I saw on the news this morning that the Afghans are rioting over the 16 people who were killed by the US soldier and that they are calling for him to be beheaded.
Now what he did was abhorrent and unexplainable to anyone but the voices in his head. It is a crime and he should stand trial in OUR military court.
But the Afghans' response to this crime is the same as to anything else.
Some books that were desecrated by their own people were burnt. Riots and calls for beheading.
Sixteen people murdered. Riots and calls for beheading.
They want to stay in the stone age. Fine. We leave, our aid dollars leave, and they can go back to their caves and destroy each other.
