Sky News broadcast an interview yesterday with a woman who just lost her child when an American soldier opened fire inside her home in Kandahar.
The Americans are always entering our homes with dogs because they say they are looking for Taliban, she said, but this child was not Taliban, I have never seen a two-year-old Taliban fighter.
The Taliban say they will ‘avenge’ this massacre, which the villagers say involved more than one US soldier, whilst the American military say that this was the actions of a single gunman who was suffering from mental problems.
As this all happens in Afghanistan, the US and her allies are threatening to intervene in Syria with Bank-i-Moon calling for an end to the violence.
Yes, violence is unacceptable in Syria, it is also unacceptable in Gaza where 30 Palestinians have now lost their lives, and of course in war-torn Afghanistan.
