Who is going to take the responsibility of this US idiocy? What kind of soldiers do those troops include? How ruthless are those troops? Killing civilians? Well, are their scapegoat?
On March 4, 2007, US troops opened fire on innocent Afghan civilians after a car bomb attack on their Convoy.
At least 24 civilians were also wounded in the incident in the eastern province of Nangarhar.
Afghans at the scene say US troops opened fire on them indiscriminately. There were no reports of casualties among US soldiers.
Throwing rocks on police, Afghan protested at the scene of the killings.
Many chanted: “Death to America! Death to Karzai!” in a reference to the Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president.
More than a half dozen Afghans injured in the shooting told the Associated Press news agency that US soldiers had shot at pedestrians and passing cars indiscriminately along a five-kilometre stretch of one of eastern Afghanistan’s busiest roads.

“They were firing everywhere, and they even opened fire on 14 to 15 vehicles passing on the highway,” said Tur Gul, 38, who was shot twice in the hand as he stood by the roadside.
“They opened fire on everybody, the ones inside the vehicles and the ones on foot.”
One man told Al Jazeera five members of his family were killed in the shooting
“American bullets murdered my family … it’s tyranny and injustice, he said.”
Mohammad Khan Katawazi, the district chief of Shinwar, said the Americans had treated every person and car along the road as a potential attacker.
Abdul Nangahar, the province’s police chief, said: “When local people came to the scene, the soldiers just opened fire on the crowd. People got killed and wounded.”
“When we parked our vehicle, when they passed us, they opened fire on our vehicle,” said 15-year-old Mohammad Ishaq, who was hit by bullets in his left arm and his right ear.
“It was a convoy of three American Humvees. All three Humvees were firing around,” he said.
Ahmed Najib, 23, who was hit by a bullet in his right shoulder said: “One American was in the first vehicle, shouting to stop on the side of the road, and we stopped.
“The first vehicle did not fire on us, but the second opened fire on our car,”
Najib said his two-year-old brother was grazed on his cheek by a bullet.
“I saw them turning and firing in one direction, then turning and firing in another. I even saw a farmer shot by the Americans,”
The US military said in a statement its troops fired in self-defence as they fled after the car bomb attack.
Well, so much for self-defence? You coward murderers. You are hiding behind your stupid guns. After you immunition is over, you will be running like a wind. That is what cowards do. You did not have to go to Afganistan and you know that. You`re fighting something you don`t even aware of. Those civilians were innocent and you all will pay for this. A generation of bombers will rise from the blood of these innocents. You are just making it worse. I pity you all.
