I'm sure the Japanese government is investigating to find out what has happened!

Mental and medical health facilities in Afghanistan are scarce. Last year, the whole country had only one doctor/psychiatric hospital.

The US has done there what it did in Iraq - armed and trained local criminals to act as death-squads.

Iraq had recovered remarkably from its low point in the 50s (when 2/3rds of the population was tricked out of the country) and had a thriving higher education system.

These professors were unarmed and patriotic and no threat to anyone - the death-squads were tasked to wipe enough of them to force the remainder to leave the country (as, almost uniquely, they could do relatively easily).

Iraq has been left a wasteland, not just physically but intellectually.

Do you remember RiverBend the Iraqi blogger? She still reckons she was lucky to get out of Iraq, settle in Syria and get out of there before it turned really ugly. We know how much she admired the US before the invasion - its in her blog. She's understandably been left immensely bitter at what the US did to her entire family.

RIP Keisuke Suzuki

A good man was killed, and a couple of haters came into this topic to trash it all with fakemongering rubbish for some evil belief!

The US targeted and destroyed (twice bombed) the Red Cross warehouses in Afghanistan in 2001.

They were well set back from other buildings, boldly marked on the roof and there were never any crowds around them (aid distributed from trucks elsewhere).

The Red Cross had been operating (freely?) under both the Russians and the Taliban, they only withdrew under the Americans.

Five foreign medics were ambushed and killed sometime later - the killers were known to the US but were protected.

The Americans have abused medics (as they did re OBL and the vaccination program) and systematically blocks medical aid in order to stop westerners seeing their crimes.

The US has targeted and killed journalists for the same reason. Or just from spite, bombing out the al-Jazeera offices in Kabul and Baghdad in 2001 and 2003.

The US has even boasted of destroying the Falujah hospital, to stop journalists visiting the wounded.

Details of any of the above if you don't believe me.

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling,
way down in the valley tonight.
There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye,
and a blade shining oh so bright.

There's evil in the air and there's thunder in sky,
and A killer's on the bloodshot streets.

Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising,
Oh I swear I saw a young boy down in the gutter,
He was starting to foam in the heat.

Why did you attack the Taliban for allegedly interfering with medical care when the US is so much worse?

Especially when the problems there are almost wholly caused by the chaos and suffering that we deliberately imposed on their society!

Under the Taliban, a woman could travel safely across the entire country.

Under the heel of the brutal oppressor, women cannot walk past a police station.
