Fair enough and I do take comfort in knowing you do not condone this
kind of behavior, from our troops or any other person.
I don't however sit comfortably, in my military-provided home, and judge anyone who puts themselves in harm's way to provide the freedoms we enjoy.
I am a military wife who understands, perhaps more so than anybody, what meaning one's life takes on when one signs up to serve their country. It is
to serve and to protect ... not hurl helpless babies off cliffs for amusement. That I will
judge and have every right to, as does anybody else
who pays taxes to the US government, and as a result, this man's paycheck.
I also know enough people actually in the US military who abhor this kind of behavior - and they mimic comments made such as those stated in forum
discussions such as this one - and know that this is just not right and not justifiable on any level, military or civilian ... and that yeah, being
put in harms way, in a controversial battle, really shouldn't be what drives you to want to hurt a harmless being for the sake of a home video.
Because really, wasn't that all this was ?
What other possible purpose did this incident serve ? I would love to know.
