Yes, troops are trained to kill, but not to murder. There is a huge world of difference you know!
...

I appreciate the difference you are presenting here but I have to tell you that killing is killing. When you have overcome a person's compunction against killing, programmed them to be willing to look someone in the eye and kill him, the damage is already done.

Its time to take responsibility for the monster that has been created.
Serve the Emperor!

That's when selective recruitment is important isn't it. In times of high troop turnover, this isn't always possible as we saw in Vietnam and now in the last 2 campiagns.

I agree  ...........

I think the US senators and congressmen should be the first ones at the front line  ..........

Might get some sense then ........

Maybe not them at the front line but their children instead, if they're old enough. Betcha it stops fairly quickly then...if it ever starts in the first place that is.

It seems a bit strange to blame him for doing what he is trained to do: Kill.

Attack the institutio ...

There is something in what you say indeed , he is product of  society and institutions........product of sick environment.

Prosecution should be done from top down but that will not happen unless is case of third world country of course.

But let's not forget about personal responsibility too , nothing can excuse this man from heinous crime he has committed.

It's gotta stop somehow...what better motivation than to put their kids where other parents, from both sides, are forced to and see how they like it!
Way I see it, we can't blame Obama though. He just inherited the mess. At least, the combat vrigades are out of Iraq now....and the drawdown in the 'ghan will start soon. That'll be good, hope my nephew get's out intact and alive.
