Massacre in Panjwai
" A U.S. Army staff sergeant walked off his base Sunday and, going door-to-door in nearby villages, shot to death at least 16 civilians, including nine children, subsequently setting some of the bodies afire.
The latest untoward event in the U.S. military expedition in Afghanistan is horrifying any way you look at it.
The history of the U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan and of similar expeditions elsewhere—including the Iraq War, punctuated by the abuses at Abu Ghraib—demonstrates two realities about such incidents."
"It is frankly disastrous. It is not just a disaster for the people who were murdered and killed in their houses, it is disaster for the country I suspect."
"We are now being told by the police sources that the US soldier left his base at three o'clock this morning. It would have been pitch-black wherever he walked," he said.
"The soldier went through three separate houses, shooting at people as they slept in their beds. After the soldier shot these people, he turned himself in.
"A very bad message the Afghan people are getting, that if US military remains in Afghanistan beyond 2014 and their attitude and behaviour remains the same - of killing innocent civilians - what will be the consequences, and how will the Afghan people respond to it."
