A US soldier in Afghanistan has killed 10 civilians and wounded five in Kandahar province after suffering a breakdown, officials say.

That's just great isn't it? "suffering a nervous breakdown"? You gotta be kidding me. If 10 American citizens would have died, all hell would break loose. This just shows the double standard and we need to get out of these countries. They DO NOT want us there! We're burning their books, killing their people; there's going to be a point when they say enough is enough.

burning Korans wasn't enough

Looks like the guy was mentally unstable from the get go. Let's not tar all ISAF forces with that same brush. What this guy did was reprehensable, and he should absolutely be tried and ultimately put to death for what he did.

There are good, honest young men and women among the ISAF forces. People who see the military as the only way to escape poverty in their home country, or maybe just people who want to serve their country.

Bad things are happening every day in Afghanistan. Not all of those bad things are done by our men and women in uniform.

How many Afghan civilians have the Talibs killed?

I'll be no doubt called a paid shill, a baaah sheeples (some sort of sub-human), but I stand by it. Nothing is black and white.

Something just seems hokey about this. He managed to kill 17 (or so) people and partially burn some of them in two villages all by himself?

Regardless, it's still a tragedy. There's no real reason for us to be there now. They seem to want to continue to live in the 7th century, so let them.

How the Afghanis live is not your business, being there is not your business. The Afghani people have never been a major threat to the USA - Pakistanis and Saudi's are!

This soldier should receive the death penalty for what he did, mental breakdown or not!

Look at the scandal a few years ago in the prison where many of the afgans were tortured and raped. They have pictures of a group of soilders pissing on corpses. They have this incident. Also the numerous ones we never hear about. Look at the wiki leaks scandal. This is the devils' nature. What do we expect from the savage beasts from the hills of the caucus.
