"The anti-terror attack the US launched in Afghanistan on Sunday reportedly killed 10 civilians. And a stunning truth behind Thursday's suicide bombings at Kabul airport that killed 13 US soldiers and around 170 Afghans was also revealed: It turns out that many of those Afghans were shot dead by US soldiers. The combination of the two pieces of information has quickly fermented into the latest scandal of indiscriminate killings by US forces.
The US military did not deny the possibility that they had "accidentally killed" Afghan civilians. It promised to carry out an investigation, but its attitude is quite indifferent. The US military actually wants to downplay the two incidents. It is still unknown how many civilians have been "accidentally killed" in Washington's "anti-terror operations" in Afghanistan and the Middle East over the decades. The number of civilian deaths caused by US troops must be much higher than the number of "terrorists" the US has killed.
The US constantly downplays those "accidental killings," while the mainstream media in the West, including those of the US, play a supporting role in this regard. Western media have reported about these tragedies, but they have never treated them as a prominent human rights crisis or have not bashed them frequently, let alone call for an investigation of these crimes..."
