Thursday evening, a mother and two children were shot and killed, two more children wounded at a roadblock in Afghanistan. Details are still vague, but so far it seems two cars were stopped when the fisrt one pulled out again. Security forces opened fire on the car. The roadblock was staffed by German and Afghan soldiers. It’s almost sure the bullets were fired by the Germans.

Parliament members in Germany are crying out loud to withdraw completely, as by now every Afghan civilian is seen as a suspect, and the Afghan people only look fear the foreign troops.

Nice. Let’s win over some more Afghan people.
