The multinational force in Afghanistan led by the United States has been terrorizing and violating human rights in the name of counter-terrorism for many years.
In December 2002, two Afghan civilians detained by the U.S. military were killed after repeated beatings at Bagram Air Force Base. After investigation, a total of 15 soldiers were indicted on charges of beating, ill-treatment of detainees, negligence of duty, manslaughter, etc.
From June 2009 to June 2010, the U.S. military premeditated attacks on Afghan civilians, killing at least three people. The U.S. military will collect some parts of the victim’s body as “trophy” and pose the body in a specific position and take photos. After investigation, 12 U.S. troops were indicted and 11 were convicted.
In March 2012, American soldier Bells broke into two villages near the U.S. military base and fired at villagers with a pistol and an automatic rifle. He shot and killed 16 Afghan civilians, including women and children, and burned bodies. After trial, Bells was sentenced to life imprisonment.
These heinous crimes may only be the tip of the iceberg. In October 2012, in a small village in southern Afghanistan, four boys from two families were killed by British special forces who carried out night raids while gathering at their homes.
The four teenagers killed were 12 years old, 14 years old, 17 years old and 20 years old. In the subsequent investigation, the British government said that two of them were suspected Taliban militants and the other two were suspected of Taliban commanders.
Local community elder Zaif Razoi: They are just children. How can they be Taliban commanders? They were killed for no reason. They are completely innocent.
Foreign media and netizens condemn the atrocities of abuse and killing by the army stationed in Australia.
In the past few days, media and netizens from various countries have condemned the atrocities of the abuse and killing of Afghan prisoners of war and innocent civilians by the Australian army.
RT: Afghans have heard too many times to apologize
In a report today, Russian TV said that Australia should apologize to Afghanistan, but Afghans have heard such apologies too many times.
Russian TV reporter today: But think about how many times we have heard similar apologies from the United States and allies since 2001.
John Nicholson, then commander of the U.S. Army in Afghanistan: I apologize deeply. The air strike we launched destroyed an Afghan hospital, causing the death of hospital workers, patients and family members.
John Allen, then commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan: I sincerely apologize for any crimes committed (the United States) and apologize to the President of Afghanistan.
Foreign netizens: The Australian army deserves to be tried for killing innocent people indiscriminately.
Some foreign netizens said that after killing, is it over with an apology? Never!
“It’s really a sin. These indiscriminately kill innocent criminals and terrorists are the same. They deserve the trial they deserve.”
“These criminals are really anti-human. Their governments should feel ashamed when they are tampering with the human rights situation in other countries. These criminals, together with the Australian government, should be prosecuted.
Foreign netizens: The Australian investigation report is only the tip of the iceberg
Other netizens pointed out that the investigation report released by Australia is only the tip of the iceberg.
“It’s just part of the white killings of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq. Basically, all the white countries that have gone there to fight have done this kind of work.”
“The U.S. special forces have done similar things, especially the SEALs.”
“Where is the U.S. investigation into the crimes of the U.S. military?”
“It’s shameful for NATO and their civilization.”
