Pentagon "punishes" privates and sergeants for bombing a hospital in Kunduz

34
Information Agency Associated Press reports that 12 US troops (private and non-commissioned officers) suffered disciplinary punishment for hitting the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Recall that as a result of the aerial bombardment of the hospital, 42 people died. News agency notes that among those subjected to disciplinary punishment there are no representatives of commanding staff - not a single American general responsible for the operation in Afghanistan.


The material of American journalists states that there was not a single criminal case against those responsible for the war crime in Kunduz. The main punishment is disciplinary action and other administrative measures.

Pentagon "punishes" privates and sergeants for bombing a hospital in Kunduz


The Doctors Without Borders organization refuses to comment on Washington’s decision, stating that comments will be received only after the Pentagon announces its decision officially. However, at the moment there is no official explanation from the Pentagon, but there are only publications in the American press.

Recall that earlier the representative of the US Department of Defense called the bombing of the hospital in Kunduz "accident."

        They thought that their bosses would try to blame everything on the Russians again .. But the hospital in Afghanistan, as an evil, was far from the Syrian theater.

      We all remember how they punished Lieutenant Kelly ...
      The trial of the lieutenant lasted from November 1970 to March 1971 of the year and ended with the recognition of Kelly guilty of killing 22 civilians. The original sentence (life imprisonment) was changed in August 1971 of the year to 20 years of imprisonment. In fact, Kelly spent three and a half years under house arrest, after which he was pardoned in 1974.

    12 US military personnel (privates and non-commissioned officers) have been disciplined for hitting the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghan Kunduz.

    It is ridiculous that they canceled the dismissal and removed the salary floor and reprimanded it in a private matter. And nothing more. It is necessary to punish those who gave them the coordinates and orders.

    not a single criminal case was brought against the persons responsible for the war crime in Kunduz. The main punishment is disciplinary action and other administrative measures.
    And let's remember what happened to that creature that destroyed the Vietnamese village of Songmi and its inhabitants. And this is considering that the whole world demanded to punish the executioners ...

    Well, they’re, like, exceptional ... Just think, 42 ​​people were bombed in the hospital. An accident, the Pentagon said ... am

    But in general ... Predictable reaction. If in the United States soldiers and officers are imprisoned for every "prank" or "accident" with the "natives", then, given the number of such incidents, their army will quickly end ...

    There was a hospital on one floor of the building, and
    on the other - the command post (communication center) of the Taliban.
    The Taliban, of course, did it on purpose, so that
    they were not bombed. And the doctors were ordered to keep silent under threat
    "ax head".
    Afghan civil authorities pointed to the target, but
    not specifically, but said that the whole building is an object of the Taliban.
    But the Americans did not check the Old ground intelligence and bombed ...
    Punished, I think, guys from intelligence. Pilots can't know
    what's in the building.
