Road Rage in Afghanistan


Afghanis want to bring some of their saviors to justice; the Afghan National Assembly, reports the New York Daily News, passes a nonbinding resolution seeking prosecution under Afghan justice for soldiers who drove a truck into a line of cars, killing five, and sparking huge riots. Fat chance; American soliders fall only under their own justice, and besides the Army says the brakes failed and no one is at fault. And as far as the shooting toward the angry crowd that gathered after the incident, well,

[Col. Tom] Collins was unable to say whether shots were fired from the crowd before the machinegunner opened up, or whether other soldiers in the convoy had fired. "We just don't know yet who discharged their weapons or even at whom," he said.
