    Afghan delegation confirms killing 65 civilians killed by NATO during operation

    So where are all these terrorists we're supposed to be fighting?

    All I ever see or read about is how the Afghan and Pakistan people are outraged over civillian casualties.

    Is this a real enemy, or is this about gas pipelines?

    I think the war on terror is bunk.

    If the terrorists weren't using civilians as human shields, there wouldn't be so many civilian casualties. Wanna blame someone? Blame the terrorists.

    It doesn't matter. Killing civilians hurts our cause. What works as an argument for some here won't like work for those who care about those killed there. And it grows the threat we face.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    During combat operations, civilians will die. When the enemy is consistantly using civilians as human shields, even more civilians are going to die. At some point, the civilians have to use some common sense and say, "if these clowns weren't hiding in my village, my village wouldn't get snake-n-naped". If they're unable to realize that reality, then their future holds more civilian deaths during operations against the enemy.

    If you were even close to right Germany and Japan would forever be our enemies, but that apposite is true. They are our Allies after we bombed their cities to rubble.

    This picture is most often used as what happened to the Cities by our nukes but this is Tokyo after a B-29 raid.


    This is Dresden Germany after an allied bombing raid.


    So I request that we stick to the facts and the truth.

    Wow... the liberal mind at work, or trying to work. If you had your way during WWII we'd be speaking German. Unreal.

    Besides making the world free from the Nazis, freeing Europe after the cold war, nothing. We need to bring back the draft. Liberals serve first.

    Or, how about you don't commit to an operation when the damage to the civlian population is more excessive than the direct military advantage gained? There's this thing called the Laws of War that separates us from the enemy quite distinctly.
