First off, if you have a weak stomach do not look at these photos.

Among the men of Bravo Company, the notion of killing an Afghan civilian had been the subject of countless conversations, during lunchtime chats and late-night bull sessions. For weeks, they had weighed the ethics of bagging “savages” and debated the probability of getting caught. Some of them agonized over the idea; others were gung-ho from the start. But not long after the New Year, as winter descended on the arid plains of Kandahar Province, they agreed to stop talking and actually pull the trigger.

But just to refresh you guys memory, this is the guy who threw the shoe at George Bush awhile back. Hit the jump to see the original shoe thrower aim for the dome of GW.

This is a very serious story about the realities of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. These young men are turned into killing machines and are expected to come back home and adjust to normal life.
This report highlights that many soldiers are having a difficult time doing this and the evidence shows that the are suffering post traumatic stress from long engagements. Our so-called political leaders need to stop all the cat and mouse politics and begin to address the needs of these young men and women.
