    apparently, someone snapped. On one hand I am not altogether surprised, over the last 10 years, considering the recent events and events in the past that had caused reprisal killings committed by Afghans, donning amercian uniforms to slip into bases,commit sabotage etc etc ....

    The Military Judicial system will swing into action and if it is as appears, he must be punished.




    BALANDI, Afghanistan (AP) – A U.S. service member walked out of a base in southern Afghanistan before dawn Sunday and started shooting Afghan civilians, according to villagers and Afghan and NATO officials. Villagers showed an Associated Press photographer 15 bodies, including women and children, who they said were killed by the American.

    That's awful.

    It's really really time to quit that place.

    A lone US soldier went on a rampage, killing at 16, possibly more, Afghanistanis in their homes; Reuters is reporting that IN Afghanistan, it is being reported as US SOLDIERS drunk, and laughing, carried out the killings. Should Obama speak on this today or soon, or ignore it. Sincere question here. broadcast
