3. I don't see what they hoped to get out of killing babies so it makes me

think it is ISIS. Is ISIS in Afghanistan? Because it seems to me the Taliban wanted to be recognized by other countries at this point. Maybe it was a Reichstag Fire? So many psychopaths in this world. Still it is hard to accept. Did it really happen?

12. Yes, they are there; the Afghan state said they arrested a leader a couple of days ago

As the OP link says, the hospital is in a mainly Shia area; IS calls them heretics.

4. Makes me wonder why we were there in the 1st place.

People like this don't want democracy. There ain't no Tom Jefferson or George Washington in their DNA. Not that I think we have ever tried to create real democracy since the 60's. It was always about economic opportunism.

This is truly horrifying. Please take care of yourself. Be safe.

9. Really?

I seem to recall that similar claims were made in the past which were simply untrue. So I want to see more verification here.

I know. Facts. Silly things that they are.

Hussein threw babies out of incubators in the first war with Iraq under George Bush I. That was false propaganda that fooled everyone including amnesty international. This time it was a terrorist shoot out in a maternity hospital that went on for hours. Try cbc news.

16. Debunked.

No babies were thrown out of incubators. Do some research before passing crap on.

17. Isn't that what Applegrove wrote? That the claim was bunk?

It's a long war, this whole Sunni vs Shiite thing. We help one side, then the other, as if one side is "good", the other "bad".

It's time to end this Afghan adventure.

clearer.

"I happen to be one that thinks the corona virus is overblown..."

Or a different kind of debunking?

20. They were confused. They thought i was saying the Saddam Hussein

incubater babies being ditched US propaganda was real. It was false propaganda from a war 30 years ago. I added the "false" in my thread to be clearer. The MSF maternity hospital being attacked yesterday is true. What did you mean?

21. 24 dead in all; MSF Head of Programmes says they targeted the maternity ward

The attackers had walked straight past a number of other wards, all closer to the entrance of Kabul's Dasht-e-Barchi hospital, and made straight for the maternity unit.

To him, it meant one thing: this was no mistake.

"What I saw in the maternity demonstrates it was a systematic shooting of the mothers," Bonnot, Medicin Sans Frontiere's (MSF) Head of Programmes in Afghanistan, said. "They went through the rooms in the maternity, shooting women in their beds. It was methodical.

"They came to kill the mothers."
