They're not even denying this one. "US-led coalition jets" brought the gift of modern aerial bombs to a compound in Afghanistan today killing "some" insurgents and 7-children.
For all our side says, and they say it so very often, that they're trying to really stop this sort of thing, their actions put the lie to their claims.
They like to use words like "compound" instead of "a cluster of houses." Compound doesn't sound like a place where kids would be sleeping when you drop a few 2,000 pounders on them.
The day that the US and NATO want to stop killing civilians is the day they use soldiers, not air strikes, against residential targets. Until that day comes, all those soothing assurances are plain old barnyard bullshit.
