'Death to the Canadians'
Shaken Afghan villagers blame Canuck mortar for bloody deaths of two boys
By THE CANADIAN PRESS

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- Angry Afghan villagers chanted "Death to the Canadians" and paraded the blood-spattered bodies of two young children through the streets of Kandahar city yesterday after a tribal elder accused Canada of firing the shell that killed them.

Residents of the village of Salehan, about 15 kilometres southwest of the city, staged an angry protest outside the white gates of the Kandahar provincial council office after an elder in the war-racked district of Panjwaii laid the blame for the tragedy at the feet of Canadian Forces.

The allegation, which prompted the army to launch an immediate investigation, was one of several conflicting accounts to emerge yesterday about exactly what caused the fatal explosion.

The protest, however, left little doubt that the tragedy had shaken the village - a community financed in part by Mohammed Bin Rashid, the ruler of Dubai, and dedicated, ironically, to housing those maimed and dismembered by war - to its foundations.

How much do you want to bet that it was the Taliban that did it?

I read a story somewhere that one of these groups - it might have been Hezbolla - stored the bodies of dead children so that they could bring them out for situations like this and claim that they were killed by this attack or that by the evil Zionists/Americans . . . .:rolleyes:

I think that they did that during the last Lebanon incursion by Israel. There were a number of "casualties" who were surprisingly clean for having been removed from rubble, and lacked the kinds of injuries that would have been sustained by explosions.

And who can forget the Palestinian funeral footage taken by an Israeli drone that showed them carrying a body under a flag on a litter, then dropping the "corpse," who promptly got up and ran away.

Let's try Canada for war crimes!

Oh wait; that only works if they were Israelis.

There is a very important aspect of this story that we have overlooked . . . . . this is all Bush's fault. ;)

Thanks to the South Park guys, there's already a theme song for the trials!

Blame Canada, from the South Park movie. The movie is hilarious, and the Academy was chicken to not vote it for the best song Oscar. Even Robin Williams' performance of it at the awards was hilarious.
