"The U.S. saying (Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales') massacre of 16 civilians is an aberration, that's not true. ... Afghan people have been bearing night raids, aerial bombardments and drone attacks almost as a norm throughout these horrible years of United States invasion and occupation."

– Kathy Kelly, Voices for Creative Nonviolence, who recently returned from a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.

afghanistan

The most recent flashpoint for violence in Afghanistan came after U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales allegedly shot and killed nine children, four men and three women – all civilians, on March 11, in two villages near his Army base in Kandahar province. The shootings followed violent protests provoked by the late February burning of copies of the Koran and other Islamic religious material by U.S. military personnel at America’s Bagram air base. Earlier, a video showing four U.S. Marines urinating on three slain Taliban fighters had provoked angry demonstrations.  Story continues

The shelling of cities and towns such as Homs, which has killed and injured hundreds – along with running battles between government troops and the opposition Free Syrian Army is transforming what was once a civilian uprising into what many fear will lead to full scale civil war.  Story continues
