Kind of like electing a bunch of folks you hope will be conservative ("but, but, she said she'd make the pigs squeal!") and being surprised that one election and a few extra quasi-conservatives didn't halt seventy years of Communist momentum.

If soldiers actually violated policy, there should be a trial. Then the policy should be found guilty and they should give him a medal.
