Apparently the Taliban have sworn revenge for this. Great job buddy, I'm here, in Helmand now, and will be for another 5 months or so. It's been pretty calm where I am, I'm hoping it stays this way, but somehow I doubt it will after this.
I cannot condone any act like this ever for any reason. There are rules for reasons, this guy snapping didn't just go out and kill 16 people. He endangered all his friends who are still there, he endangered every coalition member in the country, he damaged relations between all coalition countries and Afghanistan, etc, etc, etc. The list could go on, he got his rocks off and killed a bunch of people but obviously didn't think about what would happen because of it. I just hope any military in the area now or coming this way stay safe.
