Sergeant Robert Bales, Accused Afghan Shooter

The shooter has been identified as Robert Bales, who the news is suggesting may have had PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder after watching a friend of his have his leg blown off.

War is hell.

It’s hard for me to understand why this man would kill men, women and children and it’s harder yet to figure out how he did it in such a short time and then how he set fire to some of the victims.  Then walked back to his base, laid down on the ground outside for a bit then got up and with hands held high handed over his weapon.

Some are saying it’s because he had a head injury and others will blame the PTSD, but I noticed someone saying that soldiers from other countries serving over in Afghanistan don’t have the same responses- for example shooting other people- as American soldiers do.

It’s all very sad.
