Not until there is a reformation in that culture will these things be one a rare event. Until then, the mindless killers will continue to kill each other
Good thing the American soldiers aren’t there anymore causing this kind of violence.
Remember, our new Secretary of State kerry says we are the terrorists, assaulting women and children in the night.
Sorry. Did the illustrious SoS have a statement on this?
Didn’t think so.
UBL is dead and GM is saved!!!
Wogs will be wogs.
