Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
And no, the Afghan leader isn't absolute authority of the definition of atrocity just because it happened in his country. If you don't actually have any valid argument as to WHY it's an atrocity, then sit down. There's no point in having a discussion on a forum if all we're gonna do is say "Oh yeah? Well, this guy said this so you're wrong! Ha!" It's not productive. Again, if you ACTUALLY have a basis to say this is an atrocity, then express it, or, link to someone who expressed it.
And, as I've said before, yes this shouldn't happen. It's a problem that needs to be solved inside the military because it is beneath the standard of behavior set by the US military. Despite this, to say this is an atrocity is absurd. It's not cruel, or unusual, it's just disrespectful.

One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
