NATO kills four Afghan civilians

According to an AP (among others) report, NATO killed four unarmed civilians.

The victim’s family said “that all four were civilians driving home from a volleyball game. The youngest boy was just 13, said Rahmatullah Mansour, whose two sons and two nephews were killed in the shooting.”

George Bush asked why ‘they’ hate us. Well, George, you would hate us too if your family was murdered by our military power.

This is another event where American and Western military power wreaks havoc on civilians and in which no one will bear the responsibility for the loss of innocent life. This event seems to demand to abe classified as a terrorist attack on civilians or is there another way to look at it? Which puts the U.S. and NATO on which side, exactly, of the war on terror?
