Geezus.

END THE DAMN WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is NOT justifiable...EVER.

OBAMA...PLEASE END IT.

BUT, if the story is true this does not solve the underlying problem which would still exist:

US soldiers willing to execute children.

However, let's see if this Taliban propoganda first shall we. After all we know that the Taliban will chop teachers heads off in front of the teachers family for having the audicity to teach girls.

Well this is really really SAD but after almost 10 years of war i think the soldiers become tolerant of the violence, stress and psychological trauma. What im trying to say is that they don't have any feelings anymore.

lol, saudi arabia lol
, Saudi arab govt are american puppets, while poor and middle class of saudi arabia suffer, the princes of arabia have betrayed the downtrodden ,exploited muslim world

Saudi arabia will face the wrath of allah, but first , it will be USA who will face allah's wrath to the highest extreme ever. as for freedom for women , you mean freedom to be raped , yep , USA has the maximum no. of rapes in the world , yep , women do have the freedom to be raped .
ultimately , i promise you the jewish masons who rule the world and their kabala rabbis will be destroyed in the great fire , they will ignite themselves , what remains to be seen is how long are they able to keep Russia in their control

You are probably right, however the news articles are saying that the "children" were 10-14 and the picture I am replying too shows children that are under 9.

Murdering anyone is wrong no matter if it's a baby or a 6'5" 250 pound man - no life is more valuable than another, but and here is the scary thing - the picture you are showing was meant to nurture a manipulated emotional reaction.

Many of the news stories are reporting the children murdered were 10-14 years of age, not the 8 and 4 year old pictured.

"Children" at 10-14 are capable of and do carry bombs, shoot guns and use various other war tactics just like adults.

"Children" at 9 in a war torn poor country are every bit as capable as an adult at fighting/killing.

We are use to children being children and cannot, in this cushy spoiled American life perceive of a "child" capable of guerrilla warfare but they do.

We Americans have never experienced living day to day in a war torn third world country.

I work in a nice suburban office that is being outsourced and watching the war games people play just to survive a cruddy 9-5 job a couple weeks longer than their cube partner is amazing.

I can not imagine how people would be in a situation that demanded doing horrible stuff to another human being/soul to "survive".

If this story is true, it is horrible, bad, wrong, disqusting & vile.

BUT

Possibly someone or a group of someones is trying to nurture a reaction world wide.

Humanity has been manipulated so much in the past.

Now the world is possibly being manipulated against America, by who is what you all should be asking and why?

I read these articles and besides the gut wrenching sickness of yet more children being victimized, I couldn't help shake the feeling that we (Americans) are being set up in the worldwide view to show we are bullies - somethings coming - it's the old "let's make so and so (America) look bad so that there is an "excuse" to "put the bully in it's place" - another war tactic.

Again, I've got the feeling that yes, we should pull out of Afghanistan - we have no business warring on any other nation.

I myself am against war period.

I protested against the war in Vietnam as a teenager.
I protested against the war in Iraq when most everyone was shouting "support our troops yahoo!"
and I am protesting this war.

War is not nice.
War is wrong.

But wake up people, I don't at this point trust much of any of the major news media, haven't we been manipulated enough?

Demand we pull out of Afghanistan and not participate in ANY WAR!

If everyone all 300 million + people in America would agree to a day, put down their remote, put away the Twilight Novel and EVERYONE OF US, together, marched into the Senate and Congressinal Houses and demanded a stop to this nonsense we just might have a chance.

We either hang together or die alone.

Again, I wonder - news lately is reported to accure a reaction - a grand manipulation of the population. You all keep falling for this time and time again - this time with this story I can't help but feel America is being set up worldwise for a slap down, a big slap down.

The fifty million dollar question is by who?

Well stated, friend. People forget that propoganda is propoganda, no matter who the instigator. I fear there is a coming event in the not-too-distant future that will harm the Western World. Stories like these are serving a dark agenda that many people have been distracted from.

If you were told 20 years ago that American/Western civilisation was on the brink of collapse, how would you respond? How about 10 years ago? 5 years ago? Last year? How about this year?

Indeed. All is not what it seems.

Bollocks, simply bollocks.

This is my first post, if it gets flagged then it gets flagged. It is what it is. I proudly stand in the trenches, once as a Soldier and now again as support.

