Far Away

Regarding the most recent mass killing of civilians in Afghanistan by the US,
Imagine if an airstrike from a foreign power killed 60 American children - even in an accident. It would be an historic event that would be seared into the Western consciousness for ever. And yet, US bombs just killed exactly that number and the odds are: this is the first time you heard about it.
That's right.

US is piling on the spin and "experts" to try and defray the scope and magnitude of the incident. I will wait. Rules of engagement? We live in a post-shockable society
