Convoy of Death: fact or fiction? 3,000 massacred in Afghanistan?

From my OP: Witnesses say that when the trucks arrived and soldiers opened the containers, most of the people inside were dead. They also say US Special Forces re-directed the containers carrying the living and dead into the desert and stood by as survivors were shot and buried. Now, up to three thousand bodies lie buried in a mass grave.

Certainly, if you know the story, you’ll also remember that the US was in charge of the operation in Afghanistan that led to the massacre? If you want to debate the video’s truthfulness, please be my guest. That’s why I made this thread.

It smacks of what?!

Senor Viscoso, I think you may not have skimmed Alde’s post thoroughly enough.
Or perhaps your comments are more enigmatic than usual. I usually get what you’re getting at even when others don’t appear to be though.

It seems that you were at first were addressing the OP, then it seems that you switch midstream and begin addressin smiling Bandit’s post instead.

I don’t have cable and I knew about it. I saw multiple programs on it years ago and I believe I mentioned it here in passing but I can’t remember the topic. I Don’t remember US soldiers driving any of the trucks. This was early in the war and was the result of (from what I remember) inter-tribal conflicts.

I couldn’t tell how much of this was deliberate or just stupidity. Some of the drivers knocked holes in the truck to give them air but I think this was the exception. A very gruesome death.

You might look over past Frontline exposé’s on the war for information. You can surely buy the episode from them.

No mystery, really, just calling a bluff. He was holding low: one pimply Jack on an Inside Straight. :slight_smile:
Magiver: That’s a start, but it doesn’t really address the documentary in the OP. Since you seem somewhat sympathetic to the topic, are you at least able to watch the streaming video? I would be willing to rent some high-speed web time next weekend, when I can get to town. (Just not quite ready to fork over ~$35 plus shipping, thank you.)

Old news, very old indeed. Are we bothered?

And the rape of women by men. Much much greater. Yet we love Africa, and all their descendents. Such sickness and hypcrosity is a feature of socialist thought.

WoodCM, how’s the weather under that there bridge?

Jetaudio is your friend.

Not so fast, Finchie. Let’s hear what this WoodCM fellow’s got on his mind.

WoodCM: did you see my reference to the Massacre at Acre? I know it’s just a drop in the bucket, but an army of Christ, during The Crusades, beheaded 3,000 unarmed human beings out of sheer spite.

Are the Sudanese janjaweed so alone in their cruelty?

Maybe a Christian Militia isn’t good enough for you.

How 'bout a Corporate Militia. One very well known, even back in 2001.

Well? Where is the barbarism in your world? Is it strictly black and white, or are you wise enough to see the people pulling the strings?

  1. Can you translate this comment in understandable English.
  2. Can you explain in detail what your intentions are behind your deliberately misreading, misinterpreting and completely twisting what I write in a visible attempt to make other readers doing the same.
  3. If you want to avoid me replying on your threads, then post that intention as a specific demand in the OP.

Thank you.
Salaam. A

I get annoyed from time to time, just like everyone else. :slight_smile:


I saw the film. End conclusion: Mostly shite. Message was, “Gee, America is a big dirty bird because someone told us that they knew a guy who said her heard of someone who saw some soldiers stand around and do nothing while container loads of prisioners were (or perhaps were not, he didn’t see that part, but his neighbor did, and hes missing now, so he must have been telling the truth) killed or died in the heat and buried or maybe taken somewhere else. Anyway, IT’S ALL AMERICA’S FAULT!!”

Seemed pretty slim to me. They had no evidence of any involvement of US troops or officals. If there was killin’, and I’ll bet there was, it was hot Afgan-on-Afgan action.

Resume the regularly schedualed “debate”…
