Brake Failure on US Truck Caused Crash

Accidents happen. I'm sure everyone understands that.

A road crash that triggered deadly anti-American rioting in Kabul occurred because a military truck lost its brakes coming down a hill and plowed into a line of cars, the U.S. military said Tuesday.

Whoa...easy everybody. Accident...remember?

Chanting "Death to America," rioters on Monday stoned the U.S. convoy involved in the accident, then headed to the center of Kabul, ransacking offices of international aid groups and searching for foreigners. Smoke billowed from burning buildings.

Holy shit. We bomb the shit out of your country and you riot over a traffic accident? Little on edge there aren't we? And is Death to America a fucking anthemn over there? What's the rest of the verse?

The death toll from the unrest rose to 11, most of them from gunshot wounds, according to three city hospitals. More than 100 people were wounded.

You know what this world needs? An alien invasion. Seriously. We need something to remind us that, as members of Earth, we are all on the same boat. Literally.
