Taliban vows revenge against 'American savages' after US soldier allegedly kills 16 Afghan civilians
Fox News ^ | March 12, 2012 | FoxNews.com

KABUL, Afghanistan – The Taliban is vowing revenge against the U.S. after an American soldier allegedly shot and killed 16 Afghan civilians in a Sunday rampage.

In a statement on their website, the militant group promised to "take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr."

They added "American savages" committed the "blood-soaked and inhumane crime."

"If the perpetrators of this massacre were in fact mentally ill then this testifies to yet another moral transgression by the American military because they are arming lunatics in Afghanistan who turn their weapons against the defenseless Afghans without giving a second thought," the statement said.

Afghan officials reported nine of the 16 victims were children and three were women. They said some of the bodies were also found to be charred.

The veteran American army staff sergeant allegedly left his base in the Panjway district of Kandahar province and walked about a mile to a nearby village, where he went on a house-to-house rampage, methodically shooting Afghan civilians.

Newscore and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Why are the details so sketchy? How long was this guy gone from the base? How did some of the bodies get charred? What was the perpetrator’s name? This story feels very odd to me.

It will be interesting to know what is this “American” soldier’s name? This smells fishy. - Of course, Hussein has already apologized.

Lord, I lift up our troops to you and ask that you put a hedge of protection around each one of our military men and women so that nothing will happen to them. Give them wisdom of their surroundings as they move around. Let them have discernment. Conform them and their families with the peace that only you can give. Let is be all for your Glory! In the name of Jesus Amen

Rev up the helicopters. This is unsustainable. We should have talked to the Russians about trying to gain control of that Middle Ages backward, moon worshipping, women enslavig cesspool. This is Saigon, 1975. Time to bug out and cut the losses. It has become to much of a burden, this ‘Nation Building’....it is just not worth it to die young for President Obama and Secretaries Clinton and Panetta in a foreign, ungrateful hellhole.

I'm beginning to think the soldier is a radicalized American Shia Muslim who wanted to take out some Afghan Sunnis for the 72 amateur hos.

In which case the truth will NEVER come out—not as long as the Islamophile is president.

Since when do these people need an excuse for attacking Americans.

Maybe they will openly attack now. That would be a big mistake. No They will continue to sneak around plant bombs and run and hide.

We do need to leave there, and let them go back to beating their wives and screwing their litle boys./

moozlums lie all the time to advance to advance their situation. the bodies (if they exist) have been removed. witnesses are lieing moozlums. the “crime” scene has been disturbed. kaerzi has assumed guilt. our great leader, nobama, has assumed guilt and already apologized.

So...what’s not to like about this situation? sheesh!

“We should have talked to the Russians about trying to gain control of that Middle Ages backward, moon worshipping, women enslavig cesspool.”

We knew that from the Ruskies’ public 10yr beating. Control wasn’t what was needed in Af-crap-istan. TOTAL DESTRUCTION was, but we weren’t willing/allowed to do that.

Nation building is BS and a complete waste of American lives! The Ruskies showed the world that fact many years ago. We didn’t learn from it.

I wonder how many of their fellow Afghans they murder on a routine basis? I’ll bet what that Staff Sergeant did (grizly as it was) pales into comparison to your average Taliban operation. Of course, no outrage (real or manufactured) ‘cause its Afhgan on Afghan violence.

Pull out our troops and let Afghanistan sink back into the 6th century hell hole it was under the Taliban. The place isn’t worth the cost in lives or money and the Muslims only want to live in barbarism.

Those Afghanistani’s were slaughtering each other wholesale before the Russians went there and they will be doing the same once we leave. Nothing will be any different for them. It is what they WANT.

If you wanted to describe a country by what the people DO most consistently, and nearly to the complete exclusion of all/any other activities, for these guys it would be:
1. Murder one another
2. Grow Opium
3. Bear children

For decades now, they have been the recipients of billions from foreign powers. Not one iota of any thing in their lives or behavior will have changed or improved once we leave! This gives a whole new dimension to the expression, "Stuck on stupid".

(copied from a post I just submitted)

I would like to make a point - a point that we all know is valid. When it comes to outside forces acting inside Islamic Republics - anything and everything we do is criticized and used to make the “occupier” look bad. I have no idea why this SGT decided to do what he did. The point is, there is a vast amount of violence being committed within the Middle East and Southeast Asia - but it’s only when a US representative (civilian contractor or US military personnel) commits an act of violence does the rest of the world (although we are lead to believe this by the News) cries out and seem to care what happened.

It’s okay if a Moslem kills another Moslem - because we aren’t enlightened enough as non-believers to understand their complex society and belief system.

Look at the 2 articles that I have posted down below. There’s a ton of young and innocent people being killed - where’s the outcry? I don’t care if the youth of Iraq want to jump on the band wagon of being an Emo - or that the Syria regime is about to fall and an Iraq Sheik is helping to fund the violence in that nation - there’s young people trying to live out their life in a Moslem dominated society - just like Afghanistan - and death is a normal thing to them...what suicide bombers? - Car bombs - roadside IED’s — they kill people daily in the M/E and Afghan — so why doesn’t Karzai speak up about the belief system of Islam - where’s the clerics that dominate the society and neighborhoods - why don’t they put a stop to this with a fatwa?

The answer - they don’t care - they don’t care that a US soldier came in and killed a bunch of people - they just want the criticism and the right to b*tch and recruit more people to their cause for control....and that’s what it is all about - control l of society...so int he end - they will use this incident for their own selfish needs - just like their prophet!

Very simple solution. One embellished from that sugested by Mr.Newt. And one modified from what was offered my high school civics class by a ‘Nam Vet 60 + hrs. from the Nam. We ought tell the ruling powers that we are going home. It was a mistake for us to attempt to help the House of Islam.We were wrong to go there-and are leaving. We will NOT leave behind any working/useful— weapons, Material, or housing. We are leaving YOU to clean up your own bloody freaking house. Slay each other to your bloody Moon gods satiation. We do not care. But if even one more American dies we will use whatever Weapons of Mass destruction dropped from the sky or added to the water. To make certain
any Muslim left alive will know that the sword of Allah is Never to be forged again. and they will Know their is a bloody freaking LIE that the end of Islam is and has always been DEATH. And Destruction- and PAIN— and Sorrow—and NOTHING GOOD AT ALL COMES FROM BEING A SLAVE TO ALLAH. And when the last American is away from Afghani soil. One minute after we should signal the USAF And have the sky filled with
Bombers to carpet bomb that bloody sandbox back to AD600.Not one person, donkey,camel,or any living thing left standing.

What was all the BS excuses the White House made for the muslim officer who shot, killed and wounded US soldiers and CIVILIANS at Fort Hood?

Maybe the same people who made excuses for that POS can be asked for their opinion on this situation.

One wonders who is and who isn't pro or anti-American.

I pray for this sgt, his fellow troops, and family.
