U.K. Guardian: “neutral” International Red Cross is training Taliban in life saving first aid

Is this stupidity or treachery?

The local Afghan Red Cross, an arm of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), has been training Taliban fighters in basic first aid and supplying the same people who are killing American and Allied soldiers everyday with the necessary equipment to do the job.

In April the (ICRC) trained more than 70 of these murderous thugs who have also been killing Afghan police officers and soldiers.

When pressed for an explanation of its atrocious conduct the ICRC said it had instituted the life saving classes because the countryside is strewn with landmines and roadblocks preventing people from getting to hospitals for treatment.

The ICRC which takes a position of neutrality in the war on terror, and is funded with American money, has also trained more than 100 Afghan soldiers and police officers to soothe their consciences.

So, once again we have meddling international “do-gooder” liberals making a bad situation worse, this time in Helmand and Kandahar provinces.

This program has frustrated and confounded government officials in Kandahar, and brought one to observe: “[the Taliban] did “not deserve to be treated like humans.”

Continuing his point that fewer Taliban would mean fewer deaths and suffering he added: “They are like animals, and they treat the people they capture worse than animals. They kidnapped and killed an American lady and then wouldn’t even return her body. These people don’t deserve this help.”

Proving it can’t be trusted to understand the gravity of the problems that will follow a Taliban victory, a “Nato spokesman in Kabul said: “Nato has tremendous respect for the humanitarian work carried out by the ICRC and we recognize the need for this work to be carried out impartially.””

Respect for terrorist? Remember we fund NATO as well. Is this stupidity or...

Lets flip the coin.

Will the Talibunnies now be less likely to set off a car bomb next to the Red Cross building?

Also - Was the training provided by the Red Cross or the Red Cresent? I thought Muzzies had nothing to do with the RC, except to kill them....

By the way, The American Red Cross and The International Red Cross are not the same organization. So you can feel fine about continuing to contribute to the American Red Cross, who continue to do good work in places like Tennesse, with the recent floods.

I survived the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake about 5 miles from the epicenter. Many houses were totaled in my neighborhood. The closest city had main street destroyed. The Red Cross were the first ones on the scene, and very well organized.
