After US Strikes, Afghans Describe
"Tractor Trailers Full of Pieces of Human Bodies"

It also bears remembering that the US track record of thoroughly "investigating" US massacres is pathetic. The UN said there was convincing evidence that last year's US attack on the village of Azizabad in western Afghanistan killed 90 civilians, but the military only acknowledged 30 civilian deaths.
Jessica Barry, a spokesperson for the ICRC said, "With more troops coming in, there is a risk that civilians will be more and more vulnerable."


Comment to the article above...
Of course, the USA could never inflict a civilian casualty.
Of course, it is the Taliban (or whatever the "enemy" of the day happens to be.
How can anyone question our motives ? Aren't we god's people ?
Like the nursery rhyme says about little girls. "We are made of sugar, spice, and everything nice". Why can't those Afghans (Iraqis - Iranians - Palestinians - Cubans - Venezuelans etc etc etc) see this.
The USA is sick, sick, sick. As a people, we have no shame. It has always been thus, and will always be so.

US Drone Kills at Least 10 in South Waziristan

Senate Will Move on Hate Crimes Bill; Critics Claim Bill Simply Unnecessary
“In addition to posing a litany of constitutional problems, today’s legislation alarmingly overturns the cornerstone of equality in our justice system by placing a higher value on one life over another,” said Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) on the House floor. “In no way could I support a bill that more harshly punishes criminals who kill a homosexual, transvestite or transsexual than criminals who kill a police officer, a member of the military, a child, or a senior citizen.”
