    What happened to them happens everyday to countries that we bomb. Example, an Afghan village, in what way is it fair?

    And now it's Iraq's turn, AGAIN. We install djihadists and the puppet in the government calls us. BUSINESS AS USUAL. Maybe we should see more dying people to at least question our foreign policies!

    Is there some specific incident you are referring to, or are you just making stuff up?

    Can you point to a specific, recent incident in which 5 special operators were killed by friendly fire from a B-1 Lancer?

    I'm betting you can't.

      Why is that people who don't know assume easily that I am wrong instead of verifying first? But I guess it's why it makes them uninformed. in reference to what superkev wrote.

        Then point me to a story, I haven't heard a word about it. Been to caught up in Obama's latest blunder I guess.

        Oh, and to answer your above question: It's because you can barely construct a coherent sentence in English and when I finally do suss out what you are trying to say you are usually wrong.

        Look at your first two posts, they hardly make any sense at all and have such poor syntax one has to struggle to figure out what you are attempting to say. If you grew up here and graduated high school, you have no excuse for such poor writing.

          Here is my source, l didn't want to belittle you knowing that most Americans know ONLY one language but since you are forcing me. Given my first impression of you, you probably belonged to the mass and therefore would be monolingual. Show me that I am wrong.

          La nouvelle selon laquelle cinq soldats étasuniens ont été tués par un « feu ami » en Afghanistan est beaucoup plus significative qu’il n’y paraît dans les médias. On a de fait évité de dire que les cinq —non pas simples soldats, mais membres des forces spéciales (celles qui opèrent aujourd’hui dans la guerre secrète en Afghanistan)— ont été tués par erreur par un bombardier B-1 qu’ils avaient eux-mêmes appelé afin de détruire une position ennemie.

          Le B-1 Lancer, produit dans les années 80 à cent exemplaires, est un bombardier furtif d’attaque nucléaire, capable de voler sans approvisionnement sur plus de 12 000 km. Avec la fin de la Guerre froide, 68 appareils ont été convertis pour transporter aussi des armes non-nucléaires, en particulier des bombes à fragmentation, des bombes à guidage GPS et des missiles de croisière. Utilisé pour bombarder l’Irak en 1998 et la Yougoslavie en 1999, le B-1 a été massivement employé en Afghanistan depuis 2001 et en Irak depuis 2003. Dans cette vidéo, on peut le voir pendant qu’il largue des bombes à fragmentation sur un village afghan :



          Étant donné que les B-1B Lancer peuvent transporter aussi des bombes et missiles nucléaires, leur utilisation dans une action guerrière réelle permet d’en améliorer l’efficience y compris pour un éventuel emploi dans une attaque nucléaire. La même chose se passe pour les bombardiers stratégiques étasuniens B-2 Spirit conçus pour l’attaque nucléaire : ils ont été utilisés avec des armes non-nucléaires dans les guerres contre la Yougoslavie, l’Irak et la Libye. Deux B-2 Spirit sont arrivés dimanche des USA à la base anglaise de Fairford, se joignant à trois forteresses volantes B-52. « Le positionnement en Europe de bombardiers stratégiques étasuniens —a déclaré l’amiral Haney, chef du Commandement stratégique— renforcera l’interopérabilité avec nos alliés ».

          Italie comprise, gardienne diligente de bombes nucléaires étasuniennes.

            Sorry slick, I speak German and Irish, and neither very well.

            Only thing you need to know how to say in French is : nous nous abandonnons

              Meaning? If your German and Irish are as poor as your French, I was therefore right in my first assumption.

        Maybe because that is the null hypothesis.  On these forums do you believe everything people say?

      Nowhere in your link is there any indication anyone was killed by either carpet bombing OR by B1B bombers, which is what the OP claimed and superkev questioned.

      Looking at a half dozen web reports with no regard as to origin, the best I could find was "possible friendly fire with a B1B involved".  That is not what was claimed.

      Just more America bashing breathless liberal hyperbole. Friendly fire incidents happen from time to time in war, they are unavoidable but far less common than they used to be.

      All your link says is 'NATO aircraft' which could be from one of any number of countries still operating in Afghanistan. And it could well have been their screw up or one of the Afghan people on the ground giving bad coordinates, you have no idea how this happened. But hey, don't let the facts, or your lack of them, keep you from screaming bloody murder against America just one more time.

      A lot of people are lazy on this website.

        The burden of proof is on the person making the assertion.
