I k nw I'm going to catch hell for this,but I disagree with the payouts.

Apologies, yes. Prosecution, yes. Punishment, yes.

However, we cannot fight a war (regardless of how we got there) with lawyers as front line soldiers.

I can see the Baghdad bus benches as now..

Not bringing hell and I did think about what you say.... however I'd say that apologies, prosecution and punishment do nothing for the victim. A pay out helps the victim and makes a small demonstration to their society that bad decisions and poor actions carry actual consequences.

I'm willing to be convinced otherwise.

Really? Just not paying compenstation because that's more convenient? I suggest you recalibrate your sense of justice a little there...
