Afghan massacre US soldier 'reluctant to serve' - Asia - World - The Independent

The US soldier accused of slaughtering 16 Afghan civilians saw his friend's leg blown off the day before the rampage, his lawyer said today.

John Browne also described his client as "mild-mannered" and said he had been surprised and reluctant to leave for Afghanistan on his fourth deployment.

So a mild-mannered guy who is fed up with America's wars and saw his comrade hurt has to kill 13 women and children?
