A US soldier in Afghanistan has killed at least 16 civilians and wounded five after entering their homes in Kandahar province, senior local officials say.
He left his military base in the early hours of the morning and opened fire in at least two homes; women and children were among the dead.
Nato said it was investigating the "deeply regrettable incident".

Here is a good read about the “Graveyard of the Empires” myth - http://www.propagandistmag.com/2011/04/22/more-afghanistan-myths-graveyard-empires
“Something very strange about this report. How does one soldier walk out of a base in Crapganistan?”
at 3 AM by himself heavily armed. I smell a setup. Remember back in Iraq when something like this happened and they would not let us do an autopsy on the bodies because it was against the Koran. I expect the same thing to happen here.
Soldiers are fundamentally human beings who are taught that what they do is more then just a day job,you can’t tell them that it is ok that their buddies got killed by cowards in uniforms and tell them not to do anything offensive towards the Afghan people.
Senior leadership didn’t care about how soldiers felt about these acts perpetrated against them,so at least one soldier eventually snapped and most likely took matters in his own hands.
An act like that is not,of course,going to stop Afghan soldiers or interpreters or anyone else who is supposed to be on our side from killing any more soldiers.
Again however the leadership acted as all soldiers needed was a perp talk on how they shouldn’t let base acts of treachery get in the way of working with the locals,which was horribly stupid......in a situation you buy the soldier’s trust back.You don’t ignore their concerns and tell them to move on.
I agree. I seen your post on another thread the other day about Agenda 21 and it does scare you. The more you read about it, the more everything they are doing makes since. Absolute evil.

It’s a tragedy the people our soldiers were sent to liberate, to be savaged by the act of one senseless murderer. There’s no excuse for his actions. The victims families will be marred for the rest of their lives having lost their loved ones. There will be children that will grow up without a Mother or Father or both. Their will be Mothers and Fathers who have to live with the loss of a child. Senseless tragedy. But, I wouldn’t paint every member of the military with the same broad brush. They perform admirably under the most difficult circumstances, it’s amazing there are not more instances like this.
