This is barbaric and unacceptable behavior. As an American I am deeply ashamed. We need to leave Afghanistan which is a very beautiful and noble country. I abhor the way the Western press refers to the dead and their friends and relatives as 'villagers' a vaguely derogatory term that makes them seem obviously backward and inferior. I am outraged that our Military-industrial complex has launched a new wave of military adventurism under the guise of NATO. Mr Ghadaffi may have been a despot but to see the way he was treated at the end made me sick. We have no business in Syria either nor Iran. I don't care how geostrategic the region is our path of destruction is immoral and detrimental to the National Body politic. I humbly apologize,as one American, to those who lost loved one's in this massacre. I grieve deeply for them because they are my relatives too! All men are brothers and all women are sisters.
