The Pentagon will pay "comforting" money to victims of the bombing in Kunduz

38
The Pentagon decided to offer the relatives of those killed and injured by an air strike at the Afghan hospital "consolation payments", reports RIA News statement of the representative of the military department Peter Cook.




Recall, the hospital "Doctors without Borders" in Afghan Kunduz on October 3 was attacked "by mistake" (as the White House representative Ernest put it) with US Air Force planes. As a result of the raid, 22 people died, part of the building was destroyed.

“The Ministry of Defense believes it is important to respond to the consequences of the tragic incident at the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. One of the steps that the ministry can take in this direction is consolatory payments to civilians who have not taken part in hostilities and wounded (as a result of the strike), as well as to families who died as a result of US military operations ", - said Cook, without specifying the size of the estimated payments.

He noted that the amounts will be determined later. "If necessary, the administration (US) will require additional powers for this in Congress," said Cook, hinting at quite decent payouts.

However, the wording “consolatory payments” instead of “compensation” means that Washington has not officially acknowledged its guilt in the deaths of civilians.

    And what about the hundreds of thousands of people killed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria?
    "Скромняги" стеснительные... Никакого бюджета США и бумажных фантиков, печатаемых ФРС, не хватило бы, если бы компенсировать деньгами те загубленные по всему миру миллионы, если не десятки миллионов, человеческих жизней, в результате войн и переворотов, которые совершили америкосы...!!!

          Well, about the excavators, they decide. Caterpillar razrulit. As for the doctors without borders, I agree with you, that they were silent about the tribunal. Everyone is sitting under the money and under the impudent uncle.

        Iraqis accused the United States of helping terrorists by discovering US parachutes at the Islamic State. This is confirmed by the footage posted on Twitter by journalist Hader Ah-Hoi.

        In the video, a group of Iraqis demonstrates allegedly American parachutes and crates.
        “Look, take that off too. These are American parachutes. We are located in the Baiji oil field. Who has not seen this here yet? You've all seen it, ”Infowars quotes a man speaking parachutes and crates to the operator.

But it will be even more interesting on the basis of the fact that the payments made by the Americans will stop all mention of it, saying that if we paid, it means popular forgiveness - there was nothing!

      В том-то и беда, за то они и стреляют по всему миру, чтобы идеальным решением любого косяка был не трибунал для США, а "выплата «утешительных» денег жертвам бомбардировки". Напечатают, вывезут из США и как вроде тех денег и нет. И расплачиваются ими где-нибудь в Голландии с проститутками или ещё где. А вот если бы все проблемы не решались долларами, тогда и в самом деле Америке тяжко пришлось бы под грузом того, что они натворили.

      In 1945, after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, one of the American generals, almost Eisenhower, said something like that if America had not been the victorious side, they would have been judged as Germans in Nuremberg ...

    Такое отношение может быть только у государства на которое никогда не падали бомбы. А на счёт выплат как их не называй. Какой то их финансист ещё в тридцатых произнёс знаменательную фразу(её даже в календариках печатали на равне с другими такими же) - "если вашу проблему можно решить с помощью денег, значит у вас нет проблемы".

      When the Americans shot down an Iranian passenger Boeing, they didn’t even apologize; severely said - the mustache is correct; war type.

      Когда украинцы сбили российский Ту-154 - это была "ошибка" (они же не американцы, им приходится извиняться типа).

      Когда малазийский Боинг по неизвестным причинам упал - сразу "виноваты сепаротерророватники"; трибунал-с.

      This is all in the routine of filthy Americans.

      When THREE countries (USA, Canada (this is not a country at all) and ... Ukraine) vote in the UN General Assembly against a resolution banning the glorification of the UPA and all kinds of law-enforcement agencies, this is a normal democratic process.

      And when Russia votes against the creation of an illegal Boeing tribunal (they have never been created; ICAO has always dealt with) - ahhh! to deprive them of the veto.

      This is all shit; ordinary brown shit.

      Most likely it will be humiliating for them when they cannot buy a rope with soap for their money.
      And yes, you just can’t stop being surprised that the Americans seem to have learned how much a person’s life costs.
      I can only say that the life of an American costs exactly as much as they value the lives of others.

    I post shoals of stars and stripes through 2011 inclusive, so as not to forget what. New, I think, and so everyone remembers. Question: Who presented what to them? And how did they compensate?

    The Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghan Kunduz on October 3 was attacked “by mistake” Lord! Forgive me, a sinner! But, I pray! Erase the USA (I mean the FSA - the Fascist Ameripids! Not native Indians!) From the face of the earth with your divine eraser!
    Хотя бы "По ошибке!"

    Right now - only FOR!
    Add - rest in peace, you are our nasty! Earth you rest in peace!
    And everyone involved in the funeral let him throw a handful of land on the grave, the mound will grow above the pyramid of Cheops!
