    U.S. Soldier Who Killed 16 Afghans feels guilt and fear [W:63]

    U.S. Soldier Who Killed 16 Afghans: 'I Became Callous To Them Even Being Human'

    "I planted war and hate for the better part of 10 years and harvested violence," he added. "After being in prison two years, I understand that what I thought was normal was the farthest thing from being normal."
    Reminds me of Chris Kyle and Eastwoods' "American Sniper", the movie shocked me so deeply.
    A man who kills whom he thinks is an enemy is guided by God, some say.
    It seems to be a good thing from the start and in terms of fighting spirit of an Army it is the best but what comes next?

    I have too many examples of a peaceful life to stop existing for a man who returned from a campaign.

    What is a Sacrifice for democracy?

    Sounds like a weak man.

    Do you honestly believe the afghani invasion was a way to spread democracy?

    Even if it was, what gives us the right to kill anyone in our perceived ideal political structure?

    I doubt his not questioning authority was the problem.

    Just so we are clear, that soldier killed those people in violation of military law. Now he's just trying to shift blame for his sociopathic nature to the military. Tens of thousands of soldiers did their job and were exposed to the same sorts of things he was without violating the law and killing innocent people. He's an aberration.

    To paraphrase Kipling, rough men stand ready to do violence on our behalf so that we can freely post our drivel to this board. Perhaps some day they will decide we are not worth it.

    For telling the truth.... This guy needs an extra taco on taco Tuesday nights. As for leniency in his sentence? NO. Im sure over time he will come to appreciate the extra taco when he is in prison for life. The truth of dehuminization needs to get out to the public. But the public also needs to know that crap like this is inexcusable. So give him an extra taco on taco night.
    Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.

    that's fine with me. I'm not worth it. Come on home, all of you. soldiers and sailors. build a double fence on our mex border. man the rifle towers every 1/4 mile of it, 24-7, and find and kick out the invaders who are already HERE. Stop worrying about some "maybe someday " enemy when you are not dealing with the "right here, right NOW " enemy.

    Of course not.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Idiot award goes to Winston Parker, for thinking that a guy who casually strolls into a village and blows away more than a dozen innocent people is similar to a sniper who defends others by killing combatants.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    False. He is in prison for murdering Afghan civilians. It seems clear that his disregard for authority was his problem.
