I have a relative in the Armed Forces. One of his close friends is an officer posted stateside who assigns soldiers and sailors for short-term assignments overseas, and he'd told my relative that he's been approached many, many times over the years by people who want to get to the Middle East so they can "get their kill." These are Americans who simply want to shoot someone - not an insurgent or enemy soldier - just someone, and get away with it. Iraq and Afghanistan give them the best chance to just shoot some man, woman, or child who is standing on the side of the road. Then they come home - to us.
