    Is there no respect for the happiness of one day?

      they are terrorists... they have no respect for anything... and sorry there @Martin, this little anti-religion kick you must be on is quite pathetic... comparing a terrorist act by a bunch if freaks to 'religion' as a whole. Talk about generality and stupidity.

    It's sad but goes to show that they hate anybody who isn't exactly like them. Blowing up their "own people"? If they keep it up, there will be no one left but the bad guys. That would sure make finding them with a predator or ac-130 easy now wouldn't it?

      Obvious troll. Don't give this guy the satisfaction of an angry response, it's what he wants. Let his comment die away.

    Bombing wedding celebrations is the specialty of the NATO and I suspect this one is their usual target.

    not everyone in Afghanistan is a terrorist ;D that is an ignorant comment on something as sad as bombing a wedding. even if a terrorist was in attendance, it'd be too big a PR risk for the US to have it on the news. I'm sure once more is known, it'll probably come out it was a actual terrorist group targeting someone who has more then likely spoken against them to the public

    This "news" fails to tell a little important detail: WHO bombed the wedding? Were the bloody Talibans or another of those "intelligent" drones used by the USA? Either way, it will not make any difference for those poor deads – but maybe for the others. Or not?

      That's exactly my point...

      The main stream news is so slanted... they don't want to tell you who actually did it, or of course your anger would be directed in the right place. They'd rather avoid those silly little facts and manipulate you into hating who they want you to hate... conservatives.

      More and more, the majority is figuring this out... all of these little "reporters" and "journalists" are no different than the little "save the planet" freaks... everything in the name of their cause.

    Some one should tell politician that muslims suffer too from such ugly actions of extremists. Extremism exist in all religions Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and all people should open their eyes and minds to see the actual picture, and not single out one religion or group. These people were killed by these pigs were muslims.

    Well, that's an awful short message. Who bombed them? Maybe a mission from the US troops gone bad?
