Afghanistan: Americans miss the target again

Sad events again take place in Afghanistan. US aviation one more time missed its target. One person died, several were injured – that is the result of the bombardment of Perakheil village.

In Perakheil situated at a distance of 56 km from Jelalabad, there is the house of Maurvi Nuula Mohammed, former supporter of Taliban. That was his house which became the target of US bombers, Reuters reports.

The attack of the village started in several hours after Afghan allies of Americans besieged the settlement. The victim of the bombardment is Mohammed’s brother. Seven Afghan militaries and two civilians were injured in the attack. The nine of them were transported to hospitals in Jelalabad. Now, US military is clearing up why the bombardments was not exact.

This is not the first precedent of the kind and it hardly will be the last. Once, Americans destroyed by bombing a settlement where a wedding was celebrated, as a result 48 people died, including women and children. At that time, US surface group of Special Force thought that it had registered some air-defence fire.

Americans again and again repeat the same mistake. Do thy understand that in this way they only discredit the new authority of Hamid Karzai backed by them? Apropos, just after the wedding tragedy, he asked (of course, he could not demand!) to inform him about planned surface and air operations of the US. But the US did not listen to him and, therefore, exposed him. Though the Pentagon high officials are mistaken, if they hope for settling all troubles only with money.
