Thieves are not civilians


ATO aircraft opened fire on hijacked fuel trucks in Afghanistan before dawn on Friday, killing as many as 90 people in an incident that could trigger a backlash against Western troops.

Villagers said their relatives were siphoning fuel from the hijacked trucks and were burned alive in a giant fireball.

"No civilians must be harmed during military operations," Karzai said in a statement. "Targeting civilians under no circumstances is acceptable."

Humid Krazai can't seem to force the idea into his head that these people were stealing, making them indistinguishable from enemy operatives, and in fact aiding the enemy. He's just making another play for more Western guilt and aid.
