A tragedy that could have been easily predicted and avoided
You say that as though people don't get murdered by Americans in the United States ~ 10,566 so far in 2018 alone. As for Afghan civilians murdered during the war in Afghanistan, 2,640 Afghans were killed in the war in the first nine months of 2017, and 5,379 were injured in that same period. So 2 American civilians killed is not even close to comparable. As for U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan, only 2,301 were killed between 2001 and 2013 (that's a 12 year period), compared to 6,700 Afghan soldiers killed in just 2017. (The U.S. government now hides the number of Afghans killed, because they fear the American public might get upset & start agitating to stop the war.) Given that WE are making war on THEM, we can hardly complain when Americans are killed by Afghans. If you invade a country & kill a lot of people, some of those people that are being attacked are naturally going to fight back. Seriously, get real!
