ISAF Drops Candy To Afghan Children, Kills 51


International Security Assistance Force inadvertently killed 51 Afghans today near the city of Mazar-i-Sharif while attempting to drop candy to a group of children. Approximately 1.4 million M&Ms were to be delivered via Container Delivery System in a single package with a weight of 1500 lbs. Due to a malfunction in the static line, the parachute failed to deploy and the container crashed through the roof of a local school at nearly 100 miles per hour. Upon impact, the force of the rapidly settling candies caused the sides to explode outward, causing what physics professor Dr. Rosella Schwartz described as, “essentially a 360 degree anti-personnel mine full of chocolate flechettes.”

Gag article

I believe this is a "gag" article but I think it shows how little regard for human life some people have (especially when they are located in other countries). Hundreds of thousands of innocents have been killed/harmed by collateral damage of the U.S.'s foreign policy and while this article tries to make light of that with humor it still touches on the underlying truth that 1) the government (and by extension the military) is inefficient and 2) actions always have consequences and they are not always the ones you would expect
