    Police chief confirms 9 children killed in ISAF raid. - Free Online Library

    ASADABAD (PAN): The chief of police in eastern Kunar province on Wednesday confirmed that nine children had been killed in a NATO-led airstrike the previous day.

    Residents of Manogi district on Tuesday said the airstrike killed as many as 10 children as they collected firewood in Nangalam valley.

    "Nine children were killed and one was injured in the ISAF raid yesterday," Khalil Ullah Ziayi, the provincial police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

    "The children are 8 to 14 years old and were in the mountain to collect firewood," he said

    While Ziayi confirmed the Taliban had fired missiles at foreign forces in the area, he said children and not Taliban were the casualties.

    He accused ISAF of carelessness, questioning how the coalition, with its high tech weaponry, could not differ between Taliban and children.

    ISAF said they would launch an investigation into the claims of civilian casualties after an attack on its base in Nangalam Valley. It said the attack wounded one civilian, working with the coalition.

    On Feb. 18, 64 civilians were killed during a similar strike in Ghaziabad district of the province. Afghan investigators said the dead included 20 women and 29 children.

    That and people need to have the vision to see these things before they happen and stop cheering on more war.

    Well said, people need to throw out party affiliation and judge people on what actually happens.

    except that he's a loser and a hypocrite because when baby bush started his wars of choice, the loon was all gung ho.

    but yes, it's time to get out.


    except then the rightwingnut freaks would be screaming that the islamofascistmuzlimsocialstkenyan is soft on terrorists.

    because that's what loons like them do.

    The very fact that Afghanistan was fought like a conventional war..knocking out the government and THEN basically stopping and diverting forces to invade Iraq is the fault of the Bush administration.

    Personally..I wouild have prefered the "Biden Solution" to this mess..but there are no easy answers.

    And people opposed to President Obama would hate any option he took.

    It all depends on where and how they are piled up.

    If they are piled too high, the pile might become unstable resulting in an avalanche.

    I would be outraged if someone was injured by a falling body pile.
