Ahmad Wali died in a bomb blast in Kandahar city on 25 August and Samim was killed in a suicide attack in Kabul on 15 September. Both men left grieving families with little capacity to cope on their own.
Wali and Samim’s families said they had received no support from the government or aid agencies apparently because both men were killed in explosions allegedly perpetrated by anti-government forces.
Welcome to the "living collateral damage" in Afghanistan, courtesy of this bloody and immoral war, the outcomes of which were:
1. to control the drug trade (mission accomplished on that one), and
2. to install the pipelines which were to control Eurasian oil (that objective is no where near in sight.)
