    I'm sure people are jumping to conclusions without getting the whole story.

    Thats great, how many friendlys will die now for this. The pain of this action will tear thru the country. Though i do feel for the soldier, if he has as stated, had a breakdown. However, how much ass covering and backstabbing will be happening thru that servicemens unit right now. The Afghanis will want blood, and there will be a bill to be paid. I dont think that paying the families whatever the going rate will cut it this time.

    Question is, how did a single soldier make it outside the wire without anyone stopping him?

    RIP to the civilians.

    I somehow doubt this will spark the same kind of troubles like the Koran burnings ... but still, awful.
