Maybe this guy had some special insight that these 16 women and kids were actually building bombs and took it upon himself to go kill them instead of alerting his superiors, but that just doesn't seem very likely. If he just got pissed off and felt like shooting a bunch of people to let off steam, well, I'm not going to stand behind someone like that. I've been on here for over 10 years in support of our service people in the middle east, so don't be ashamed on my account.
You need to read up on the affects of shell-shock and PTSD on roughly 3% of those afflicted by it. I've witnessed the affects of it, you're condemning a man who was probably mentally ill because of his experiences.
This NCO's past history and service record doesn't tally with what he did.
