One thought on “

  1. From what we’ve heard, it seems likely this was not someone who saw Afghans or Muslims as hardly human and nor was it a soldier whose record suggested he might do something like this, but an apparently normal and responsible man whose humanity and self-control were shattered by something we can barely comprehend. It’s not even what has happened before, a unit with a culture that bred contempt for the locals egging one another on to vicious and murderous behaviour. Nor is this what inevitably happens to soldiers, American or from anywhere else.

    What we see as our humanity is fragile.
