A guard at a children's hospital in the Afghan capital of Kabul opened fire on the staff on Thursday morning, killing three American doctors and wounding two others, according to officials.


Okay, tasteless, classless and lowlife doesn't touch this, if the details are as they're being reported right now. It's a CHILDREN'S Hospital, but the guard seemed to care little for that.


Torkystani said the attacker, who was a member of the Afghan Police Protection Force and who had been assigned to guard the hospital, had been wounded and was in custody. At midday, he was in surgery under heavy police guard in the same medical facility where he had launched the attack.

According to Afghan police officials, the attacker was a member of the Afghan Police Protection Force assigned to guard the hospital. A BBC journalist in Afghanistan reported that the assailant hailed from the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad.


Wonderful.... Sounds like an important group of security...until they start shooting their protectees of course. That's just rude.

We really need to get ALL our people out of there. Yesterday, IMHO. Whatever was possible for something positive there, expired quite some time ago.

It was just reported on radio news that the scumbag killed himself after the attack. I hope he did but I hope it was painful for him. Good riddance to bad rubbish if you ask me.

A childrens hospital???

I hope that the surgery is performed by the same colleagues as those poor doctors who perished under his hate spitten bullets is "corrective" surgery if you see what I mean?

The bastard should be maimed for life


This guy has probably been brainwashed into thinking he will be a Martyr and have 70 virgins awaiting him...
... Boy is he in for a surprise "IF" he wakes up from his surgery...

WE The Western world should have kept our boots and noses out of Afghanistan right from the very beginning.

Kindest respects

Agreed completely.

I only hope that anyone beating their chest in anger is equally enthusiastic about protesting US state terror involved with murdering men, women and children non-combatants via missile drones. I only hope that anyone beating their chest in anger is equally enthusiastic about protesting US state terror involved in kidnapping, secret prisons, torture, murder, rape, child rape, robbery, theft and smuggling contraband.

We lit the fire of terrorism in the middle east. It's only natural to get burned from time to time.

In my personal opinion, every act of evil doesn't require a comparison for relativism. This guy shot up doctors at a children's hospital. Aside from shooting up a bus full of Nuns, it doesn't get more evil and low life than this.

Some acts stand all by themselves, without relative comparisons. I'd say the slaughter of doctors by their guard more than qualifies as one.

My son spent several years in Afghanistan. The moral 'standards' of Middle East culture are....different than what we have.
It would take a few generations of brainwashing to change the belief system they've lived by for hundreds of years.
If they were in our country, the majority of them would be serving life sentences in prison for what they do every day as an accepted way of life.

I tend to agree, actually. My history course was just going over the meaning and definition of Total War in the context of World War I and World War II, but across the 19th and 20th centuries in general. That's what this would represent. Total War. Civilians don't matter. Women don't matter. Kids don't matter. Everyone is an enemy because everyone interacts to support the war effort. The basic definition of it.

If they want total war..it's a shame we couldn't throw them a little as we're leaving that country over the next several months. Then again, I'd just be happy with leaving. Quickly. Blow the equipment in place, destroy the bases and right down to the runways we built. Leave them what they had when we arrived...and let them return to the raging civil war we interrupted.

For heaven's sake give the Taliban their own little bit of land in Pakistan and let them fester with their hatred of the rest of the world and hopefully die out. They are one of the nastiest groups on this planet and one of the most ignorant and ignorance is what they thrive on.

what do the taliban have to do with the hospital shooting? The shooter was not taliban, rather he was a guard...on the side of the government that the US helped install.

I totally agree with your post Nugs, however, personally I would use the words "cultural differences" instead of moral standards... (Although I DID read that you added Middle East culture...)

Each and every single one of us people on this great big planet have different morals as opposed to others... and some people DONT even have morals at all... IMO?

But then again... not an easy one... Sadly

Kindest respects

Yeah? What does this have to do with the Taiban? This was one of the trusted Afghan's who turned on the hospital, one of the US trained Afghan's who decided to shoot doctors, not the Taliban.

I happen to see quite a bit of cause for what we initially did. I don't agree with having made a full war of it...however, Usama Bin Laden was on US and Western lists to get, years before 9/11, and for a lot more than one morning's action against our nation. He also, for the world to hear, declared war on us well before Bush took office. The Taliban got what they asked for in 2001. I just don't think it ever had to extend beyond that year for having been won in November/December.

Some see sympathy with the Taliban fighters. I see people I hope kill each other off to the last man. I don't mean the Afghani people, either. All in all, history and more recent events show the Taliban to have started with Arab more than Afghan people and still carries that way. A minor distinction in some circles, but night and day to folks over there to read the history back into the 80's on it.

Opinions vary tho...

The Taliban represent the religious ferocity of the Islamic RELIGION....They exist because we in the west have been trying to stomp them into compliance with our own Judaeo/Christian system of beliefs.
WE USE FORCE OF ALL KINDS...MILITARY, MONETARY, AND POLITICAL, AS WELL AS BOTH COVERTLY AND OVERTLY.
Fact is it is we who are the terrorists.............
This guard along with many others who have turned on the attackers with whom they seemingly allied themselves at first....is a Taliban by his actions...taking part in the terror campaign to rid the country of the social and military makeover we are attempting to impose.......
Whether he was always such is immaterial....

Your country kill people in the name of Democracy, I really don't see the difference between either. You's are both as bad as each other. The only difference is your country find ways to justify murder.

Sorry PEACEMAKER... I have much difficulty in reading and understanding your stance on what you have just posted?

Could you honestly say "STUFF IT" when it comes to health care to INNOCENT CHILDREN... regardless of what ethnic, cultural or religious differences adults have?... especially in a zone hit be years of war?

These doctors were from a non profit organisation called Cure International (however they are a christian charity so maybe this did not please whatever beliefs the guard was brainwashed with)...

Cure International is a non-profit organisation founded in 1998, based in Pennsylvania and working in 29 countries including Afghanistan.

It describes itself as an "unapologetically Christian organisation" on its website, adding that it offers "treatment regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, or ability to pay".

Its hospitals and health programmes specialise in treating children with conditions including clubfoot, cleft lips, burn injuries and brain diseases.

Cure International took over the hospital in west Kabul in 2005 at the invitation of the Afghan government, and runs obstetrics, gynaecology, pathology and surgery departments as well as training schemes for doctors and nurses.

May I ask you these 2 simple questions please :

DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN OR YOUNG CHILDREN IN YOUR FAMILY AND HOW WOULD YOU REACT IF YOU WERE IN A SITUATION WHERE THOSE CHILDREN OF YOURS OR YOUR FAMILY WERE IN THAT HOSPITAL?

Kindest respects

Ok just to restate what i was trying to say. For the record I'm not supporting the poor health care to the children. Children are a priority and if I was in a position that I could help a child more than my own life then the child will come first. What I was trying to say is, here we are sending doctors over to the country to help out yet the people of that country couldn't give a damn that we are providing top notch doctors for their kids. If that country and it's people see a foreign doctor as a target then why not just stop sending the doctors

The three doctors that were killed I'm sure they went to afghan knowing they are going to be helping kids. I bet the last thing they expected was to be shot in a hospital.

If a countries government can't help protect foreign doctors helping out their people then why should we bother. But hey that's my view I'm entitled to it. Sorry if it upsets people I'll keep my mouth shut next time when I want to voice my views. Slate me as you wish
