KABUL — The acting governor of Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province said Sunday that Taliban fighters had been routinely firing "small and heavy" weapons from the ground of a local hospital before it was apparently hit by a U.S. airstrike over the weekend. (snip...)Schools, hospitals, and mosques, are considered "safe ground" by the enemy. They set up mortars and rocket launchers on "safe ground" so that when—inevitably—they are hit by counter-fire, they can immediately run to the main-stream media and scream in hysterical anguish and woe that the Great Satan has again crossed that fantastically ephemeral line between socially acceptably war, and the darkly evil genocide that all Muslims know is being perpetrated against all Muslims everywhere.
When you think of America, those four diabolical syllables should—if you've been properly programmed by your neighborhood leftwing public school—conjure thoughts of barbarity, carnage, fangs dripping blood, the routine flogging of slaves carrying burdens too heavy for any man to carry, soldiers firing their M-16s into screaming crowds of fleeing school children, rape, pillage, and horror unimaginable.
In an interview, Hamdullah Danishi said the Doctors Without Borders compound was “a Taliban base” that was being used to plot and carry out attacks across the provincial capital, Kunduz city.<snark>Gosh! It seems to me that Doctors Without Borders is a really SUPER idea!</snark> They're doctors who don't care about politics; they just want to save lives. Yet...they continued doing their work knowing ... KNOWING!!! ... that rockets were being launched from their hospital "safe ground" and that these rockets were most likely killing people. Tens of people, hundreds of people, who knows how many people? What if rockets were being launched from the roof of the grounds where you worked? If your job was saving lives then I have a simple question Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), would you save more lives by running your hospital / "safe ground" or just packing up and going home? I ask this question most sincerely because it's a question you well-meaning—yet misguided—assholes have apparently never asked of yourselves.
“The hospital campus was 100 percent used by the Taliban,” Danishi said. “The hospital has a vast garden, and the Taliban were there. We tolerated their firing for some time” before responding.
