Dear Commons Community,
Yesterday there was another tragedy in Afghanistan perpetrated by American troops. A lone American soldier in the middle of the night went from house to house killing sixteen Afghanistan civilians including nine children while they slept. This horror comes on the heels of American soldiers urinating on enemy corpses and the burning of Korans. These are devastating acts that will incur the wrath of many Afghanistan and Arab peoples for decades to come. No matter what good we have done in this region, we are seen by many as outsiders who disrespect and defile their religion, culture and people.
We need to get our troops home as soon as possible. We have killed most of the Al-Qaeda leadership which I believe was our original mission. Bring the troops home!!!
