Whats really sad is that the U.S. government will try to cover it up. The news will not be released on any main stream media like CNN, for they would hate to show that the U.S. government kills people. No, they will wait for the news to slowly tikle out and maybe do an article in a week or two.

False, Captain Anonymous. It has been released. But what you fail to understand is that Americans won't care. We just won't. You can't make an omlette without breaking a few eggs. That's an old saying that applies to wars too. Anyway, if the Taliban hadn't attacked us, these civilians would still be alive, so hey, their fault. 206.74.5.136 04:47, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
I saw a criminal near your house so I'm going to shoot at it and kill your family just to make sure he didn't get away. Great logic. --218.215.95.81 09:05, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, at least now you know how Soviets felt in Afghanistan, too. Speaking of "civilians" - yeah, they're all civilians, until you ask them for water to drink, and they give you poisoned water. Or you turn away from a kid, and he throws a grenade at you. Betcha those "women and children" were wives and kids of those Taliban mujahideen, too? And who's to blame if they hide behind their own dear ones in hope that Americans won't shoot at them then, for humanitarian reasons? 131.107.0.72 05:05, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh yes being the relative of a criminal carries the death penalty now. --218.215.95.81 09:05, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

The US still has no care for the lives of people in 3rd world countries. Some things never change. --218.215.95.81 09:05, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

The Nazi's said that they weren't responsible for the deaths of citizens because the Partisan "terrorists" used "human shields"...Soapy (talk) 02:50, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Soapy you are the typical fool that believes Taliban propaganda and comparing Americans to Nazi (who went out of their way to kill innocent people) makes you double the fool.--KDP3 (talk) 18:37, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I didn't compare the U.S to Nazi's at all, I merely pointed out how silly it is to accept the propagandistic term of "human shields", and you seem to want to deflect this argument by making it seem as though I am comparing the U.S to the Nazis.Soapy (talk) 00:43, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
