    The US army has massacred a group of civilians in Afghanistan.

    Around 60 of these people are children.


    This was dismissed by the Whitehouse recently because a Fox news reporter who is an ex soldier said it wasn't that bad.

    Can you believe that?

    A massacre and the attempted hasty cover up on such a flimsy pretext?

    makes you wonder if the whole thing is a lie and that the wars are for oil and gas and that there have been the massive casualties reported in the lancet.

    Could it be that Fox news and the US Government have the same hideous aganda?


    Who would have thought that?

    Palin thinks this war is god's will.

    Your link says for the year 2008 the following

    July 6, 2008
    47 civilians, including 39 women and children attending a wedding party, are killed by a US airstrike in Nangarhar province, an Afghan government investigating team claims

    I have to get to work, I cant look into this but I wonder why you are posting in September something that is said to have happened in july

    Oh so if it happened a few months ago that is fine??

    The reason it is delayed news is that the US government tried to suppress it citing Fox news as evidence that it did not happen.

    The truth is coming out now.

    Try to address the facts that

    The massacre did happen

    The US Government suppressed it on the flimsiest of grounds

    Fox news lied about it.

    My god, all your heroes in the dock at once

    This was all over the news when it actually happened... no one "hid" anything.

    Further I find it ironic that you, as usual, bring up oil and gas as the reason for going to war. Please explain how we invaded Afghanistan for oil, when Afghanistan does not have any oil...

    I never said anything was fine, I questioned why you posted this in the middle of the night like some urgent breaking news. Did you just find out about this?

    Oh dear, do you think that when it is night in the US it is night-time everywhere else too?

    Ahh, bless

    None of this changes that this is old news that was widely reported throughout the US.

    Also, do tell why we invaded a country with no oil for oil.

    You invaded Afghanistan to steal the gas and that theft is well under way. Palin even thinks it is god's will. God obviously doesn't love the people of Afghanistan.

    You invaded Iraq to steal the oil.

    Net net you have invaded countries that were not attacking you, bombed and burned hundreds of thousands of civilians, massacred children, tortured captives and all because the US loves other people's oil and gas.

    The fact that you are not ashamed of this behaviour explains a lot about you and it is not good.

    News flash genius, Afghanistan does not have any oil, and only limited natural gas... which we do not need, as we have huge pockets of that here...

    Afghanistan sits on the largest pocket of natural gas in the world.

    Apart from that I am sure you are right.

    The US has been in Afghanistan for all this time just time trying to catch a beardy guy in a cave haven't they big bob?

    Ahhh bless.

    4/10 for effort and blind ignorant faith. Must try harder.
