    Everyone knows this is Bush's fault for forcing Obama to 'inherit' this problem.

    He's an American, and he's a Soldier. 4 deployments, plus a TBI, and nobody took him out of rotation for examination. Sorry, I'm not rushing to judgment on this.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I don't care if he was the Pope, when someone kills women and children in their sleep, they no longer have my allegiance, or my sympathies. I can only hope that some good comes of this in the form of a strong antiwar movement in both countries that ends this war sooner.

    W = the war
    S1 = US forces
    S2 = Enemy forces, including Taliban
    O(W) = the military objective of W
    B(O) = the long-term benefit of O
    C(W) = the long-term cost of W (including the deaths of innocent men, women, and children)
    J = boolean value indicating whether a murder committed by S1 is justified

    then

    J = B(O) > C(W)

    Like I said in post #223 the soldier might have had brain damage.

    Let's not be so quick to be sceptical or not sceptical, shall we?
    It appears to be you that is rushing to find mitigating circumstances to explain this incident. I would mainatin a sceptical stance towards everything that is being said from all quarters until more information appears. I doubt the truth of everything that has so far emerged.

    I understand that Obama has apologized.

    Let this being a teaching moment, and spend some more time and possibly money safe-guarding the mental health of those who sacrifice so much for this country.



    I agree.... Too bad Obama wants to increase the co-pay these soldiers and thier families have to pay.

    Wow, what a cheap shot in not the right thread for it. And then not even classy enough to provide a link that documents what you are saying.
