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.

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.

As I have posted on another topic today -
They're Muslims so let them kill one another.
Mores the point WHY ARE WE HELPING OUR ENEMIES ??
Islam IS OUR ENEMY and it is comprised of ........ Muslims!

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.

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.

That’s correct. That’s what Obama’s been saying for years now. I didn’t realize, however, it included the killing of children to paraphrase the Democrats.

The formula is pretty simple. Even boys under 12 can understand the simple rule.
Play among the terrorists and die. Their choice.

(Also stay away from Baby Milk Factories, Funerals and Weddings)

Hundreds of Afghan civilian boys under the age of 12 are executed by the Taliban or killed by IED’s manufactured by the Mooselimbs. Nine Afghans are mistakenly killed by NATO forces and Karzai is outraged. The Taliban makes no apology, NATO makes apologies...who's the villain? Oh, I see, the Taliban can kill with no repercussions.
