Laughing US Soldiers Murder Afghan Children
THE MURDEROUS reality of neoliberal imperialism was further exposed to the world on Sunday, with news of a massacre of innocent civilians in Afghanistan.
The US embassy in Kabul was reported as saying one American soldier had been detained over the shooting. It added that anti-US reprisals were possible following the killings, which come just weeks after US soldiers burned copies of the Koran at a NATO base, triggering widespread anti-Western protests.
As the USA’s allies, Israel, continue to murder Palestinians in Gaza, the hypocrisy of the neoliberal claim to the global moral high ground has never looked so utterly exposed.
