Germany condemns killing of aid workers in Afghanistan

7th August 2010, Comments 3 comments

The German government strongly condemned Saturday the murder of eight foreign medical aid workers, including a German woman, in northern Afghanistan.

"The federal government is indignant over the dreadful attack in northern Afghanistan, which according to the information available, included among its victims several foreign aid workers, including a German citizen," government spokeswoman Sabine Heimbach said in a statement.

The German government calls for a full inquiry into the attack and "the punishment of those responsible for the crime", she said.

The bullet-riddled bodies of five American men and three women, an American, a Briton and a German, as well as two Afghans, were found in the northeastern province of Badakhshan on Friday, according to a provincial police chief.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it killed the foreigners for being "Christian missionaries".

    @ Zabihullah Mujahid: Are you as stupid as you sound?

    “They were lost. ....they tried to escape and were killed,” said Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban.....“They carried Bibles into Dari, maps, GPRS systems. They used to map the positions of the fighters’ Taliban, said the spokesman.

    Let's examine this statement.
    They had GPS systems and were lost? Not likely. They tried to escape? Possibly, when they knew you were going to shoot defenseless humanitarians. Could they have simply used the GPS systems to find their destination? First you claim they are lost then you claim they have the skill to use their GPS to report Taliban fighter positions. What, in between administering medical aid to the people?

    I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missiles Development Program. I have shown in my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.', which can be found by a Google search with the title, that all terrorism and insurgencies in the Indian subcontinent and in much of the rest of the world is sponsored by the C.I.A. Both Pakistan's ISI and India's RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) function as branches of the C.I.A. and participate in terrorism and insurgencies throughout the Subcontinent, under direction of the C.I.A. Yes, the ISI secretly supports the Taliban but it does so under direction from the C.I.A. whose modus operandi is support for ALL sides of a conflict to control the course of the conflict in service of its own goals. The goal of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and partial occupation of Pakistan is eventual occupation and overt colonial rule over the Subcontinent as a whole. This will not be permitted and all those participating in this enterprise, including the U.K., will be duly punished; see my blog. The document leak currently in the news has been made in preparation for abandonment of this goal and withdrawal from Afghanistan because of steps I have already taken for the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States by India with 5,000 thermonuclear warheads and extermination of its population; see my blog. It also shows how India has been kept economically and technologically down by military means and how exterminating the United States' population will solve that problem. American propaganda is full of stories of medics killed and a teen age girl disfigured, etc., by Afghans fighting the invaders; for the atrocities collectively committed by Americans on the most intelligent, most handsome man on Earth, who happens to be an Indian and whose toe nail clippings are worth more to mankind than the 300 million Americans combined, see my blog.
