Quote Umm Hufsah Replybullet Topic: A timeline of US atrocities in Afghanistan
    Posted: 06 May 2010 at 9:03am


'General McChrystal, commander of US forces in Afghanistan, acknowledges that US forces have killed civilians who meant them no harm. During a bi-weekly videoconference with US soldiers in Afghanistan, he was quite candid. "We've shot an amazing number of people and killed a number and, to my knowledge, none has proven to have been a real threat to the force," said General McChrystal. "To my knowledge, in the nine-plus months I've been here, not a single case where we have engaged in an escalation of force incident and hurt someone has it turned out that the vehicle had a suicide bomb or weapons in it and, in many cases, had families in it."

The list below describes, in part, the suffering and agony that people in Afghanistan have endured since April, 2009. To focus on this list doesn't excuse atrocities committed by Taliban fighters. It does indicate our own responsibility to urgently educate others and ourselves about a deeply disturbing pattern: US/NATO officials first distribute misleading information about victims of an attack and later acknowledge that the victims were unarmed civilians.

 Your copying and pasting is rather selective. If you do a search, you will find that your taliban heroes kill far more Afghan civilians than coalition forces... but then, thinking humans already know that.

It is better to Ignore the Ignorants folks who persists to be Ignorant to the facts quite will - fully and conveniently - happily dwelling in darkness and deception of main-stream media and supporting the disgusting, sick and illegal war.

Can you please provide any ref to a authentic source for that?
 
I keep visiting Afg quiet frequently, the local knowledge (People of Afg) don't support your claim.

It's better yet to ignore those ignorant folks who invent and falsely post claims that are shown to be the creation of a twisted imagination.

Of course, the people who are claiming that 'stop the war coalition' information is false, have no facts to support their claims because of their silly habitual dismissal of facts, they are left nothing but imaginations of how heroic their murderous and immoral governments are and how wrong are the people who opposes them and disagree with their illegal actions.

Of course those people who copy and paste from conspiracy promoting websites do so because it appeals to their need to believe in conspiracy theories. I've yet to see a single, verifiable fact that comes from your silly posts.
