Drone strikes over Afghanistan have killed many civilians (Image World Bulletin)
(Guest post from Islamic Emirate)
Numerous events of betrayals and deception form part of the American history. As such, they can be called champions of the field of deception and wiles at global level! Strangely enough they do not feel embarrassed rather feel proud. During the last days of 2014, Obama the president of the invading America announced resolutely and proudly that our combat mission had ended. That only to deceive the Afghans. In fact after five months of the announcement until today, the war, bombardments, brutal killing and harassment of civilians have been continuing.
The brutal American drone attack on funeral ceremony in Bati village of Ali Sher district, Khost province on 5 June 2015, which resulted in the killing and injuries of several innocent civilians is the recent example of this deception and brutalities. The recent incident is horrible and despicable due to many reasons. The targeting of funeral ceremony in broad daylight, the killing of innocent civilians deliberately and plunging their families into grief and anguish is an act which could only be expected from war criminals and savage beasts. It is not tolerable to any human being.
On 3 June 2015, just two days before the incident, in reaction to the gruesome incident in Balk province where nine workers of an aid organization were killed, the Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International plainly said that the killing of Afghans (civilians) was a war crime. Human Rights Watch analyst Heather Barr said: “This was shocking and horrifying. What we are most concerned about is the fact that this appears to be intentional targeting of civilians”. Following Heather Barr remarks, media outlets indefatigably tried to publish a lot of articles and analysis and gave full coverage to the issue.
Comparably, no one paid attention to the intentional killing of nomads (civilian Afghans) and to the dropping of phosphorous bombs on funeral ceremony in broad daylight. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are also silent about the incident, no coverage has been given to the incidents by media outlets. Still more, the surrogate administration of Khost Province called the civilians terrorists and considered their killings as a legitimate right of America. As far as the two-headed Administration is concerned, they okay every decision of America and thank them after the killing and harassment of Afghans.
No doubt, All Afghans, whether allies or opponents, and the entire world know that American powers-that-be top the list of war crimes. They act like beasts of prey during their conduct with human beings. Their immense crime is their invasion on the freedom and independence of nations. They have ruined the system of the world for their interests and do not think they are subject to any law or commitment to any treaty or promise and back tracking on their promises do not embarrass them.
How would Afghans trust the promises of invaders while their assertions in the morning contradict those of the evening? Their acts are contrary to their assertions. One day they say: we are leaving Afghanistan, we have accomplished our job and we have succeeded. Another day they declare, no, we are staying, we are not leaving Afghanistan. Sometimes they say the war has ended but next day they say the war is ongoing.
From the beginnings our message to the invaders is that the Afghans have a tested prescription to eliminate viruses of invasion. That is the continuation of sacred Jihad against every occupation. The sacred Jihad is the only remedy to disinfect all harmful viruses of deception, conspiracies and atrocities of the enemy.
