Not good, not good at all

Much worse than Koran burning:
Witnesses told Reuters they saw a group of U.S. soldiers arrive at their village in Kandahar's Panjwayi district at around 2 am, enter homes and open fire. An Afghan minister earlier told Reuters that a lone U.S. soldier had killed up to 16 people when he burst into homes in villages near his base in the middle of the night... NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said it had detained one of its soldiers and that an investigation was under way. It said the soldier reportedly went to more than one village near his base. "I cannot explain the motivation behind such callous acts, but they were in no way part of authorized ISAF military activity," ISAF deputy commander Lt. Gen. Adrian Bradshaw said in the statement.

Can we please have a mandatory dope-slap for anyone who says "They hate us for our freedom"?

Hearts and minds, indeed.

And after two such unmitigated disasters and several smaller ones in the making, beyond all human comprehension, there are supposedly intelligent people in this country champing at the bit for a third major chance at utter failure.

We are in the grip of institutional insanity. America, land of the crazed and home of the raving.
