    Most of those Bales murdered were children:

    No one asked their names

    "In the days following the rogue US soldier’s shooting spree in Kandahar, most of the media, us included, focused on the “backlash” and how it might further strain the relations with the US.

    Many mainstream media outlets channelled a significant amount of energy into uncovering the slightest detail about the accused soldier – now identified as Staff Sergeant Robert Bales. We even know where his wife wanted to go for vacation, or what she said on her personal blog.

    But the victims became a footnote, an anonymous footnote. Just the number 16. No one bothered to ask their ages, their hobbies, their aspirations. Worst of all, no one bothered to ask their names.

    In honoring their memory, I write their names below, and the little we know about them: that nine of them were children, three were women.

    The dead:
    Mohamed Dawood son of Abdullah
    Khudaydad son of Mohamed Juma
    Nazar Mohamed
    Payendo
    Robeena
    Shatarina daughter of Sultan Mohamed
    Zahra daughter of Abdul Hamid
    Nazia daughter of Dost Mohamed
    Masooma daughter of Mohamed Wazir
    Farida daughter of Mohamed Wazir
    Palwasha daughter of Mohamed Wazir
    Nabia daughter of Mohamed Wazir
    Esmatullah daughter of Mohamed Wazir
    Faizullah son of Mohamed Wazir
    Essa Mohamed son of Mohamed Hussain
    Akhtar Mohamed son of Murrad Ali " :(

    Rhode Island Reservist gives life to save Afghani girl...

    U.S. soldier dies saving Afghan girl
    March 28th, 2012 - After the news of a U.S. soldier charged with murdering Afghan civilians, mostly women and children, the story of Spc. Dennis Weichel of the Rhode Island National Guard bears telling.

    Has he read the names of the hundreds of thousands of children slaughtered in Darfur and Sudan by the religion of peace?
