And Now Another American Attack Annihilates Another Afghan Wedding Party

Amid today's unbridled American presidential election celebrations, we learn that another, now all too familiar, almighty US military f*ck up has once again wiped out many innocent men, women and children. Ordinary/regular people whose only 'crime' seems to have been celebrating something special of their own.

And after all, lets face it, such long suffering, sad & sorry civilian souls have had precious little to celebrate since the dark day that the evil Saudi Arabian, Osama bin Laden's 9/11 bait was so eagerly swallowed (hook, line and sinker) by bloodsucking BushCo and mighty M.I.C. mates.

If ever "even the stones cry out" in Afghanistan, then the din will be deafening. And we do mean damned well deafening.

Surely, it must, by now, be more than bloody obvious even to the most moronic among the wantonly warmongering and (futile) cold-blooded vengeance wreaking retards, that criminal negligence and/or incompetence of epic proportions, is, alas, now endemic in America's modern day military.

And so, we wonder if the word 'accountability' is to be included anywhere among Barack Obama's many recently promised changes.

US Afghan air strike 'killed 40'

US air strikes have been blamed for many civilian deaths

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said about 40 people were killed in a US air strike in southern Kandahar province.

Many more were wounded when a wedding party was hit. US officials confirmed civilian deaths and are investigating.

"We cannot win the fight against terrorism with air strikes," Mr Karzai said in comments directed at US President-elect Barack Obama.

Mr Karzai has repeatedly criticised the high level of civilian casualties in such bombings.

The latest civilian deaths underline the challenges facing the US president-elect and future commander-in-chief.
