    can't agree with you on your home baked definition
    the staff sergeant who perpetrated the subject killing gave every indication of being resolved and having the mental acuity to inflict the wanton attack
    ... but possibly you are then telling us you believe his action against these women, children and other civilians was a sane act?

    I dont know...havent had the convenience of actually discussing it with him. He may have a very reasoned and rational motivation (to him) and his actions post event certainly dont appear to be 'crazy' or insane.

    Would you classify someone willing to die to protect their children or loved ones as insane? The woman who recently lost both her legs while protecting her children...insane? Sanity cant be defined by the act or action.

    It's just as credible to believe that he was bad, not mad. The jury's out, and will be for some time, I reckon. Plenty of sane people have committed appalling acts.

    The same flags flown by the invading armies responsible for all the civilian deaths in Afghanistan. If you want to see protests, bring back the draft where everyone has a stake in the death and destruction it brings. Why are most of the war protesters liberal? Why are none of the viable GOP candidates calling for a quicker exit from Afghanistan? Why is Romney calling for increased military spending? Why did Romney want to continue the Iraq war beyond when the President ended it?

    Have you ever heard of the expression, "the straw that breaks the camel's back"?

    In Vietnam it was the My Lai Massacre:

    This doesn't look to be a bonding experience for the US and Afghanistan:

    Or bring back a republican and then all the fake anti-war leftists will come trapsing out against the war again. face it the anti-war movement is a fashion statment, while you may be the extreme, all your backup, seems to have vanished...... instead cheering for wars such as lybia.... Must really burn you to see that crap. eh?
