US military killings in Baghdad in 2007

This is a graphic depiction of how the US miltary behaves in Iraq and elsewhere.

It show the killings of civilians by the US military in Baghdad in 2007.

How dare any one pick up the wounded and take them to hospital?

Not while you got trigger happy Americans in a US Apache helicopter overhead.

Injured a few children in the attack?

Well, the fault lies with the father, who was trying to help the wounded

and not the trigger happy American, who just wants to kill.

Just ran over a dead body. Not against any US soldiers principles.

See for yourself:

Pregnant Afghan women were killed in bungled Nato raid

Nato officials admit that as well killing 2 innocent men, they also killed 3 innocent pregnant women in a bungled night time raid in eastern Afghanistan.

In February, Nato forces killed two innocent men in a botched night-time raid in eastern Afghanistan.

The men, a district prosecutor and local police chief were shot dead when they came out of their homes carrying firearms to investigate what was happening outside.

Nato forces, according to “reliable information” were expecting the men to be Taliban insurgents.

Nato officials said they were killed because they appeared to show "hostile intent", in other words, when they came out to investigate, they were armed.

Nato military officials claimed that 3 pregnant women, inside the same house, were killed by unknown assailants before the raid in Gardez in Eastern Afghanistan on 12 February 2010. One was a pregnant mother of 10 and another was a pregnant mother of six.

Now, in April, Nato admits that the women were killed as a result of the joint force firing at the men.

How difficult is it to tell if you shot dead 2 innocent people or 5 innocent people?

Why lie about how many people you killed?


Nato will, once again, apologise and pay compensation to the family of those killed. An Afghan life is not worth much and Nato can easily afford it.

After the incident, Nato said that the three women were found bound and gagged hidden in a room in the house. Now they say this was based on a report by troops unfamiliar with Islamic burial customs.

The Islamic burial custom does not include the person being bound or gagged.

How difficult is it to tell if a dead person is bound and gagged?

Did the dead district prosecutor and local police chief perform the muslim burial customs?

Why is it so difficult for Nato officials to speak the TRUTH?

The New York Times and Britain's The Times -- said that the foreign troops involved in the shooting were members of US special forces who tried to cover up the deaths by removing bullets from the bodies.
