    A United States military investigation into a deadly Kabul drone strike on a vehicle in August has found it killed 10 civilians and the driver and that the vehicle targeted was likely not a threat associated with ISIS-K, announced Gen. Frank McKenzie, the top general of US Central Command, at the Pentagon on Friday.

    McKenzie told reporters that the strike -- which he said killed seven children -- was a "mistake" and offered an apology.

    What the f**k


    Stop the ethnic cleansing.

    Afghanistan is now doomed in EVERY single way ....

    For example the western financial institutions paid for the majority of the Afghan governments running costs. With that gone there is now no/little state. That means lots of jobs gone.

    Famine and desolation are fast approaching. Anyone with enough money and half a brain are leaving. The penniless and the brainless are doomed.

    Complete economic collapse.

    All that is without even going into how backwards and short sighted the Taliban are .. They are not civilized in any way, they are misguided thugs and zealots.

    Even without the coming famine and economic collapse it would still have been a horrible place to live. With the Taliban 'in charge' it will become a god forsaken hell hole fast in well under a year.

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    They thought the water jugs being loaded into the vehicle were explosives. 

    It's these kinds of assumptions from an aerial view that made staying Afghanistan a fool's errand.

    You say in all fairness but there's nothing fair about bombing a family and a worker for the US just because they thought what they were carrying looked like explosives. This isn't the first time the US has done shit like this but the least they could've done is court marshal everyone behind the operation.

    Legal proceedings?

    Ya good luck with that. Internal investigation looking for mistakes made. If none found, carryon...if found, someone will fall on their sword.

    However tragic this event is, no nation is immune to such events when in a conflict zone, especially when dealing with terrorists/insurrectionists.

    As for Palestine, they aren't victims.

    The US has 'carpet bombed' since world war 2.

    They claim to be more 'disciplined' in their target selection now.

    They do try to 'do the right thing' But they still have it wrong. Big time.

    The US screwed up vietnam so bad it isnt funny big time. Their carpet bombing was a big injustice. All this time later there are still people getting cancer because of agent orange. Not so good.

    I saw a news article a number of years ago. The US has dropped more bombs in afghanistan than they did in vietnam.

    The US carpet bombed afghanistan. And there was little/no target selection ie making sure they bombed the bad guys instead of civilians. Not so good to say the least.

    When the US 'select targets' to bomb a lot of the time they really dont have a clue. They are just hoping its a 'good' target ...

    Some of the time they do get the right target. Other times they dont ....

    More civilians died because of US bombing in Afghanistan than died in the actual fighting on the ground. A LOT more ...

    It isnt good enough.

    I live in the UK. The US's attitude towards 'collateral' damage overseas IS NOT good enough. Nowhere anywhere good enough..

    They carpet bomb to get 1 or a few bad guys and kill 50 civilians when doing it ..

    Pathetic.

    They claim to be more 'disciplined' in their target selection now.

    They do try to 'do the right thing' But they still have it wrong. Big time.

    The US screwed up vietnam so bad it isnt funny big time. Their carpet bombing was a big injustice. All this time later there are still people getting cancer because of agent orange. Not so good.

    I saw a news article a number of years ago. The US has dropped more bombs in afghanistan than they did in vietnam.

    The US carpet bombed afghanistan. And there was little/no target selection ie making sure they bombed the bad guys instead of civilians. Not so good to say the least.

    When the US 'select targets' to bomb a lot of the time they really dont have a clue. They are just hoping its a 'good' target ...

    Some of the time they do get the right target. Other times they dont ....

    More civilians died because of US bombing in Afghanistan than died in the actual fighting on the ground. A LOT more ...

    It isnt good enough.

    I live in the UK. The US's attitude towards 'collateral' damage overseas IS NOT good enough. Nowhere anywhere good enough..

    They carpet bomb to get 1 or a few bad guys and kill 50 civilians when doing it ..

    Pathetic.
    Guess if you're the top dog no one can stand up to you


    Stop the ethnic cleansing.

    Think that goes without pointing it out. Not sure where the correlation is between children and terrorists unless you are joking

    They thought the water jugs being loaded into the vehicle were explosives.

    It's these kinds of assumptions from an aerial view that made staying Afghanistan a fool's errand.

    In all fairness, pop cans, dolls, etc. were all used to conceal explosives even during Vietnam War.

    The US has 'carpet bombed' since world war 2.

    I am english and i like the USA.

    But their attitude when conducting 'military adventures' overseas stinks BIG TIME.

    It just isnt good enough at all.

    Imagine what someone who doesnt like the US feels .....

    Terrorists dont grow on trees .. They are brainwashed by 'preacher' men to 'fix' injustices which are happening... ie lots of civilians dieing...

    Since world war 2 every US 'military adventure' has ended in a LOT of people being VERY unhappy with the US.

    The US should just back off and maintain a defensive position. NO 'adventures' at all because it causes more trouble than its worth ...

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    This airstrike just radicalized someone though. We pretty much just saw the birth of a new Taliban fighter.
