Let me get this straight. A bunch of muslim terrorist cutthroats who target civilians as an SOP are threatening revenge over dead civilians.
The Taliban is vowing revenge against the U.S. after an American Soldier allegedly shot and killed 16 Afghan civilians in a Sunday rampage.
In a statement on their website, the militant group promised to “take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr.”
……The Taliban claimed responsibility for several attacks last month that the group said were retaliation for the Americans burning Korans. Afghan forces also turned their guns on their supposed allies, killing six U.S. troops as violent protests wracked the country.
……The veteran American Army Staff Sergeant allegedly 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, methodically shooting Afghan civilians.
U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan stepped up security following the shootings out of concern about retaliatory attacks. The U.S. Embassy has also warned American citizens in Afghanistan about the possibility of reprisals.

……Pentagon Spokesman Capt. John Kirby told Fox News in an interview Sunday that the shooter is in his mid-thirties and is a father. He was deployed to Iraq twice, but this was his first time being deployed to Afghanistan.
Watch the leftwing media feeding frenzy over this shit. Rolling Stone, a death-warmed over magazine from the late 70′s, wrote a hit piece on a handful of “kill team” Soldiers from the Army’s 5th Stryker Brigade. The New York Times smears the military on a regular basis. While an infinite number of muzzie murders and atrocities gets no coverage, bad press involving American armed forces is sensationalized for months.
Lost in the yellow journalism are the justifiable actions.
Army 1SG John Hatley and two other Soldiers were convicted for killing the muslim terrorist cocksuckers who fired at them in an attempted ambush. The 1SG and his Soldiers chased them down and found their weapons cache, but that wasn’t sufficient evidence. They were told to let them go. They didn’t. Instead, they took out the trash.
The Army tried unsuccessfully to courts-martial LTC Allen West (now Congressman Allen West (R-FL), whose unwavering courage saved the lives of his Soldiers.
In another example of the military screwing its own, a SEAL team member was charged with assaulting Ahmed Hashim Abed, one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq, the mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. Evidently, the muzzie thug got a little boo boo during transport to captivity. He told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it. Who the hell cares if the little hadji got a bloody lip. I’d have probably made him eat the butt of my weapon until he crapped pieces of it.
The day before the Army Staff Sergeant’s rampage in Kandahar, two American Army officers were assassinated at Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry in ‘retaliation’ for the burning of a 7th Century screed.
All things considered, the Staff Sergeant probably killed a few terrorists mixed in with those 16 dead muzzies. I just can’t muster up a whole lot of give a fuck.
Bushels of civilians are killed in every war. That should not prevent us from doing what is necessary to defeat the enemy.
Our current enemy doesn’t wear identifiable uniforms. Taliban and Al Qaeda are notorious for recruiting and blending in with the locals and screeching “war crimes!” when you kill them and some non-combatants because they just so happen to be in the same village.
Our Soldiers are saddled with fucked up ROE, while the enemy kills carte blanche. Killing the enemy should not be a Courts Martial offence. Soldiers like 1SG John Hatley and 1st Lt. Michael Behenna should never have been prosecuted in the first place. They, unlike the military hierarchy that bullied them, did what they were trained for.
The Staff Sergeant will be tried, convicted, and sent to Leavenworth, while terrorists are continuously released from GITMO to pick up where they left off.
As for the MSM, this is just more fodder for their anti-military tirades.
