    Agreed. Showing disrespect to the enemy is certainly a breach of the standard the US Military has set, and should be handled internally, but to say it's an atrocity is a bit of a stretch.

    Here is what the guy we plan to turn over security there to said:

    "KABUL, Afghanistan — The Americans in Afghanistan are “demons.”

    They claim they burned Korans by mistake, but really those were “Satanic acts that will never be forgiven by apologies.”

    The massacre of 16 Afghan children, women and men by an American soldier “was not the first incident, indeed it was the 100th, the 200th and 500th incident.”

    Such harsh talk may sound as if it comes from the Taliban, but those are all remarks either made personally by the United States’ increasingly hostile ally here, President Hamid Karzai, or issued by his office in recent days and weeks.

    The strongest such outburst came Friday. “Let’s pray for God to rescue us from these two demons,” Mr. Karzai said, apparently holding back tears at a meeting with relatives of the massacre victims, and clearly referring to the United States and the Taliban in the same breath. “There are two demons in our country now.”

    My point is these atrocities are turning public sentiment in this country and Afghanistan to an earlier withdrawal.

    If a few of the far right don't wish to see these actions as atrocities, they can just keep their heads buried in the sand and be surprised that the Afghans and the Americans demand an early withdrawal of troops from there.

    Great. Plenty of things are manipulated for political purposes. I'm just surprised you so readily admit it. Usually people like to delude themselves into thinking their rash behavior has a honest basis. I appreciate the honesty.

    Sorry, I don't buy a lack of discipline being an atrocity.
