Three Afghan civilians were shot by French soldiers
Kabul : Afghanistan | Jul 27, 2011
French soldiers, part of the forces of the Atlantic Alliance (NATO) in Afghanistan, shot three civilians, a man, woman and child. The three people died. According to the French army the car they were traveling [in] failed to stop at a checkpoint. Three other civilians were injured in the incident in the northern province of Kapisa.The French ambassador apologized, but Afghan President Hamid Karzai said no apology could bring back the dead and called for NATO to protect civilians.
So, Karzai has one more time warned NATO “for the last time” about their atrocities; which then continue after Karzai’s umpteenth “last” warning. Very many people probably don’t take Karzai seriously any more.
Stop the Afghan war!

War and the True Tragedy of the Commons. H. Patricia Hynes, Truthout: “The ‘Tragedy of the Commons,’ Garrett Hardin’s 1968 controversial essay published in Science, essentially targeted overpopulation (read: poor women) as the prime threat to sustainable life on our finite earth. Hardin, and many who consumed this thesis, failed to single out the very small, but politically powerful, population responsible for a mammoth environmental impact – the military. Per capita, the military complex (read: powerful men) is the most polluting human population”: here.
