US can't even keep its puppets in line
Not even Karzai the Klown is prepared to sit idly while "coalition" forces target and kill every military age male in Afghanistan.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai yesterday criticized the U.S.-led coalition's strategy for fighting terrorism, saying the current approach of hunting down militants is killing an "unacceptable" number of Afghans.It's important to learn the age and gender of the six captured 'others'.* * *
"It is not acceptable for us that in all this fighting, Afghans are dying," Karzai complained. "In the last three to four weeks, 500 to 600 Afghans were killed. (Even) if they are Taliban, they are sons of this land."
Most of those killed in the latest coalition offensive have been Taliban insurgents.
"I strongly believe ... that we must engage strategically in disarming terrorism by stopping their sources of supply of money, training, equipment and motivation," Karzai said.
Yesterday, Afghan and coalition forces raided a "known" Taliban compound, killing eight militants. Six others were captured.
The US had better change its strategy. By attacking every Afghani male who may have the means or the motive to fight back, they are giving thousands of other Afghanis a motive to fight back, too.
