    Afghan President Hamid Karzai spoke out for the first time today about the "heart-rending" media accounts of a rogue US army unit accused of deliberately killing civilians for sport.

    In his first public reaction to the scandal, Hamid Karzai said he wanted to ensure ordinary Americans knew about an alleged rogue army unit "kill team" accused of murdering Afghan civilians and mutilating their corpses.

    "They killed our youths for fun, they killed old people, they even planned to kill children," Karzai said in a speech "I want the ordinary American people to hear my voice and to know that Afghans old and young are being oppressed in their name."

        Well Obama campaigned on Afghanistan being the righteous war so the left can't criticise it and the right started it so they can't criticise it. I believe we should be out of there and should have been a long time ago. I don't think we should be supporting corrupt Karzai.
        War is ugly and bad things happen so I'm not going to criticize our soldiers.

            Don't judge all military personnel by the acts of a few criminals.

                    Such incidents are not increasing. When was the last incident even remotely like this crime?

    What ability do the ordinary people of America have in changing such things? hmm

    Aren't their lifestyles being destroyed as well? hmm

    Political issues throughout the entire world are being used as justification for many inexcusable events!

    The abilities of all ordinary people everywhere are being undermined purposefully every day by the political objectives of the few that choose to have them remain unknown to the 'Ordinary People!'

      So you have two incidents, inexcusable as they were, in ten years? If you want to talk about the suicide rate, that is obviously a separate issue.

        i think i have not communicated in way i intended.. i am not taking this issue from only point of view of innocent lives lost by inhuman acts of few soldiers...i am here concerned about their mental health which is not only taking innocent lives but also their own lives...core point is rethinking about war and strategy...i hope i am communicating...
