16 people??? What part of the game is this?!?!
Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents vowed revenge Monday against “sick-minded American savages” after a US soldier killed 16 villagers in their homes, while the Afghan parliament demanded the perpetrator be put on public trial in the country.
The Taliban would “take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr,” the hardline Islamist group said in a statement on their website.
“If the perpetrators of this massacre were in fact mentally ill then this testifies to yet another moral transgression by the American military because they are arming lunatics in Afghanistan who turn their weapons against the defenseless Afghans without giving a second thought,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, in a statement released to AFP on Monday, the lower house of parliament said, “We seriously demand and expect that the government of the United States punish the culprits and try them in a public trial before the people of Afghanistan.”
The veteran American soldier left his base in the Panjway district of Kandahar province and walked about a mile to a nearby village, where he went on a house-to-house rampage during the early hours of Sunday morning local time, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Nine of the 16 fatalities were children and three were women, Afghan officials said. They also said some of the bodies were found to be charred.
Senior US officials told FOX News Channel the shooter was a US Army staff sergeant based out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, Wash. — about 45 miles (70 kilometers) south of Seattle. The soldier, who has not yet been identified, is in US custody.
