Exactly!! watch the spin begin. By the time the spin doctors get finished , the loyalists will make him into a hero. How anyone can even begin to justify or rationalize this conduct is beyond any human comprehension. It is just arrogance.
Can you imagine what the US would do (and has done) when the troops are ambushed or shot at en masse?? They come back at the offenders twice fold with as much savagery as is possible.
This is an example of how the US views itself and its almost omnipotent role on the planet. (nothing but a sick delusion which is causing such rage at the US ......that the US can use as an excuse for more protracted wars. )
This CRIMINAL was out of control by choice. He drank by choice and everything that followed was by choice. The alcohol just liberated him enough to follow through on the most dastardly act in the past few months.
If he could not handle being a military member......then he should not be in that profession. Of course the War loving regime is to blame too.
