London Blitz(1941)- Casualties- 22,000
Ito nga ang ilan sa mga makasaysayang pamomomba na nangyari sa mundo, mapapansin na ang namatay sa bagong Boston Bombing ay 3 lamang, di gaya ng iba. May nagtanong kasi na reporter sa White House, na maikokonsider din ba na "act of terror" ang nangyari naman noon na airstrike sa Afghanistan. Ito nga ang kanilang usapan. Ang pangalan ng reporter ay si Amina Ismail journalist sa McClatchy.
REPORTER: I send my deepest condolence to the victims and families in Boston. But President Obama said that what happened in Boston was an act of terrorism. I would like to ask, Do you consider the U.S. bombing on civilians in Afghanistan earlier this month that left 11 children and a woman killed a form of terrorism? Why or why not?
JAY CARNEY: Well, I would have to know more about the incident and then obviously the Department of Defense would have answers to your questions on this matter. We have more than 60,000 U.S. troops involved in a war in Afghanistan, a war that began when the United States was attacked, in an attack that was organized on the soil of Afghanistan by al Qaeda, by Osama bin laden and others and more than 3,000 people were killed in that attack. And it has been the President’s objective once he took office to make clear what our goals are in Afghanistan and that is to disrupt, dismantle and ultimately defeat al Qaeda. And with that as our objective to provide enough assistance to Afghan National Security Forces and the Afghan government to allow them to take over security for themselves. And that process is underway and the United States has withdrawn a substantial number of troops and we are in the process of drowning down further as we hand over security lead to Afghan forces. And it is certainly the case that I refer you to the defense department for details that we take great care in the prosecution of this war and we are very mindful of what our objectives are.
Mapapansin na iwas si Jay Carney, maligoy ang kaniyang sagot. Pero hindi yun ang punto. Ang Punto ay, Amerika man, o Al Qaeda, ang may gawa, kahit na China o North Korea o Iran, kaunti o marami man ang namatay, basta ang katahimikan ay nagulo, ikaw man ang nauna, o ikaw ang gumaganti, pareho lang yan ACT OF TERROR!
