KABUL, Afghanistan Afghanistan's president on Sunday rejected a U.S. apology for the mistaken killing of nine Afghan boys in a NATO air attack and said civilian casualties are no longer acceptable.
According to a statement from his office, Hamid Karzai told Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan, that expressing regret was not sufficient in last week's killing of the boys, ages 12 and under, by coalition helicopters.
NATO has also apologized for the mistaken killings. Civilian casualties from coalition operations are a major source of strain in the already difficult relationship between Karzai's government and the United States, and they generate widespread outrage among the population.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Wheres code stink? they don’t seem to mind 0 killing civvies..
“Fine, Mr. Karzai, you don’t want our help, lotsa luck.”
I don’t recall the death cultists ever apologizing to us.
Problem is that the Taliban and Al Qaeda are CIVILIAN...
What's he going to do, declare war on us?, Put out a warrant on our prompter in chief?
Shouldn’t the buffoons over at MorOns.org be “dragging” Barry and Rimshot Joe up before their precious “Hague” crowd? BTW, where the hell is Code Stink anyway?
“...civilian casualties are no longer acceptable.”
Uh....it’s a WAR, Mr. Karzai. There are going to be civilian casualties.
I am more interested in this question: where the hell are the Repubicans in Congress who kept giving Obama blank checks to continue this nation-building quagmire?
So civilian casualties are no longer acceptable, Karzai?
What are you going to do about it... kick us out?
WE are the only force that keeps you in power, you overrated, backstabbing little sh*t.
Now get back to being major of Kabul and leave the war to those willing to fight it.
But no doubt a sack full of money would be ...
IT'S TIME TO GET OUT OF THERE - if we are not going to kill Ben Laden then there is no good reason to help Muslims do anything. They will just turn on us as this situation illustrates BECAUSE THEY'RE MUSLIMS !!
In case you dear readers have not noticed the "moderate muslims" give cover -aka, deniability - to their fellows bugger-of-boys and then called us racist for fighting their assault on America.
I call on FReepers to headline the call for IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL OF AMERICAN FORCES FROM ALL MUSLIM LANDS. It makes no sense to assist Muslims when they mean us nothing but harm and ill will.
He’s just mad there are nine less young boys for his fellow male Afghans to molest and sell to each other - in my humble opinion, the entire population of this muslim hellhole is not worth one drop of American blood and the amount we have spilled there breaks my heart.
What the left is saying now that their guy is in charge, “War? what what war, we don’t care ‘bout no stinkin’ war!...”
I’m with you as they should be left to stew in their own hate. And we should take our weapons when we withdraw.
We should just pickup and leave and take our money with us, plus send them a bill for the cost of their protection.
