"I went to get the fuel with everybody else, and then the bombs fell on us," the boy told a delegation led by U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Greg Smith, head of public affairs for the 103,000 U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan.
Scores of civilians were killed in an ugly way. Never mind the "official" story. The German Bundeswehr saw something they didn't like, so they called for an air strike. All the while, I can't help but ask myself, time and time again, what on earth is the German Army doing in Afghanistan? I mean, hey, just ask any German on the street if the memory is still alive. There's this tiny, itzy bitzy ugly mark on the German score card. Shit happens, okay. NOT OKAY --- What on earth is the German Army doing in Afghanistan? The war they are participating in IS ILLEGAL!
I suspect you're feeling better now, after reading about German soldiers and airmen participating in yet another illegal war, after so many years of neutrality. I'll bet you can find comfort in the fact it isn't your military doing the dirty (and illegal) work.
Guess what. Guess who dropped the bombs on the gasoline tankers? In other words, look in Rear Admiral Smith's eyes and guess who fucked this one up. Be my guest. Guess.
It takes two to tango. This time, it was the Germans (called in the air strike) and the Americans (dropped bombs on tankers filled with gasoline while CIVILIANS were busy grabbing up free gasoline while the trucks were stuck in the sand). A prefect team. The fascists of the recent past call in the fascists de jour to kill even more "ragheads".
So who's counting? Just a few more "ragheads". There are plenty more where those came from, I hear you mumbling.
Ward Churchill labled 9/11 as a "blowback". Of course, Ward is and was wrong with his definition. 9/11 was an inside job which only served to enable everything that has been done since that day. It's fuckups such as the one from yesterday that will generate and draw upon us what the Co. so lovingly cals "blowbacks". The very first of such came earlier today. More will follow as your "ragheads" and everyone else on the short end of your sticks work at getting even with the PTB as we know them today.
Lord have mery on our souls the day the shit we have dished out to others is dished out to us on the same filthy plate.
Justice will be served. If not here and now, then certainly at another place and at another time. Most likely just when we're not expecting it.
NATO OUT OF AFGHANISTAN ! NOW !
Germany out of NATO, one the above is accomplished.
