"We were walking, I was holding my grandson's hand, then there was a loud noise and everything went white. When I opened my eyes, everybody was screaming. I was lying metres from where I had been, I was still holding my grandson's hand but the rest of him was gone. I looked around and saw pieces of bodies everywhere. I couldn't make out which part was which."
The Afghanis do not hate us "...because we are free."
They hate us because we are murdering their children, their brothers, their sisters, mothers, and friends in the name of Western oil pipelines.
And this continued aerial bombardment guarantees two things, and two things only.
First, there will be one hell of a lot of "collateral damage", i.e., killing infants, kids, women, the elderly, and the medically fragile who just want to live their lives.
Secondly, it will radicalize those left standing even further against the installed puppet government which the US is desperately attempting to prop up through the use of these airstrikes.
Someone in the Pentagon, the white house, or congress really should have remembered, when (allegedly) "planning" the Afghanistan campaign, that no country, in spite of its fire power, has ever been able to win what is essentially a ground war from the air.
That is precisely the situation in which the US and NATO find themselves Afghanistan.
It should remind you of a military conflict from which the US and NATO should have taken note, but didn't. That conflict was the Viet Nam War.
Ignorance and stupidity, coupled with magical thinking, should be painful. It's a damned shame it isn't.
