happened almost 50 years ago!

I try to avoid squabbles over the Irish divide Carmella but if these men committed a crime then they should be brought to justice just as Nazi war criminals were regardless of age or how long ago the crimes were committed.

  With all the other discussions on here, I am very surprised that those with strong opinions have not uttered a word about these charges!

I think it is wrong to make these charges on one or more soldiers who were there at the time, and who gauged each situation as it happened. I have never had to make that call, thank goodness.
