The French government is struggling with damage control in the latest incident of civilian killings by NATO troops in Afghanistan, when French soldiers opened fire on a carload of civilians in Kapisa Province, killing three.

The soldiers were operating a checkpoint in Kapisa and say that the car ‘failed to stop’ and was assumed to be a suicide bomber. Among the three slain were a small child and a pregnant woman.

Preliminary reports have the French embassy issuing a formal apology for the killings, though NATO for its part simply reportts that “it appears that there had been no insurgents in the car” which was attacked.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack and rejected the notion of an apology as meaningless. Civilian casualties have been on the rise over the past several months, with NATO killing increasing numbers in both air strikes and night raids.

    Though NATO is listed as the perpetrator; the US/Israel death machine is responsible!

    Karzai`s constant condemnations, without action, such as kicking these murderers out of Afghanistan, are meaningless..

    the french are proving themselves to be just as parasitic and subservient to the jews murderous demands as the americans are.

    Karzai only cares because he lives there! I betcha he did not know what he was getting into. When the Bush Boys pushed him into being the”President Of Afghanistan.” NOT AS EASY AS YOU THOUGHT! BEING A ZIONIST PUPPET THERE IS IT KARAI! I’ll betcha also that everyday he wonders when the Afghan people will give him a one way ticket to meet Anwar Sadat in HELL!
    Sleep tight Karzai! LOL!
