This cartoon is a classic example of why our ethical standing in the global community has dropped so low.
We should view the actions of this soldier no different than if he had committed these atrocities against americans on american soil.
His actions were clearly not part of our war on terrorists. There is no acceptable excuse, including an unwanted 3rd tour or a "boo-boo" on his head, for mass murder against innocent women and children.
The correct word is 'outrage" not "irony".
Our global goal is to prove our role as world leaders against terror. Having one of our own commit terror must be dealt with swiftly and definitively to prove to the world that these actions are wrong no matter who commits them.
