I clicked on this story by Reuters that reports “12 killed in protests across Afghanistan” because I was curious: Muslimites killing fellow muslims? Soldiers killing Afghans? Muslim soldiers killing muslim protesters? What happened? Here’s the meat of the story – see if you can figure it out.
Armed protesters took refuge in shops in the eastern part of the city, where they killed one demonstrator, said police at the scene. In another Kabul rally, police said they were unsure who fired the shots that killed a second protester.
Seven more protesters were killed in the western province of Herat, two more in eastern Khost province and one in the relatively peaceful northern Baghlan province, health and local officials said. In Herat, around 500 men charged at the U.S. consulate.
Got that? Armed protesters killed “demonstrators” in one province, while “seven more ‘protesters’ were killed elsewhere. Killed by whom, “demonstrators”? Were the protesters who were killed the same type as the armed protesters mentioned in the first paragraph? A different sort?
Since no mention is made of U.S. or Afghani soldiers is made, I assume they weren’t involved; Reuters would never miss a juicy bit like that. And, while the police do merit a mention, they aren’t described as being involved in any killing. It sounds to me like one group of these religion of peace scumbags turned on the other. It’s the only explanation for Reuter’s silence that I can come up – just as, for Reuters, there are no enemies on the left, the “news” organization has never met a muslim terrorist it didn’t like.
