Afghan My Lai Massacre Another Nail in US Coffin

History repeats itself

KANDAHAR – Afghanistan – The U.S. led NATO force was accused yesterday of winning hearts and minds again with another massacre of civilians.

“It’s just another day winning the hearts and minds of the Afghan people. We win their hearts by shooting them in the chest, and their minds by blowing their brains out all over the walls,” Colonel Deano Massacre, told Stars and Stripes magazine.

The My Lai massacre which took place during the Vietnam war was the cold blooded killing of 504 unarmed Vietnamese women and children by a small group of US soldiers. The recent killing of Afghan civilians numbers only 16 but it has the potential to have as much significance as the My Lai massacre purely because of the level of media coverage in the internet era.

The outcome of the premeditated killing of these Afghan civilians while they were sleeping, however, will probably be another whitewash in the Western mainstream media as well as the apathetic Western public.

“You must remember that Afghans are viewed as sub-human by the Western forces and media as well as the public. You kill a thousand of their women and children and no one even bats an eyelid let alone starts protesting the end of the war. People don’t protest in the West anymore. This is not the era of Vietnam where civil disobedience eventually swayed elements of the US political hierarchy to consider leaving Vietnam, although they were effectively pushed out of Saigon anyway,” political editor, John Mancuso, for the Washington Observer said yesterday.

Unfortunately for the West, they have no understanding of Muslim cultures. They think they can win against a Muslim population with selective military force and psychological warfare, but they are wrong. There is no way any Muslim populated country can ever be defeated unless every man, woman, and child is murdered. The Western forces cannot kill an ideology or the level of ingrained belief in the populations which have adopted Islam. So, unless the West is willing to nuke and kill every single person in every Islamic country, they must forget about trying to occupy or take over these countries.

The only way the West can win over all the Islamic countries they attack, is by adopting Islam themselves, and that is never going to happen, so they have effectively been defeated already.

    The Daily Squib is the true voice of the internet for me. I mean look at this it is so great it is so valuable and we should praise it because it tells the truth and sometimes that is painful and whoever wrote this has a heart. They know what is going on and the people who are still asleep or deluded or whatever wake up just wake up and look at what is really going on and not what he mainstream media feeds you.

    I'm sure this guy who killed 16 sleeping Afghan women and children will be airlifted out of Afghanistan and taken to a nice safe location in America where he might do a few years in a comfortable open prison.

    This is American foreign policy in action. And they wonder why everyone in the world despises them and cannot wait for their destruction? There have been cultures and nations which have existed for thousands of years before America and will continue to exist after it is gone.

    While I imagine there was supposed to reflect a great deal of sarcasm the person who wrote this article missed that mark wholly and completely. However, they did land on the truth of the matter regarding the level of media coverage this will receive, how it will be exploited by the Taliban (perhaps not wrongly), how we portray Afghans as sub-human cave people, and that no one in the United States bothers to protest much these days.

    To dismiss this incident as an abberation fails to account for a series of other incidents stretching from Abu Ghraib to Haditha to yesterday in Afghanistan. While those incidents may not be US policy, they certainly seem to be what the US does.
