General Petraeus’s War - An FP Photo Essay | Foreign Policy
Afghan demonstrators gather in Kabul on March 6 to protest the killing  of nine boys, ranging from 9 to 15 years old, by a NATO air raid in the  northeastern province of Kunar. Hundreds poured into the streets of the  capital, some chanting “Death to America.” The attack was “one of the war’s worst cases of mistaken killings by foreign-led forces,” according to the New York Times.  Petraeus issued a personal apology for the killings in a NATO  statement. Afghan President Hamid Karzai rejected Petraeus’s apology for  the killing of the nine children, saying that the Afghan people ” are tired of these incidents and excuses, and condemnations cannot relieve their pain.”

Iraqi Day of Rage Planned for Friday, Feb. 25

thepoliticalnotebook:

It is a date being discussed in Iraq’s tea shops, on television and in the streets with varying shades of hope, fear and cynicism.

On Friday, thousands of Iraqis are planning to take to the streets for their own “day of rage,” hoping to harness the popular anger that has swept through much of the Middle East but has failed to gain much traction here.
