(4-26-12) On 21 April 2012, we read about how the CIA and Mossad have murdered US troops in Iraq.
Roman generals often killed their own troops. The earliest documented 'decimation' occurred in 471 BC.
The Italian General Luigi Cadorna applied decimation to under-performing units during the First World War.
In his book Stalingrad, Antony Beevor recounts how, during the Second World War, a Soviet commander practised decimation on retreating soldiers by walking down the line of soldiers at attention, and shooting every tenth soldier in the face until his pistol ran out of ammunition.