We are, I believe, more intelligent here than the community at large. Literacy counts when trying to decipher any article and it always better to go to the source material and not internet re-posts. Simple minded individuals are quick to jump on the US Military for anything. Both sited articles clearly state that it was NOT US forces involved in this tragedy.

The far left and the far right are both too quick to blame our Men and Women in the Armed Forces; mostly those that never had the balls serve. Both articles clearly state that simple fact NOT US FORCES involved.

Quotes and references are below; please both references are from the same article posted above.


"There is also evidence to strongly indicate that there were insurgents in the area at the time." - Separately, Thursday, police said Taliban insurgents had beheaded six people for co-operating with the government in Uruzgan province.

NATO has denied its forces were involved, suggesting "non-military Americans" had returned fire in self-defence.

www.google.com...

UN special representative in Afghanistan Kai Eide said in a statement that the preliminary UN investigation showed "strong indication" that there were insurgents in the area at the time of the attack.

Although insurgents are responsible for the deaths of far more civilians, those blamed on coalition forces spark the most resentment and undermine the fight against the militants.

A statement issued Thursday by the Afghan National Security Directorate said the government investigation showed no Afghan forces were involved and "international forces from an unknown address came to the area and without facing any armed resistance, put 10 youth in two rooms and killed them.

news.yahoo.com...

(This was nothing more than an attempt by a cowardly enemy who relentlessly and ruthlessly aim to destroy Western Civilization.

The extremists are the ones putting bombs on children and tossing acid in the face of teenage girls who only want an education.

9-11 was not Viet Nam, it was Pearl Harbor.)

I can't find any reference to such an atrocity except for reprints of this article.


I find it hard to believe that this actually happened.


I hope it's not true, but it's now almost accepted history that troops acted this way in Vietnam, so why not in the Middle East?

I'm not in the forces and can't imagine what it does to the mind to be in the scenario the troops find themselves in. But i can be pretty certain that whatever i think i know, or however i think i'd behave, i'm probably wrong.

So i don't find this hard to believe. Right, wrong and normal is unfortunately relative to your circumstance.

This is totally disgusting.

Americans should be ashamed of thier armed forces.

It's made me even more against the war than i already was, if that's even possible.

How can people possibly try to defend or make excuses for these actions?

I believe it happened. Like they are going to own up to it. Yeah by the way we shot a load of kids.

So the star and flag fest continues? Most things on here against our troops are speculative at best, and horrific propoganda at worse. But if it gets you through the day, hating the very people who sacrifice on your behalf, I guess you deserve the world you have now. Sooner or later this thread will go away as new propoganda is released, perhaps the time spent waiting for it could be better spent searching for other lies to add to the next fest. Ah well......guess there is a reason to protect the weak, with the reasoning explained by some people on here, I wonder how they have made it this far in their life.

"They conducted this operation on their own without informing any security or local authorities of Afghanistan," the statement said."

It does not say that US troops did this.


so if it was mercenaries contracted by the american forces would it make a difference?

but anyway, i think you make a valid point. those people were obviously killed be non-american magical dancing monkeys who want to protect their forests back home from big bad jihadists.

It is so easy to pass judgement on people from the safety of your living room from behind a keyboard. Perhaps a cup of coffee, maybe a glass of vino. Oh how wonderful to have all of this insite from tha safety of home. I wonder, how many of you have even traveled extenively in this country, let alone been anywhere else in the world. How about turning off the t.v. and experiencing life. How many of you would die on your knees from ignorance from a lack of understanding how the real world works. Do people do bad things? Every day of the week......do our troops, sure they do. However, without experiencing the military, judging, defaming and criminalizing our troops from home just makes you pathetic excuses with no real understanding.

1. I wasn't there

2. You wasn't there

3 10 -12 year olds carry AK47's also over there and kill people.

4. My uncle was a Green beret in Vietnam and told me he had to shoot a kid that was about 12 years old because he was thowing grenades into troop carriers and running to the next one. My uncle shot him and most likely saved all the guys in his truck.

5. War is hell.

Make all the excuses you want but the bottom line is this...

I do not believe for one minute that our troops would handcuff and kill children. That is BS straight up.
