Afghan Murders 6 NATO Troops in "Misunderstanding"

From the BBC:

A gunman in an Afghan police uniform has killed six service members in eastern Afghanistan, Nato forces say.

The man opened fire during a training mission in Pachir Wagam district, Nangarhar province, said Nato. He was also killed in the incident.

Local officials said they believed the incident was not premeditated, but had arisen out of "a misunderstanding".

Nato has not revealed the nationalities of the dead soldiers, but local sources said they were American.

"An individual in an Afghan border police uniform turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Forces (Isaf) during a training mission today, killing six service members in eastern Afghanistan," Monday's statement said.

This is the country we're supposed to turn into a First World democracy - one where shooting 6 people dead is classed as a "misunderstanding".

Being brought coffee instead of tea is a misunderstanding; this is the cold-blooded, cowardly murder of men doing their duty.

Still, we shouldn't be too harsh - perhaps the killer misinterpreted the Koran? Apparently it does happen.

One of the great things about the koran, is that it gives you free reign to kill anyone, without fear of punishment.

If you want to kill a girl/woman, just say she has been unfaithful, a man, an infidel, Jew, Christian, whatever box you fancy ticking.
