my point is that I'm sick and tired of the double standard when it comes to the
outrage directed only at American Soldiers while that woman's own people get
a pass for doing much worse to their own kids.
a bomb to their own kid, and express more outrage and riot over a book
being burned than they do blowing up their own kids. So I have just a bit
of a hard time feeling much sympathy for the woman in the news clip.
And Rock, don't be such a jerk. I'm not supporting abortion. I'm playing with Ampat's head. Truth is I do think it's weird how people here don't support abortion, but yet they'll verbally support the idea of killing people for being Muslim. Either murder is wrong or it isn't wrong.

I don't challenge you on the muslim stuff, usually, but a 2 year old is a baby.
The soldier's lawyer was on the Today show this morning. This guy had half his foot blown off and suffered a brain injury in previous combat.
It sounds like he's got a decent lawyer, who is looking out for his rights. I hope at some point, someone does a complete neurological workup on him. There are rumors that the guy had marital problems and a substance abuse problem, both of which his lawyer denies. If he didn't have any problems in his home life, and hadn't shown any signs of instability before, there could be something going on literally in his head.
If they don't find something medically wrong with him, he is probably going to get the death penalty.
