    His family are heart-broken and I truly feel bad for all of them, including the soldier, Srg. Bales. Pray for him and his family.

    Come on man he did four tours of combat in Iraq and in Afghanistan.. What do you think happens when you serve all those tours, The guilty party should also be President Bush, Obama, Secretary of defends and all those dam general who gave the commend to kill, murder is murder, and they should also be held accountable. The all voluntary military has been abuse to no end, cutting personal and not promoting creates hostilities in the ranks. This solder did not want to go back to combat but he was order to do so. You know the judge and jury will find him guilty they have been order to so. The Afghanistan are going to go war against the US government because of this, just wait and see. Remember Viet Nam they turn against and us also, who took the blame the US military that's the good old American way.
