No one’s winning in Afghanistan
Eight youths, tending their flock of sheep in the snowy fields of Afghanistan, were exterminated earlier this month by a NATO airstrike. They were in the Najrab district of Kapisa province in eastern Afghanistan. Most were reportedly between the ages of 6 and 14. They had sought shelter near a large boulder, and had built a fire to stay warm.
