While Thunderbolt is busy posting stories about Islamists’ attacks on schools that didn’t happen, the US military is ACTUALLY killing children at schools.
in Iraq, another U.S. airstrike has claimed the lives of seven children. A U.S. helicopter opened fire on a primary school in a village close to the Iranian border. At least three other students were injured with heavy damage to the school building. The U.S. military says it fired after coming under attack from the school grounds.
[i]CAIRO, May 8. ? Seven children, students at a public school in the Iraqi town of Mandali in Diyala province, were killed after a U.S. helicopter gunship fired on the town, according to Iraqi police sources.
The children were students at the Al-Saada school near the border with Iran, the EFE reported.
Along with the children, three other individuals were seriously injured by the attack, and the number of dead could rise. Diyala has been one of the provinces with the most violence this past year, with constant incidents. [/i]
My question to the supporters of the war is this: Do you expect the families of the kids not to seek revenge? If you were in their shoes, wouldn’t you spend the rest of your life trying to hurt the perpetrators? They’re KIDS for heaven’s sake!
Don’t come wondering why terrorism increased. The reasons couldn’t be clearer.
Meanwhile, an Afghan governor confirmed a US airstrike left 21 civilians dead in a Southern village of Afghanistan. The dead included women and children. Locals quoted a much higher toll of up to 48 killed and 20 wounded.
And I’m sure some jerk by the name of PGJ will come around claiming it’s a bloodless war and “we’re not worse than the Nazis”.
