Hmmm! Rather a strong reaction.
Unlike you I take a deductive reasoning approach and choose not to accept the explanation of the murderer and his colleagues who had spirited him out
of the country after the mass killings.
Lets touch on this first. While you claim to be this logical thinker, can you explain why you left out the following.
a. There is an agreement in place (signed documents, signed by the US officials and the Afgani officials) detailing how crimes committed by US
soldiers are to be handled. They have handled ALL crimes by US soldiers in the same manner. Why is it you leave this out? Did you not know?
b. They made sure they announced he was on a plane out of there... Do you have the slightest idea why they would do that? They did it for the safety
of other US troops. I know you don't care about their safety, but their are military leaders that are tasked with their safety.
We are also left with the explanation that he was injured with a brain damage on another tour in another country the US invaded, and this may have
been the cause of the atrocity. No evidence provided.
When a seemingly honorable soldier does something like this, people often look for a motivating cause. I brain injury in the past would be something
that is note worthy. Do I think he should have been cleared and in the field, no I don't. But, that isn't what we are discussing here. No evidence
provided? They didn't release his name to protect his family.... I am sure a Dr. medical summary will be released.. The fact that you pointed that out
or questioned that, is very telling of your motive and common sense.
The surviving victims say that it was more than one American killer. I am able to accept their claims because they would be more interested in
catching the killers of their loved ones more than embarrassing the US in the international arena.
It was dark, and from the news conference they seem to be stuck on the assumption "it is impossible for one soldier to do this, their must have been
Like a common criminal, American soldiers have form. I know from the stories of returning US soldiers, marines urinating on the corpses of farmers
described as insurgents, Abu Ghraib, Bagram Airforce Base, Falluja,etc. American soldiers routinely commit atrocities and war crimes.
I bet I can browse your posts and find you telling someone how silly and ignorant it is, to generalize an entire group, simply by the actions of a
few. There have been some horrific things done by US soldiers, this is true. BUT, if you look at the numbers in battle, the percentage of crimes is
not all that high. "Corpses of farmers" You call them farmers, yet you have no proof of this. Just a little more proof, of your willingness to accept
anything anti US, swallowing it whole.
It is for the above reason that I am prepared to put more credibility on the testimony of the victim community over the US soldier. his superiors and
the American media. The killer left Afghanistan in haste; it was indecent.
Are you female? Women are often know for their drama... "The killer escaped silently into the night, like a fast moving breeze taking all of humanity
with him" jeeesh. You act like he had a choice in the matter! Now your just being silly.
Now to consider this latest crime, more than one house was attacked, only those that ran at the moment of executions survived. Those that were dead or
seriously wounded may have been burnt. No guard at the base saw the killer or killers drive out and drive back in.
Do you know any of the facts? They do have him on surveillance camera coming back on base. 2 Afgan soldiers at the gate, saw him leave, knew something
was wrong, informing the higher ups of this odd situation. At that point, they did a head count, narrowed it down to this soldier, then the villagers
started alerting the base of the attack.
All these element points to a number of conclusions; the US authorities are lying, the victims are telling the truth and there was more than one
Was this supposed to make sense? What I get from it is "I hate the US, and am willing to throw logic to the wayside to lay any and all blame on their
A number of conclusions? You have 1 there, that is simply dishonest to the investigative process.
We get it, you hate the US. Your willing to be deceitful to convey your message.
