    John Kerry did not call the troops terrorists. And the killer in Afghanistan is also not a terrorist but a murderer.

    The vast majority of civilian deaths in Afghanistan have been caused by the Taliban.

    He's only a murderer when he wears the uniform of this country...Over here had he gone on a spree, he'd likely be classified as insane and in need of rehabilitation right?

    I would be curious to see your source for that claim.

    The Taliban is repsonsible for about 75% of civilian deaths over the last 10 years.


    Where is the Taliban apology for all the civilian deaths they have caused?


    "The official says it's unclear whether the suspect had been drinking before disappearing from his military base in Kandahar province or whether alcohol was simply found in his living space at the base.Military rules prohibit the use or possession of alcohol in a war zone."

    The Associated Press: AP source: Possible alcohol link to Afghan deaths


    Afghan witnesses reported that the soldier was shouting, while shooting, like he was drunk.

Must really burn you to see that crap. eh?
    Most anti war liberals aren't antiwar for its own sake, but follow just war theory. Lybia would be considered a just "war" as was Bosnia, desert storm, Kosovo, and if we got involved, darfur.

    The first increase is going on the retired military personnel which, IMO (im military btw), its justified considering the Co party is so low that it may as well not exist. Furthermore, medical (not related to war) and other cost is bloading the DoDs budget, possibly preventing other improvements or getting the best equipment to people outside the SF community.

    Don't put words into my mouth. Wether or not he was wearing his uniform is of no importance to me. He could have been cross-dressing or been dressed in a g-string, it is not his clothes that determine if a person is a murderer but his actions. Going into a town and gunning 9 children down and a few more people is murder no matter who, how, what, where and because of what.

    A killing spree is just as much murder as any other murder. And being insane is a legal term to describe why a murderer has done what he has done, it does not alter his status as murderer.

    If you feel someone like that is in need of rehabilitation that is your issue, I think he needs to pay for his crimes, if he was a murderer that did so because he was insane he needs to first serve a prison sentence and then needs to be remanded until he no longer poses a threat to the population. I could care less if that means he has to be locked up until he is dead or that he can with treatment be seen as cured.

    From your source: " the continued annual rises has seen over 12,793 killed in the past six years."

    So in just 6 years of our war on Afghanistan, 12,793 civilians were killed of which you stated the Taliban killed 75%.

    In those same 6 years by your source, Coalition forces killed 3,198 Afghan civilians. How does that compare with the number of American civilians killed by the Afghans?
