The Afghan National Security Council has raised the stakes in the aftermath of this week’s alleged Kunar massacre, calling for NATO to hand over the responsible parties immediately to Afghan authorities.
NATO continues to change its story on Tuesday morning’s pre-dawn raid in the Kunar Province, which killed 10 Afghan civilians, eight of them children, and has led to massive protests against the international military effort.
Initially NATO officials insisted there were no operations going on in Kunar at all, though later they privately admitted US special forces were in the area. This story morphed into claims that it was a US military operation that killed an “IED cell” and that they had no proof of any civilian deaths.
Now, NATO says the operation was not military in nature, but rather was a “sanctioned” operation conducted by “non-military Americans” and that the children were all killed in self defense.
Whether “non-military Americans” entails contractors, like Blackwater, or CIA agents as were attacked yesterday in Khost remains to be seen. It is clear however that there is more than meets the eye to these killings, which locals insist involved the killers dragging the children out of bed and even handcuffing some of them before shooting them.

In a military conflict the worst of human nature is exhibited. That however does not absolve US of double standard when describing variety of conflicts. Recall how they maligned the Serbian troops in Kosovo when they killed civilians in a gun battle. Or Russian acts in Chechnia.

Nato and US troops are terrorists.
OOO NO "O" Say it ain't SO….. Maybe this isn't the right war after all…. WTF would wanna own the dead children war…. Who…???? The Conoco TAP pipeline aside, EVEN Conoco don need this..!!
This kinda pub-ilicity [dead CHILDREN] true or false does not augur well for the prospect of general Pbetray-us mission to "protect the people" Does this infer that CHILDREN are NOT "people"? Not O.K. to handcuff twelve or fifteen year old boys and shoot them in the head… Let's not start going rugue or Mai Lai mode….. Dead children is NOT the SALES pitch you wanna use, try something else…………. the WHOLE world is seein this stuff…… Bad..Bad…Bad.. No good gonna cum fromit.
