Todd Starnes, a well-known radio presenter in the US, called for the destruction of an Afghan city for every American killed in the attack perpetrated by the Islamic State on Thursday at the Hamid Karzai International Airport, in which 60 people died, including 12 soldiers of your country.

Starnes wrote on Twitter: “For every American killed, a city in Afghanistan should be wiped off the face of the Earth.” Such comments earned the journalist harsh criticism on social media, where many accused him of advocating crimes against humanity and branded him a “terrorist.”

“This is how terrorism begins. The idea that you can kill people who are innocent of the crime you are avenging, that is terrorism. Do not be a terrorist,” claimed the Libertarian Party of Texas.

Many users pointed out that the United States and its allies were already on their way to reaching those lurid proportions with nearly 20 years of warfare.

“The United States has already killed almost a quarter of a million Afghans and turned 5.9 million into refugees. I think they have done enough damage to Afghanistan,” said a netizen on Twitter.

Following the criticism, Starnes deleted the post from her account. However, the clarification he offered continues for now on his profile: “If the Taliban are not threatened with this type of language, the killing will continue. You have to play hard with evil,” he said.

Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden declared that his country “will not forgive” the perpetrators of the attacks carried out this Thursday in Kabul, and promised that “he will hunt them down and make them pay.”
