U.S. Soldier Kills 17 in Afghan Shooting Rampage
Rest In Peace
People snap in home countries with horrible results and in this case it is during deployment. Sad sad with potential consequences.
RIP to those killed.... and i hope that the soldier is getting the help he obviously (to me anyway) needs....
yeah. im sorry, but to me the soldiers needs does not come first this time around.
padded cell status, and thats that.
and this whole situation just keeps getting better by the day :/
RIP to the dead, this is all over the news at the moment here in the UK, the poor bugger must of snapped. The last thing this mission needs after the Koran burnings though, how will ISAF repair this one?
You know, it's a war. Ugly things happen. Any 12th grader who's studied history knows this. The longer it goes, the uglier it gets. One soldier's misconduct doesn't reflect on the whole army; it doesn't negate the mission. But it sure highlights the perils.
Sad for all involved. I have supported the war for a long time.But recent events are making me want to see the day when we finally leave the country come even sooner.
Big thanks to this fvckhead, a lot of good work will be undone because of this. Send him to the firing squad.
May the victims Rest In Peace
Sympathy & Condolences to their Family & Friends.
Sounds like more than 1 soldier was involved in this. I'm worried for innocent troops that are at risk of being turned on by their armed Afghan 'friendlies.'KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (*******) - Coalition forces killed 15 civilians in a shooting spree in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar province on Sunday, the defence ministry said, in an incident likely to deepen the growing divide between Washington and Kabul.
Witnesses told ******* they saw a group of U.S. soldiers arrive at their village in Kandahar's Panjwayi district at around 2 am, enter homes and open fire. http://news.yahoo.com/soldier-detain...060915360.html
