More details on civilian deaths

CNN's Fred Pleitgen in Afghanistan reports more details about the civilians who were killed Sunday when two rockets fired by coalition forces in Marjah missed their intended target. Coalition forces fired two rockets with the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System at insurgents firing upon Afghan and ISAF forces, but they struck about 300 meters off their intended target, ISAF said.

    Just heard on CNN ab out more cicilians killed in Afghanistan, it was called accidental! How can it be that way when an airstrike was called in on them. Just like guys sitting in California operating drones in Pakistan, the drones are unmanned committing murder on innocent civilians. Then the US claims terrorists are cowards for blowing themselves up when targeting U S forces? Will the real cowards in Calif. please stand up!!
