We are meant to be one of most technologically and socially evolved nations on the planet (not saying middle-easterns aren't socially evolved but
that's how it's sold to us), what is murdering unarmed people in their won country going to achieve? Granted he was a fighter, but he was defeated.
I think this was a big, necessary step, we can't have our boys and girls out there shooting unarmed men, raping women and generally, giving us an
awful name. All acts like this do is create a better cause for the people shooting back at us. If we had gone over there and had a purely humanitarian
goal in mind, where we helped the sick and injured and made sure the people there were safe, surely we would have their unyielding loyalty? Who
doesn't praise their protectors? But the people out there see the Taliban as their protects, why? because of people like this marine. It needs to be
cast out of our military and we need to carry ourselves with a little bit more civility, even in the chaos of war.
