NATO air strikes in the Khost Province district of Shamal this morning killed at least 14 civilians including eight children. It was the second strike in the province this week, with a Tuesday attack killing as many as 11 other civilians.
NATO admitted to the first strike, but termed the slain “associated family members” of the Taliban they were trying to kill, and insisted some Taliban were killed. They have yet to comment on the new strike, though they did say they were investigating a third incident of civilian killings.
The third incident came Wednesday, when NATO air strikes killed a pair of young shepherds in the Ghazni Province. The provincial police chief confirmed that the deaths were the result of a NATO attack, but NATO insisted the attack had killed only one person, an insurgent.
The Khost killings sparked public protests with many hundreds of demonstrators taking part. The Karzai government has recently lashed NATO over civilian casualties, but has yet to respond to the latest incidents.

This is disgusting.
NATO, OBAMA (by sending troops there to kill Afghans ) and every other foreign fighter in Afghanistan are murderers.
Get the hell out of there and let the brave Afghan People sort out their own problems.
If NATO doesn't want to be accused of killing Afghan civiliians, especialy children, they should get the heck out of there. Who is NATO? It's us, mostly, and we're giving our country a really bad name. Do we seriously think the world does not know NATO means the US?
We need real moral leadership in this country or we will be hated even more than we are now.

Continue to win their hearts and minds…and the rest of their bodies, one bomb at a time. And remember, they hate us for our freedoms.
