    Dan's comments are shockingly stupid. I am white Canadian Atheist (putting it out there just so you don't go called me an Islamist). Colonial powers have been opressing these people by supporting whatever dictators were in power because order and the bottom line were always far more important to said powers than justice or freedom like they say. Salerno is right in calling this a genocide as it would be anywhere else in the world if a government bombed and killed 60 civilians. Is the US occupation of Iraq not responsible for over one million civilian casualties? I watch CNN too, but I do not rely on it as my only source of news, as it is censored by western powers. Anytime you cite scripture to make a point, being from the Torah, Qu' ran or Bible, you show how much of a sheep you are. Wake up Americans you are not fighting for freedom. http://www.infowars.com http://www.aljazeera.net

      IIIWill- you did very well to precise to be a white canadian atheist, otherwise they would have thought you could be a Taliban or a terrorist, like they said about me. BTW I am a white born in Italy from all Italian family, but not living there. We can have different opinion about religion, philosophy, but we have to be coherent.

      I know Matthew 5, but it is different from what Dan told. In fact, the murder is worse than verbal offense. So it is untrue we are not judged only for what is going out our mouth.

    Jesus never said that, but anybody believing Jesus was not resurrected and says such things about Him must be. I rarely curse and would never curse my Savior and as I said His body was resurrected and there is no dead body. Also when did CNN tell this story about America killing 64 people because I usually have CNN on and never seen it so I do believe that you are lying.

      If the civilians are dying ..it is a serious matter. yet Terrorists did that in Sri lanka. They used humans shield for protection. Then the government Army told them to leave them(insurgents) And civilians without arms risking there lives and came to official army camps. So civilians without arms should leave insurgents as much as they can. we all commented on this incident about Afghan governor "s incident with women and children. Salerno war is terrible and we dont want war. As you know very well they are after someone and where is he ? and his friends.? The war wil end as soon as the culprit come out.

      That is a lie. Maybe 64 militants killed and how would you know anyway? And if you say you've got friends there I'd believe you, but they would be the most outwittings of all of Islam and if your Islamic you know what I'm talking about. Yes for the warriors of Islam it is OK to lie to the enemy for the benefit of their war effort. Isn't that right salerno?

    It's a good thing Riza that your returning to your homeland. I wish the same for all other refugees who left because of these wars. It is a shame that some people would teach such hatred for people just to gain power and support for their ambition to rule over the people and the people have no idea that we are there to help them to be rid of people who would do such things as kill themselves and many others because all they want is to have a choice in who will govern them along with the freedom to live as they please and not be forced by religious fanatics as how to live when they kill people out of hatred and have no love for one another!

  17. Riza Afghan

    30 year of war and 95% of afghans have been out of Afghanistan because of Taliban.

    You should know, 95% Afghan citizens have been living outside Afghanistan for the paste 30 years, all obtained other countries citizenship just to live there, it doesn't mean they've changed their mind completely. They will return to their homeland anyhow. Homeland is homeland !!!

    To be honest, i obtained my Russian citizenship around 8 years ago and Russian government toke my Afghani Passport but i traveled to UAE and obtained my Afghani passport back and travelling Afghanistan 1-2 times a year and i am sure after 6-10 year i will leave Russia for ever & travel back to my home "Afghanistan", my right and status is 100 times higher then being a fake Russian, I am an Afghan and everyone loves me in Afghanistan.

    There is one positive point which all afghans learnt from this war. this war forced all afghans to leave Afghanistan and traveled world wide and we have learnt world wide culture and Afghans know how to behave with any people around the world, no matter from Asia/Europe/USA. We know all them, their behaviour, their reaction, positive / negative / way of talking etc...

    If there was no war in Afghanistan, all Afghans would live just like Mongolian People or Pakistani People or Irani People.

    90% Irani/Pakistani People never traveled outside their country and never had contact with a foreigner.

    Best Example is Pakistan: Why most Pakistanies hate Americans ?
    Reason: because some Pakistani uneducated Monk misguided all Pakistani youths and taught them to hate Americans/Europians because they are the bad guys. if Pakistanies travel to USA/Europe, they will know how good Americans and Europians are, how honest and beautiful & proud people they are.

    my main point is, Afghans traveled everywhere due to this war and most afghans are updated and are aware of all kinda people and we love Americans and Eurpians and Asians.

    To stop hatred, don't listen to anyone. Better travel yourself and find the true history of a country. if you are listening to a monk or to an uneducated lecturer and start hating a country then you are an idiot and uneducated.

    Always believe what you see, never listen to anyone, of course listen to positive people, if they are spreading hatred, you better travel or google it πŸ˜‰
    and update yourself before shouting and start hating people.

    Lots of Love From Riza and Afghanistan People.

      Wow just a Marine here. How many of you actually are able to read. next how many of you ever put your life on the line to defend anything other than your own personal interests. Remember " FREEDOM OF SPEECH" but remember the little known thing called intelligent thought. Think before you open your mouth. You love their people. ......... What about your own. I believe we should always support those who can not fight for themselves. Many good men lost their lives " I LOST A LEG" for what is 95% illegals.. Do I understand what you people say you love. Like I said just a dumb Marine here. Spill your blood and then talk about blood. Learn to pull the trigger in the name of love. You people would not know love if it ran you over.
