all these war criminals from all countries, from usa and other who massacred and massacre people in this Afghanistan must be tried on charge of war crimes and crime against humanity. To say,,I am sorry ,, for murdering of innocent people and ruining of their country is misunderstanding. And usa - this country of degenerate scum must pay compensations for Afghans.
