This Story Should End Our Wars...Why hasn't it?

...At one point, soldiers in 3rd Platoon talked about throwing candy out of a Stryker vehicle as they drove through a village and shooting the children who came running to pick up the sweets.
 Where are the prosecutions of Americans for war crimes? Why isn't this on the news? Why are we turning our troops into monsters?

This is very disturbing and you will see pictures that will blister your memory. This is the face of America that Afghanistan sees.

  1. I think I agee with one of the comments...we need a draft! Sending men back into harms way multiple times is causing mental issues with our servicemen.

    I was sent to Vietnam and knew I had 1 year to endure...even then I had to struggle to remain sane!

    National Guard deployments work fine during peace time, but continuely putting these men in danger does something to them...and their families.

    This country's young men need the discipline service provides, but continued exposure to violence and horror begins to cause damage...same as violent video games!
