    It's funny, when Afgan civilians kill US soldiers, that's no big deal, that's ok. But when US soldiers kill Afgan civilians (remember, Afghanistan has no military) an apology is required. I say lets get the **** out that **** hole.
    part of American Execptionalism is its ability to admit fault and trying to take the moral high ground.

That strikes me as pre-meditated and extremely rational behaviour.

    Are we dealing here with criminal actions or criminally insane actions?
    You don't know much about ptsd do you?

    No! I told you...NONE of that! You should not excuse and justify his behaviors like a terrorist. What he did is criminal and should be treated accordingly not justified because of his religious upbringing, faith, assault on his morality, etc. No! Bad!

    i was incharge of customs and borders when my unit left afghanistan.leaving country took about 3 months of packing,and thats with us leaving 80% of what we brought so the new unit taking over wouldnt have to halt missions for 3 months so they could unpack and setup.flights get delayed shipments get delayed,infact nearly all of our mail was 1-2 months behind from transport,some smaller fobs were 6 months behind on mail because of the difficulty of transporting it without being blown up.
    I'd like to add to that, whenever we are packed up and moving, literally leaving the country, we're attacked, and that only slows everything down even further because now there's injured people, damaged equipment to recover, and OMG the paperwork for one minor incident can take a PltSGT 8 hours to finalize. Never mind if EOD has to be called, if another military is also involved or civilian Local Nationals in the convoy.

    There's 2 now, and they're both quite nice by Army standards. StillBallin can get a full meal in before telling all those know-nothing high-ranking commanders what'frr.

    lucky my fob had around 3000 american troops when i left plus german swedish and croatian troops.we didnt even have an aafes until around 4 months before we left,before that we had to use the overpriced german and norwegian px.the only thing we had going for us was european name brand cigarettes for about 10 eur a carton.

    Thoughts and prayers to everyone involved especially the victims families. Also praying that the soldier who did this gets the help he needs.

    U.S. military personnel are under U.S. military jurisdiction, the day any U.S. citizen comes under the jurisdiction of Sharia law is the day that this country is no longer worth fighting for.
