Oh, No

No Way:

This must be stopped. The courts martial are one thing, but the MEJA is something else. It was passed in 2000, before the war began, by a Congress that had never had a war to consider. Their context was peacekeeping and garrison operations. This is one of those cases where "let the process work" is not a worthy answer: this process was never meant to apply to these questions.

I strongly suggest you write to your representative and Senators, and to the President, to urge them to put a stop to this business. Furthermore, in the case of the Congressmen, demand that they fix the law so that military members will not be prosecuted in civilian courts for "crimes" "committed" in combat.
