Their home land? I dont think you know what Afghanistan is. They dont look at it as "their home land". They are a villiage nation. They have property , and its theirs , you come on it , you die.
Are you serious? We slaughtered 22 terrorist in 2 days and had 0 losses. They arent hard to kill , the only thing hard about the terrorist is they use women and children to hide. Thats it.

The guy is in custody, which is more than we can say for the Afghan / Taliban murderers. He, like the people involved in Haditha, will face an article 32 and possible court martial based on the rule of law and not the whim of 9th century sharia jurisprudence.edit on 11-3-2012 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)
We are at war. People die. People lose it.
Here's real neat idea!
Surrender. Have all the people who are trying to kill us, stop. Raise the white flag.
Once you do that, we leave, have a parade, give a few speeches, and it's done.
you are blinded by patriotism other wise known as the sheep effect
...woman and children ..one child was 2 years old ... nothing can justify it ...
22 terrorists ..were they the ones the USA troops were pictured urinating on
keep flying the flag bro... the rest of the world really do think the american army are not all that
i agree the american army should be pulled out
they are clearly not up to the job

We shouldn't be there anyway. What else can we expect from multiple deployments over the last 10 years. Who knows how many warzones this soldier has been in. I was only in Iraq but I knew many guys who had multiple tour in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that was in 06.

I wonder how many of these psychos will be going berserk once they head back home.
What goes around comes around.
...those 'psychos' are the same ones that you would be praising and begging for if our own nation was ever invaded. so easy to talk trash now, but if these 'psychos' didn't fight for our country while it was being invaded you would be calling them cowards and wondering what to do to save your a**. now they are psychos, when you need them they are heroes. support the troops is a joke...
