This will not end well for the Americans who, already under scrutiny by the Afghan locals after the Koran burning issues, now have a bigger problem to contend with.
Looks like a US soldier left his base at 3 am local time, and entered local homes shooting innocent civilians seemingly at random. Women and children are reported to be along the fatalities.
Left his base at three am local time.........
(just when the bar was closing?)
The Americans may have to withdraw from Afghanistan sooner than they thought if shenanigans like these keep occurring!
Full story here.
There are no bars in Afghanistan for soldiers AFAIK. I've heard they get like 2 beers each at Christmas, but that's it.
I'd have imagined the compounds would have their own fully self sufficient bars no?
Wow. Liberators eh?
This guy should get the death penalty back in the States. Or to save the hassle, just hand him over to the Afghanis
well, thats what happens when you train people to kill people.
Don't know what the pub and club scene is like but there's a fair bit of smack over there.
maybe he was bored,
his playstation was broken? or something
F ucking headcase
What does this even mean? The thing about jokes is, if you're not funny, you shouldn't try it.
BBC are reporting a breakdown, tbh that's bull****, if it were I'd imagine he would have ended himself after his spree. Hopefully they will court martial this soldier and not end up giving him a slap on the wrist and a demotion like they normally do for their murderers.
I thought it was hilarious!
So if it wasn't a breakdown then what would you class it as? A sanctioned attack?
I'm not sure that all breakdowns have to end in a suicide either
And of course you were there, and fully quallified to to analyse the situation and reason behind it.
That you find it hilarious I find in no way surprising.
What would I class it as? Let's see... Murder!
