The sky is falling

Baylen over at To The People brings us the tragic story of two children accidentally killed by U.S. operatives in Afghanistan on an anti-drug mission. The kids were inside of some tents that the plane slammed into after the pilots overshot the runway.

Ironically, if the crash had occurred a few minutes earlier, the narcs would have also taken out some opium growers. Instead, they just killed the little kids, as well as two Ukranian crew members on board the plane.
The casualty count could have been higher if the settlement's men had not left earlier to work at a farm picking opium poppies.
The full story is here.
