    Doctors Without Borders... an organization Niketalk donated to. Tragic.

    https://theintercept.com/2015/10/03...-u-s-bombs-a-hospital-in-the-war-obama-ended/

    Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least nine of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. “Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,” reported the New York Times. 

    For its part, the U.S. military in Afghanistan issued a statement acknowledging that it carried out airstrikes, claimed they were conducted “against individuals threatening the force,” and conceded that “the strike may have resulted in collateral damage to a nearby medical facility.” But the NYT reported: “From early on, the Taliban had respected the hospital’s request not to bring weapons inside, according to staff members, and the hospital had been a refuge in the shattered city of Kunduz. It was a place where the wounded from all sides were treated.”



    Update is 12 staff members and 10 patients killed including 3 children. 39 more injured.

    Why are we there again?

    Why are sick children being murdered?

    Why are Arabs stereotyped as terrorists here in the US again?

    Huh? Wut? Why?

    Word up. And u can tell by the sentiments of our society just how we operate. We allow the aggressors to cry foul about discrimination and what not and allow them to become of the victim.

    I thought y'all voted for Obama because he wouldn't do mean things like this? Where are the impeachment/war criminal accusations for Obama...

    Liberals are only against war when republicans are in office.

    Liberals are against wars when idiots like GW Bush lied to the entire world about Sadamn and yellowcake uranium. Oh but it's not like anyone in the Vice President's cabinet (Scooter Libby) was sentenced for perjury or obstruction of justice, right? Oh and which President pardoned Scooter Libby before stepping down from office? But hey look it's not all bad, we now have thousands of terrorists (ISIL) that came about because of Bush's war.

    Yeah Liberals are only against war when republicans are in office :rofl:

    im pretty sure obama ran on the promise of focusing on afghanistan while pulling out of iraq...

    seems like he held his word as far as im concerned...

    accidents happen in warfare... part of the game
