Video captures Afghan bombing attack, 14 students die


www.usatoday.com

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A single-file line of school children walked past a military checkpoint Sunday as a bomb-loaded truck veered toward them and exploded, ending the lives of 14 young Afghans in a heartbreaking flash captured by a U.S. military security camera.
The video shows an SUV slowly weaving through sand bag barriers at a military checkpoint just as a line of school children, most wearing white caps, comes into view. They walk along a pathway between the street and a wall, several of them pausing for a few seconds in a group before moving forward again. The vehicle moves toward the security camera while the children walk in the opposite direction, nearly passing the SUV when the footage ends in a fiery blast.

I think it is a collosal shame that innocent citizens of Afghanistan should die like this. While I understand that the solution to the problem is not easy, given the quagmire that we are in, there should atleast be a strong condemnation of the incident since 14 school going children were killed. This is a dastardly terrorist attack that goes to show that terrorists have no morals and ethics and that they have no qualms about killing innocent people. I wonder how murdering school children furthers their cause.

There is no furtherment of a cause by killing innocents. Never has, and never will.

In today's world of tribal warfare, and even of the past, history has shown, and continues to show, that it is always the innocent people who pay the heavy price, no matter what the dispute, conflict, war, battle, defending, attack, retaliation or whatever they call it now..is about. It is ALWAYS the innocent people who take the most casualty.

And its even more of a disgrace when young innocent children are the victims.




Cheers!!!!
