The US Defense Department’s report released on Wednesday remains in constant discussion. An independent review by the Pentagon, the headquarters of the US Department of Defense, has found that no misconduct or negligence was the cause of the deaths of innocent civilians and children in a US drone strike in Kabul in the final days of the war in Afghanistan. That is why the Pentagon has not recommended any disciplinary action.
A defense official said a review conducted by Air Force Lieutenant General Sammy Said pointed to errors in communication and target identification and confirmation. According to the official, the attack was a mistake despite prudent measures to prevent civilian deaths. However, his report has not been released yet. SED was asked to investigate the case of a drone attack on a car on August 29.
Nine people died in the attack
Jemerai Ahmadi and nine members of his family, including seven children, were in the car. Everyone died in the attack. Ahmadi (37) had been working for a long time for a humanitarian aid organization in America. The Pentagon said on Wednesday that China was rapidly increasing its nuclear weapons. It is estimated that it could achieve the target of 1000 nuclear weapons by 2030, which is part of China’s ambitious military build-up.
Fast growing stock of Chinese weapons
Recent estimates show a dramatic increase in China’s weapons stockpile. Previous reports had estimated that by the end of the decade, the number of weapons in China could reach close to 400. The US has 3,750 weapons and is not currently considering increasing it. The Pentagon warned in a congressional report referring to the People’s Republic of China that the PRC aims to modernize and expand its nuclear weapons for the next decade.
