…in the mass murder in Afghanistan. These would be the members of our Ruling Class who sent a brain-injured soldier back into battle for yet another tour of duty (his fourth!)and all the stresses it entailed, rather than give him an honorable discharge, a huge thank you, and all the rest and therapy he needed after his injury.
Our troops are flesh and blood, not movie action figures. Sending this valiant and deeply self-sacrificial all volunteer force back into battle again and again and again and again in order to maintain the empire–and in such a massive exercise in futility as our Afghan experiment in nation-building–is the real crime here. Something like this was bound to happen.
So now even the Afghanis want us gone. So why are we still there?
Leave Afghanistan. Now.
