"The number of people who were killed in a militant attack on a maternity ward in the Afghan capital has risen to 24.

Mothers, newborn babies and nurses were among the victims. At least 16 people were injured, the health ministry said.

Tuesday's attack in Kabul prompted widespread condemnation. No group has said it carried it out."

"The Kabul attack began at about 10:00 (05:30 GMT) on Tuesday, and locals described hearing two blasts then gunfire. One doctor who fled during the assault told the BBC that about 140 people were in the hospital when the gunmen attacked.

A maternity ward in the hospital is run by the international medical charity Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) and some of those working there are foreigners."

This is one of these things I'll never understand; no matter what your political or religious goals are, who in the world can think that just killing babys is a good move to pull people on your side???

I think it's telling that no terrorist organizations are even willing to take credit for these attacks.

It surely is. However, somebody did do it and I guess it was because they thought it was a good idea. I don't think they simply got the wrong adress and it was just a mistake.

You are absolutely right- - this was no mistake, and I am just as puzzled as you about why anyone would think this is a positive action for their side/cause.

Because terrorists don’t think like normal people

Shush Matthias. Let the dumb Yanks go back to their simplistic world of black and white.

If it’s black and white to believe normal thinking people do not target maternity wards (or do not commit acts of terror) then yes that’s the world I live in.

Yes, you aren't very good at thinking. We know that. Enjoy your world. I mean if Eric Hoffer could work out how mass movements worked seventy years ago you have no excuses with all the information which lies at the press of a few buttons.

Ok, good thinking person that you are, do you think that a normal person would find it ok to attack a Maternity Ward killing mothers, newborn babies, and nurses?

People have been doing horrific deeds as part of a wider group that introduces them into a framework - or schema - or ideology - whatever - since time immemorial. Whether it is for Islam, Christianity, Communism, Year Zero, Kings, Queens, 'My' Rights, The Tribe, The Emperor, Nationalism, Racial Purity, The 'greater good', or 'progress' people have butchered the innocent. There is something very innate in that exclusionary group dynamic that humanity has never been able to throw off.

Pretending that the people who do horrible things are simply abnormal monsters is reductionist in the extreme, inaccurate and leads to a fundamental misunderstanding of the ways to prevent these kind of things from happening more often.

It is a normal pattern of thinking, acting and belonging taken to it's horrific extreme.

It is not normal for a person to think this way.

I will grant you that it’s normal to expect these horrific acts in any society from time to time.

That's not what you said and that's not what I commented on.

I agree with 3 mehs.

Just never drink the Kool-Aid seems like a good rule of thumb to me.

Well, you think republicants think normal thoughts. Pretty much the same thing.

Terrorists think it’s ok to kill random people including acts such as this. You think that sort of thinking is normal?

Republicans think it's okay to kill random people to preserve an economic system designed to exist with 1% of the people holding 90% of the assets.

What other kind of economic system do you propose that would be better?

You have any quotes of any Republican in history saying it’s ok to kill random people to preserve the economic system?
