AIR POWER IN AFGHANISTAN March 20, 2011

Posted by wmmbb in CENTRAL ASIA.

Why is it that the brutalities of the Taliban are condemned as they should be, but the slaughter from the air (and the other examples of war crimes perpetrated by the invaders) are not?

Tom Engelhardt’s most recent article on the murder reined down from the skies in Afghanistan, more often than not and predictably resulting in the deaths of non combatants, not excluding children collecting wood, is read by Ralph Pochoda.

The lawlessness of the blood-soaked “conquistadors” is staggering to behold. The latest example includes the payment of bribes to free a suspected murderer in Pakistan and so avoid criminal indictment.

ELSEWHERE:

The Raymond Davis story should not be forgotten. The Intercept reports that thousands rallied in Pakistan to protest against drone strikes and the release of Davis.

Ummm…..did you get hacked by some kind of bot? None of the above makes any sense in English. Try again?

Thanks Chris. I grant the first sentence did not make sense in English or any other language for that matter. It might pass muster now.

The common thread is the lack of concern with war crimes and indictable criminal behavior with respect to Raymond Davis.

American government. Not americans. Most people don’t support what is going on.

The polls which I believe 63% of respondents opposing the continuation of the war in Afghanistan suggest you are right.
