Suspect in Afghan Civilian Killings Knew Tensions of War From Four Tours

The sergeant identified in the killing arrived in Afghanistan on Dec. 3 from his home station at Joint Base Lewis- McChord in Washington state, the U.S. Army said in a memo prepared yesterday for members of Congress. He was with the 2-3 Infantry, 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 2nd Infantry Division.

While in the conventional military, he was attached to a Special Operations task force in southern Afghanistan on Feb. 1, according to the memo.

The suspect is 38 years old and is married with two children, ABC News said, citing a U.S. official it didn’t name. He had marital difficulties after his last tour of duty in Iraq and had previously been deemed fit for duty after suffering a mild traumatic brain injury, the network said.

Bomb Syria so that I can sleep at night
The most shocking thing about the intervene-in-Syria lobby is not its historical amnesia over Iraq and Afghanistan, but its naked narcissism.

  1. the most wonderful thing about bombing Syria is the help we be giving the rebels. Because the Rebels are run and organized by Al-Queda is of no consequence.

  2. Al-Queda and the CIA go back a long ways together, to at least the 1980s in Afghan, when they were working against the former USSR’s occupation. Whose to say they still don’t work together?

  3. Sadam was a friend of the US till he wasnt.

    How much oil or other minerals does Siria have? That is the question which will define US policy. Oil addiction is a scary thing. More harmfull then even the big pharma drugs which are made from it.

  4. Watched maddow vs imhofe this evening

  5. in buenas aries; i’d forgotten how good it can feel to be out of the us. feel like i can breath again.

  6. I heard about the F18 rumor did not think much of it because it was from an Alex Jones worshiper.

    He also added the computer hajacking came from a Ausie worker at the US’s own Eshelon (sp) base in Australia.

    Some odd customer at work a few years back.

  7. Standard issue irish jokes in celebration of the day:

    Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an
    important meeting and couldn’t find a parking place. Looking up to
    heaven he said, “Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking
    Place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!”

    Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

    Paddy looked up again and said, “Never mind, I found one.”

    Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and says to the first man
    He meets, “Do you want to go to heaven?”

    The man said, “I do, Father.”

    The priest said, “Then stand over there against the wall.”

    Then the priest asked the second man, “Do you want to go to heaven?”

    “Certainly, Father,” was the man’s reply.

    “Then stand over there against the wall,” said the priest.

    Then Father Murphy walked up to O’Toole and said, “Do you want to go to heaven?”

    O’Toole said, “No, I don’t Father.”

    The priest said, “I don’t believe this. You mean to tell me that
    when you die you don’t want to go to heaven?”

    O’Toole said, “Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a
    group together to go right now”

    Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend, Finney.

    “Did you see the paper?” asked Gallagher. “They say I died!!”

    “Yes, I saw it!” replied Finney. “Where are ye callin’ from?”

    An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for
    speeding in Connecticut . The state trooper smells alcohol on the
    priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.

    He says, “Sir, have you been drinking?”

    “Just water,” says the priest.

    The trooper says, “Then why do I smell wine?”

    The priest looks at the bottle and says, “Good Lord! He’s done it
    again!”

    Walking into the bar, Mike said to Charlie the bartender, “Pour me a
    Stiff one – just had another fight with the little woman.”

    “Oh yeah?” said Charlie, “And how did this one end?”

    “When it was over,” Mike replied, “She came to me on her hands and
    knees.

    “Really,” said Charles, “Now that’s a switch! What did she say?”

    She said, “Come out from under the bed, you little chicken.”

    Flynn staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Mary.

    He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their
    upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he caught
    Himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.

    Managing not to yell, Flynn sprung up, pulled down his pants, and
    looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and
    bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and
    Began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw blood.

    He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed.

    In the morning, Flynn woke up with searing pain in both his head and
    Butt and Mary staring at him from across the room.

    She said, “You were drunk again last night weren’t you?”

    Flynn said, “Why you say such a mean thing?”

    “Well,” Mary said, “it could be the open front door, it could be the
    Broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly….it’s all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror.

  8. Doomy, yep, read it. If you recall, I did mention that folks should be getting their respective alternative communications methods in order. And it would be imprudent to believe the actual 9/2013 “go live” time frame. Expect them to go back in time in existing/archival data further and faster relative to the horsepower at their disposal. Such as this –

    – while effortlessly analyzing the real-time streams.

    Blank Reg was way ahead of his time.

  9. Hmmm. Now would probably be a good time to go fish dave’s pond. He’s far away and will never miss those fish. Eh, crap, I can’t even afford the gas to get to Albany.

  10. I was also eating a lot of sugar and refined white flour in a certain form

    Dah!!!

    the real proof modern meds is a joke Proctor and Gamble bought out one of the largest Vitamin companies New Chapter. hedging their bets ey?

  11. The F-18 is a navy fighter, so it is designed for carrier operation and task force protection. The F-15E is a true bomber than can carry a much heavier payload farther.

    The Israelis will use their one squadron, 25, of F-15I Ra’ams to drop the GBU-28, 5000-lb bunker-busters on Iran. True Love. The Koreans also have the F-15SK Slam Eagle.

  12. dave, have a 2-inch thick pampas grass-fed steak on me, bro.

    hey stitch, ya think the o-man gonna let those zionistas bomb their way into startin WWIII? screw that, it’s an election year, might be close, romney. besides, the sweed’s gonna revoke his peace prize.

  13. yeah, been loading up on that pastured beef, everything from the steaks to the livers to the lymph nodes. nothing goes to waste around me.

  14. If you get a chance, dave, visit Galidon restaurant in BA. My cousin owns and runs it. Can’t say for sure but they tell me its pretty good.

  15. No, but if you mention fishing, in any way, you may get more fishing stories than you bargained for.

  16. Yeah, an F15 goes farther, faster, meaner, because it isn’t constrained by having to be made suitable for carrier ops. However the FA18 does provide you with an opportunity to shit your pants, sooner, better, in the dark, and on the heaving deck of a ship.

  17. The problem with that song for me has always been the line they dont like no trumpet playing band. But they call themselves the sultans of swing? Its as if Mark Knopfler never actually listen to any swing before writing the song.

    the short verson of the above worthless and unimportant rant;

    I dont like Dire Straits
