NATO air strike kills 33 civilians in Afghanistan.

But those women, children and elderly, why, they're all terrorists! A material threat to the Almighty Yew Ess of Ey! Right!

Just awful. All this bomb from the air now and check it out later crap has got to change. Or at the very least they need to get better intel. And this JUST after promising to try and reduce civilian casualties. Sigh.

This is now Obama's war, right? I mean, ever since he decided to escalate it with a troop surge.

Obama shoulders all responsibility for this.

I wonder if the Council of Ministers has issued any statements condemning the barbarity of the Taliban? It is tragic that civilians have died but this wouldn't happen if the Taliban would give the government a chance. Instead of the Taliban trying to work for the people of Afghanistan we've got acid thrown at schoolgirls, extrajudicial killings of village elders who won't accept Taliban rule, etc. etc. Let's put the blame where it belongs.

I don’t know what happened here any more that anybody else on this site, but I would ask you all to remember that the Taliban live and fight with their families close by. This may well seem like a group of civilians now, once all weapons have been removed by the survivors, but were they civilians before the bomb was dropped? I don’t know and neither does anybody else here so let’s wait and see before we condemn this “accident”.

ca1ic0cat: Stick to the point. It's an Afghan problem. Not yours. Let them deal with it. The Taliban are Afghanis, you're not.

They don't have the means to deal with it or it would have been dealt with already. Must be nice to live in a world with personal blinders on to see what you want to see.

If 9/11 never happened, as well as the bombings in Spain, and the UK then yeah it wouldn't have been OUR problem. But it happened and NATO wants to make sure it will never happen again.

i listened to a podcast from NPR foreign dispatch and it followed a company of US troops in afghanistan. They called in air support from Harrier Jets for a single Taliban guy with an RPG, which seems a massive disproportionate reaction. Reminds of the scene in Jarhead, surely a single sniper would be better and limit civilian casualties.

The U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan will eventually be regarded by most as colossal failures.

We cannot win. No matter what things may look like in 2010, even with rosy assessments and positive future projections galore, the U.S. will lose.

It is just a matter of time.

America has won. The USA now has massive amounts, of troops and firepower, smack dab, in the heart of Islam. Iran is right next door, and so is Pakistan.
