Horror and stresses of Iraq duty led US sergeant to kill comrades

Everyone – the father, the son, the army – agrees that three tours of Iraq drove ­Sergeant John Russell to the edge.

But what pushed him over, into shooting dead five of his comrades in an army that was his life for 16 years, is a matter of bitter dispute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Men and women military personnel who come from decent homes with moral values, once deployed to Iraq and/or Afghanistan, recognized pretty quickly that the US occupations of both countries do not put us on the right side of history.

That's a pretty ugly thing to have to live with.
