Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents vowed revenge Monday against “sick-minded American savages” after a US soldier killed 16 villagers in their homes, while the Afghan parliament demanded the perpetrator be put on public trial in the country.
The Taliban would “take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr,” the hardline Islamist group said in a statement on their website.
“If the perpetrators of this massacre were in fact mentally ill then this testifies to yet another moral transgression by the American military because they are arming lunatics in Afghanistan who turn their weapons against the defenseless Afghans without giving a second thought,” the statement said. . .
