Does the US Government have any responsibility for the soldier that snapped and killed 16 innocent Afghan villagers?
I’m speaking about the US Soldier who. on March 11, 2012, went house to house in an Afghan village murdering 9 children and 7 adults, and setting fire to their homes.
It would be politically and militarily convenient to just assign all the responsibility to the soldier. He was a weak link, and when the pressure got too great, he broke. But how much responsibility do you think we all share for setting up a condition where a small, all volunteer force deploys over and over again into such a politically confused situation over a period of 10 years and counting?
