NEWS that a US sergeant from the Fort Lewis base in Washington state was on a “village stabilization operation” when he  massacred  16 Afghans in Panjwai Kandahar province. He murdered nine children and three women. Inside the home of Haji Wazir Agha, 11 of his family are dead.

The Taleban vows to attack the “sick minded American savages” and   “take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr” .

Plus ca change. From both sides. Remember  Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs :

Five soldiers from the US Army Stryker Brigade based there were charged with the murder of three Afghan civilians, who had been killed “for sport”. A sergeant from the brigade was convicted on three counts of murder in November.
