U.S. airstrike kills 8 Afghan schoolboys out of 10 dead civilians


Reports have surfaced that a U.S. airstrike killed 10 Afghan civilians, eight of them schoolboys, on Sunday in a remote area of Kunar province in northeast Afghanistan. Yet NATO officials are refuting the charges and butting heads with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the governor of the province about the details.

WRH Comment:

The summary execution of Afghani kids and innocent civilians will continue to grow in Afghanistan, and there is nothing Karzai can - or will attempt - to do about it.

The US and NATO don't have enough boots on the ground to fight what is essentially a land war.

As the insurgency against US and NATO forces continues, so will the air strikes; that is, until the coming of the "Saigon Moment" in Washington and Kabul, where, years after the original invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, it will be realized that this war is un-winnable.
