    Yeah, war kills and creates murderers. Why is it that we do this again?

    He was on his fourth tour. Time to get the hell out of there.

    Ft Lewis is saddened and shocked that one of theirs could commit this crime. Ft Lewis is basically one big killing machine but they have no idea what could have set him off. This is the My Lai of our Afghanistan adventure.

    @Radish

    One theory (as I watched NBC’s Nightly News) was that it could be related to a brain injury that this soldier received while on tour in Iraq.
    The reason they have no idea what said him off is because he’s not talking.

    ack – I meant “set him off…”

    I wish this thing came with an edit button!

    He doesn’t really need to talk about what set him off. Just take your pick. 1)Stuck in a country that hates you. 2) All work mentality of the military 3) brutally bad working conditions off the battle field 4) brain injury 5) Stress 6)emotional breakdown 7)minimal recreation and health services 8) all of the above and more. You can probably find some of the suicide motivation for the ones who killed themselves list above too.

    Don’t psycho-analyse the soldier trained to kill, then snaps – he’s more of a victim than a perpetrator. Investigate and treat the politicians back home who train young men and women to kill, then sends them off to foreign countries to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people, for what purpose no one seems able to explain adequately. The number of innocent people murdered by one rogue soldier pales in comparison to the orchestrated killing by the “legal” war machine.

    Dr. Who, do you really hold US servicemen and women to that low a standard of conduct?

    Please! Suicide,depression and PTSD are common in returning veterans. I get to take care of them once in a while, so I know. Who are you anyway? What have you done for our returning veterans….nothing!

    When one of their’s “snaps” and shoots two of our military men he’s been working with, in his country that has been invaded, their whole population is nothing but “savages”. Pardon me for regarding what “the enemy” might think of the invaders with this?


    Experience DOES sometimes bring wisdom, and a degree of humility. What WE need to learn as a society is: “never again”.

    “Never again” has been said many times, but it always happens again. A realization and a determination by the general public that foreign issues are not solved with guns and bombs would be a better approach. But read the blogs – too many think the solution is even more violence.

    Let me see if I’ve got this straight. They can send a suicide bomber into a girls school and that’s cool. We have one guy who snaps after four tours and we’re the bad guys? Yeah, that’s fair.

    @walruscarver2000

    So why is he doing four tours, or any tours?
