BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- An American soldier in Iraq has been sentenced to two years in military prison on child pornography charges, the U.S. military said Tuesday.

At a general court-martial Monday at Baghdad's Camp Victory, Army Pvt. James R. Bickerstaff pleaded guilty to attempted possession of child pornography and communicating indecent language to a child under 16.

Bickerstaff also received a bad-conduct discharge.

The soldier was stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, in August 2006 when he "engaged in a discussion with a 12-year-old girl in an attempt to initiate physical contact of a sexual nature," the military said.

In April and May, he downloaded pornographic videos to a personal laptop and an iPod and attempted to download child pornography, the military said.

Bickerstaff is with Charlie Company, 1-16th Infantry Battalion, 787th Combat Service Support Battalion, 507th Corps Support Group, at Al Asad Air Base.

No, actually, you'll find a lot of vets (myself included) that say that this guy is bringing dishonor to the uniform and the flag and deserves what he gets.

So how do you feel about the progressive organization known as the ACLU defending NAMBLA?

I think he should accidentally slip and fall off the third deck while cleaning the inside of his wall locker.

As long as they're obeying the law, they should be defended. When they break it, screw 'em. So to speak.

There are at least as many criminals wearing the uniforms of the United States of America as there are wearing business suits and making decisions that directly affect the quality of life for you and me.
