Maybe we should grovel and apologize some more. That strategy obviously is paying off. Maybe Obama will come out today and thank them for not killing more of our soldiers.
Two U.S. troops have been shot to death and four more wounded by an Afghan solider who turned his gun on his allies in apparent anger over the burning of Qurans at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, an Afghan official tells CBS News.
A statement from the International Security Assistance Force – Afghanistan, the international coalition in the country, confirmed that two troops were killed in Eastern Afghanistan on Thursday by “an individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform.”
ISAF does not typically give the nationality of casualties until family members have been notified, but the CBS News source in the Afghan government said those killed and injured in the attack in the Khogyani district of the eastern Ningarhar province along the border with Pakistan were Americans.
The source also said the shooting appeared to be motivated by the burning of Qurans at the sprawling U.S. Bagram air base, north of Kabul, but he did not provide additional details as to what led him to that conclusion.
It’s time to pack up and leave to savages on their own. Clearly ten years of our blood and sweat hasn’t been appreciated in the least.
Granted, this isn’t the worst outcome once could envision. What’s worse? The Afghans are apparently racist.
