Well we managed to rid Afghanistan of a Little League Team. 9 boys, age 7 to 12 were killed by American Forces who mistook them for Militants. The boys were taking a moment in a lull in the fighting to gather firewood. Now they are dead. General Petraeus issued a rare apology (which I’d equate to John Belushi’s apology after smashing the guitar in Animal House – Sorry About that.).
Can soemone tell me what benefit it would have been if the 9 had actually been militants? How much closer would we be to an end in that absurd and costly war? We all know, no further.
Can we please end this debacle and bring the troops home. Now. Today.
