  1. Hearts and minds. In little pieces. Scattered.

  2. Notice how the media will always call it just “an” air strike, without coming out and saying whose air strike, like an air strike is an event that just naturally happens, like an earthquake or lightning.

    It’s like in the US, the media always uses the phrase, “An officer involved shooting” instead of saying the truth: a police officer shot someone.

    This is a form of deception. Don’t fall for it.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-afghanistan-violence/air-strike-in-afghanistan-kills-eight-civilians-residents-idUSKBN208211?il=0) reduced by 71%. (I’m a bot)

  4. Can we please remove Trump from office? How is this not a war crime? He likely personally ordered it. I’m betting he encourages the military to target civilians. Bush was a bad president, but even he had a heart and only targeted military personnel or confirmed terrorists.

    Trump is perhaps the worst monster to ever hold any public office.
