This is the first and probably the last time I’ll link to InfoWars, but they have something that I tend to believe – sent to us by our buddy, Aunty Brat. A Marine who claims that he served with Eddie Ray Routh, the fellow who killed Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield the other night, says that Routh was a mechanic and never left the wire in Iraq – something I’ve suspected since the beginning. Aside from the fact that he was listed in Marine On Line as a unit armorer, according to some of you, folks who go around using PTS for an excuse for all of their bad behavior are usually POGs who never heard a shot fired in anger.
“After seeing this picture I just remembered this guy lived in the same barracks as me in 2007 in Camp Lejeune, N.C., he was definitely NOT a highly trained Marine he was a mechanic in for only about 4 years,” said the Marine.
“My friend deployed to Iraq with Eddie Routh and this guy never even went outside the wire, so the PTSD from combat as the news is saying is unlikely, and this guy was no highly trained Marine as they are also saying in the news,” he added.
The Marine also told us that Routh “was into drugs.”
I’m not saying that because InfoWars says it’s so, it’s the truth, I’m just saying it reinforces what I’ve thought was true since the beginning. Kyle and Littlefield were shot in the back, so I guess that’s one way of overcoming the “not highly trained” thing and reports that his sister said that he did it to steal the truck – not something someone suffering from PTS is likely to do, I would think.
By the way, if you’re inclined to go over to the InfoWars link, stay out of the comments unless you’re into that “war for empire” BS.
