At this point I do not believe you can lend credence to any of the reports of the number killed or injured coming out of the area, anyone's reports.
It is a tragedy that this happened, and there is no doubt this has happened. But the reports will be varied from person to person, government to government.
I am sure the US will find some scapegoat to blame for the bombing, pay off the families of the killed and injured, and continue the mission that has been started in Afganistan.
I understand that the firing of weapons into the air is part of nearly every celebration in that region, but come on, you are in a war zone, most likely a free fire zone and you start shooting weapons into the air. I for one am not going to go knocking on the door and ask who is shooting and why. I will assess the situation from a distance, and then call in the preferred method of dealing with a hostile situation, which in this case is an airstrike.
Fault me if you want, but in every armed conflict there are civilian casualities, it is a fact. We do not have the capability to know everything about everyone and then do a sugical strike, no matter what you see on TV. It is very easy to sit back at home, watch the news and then make your comments on what should have been done. It is entirely a different matter to come under fire, you make your decision based on the best available information at that time, often you do not have the luxury of waiting for updated intelligence.
Just my .02 cents worth, not the opinion of the administrator, moderators, or probably some people on this board.
