That’s the way to win hearts and minds, America.

There are many, many instances of American pilots wiping out whole families during their time in Afghanistan.

In their early days, they, several times, wiped out trucks full of friendly village leaders.

How many wedding parties were wiped out just for practicing the old Afghan custom of firing guns into the air to celebrate?

One brave American pilot killed four Canadian allies and wounded eight others trying to prove what a daredevil he was.

It is rather misleading for the press to characterize these strikes as being by NATO. The air attacks are virtually all by Americans.

I think the air attacks symbolize the entire filthy enterprise in Afghanistan, full of killing and no meaning.
