His actions after that (while not as horrible) are bad.

He had T-Shirts made and slammed his superior officers on Twitter.

I hadn't heard about the case until it was raised here.

I would leave the judgement to people who know what it's like to be in combat.

I have fought several wars and a myriad battles (how glib is that) however I cannot no matter how I try find the words to express my fear at each event , I cannot describe the smell of war , I cannot find any form of sentence that explains the terror that combat creates in the mind and soul .

I do know that when that moment comes when for the day or the night the hour it stops that moment when there is a deafening silence and you are alive , your crew ,team are still with you  there is a sense of euphoric madness that grips you and for that moment there is the absolute delight in knowing the otherside lost (it does not matter that they will come back for more or that it is never going to end etc)

I watch reruns of the Mike Tyson fights and he was single minded and brutal but the moment the other guy was floored and it was over Tyson moved to comfort him and assist him , there is that same sense that comes over you when you see the enemy who were trying with all their might to kill you they become human again in their pain

I can understand that.

When I was a kid, I fought other kids, but there were rules. Once you'd won, you could be friends with the loser. 

You do everything to win in a real war, but once it's over, when your opponent gives up, treat him properly.

Know what I strongly suggest?  That NO man or woman volunteer for military duty UNTIL whatever war or scuffle the DOD dreams up is debated in Congress and voted upon.  Those that are still in the quagmire called Afghanistan would B well-advised to get the hell out ASAP.  Your gov't has been lying to U all along.

People rightly believe in defending their country and values , are they not the back bone of any democracy , those willing to fight for values ?
