Gee, people doing that kind of thing must be deeply disturbed. Maybe we should stop putting soldiers in situations that make them deeply disturbed. Just sayin'.
In past wars that the u.s has been in children a lot of the time are hostile enemy's with weapons, bombs, detonators for bombs etc. yes I do believe that some soldiers have crossed the line but under what circumstances
Real soldiers do not kill innocent civilians, but in war sometimes they die. Bombings are indiscriminate killers and the worst threat to civilians. Do not blame the men and women who fight for their nation, but the leadership that got us into those wars
It is a sad fact that wars help drive the economy. LBJ's inlaws got rich from the government contracts to suppy the Vietnam war
I am the furthest thing from a republican than you can imagine, I only mentioned LBJ because I am a Vietnam vet and familiar with his situation
Read my stories and confessions if you have any doubt. I was a Vietnamese translator and code breaker in 1972-73. I never shot at anyone but did help guide the war effort
yeah, thats def not okay. I agree, soldiers need to be severely penalized for overstepping in that way.
Of course I don't support that kind of behavior in our soldiers! I don't support those actions for ANYONE. Who the hell does? But you can't condemn all soldiers for the crazy, sick & twisted actions of a few! I believe the majority of soldiers are just what they were Trained to be.. good, honorable, patriotic men who do exactly what they were trained to do.. protect our freedoms by trying to help other countries with Their freedom!! And soldiers have MANY limits on their behavior, the problem being those like this Bales who for whatever reason fail to Control their behavior!
You are entitled to your opinion!
