Its only a matter of time before things revert to the way it was before the yanks invaded, all these years & its nothing but waste all round, it was SO STUPID to setup in Afghanistan, the loss of life over the years by all concerned will be for naught.

Sure life was hell before, but the only thing that setting up in Afghanistan has achieved is more deaths

Good luck to Karzai and his forces stopping these kinds of attack.

I think it's time for Japan to seriously consider a nuclear deterrent.

It is a serious matter in guarding an embassy abroad particularly in a "war zone" like Kabul. The guards are usually armed members of the relevant defence force. Who guards the Japanese Embassy in Kabul considering Japans reluctance to post armed servicemen abroard?

Not quite sure why this is in the crime section.

Most war crime stories are not printed here are they? Of course, for some, attacking an Embassy is just another part of war, especially if you just firebomb the whole city safely from the air, and point to the collateral damage clause.

GW,

To quote one of my favorite movies... "But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men."

It was a crime that involved Japanese people, that is what this section is for.

By the way, the whole city of Kabul has never been firebombed. Why do you feel the need to rationalize this attack on the Japanese embassy?

They sounded learning one or two things from the Japanese labor unions ? !
