Now that Obama's the Warmongerer, it's a "NATO Airstrike"... Nice.

    NATO airstrike in Afghanistan kills up to 90

    By FRANK JORDANS
    Associated Press Writer Sep 4, 9:18 AM EDT

    KUNDUZ, Afghanistan (AP) - A U.S. jet blasted two fuel tankers hijacked by the Taliban in northern Afghanistan, setting off a huge fireball Friday that killed up to 90 people, including dozens of civilians who had rushed to the scene to collect fuel, Afghan officials said.

    ---

    The way I Read that, it was a US Jet... What's with the Shifting of Responsibility to NATO now?...

    Was the "Warmongerering" there under (43) Credited to NATO by the AP, Pre-Messianic-Age?...

    And More Importantly, were their any Innoncents Killed there who have Families who will Grow up to Hate the Infidel Americans and come to our Soil and Kill us at a Later Date?...

    These are the Questions the Left USED to Ask...

    Interesting isn't it.

    :)

    peace...

    Astute observation, Mal. I'd have given you cred for this, but apparently I need to spead it around before I do so.

    Odd, how much of the propaganda we're fed hinges on something so simple as word choice, isn't it?

    If you're point is that these choices are NOT accidently, then you and I are on the same page about that point.

    So much propaganda value can be created by something so simply as selecting one word when another word is more accurate.

    The airstrike is likely to intensify concern over civilian casualties in the Afghan war. Top NATO commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has ordered curbs on airstrikes after a strong backlash among Afghans over civilians killed in military operations.

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai issued a statement saying he was creating a panel to investigate the attack. "Targeting civilians is unacceptable for us," he said.


    ^Not Obama's Fault... His Expansionism in Afghanistan had NOTHING to do with this...

    This is "NATO's" Fault...

    Carry on.

    :)

    peace...
