Taliban vows revenge against 'American savages' after US soldier allegedly kills 16 Afghan civilians

KABUL, Afghanistan – The Taliban is vowing revenge against the U.S. after an American soldier allegedly shot and killed 16 Afghan civilians in a Sunday rampage.

In a statement on their website, the militant group promised to "take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr."

They added "American savages" committed the "blood-soaked and inhumane crime."

"If the perpetrators of this massacre were in fact mentally ill then this testifies to yet another moral transgression by the American military because they are arming lunatics in Afghanistan who turn their weapons against the defenseless Afghans without giving a second thought," the statement said.

Afghan officials reported nine of the 16 victims were children and three were women. They said some of the bodies were also found to be charred.

The veteran American army staff sergeant allegedly left his base in the Panjway district of Kandahar province and walked about a mile to a nearby village, where he went on a house-to-house rampage, methodically shooting Afghan civilians.

Newscore and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

“Something” isn’t quite right, here. But Obummer’s already groveled & apologized for us, as usual. I spit on taliban/islam etc...

No kidding. They don’t get too riled up when the Taliban detonate bombs in crowded markets and restaurants.
Maybe bombs are acceptable but bullets aren’t?

Well that was a terrible act by a crazy man...I wonder if we’ll ever learn what he was thinking of?

I'm beginning to think the soldier is a radicalized American Shia Muslim who wanted to take out some Afghan Sunnis for the 72 amateur hos.

In which case the truth will NEVER come out—not as long as the Islamophile is president.

Since when do these people need an excuse for attacking Americans.

Maybe they will openly attack now. That would be a big mistake. No They will continue to sneak around plant bombs and run and hide.

We do need to leave there, and let them go back to beating their wives and screwing their litle boys./

“...an air-strike was involved.”

Wouldn’t all those hut-hovels be blown to smithereens?

Too much missing information/facts, here... I can’t get my arms around it all, yet the US Soldier is already tried/convicted in the corrupt LSM!

moozlums lie all the time to advance to advance their situation. the bodies (if they exist) have been removed. witnesses are lieing moozlums. the “crime” scene has been disturbed. kaerzi has assumed guilt. our great leader, nobama, has assumed guilt and already apologized.

So...what’s not to like about this situation? sheesh!

I completely agree.. and in retrospect we should`ve HELPED the Soviets against these simian cave-dwellers.

“We should have talked to the Russians about trying to gain control of that Middle Ages backward, moon worshipping, women enslavig cesspool.”

We knew that from the Ruskies’ public 10yr beating. Control wasn’t what was needed in Af-crap-istan. TOTAL DESTRUCTION was, but we weren’t willing/allowed to do that.

Nation building is BS and a complete waste of American lives! The Ruskies showed the world that fact many years ago. We didn’t learn from it.

I wonder how many of their fellow Afghans they murder on a routine basis? I’ll bet what that Staff Sergeant did (grizly as it was) pales into comparison to your average Taliban operation. Of course, no outrage (real or manufactured) ‘cause its Afhgan on Afghan violence.

Pull out our troops and let Afghanistan sink back into the 6th century hell hole it was under the Taliban. The place isn’t worth the cost in lives or money and the Muslims only want to live in barbarism.

Those Afghanistani’s were slaughtering each other wholesale before the Russians went there and they will be doing the same once we leave. Nothing will be any different for them. It is what they WANT.

If you wanted to describe a country by what the people DO most consistently, and nearly to the complete exclusion of all/any other activities, for these guys it would be:
1. Murder one another
2. Grow Opium
3. Bear children

For decades now, they have been the recipients of billions from foreign powers. Not one iota of any thing in their lives or behavior will have changed or improved once we leave! This gives a whole new dimension to the expression, "Stuck on stupid".

It appears this guy “flipped out” after serving three tours in that God forsaken rat hole. He should be brought back to the states immediately and provided with a top flight attorney. ONe should not be surprised if the government turns him over to Karzai.

“Stuck on stupid”.

Stuck forever in the 7th century, too. Nothing/no one’s going to drag them across the finish line. Nuke ‘em to Hell.
