On June 5, Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, pleaded guilty to 16 counts of murder in the massacre of 16 Afghan villagers, mostly children, in March last year. In no way do I condone his heinous act, but in my opinion, when Bales' foot was blown off, his Army career should have been over.

Sergeant Bales and tens of thousands of other patriotic men and women in uniform were failed by a government that attacked Afghanistan. We are now told the combat mission will end in 2014. That means there is still time to recycle our overstressed fighting forces one more time at least.
