US expresses regret for deaths last August but blames Taliban for taking position near village

The issue of civilian deaths has outraged Afghans and strained relations with foreign forces which are in Afghanistan to help fight the insurgency. The Afghanistan president, Hamid Karzai, has warned US and Nato for years that they must stop killing civilians on bombing runs against militants, saying the deaths undermine his government and the international mission.

The US military sound exactly like the Israeli IDF - "It's their fought - They made us kill them!"
