The Afghan war summed up in a quote

We have shot an amazing number of people, but to my knowledge, none has ever proven to be a threat."
-- General Stanley McChrystal, New York Times, "Tighter Rules Fail to Stem Deaths of Innocent Afghans at Checkpoints"


  1. I agree, that article was strangely ignored by the media and even blogs. Apparently they just can't stop randomly shooting people at checkpoints or what looks to be drive by shootings from army humvees. Hell of a way to win a war and earn the trust of the people you are supposedly there to protect and liberate.

    Like those shot and killed are going to testify to the righteousness of their own slaying.
