Associated Press reports:
NATO Warplanes Kill NATO Soldier, Wound Others in ‘Friendly Fire’ Incident in Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan Sep 4, 2006 — NATO warplanes killed one of the force’s own soldiers and wounded several others in a “friendly fire” incident in southern Afghanistan on Monday, NATO said in a statement.
In a sense, this is symbolic for NATO.
On paper, it has lofty principles of promoting peace, human rights, etc.
However, in practice, they constantly attack those very principles: not just in Afghanistan, but also in Yugoslavia, Iraq, etc.
More British dead in Afghanistan and Iraq: here.
Canadian dead: here; and here; and here.
More Afghanistan: here.

The New Face of Terror in Afghanistan:
How so-called “Democracy” Empowered our Allies; the Fundamentalists,
Warlords and Drug Barons.
A phoney democracy – dominated by warlords, drug barons, oil industry
representatives and World Bank administrators – has now been successfully
imposed upon the people of Afghanistan. This was achieved thanks to the
efforts of the world’s major military and economic powers, including
Canada. The new issue of Press for Conversion! exposes every scandalous
step in this US-led, Canadian-assisted “regime change.” This whole sordid
process, which took five years, ensured that one set of brutal,
fundamentalist warlords (the Taliban), was replaced with another (the
Northern Alliance). To read more about the theme of this issue, click
Some sample articles on a brave Afghan woman MP
Several articles in this issue focus on Malalai Joya, an incredibly brave
woman who is Afghanistan’s youngest MP. She recently spoke at the NDP
convention in Quebec City. We were very fortunate to be able to arrange for
her to speak in Ottawa, and I was truly honoured to introduce her to a
crowd of 450 people at Prof. Denis Rancourt’s “Activism Course” at the
University of Ottawa. Read more about her talk
