Rick, this is unacceptable.

Rick, this is unacceptable. You should be ashamed of yourself! The alleged actions of one person is no cause for you to bash our military who are out there protecting your right to free speech.

Pull your head out of the sand man.

Rick, this cartoon is

Rick, this cartoon is perfectly acceptable. You made no reference to the guy who (allegedly) killed 16 or so civilians, nor are you "bashing" our military. Keep up the good work.

I don't see this as a bashing

I don't see this as a bashing of our military, only the stark reality of what combat can do to our fighting men and women. Not all combatants suffer from PTSD but there is a very significant number that do. I appreciate this cartoon for what it says and for Rick drawing attention to this problem.

Not good at all, our soldiers

Not good at all, our soldiers follow orders. Make it Obama or Uncle Sam and it true. The Sargent that killed Afghan civilians acted on his own. I would also like to point out PTSD was not the likely cause, TBI combined with other mental issues are more likely. Day after day the Commander in Chief sends our soldiers out to be killed and maimed in Afghanistan for little or no gain. Ben Laden is dead, bring them home.
