Murder

I don’t mean to offend Christians, especially Christian warmongers, but Jesus H. Christ! Is this the best we can do?

KABUL (Reuters) – The United Nations said on Tuesday it had found convincing evidence that 90 Afghan civilians, most of them children, were killed in air strikes by U.S.-led coalition forces in western Afghanistan last week.

“Investigations by UNAMA (United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan) found convincing evidence, based on the testimony of eyewitnesses, and others, that some 90 civilians were killed, including 60 children, 15 women and 15 men,” U.N. Special Envoy to Afghanistan Kai Eide said in a statement.

With the very best high tech electronic equipment, with the very best military hardware, with the very best trained military personnel, with the very latest, state of the art intelligence gathering apparatus, the very best we can do is to completely fuck up and kill a bunch of innocent children. Am I the only one who thinks that this is insanity? This has to be stopped. It has to be stopped now. Not next year or in 2010. We are killing perfectly innocent people just like you and me in an ungodly and horrific quest for economic power and energy resources.

Basically what we are saying to these women and children is, “We’re sorry, but we may have to kill you in order to achieve our agenda. But you’re just poor people in a third world nation so we don’t really care that much. We hope you understand”.

We have gone too far. And anyone who doesn’t see it is either an imbecile, a moron or a die hard Bush baby and traitor. I am disgusted with the American people for not stopping this genocide.

    Dang! Once again we seem to be in, at least partially, disagreement.

    I view the engagement in Afghanistan as necessary and justified. If the US had committed the recources I am reasonably sure it would have been over and done with and the outcome would have been the destruction of bin Laden’s bunch.

    Iraq, that a whole other horse.

  2. Brian Says:

    I agree that we could and should have committed the necessary resources to get the job done quickly and efficiently. But we didn’t. And the result is the hit and miss effort that ends in tragedy for many innocent victims. I find it hard to believe that Osama is a goal because if it is, we have failed miserably for 7 years now. How much longer?

  3. Buffalo Says:

    I would have thought, given the amount of money on his head, someone would have narked him long ago. Obviously I was wrong. And, in the interest of fairness, I don’t really know what they are facing on the ground. I do know they are playing skip across the border crap, (shades of Nam, eh?) and that makes it difficult.

    Canada has a large contingent of peace keepers on the ground. There are gold stars in many windows in CA.

    Yes, there are innocent victims. There always are. It is tragic and there is no answer for them.

    I’m not a war monger. I’ve been against Iraq long before the first boot hit the ground. I am, however, coming to believe bin Laden’s bunch, the Taliban, must be put out of business. They are freakin’ crazy. Their insanity will continue until they are ended.

  4. Brian Says:

    Agree again, Buf. The Taliban are crazy. And dangerously radical. And religious fanatics. And they are not alone. Idi Amin was a murdering brute. Mugabe is too. The murderers in Burma are too. And that ridiculous looking Kim Jong Il, or whatever his name is, in North Korea doesnt mind that the people in his screwed up country are starving.

    But we aren’t there. Because having a crazy leader is not enough to warrant help from the US. Is Al Quaeda part of the Taliban? Are they the same? If they’re different, why are we fighting the Taliban in their own country. I’m getting a little confused about who and what the enemy is here.

    “I’m getting a little confused about who and what the enemy is here.”

    And that seems to be a common thread of our least successful military endeavors.

  6. buffalo Says:

    “I have seen the enemy and he are us.” That’s probably a paraphrase rather than Pogo’s exact words.

  7. Mockingbird Says:

    Air-strikes which kill innocent civilians are the reason why the survivors are so hell-bent of revenge. This easily drives them to become religious fanatics cum suicide bombers.

  8. Paul Says:

    Buffalo, why do you assume Bin laden is still alive? His silence since 2001 is deafening. He was on dialysis then. Even with the best of care since he would be lucky to be alive now. Even a transplant would not explain his seeming good health through invisibility. You need to look a bit deeper into the history of the Afghan war, including statements made by some Americans in diplomatic circles well before the magical “surprise” of the 911 event. And the Taliban were NOT “Bin Ladens bunch” as you put it, and still aren’t. Thats FOXNews talk and you can obviously do better.
