Civilian deaths in Afghanistan war surge


edition.cnn.com

Civilian casualties resulting from Afghanistan's war have spiked, jumping some 24 percent above figures from last year, the United Nations reported Friday.

The Human Rights Unit of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan announced it recorded 1,013 civilian deaths in Afghanistan during the first six months of this year. That compares to 818 Afghan civilians who were killed during the same period in 2008, while 684 civilians were killed during the first half of 2007.

Western military airstrikes killed 30.5 percent of the civilians.

That's just crazy
And i'm more than positive it's even more than that

This is an extermination, that's all it is


The report concluded that Taliban insurgents are "basing themselves in civilian areas so as to deliberately blur the distinction between combatants and civilians, and as part of what appears to be an active policy aimed at drawing a military response to areas where there is a high likelihood that civilians will be killed."


Taliban does exists and they need to be abolished.
But taliban insurgents?
Insurgency has nothing to do with religion, I don't believe there's any such thing as taliban insurgents.

Plus Insurgents are not America's problem, it has nothing to do with them.


Meanwhile, the UN noted that NATO forces have redrafted their tactical directives, in an effort to reduce civilian casualties.


This is true, they decided to stop counting how many deaths occured from their attacks.
That's their new tactic!
