Afghanistan Shootings No Mystery

According to ABC News, shrinks can't seem to fathom why a U.S. soldier went on a shooting spree in Afghanistan. Only one of them hits on the probable cause:
Lieberman said a buildup of resentment could have also led to the soldier's alleged unprovoked actions.
Gee, you think? It's too early to reach firm conclusions about this awful incident and there's certainly no excuse for this soldier's actions. But it stands to reason that after years of serving in Afghanistan and trying to help its intransigent population; countless killings of U.S. soldiers perpetrated by the Afghan soldiers and policeman we've trained; Karzai's anti-American pronouncements; the world turning a blind eye to the Taliban's brutality; and the recent rioting and killing over the accidental Koran burnings; this guy simply lost it.

We've reached a breaking point in Afghanistan and it's time to get out, now.

First, we open a military base in Vietnam. Then we send Arnold Schwarzenegger to Afghanistan to say "I'll be back!" After that, we can get out safely.
