Re: NATO Kills Six Children in Afghanistan AttackAug 30th, 2010
This explaination is simply silly and a cowardly way out.
What are the people in Afghanistan to do to avoid being targeted...stand and salute towards the sky when those mindless, `jittery` trigger-happy morons on watch, flying choppers loaded with ordinance come out of nowhere with intentions on bombing the souls regardless?
The damned youngsters could be playing marbles for all those targeting them know. Do they give a shyte? No. Neither do those in the White House give a shyte whos targeted. Its simply a matter of shoot, brag about and propagate it if a few Taliban gets wiped out and hide, deny and eventually `apologise` when the rest, mostly innocents are wiped out with them.
If this logic is acceptable to most here in the West then we should shut our ****ing traps when the same medicine is given back....9/11 be damned.
Why don't we hear you shed tears when your heros gas schoolgirls?
We in the West are hypocrites for this indifference.
Where's your indignation about this:
Afghan school girls 'poisoned' - Central & South Asia - Al Jazeera English (external - login to view)
Do we not expect more than the image of someone hunched over before a bomb is dropped? If we don't, we really should.
I don't know what was happening or their reaction. I wasn't there, but if I had an idea bombs were coming my way you can bet the image would be one of someone moving on to safer real estate
