You Don't Have to Go Home, But You Can't Stay Here

Over the weekend, a US soldier, identified so far only by his rank as a staff sergeant, left his base in Afghanistan.

He went to several Afghan homes, and shot sixteen Afghans - nine of them children. According to the BBC, several of the children were killed by single shots to the head. There is also evidence that some were set on fire after they were shot.

Five or so others are being treated for wounds, and after his little outing the soldier returned to his base and turned himself in.

I think it's time we left. We have stayed too long for any good we are doing.

Let us go.
