Taliban to use smaller suicide-vests to limit civillian casualties.

I only wish:

It is NATO which is going to limit itself by using only smaller bombs in Afghanistan. I think it is a huge mistake — only more civilians will die in suicide bombings, unless Taliban will be crushed asap. This is like invasion of Japan going forward because Truman chickened-out and did not drop a bomb on Japan.

Are we fighting a war in Afghanistan, or is it a police operation? What is next — our troops reading Miranda rights to Taliban?

NATO To Use Smaller Bombs in Afghanistan


30 July 2007
NATO officials say they plan to use smaller bombs in Afghanistan to limit the rise in civilian casualties.

NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said the number of civilians killed during fighting between NATO with the Taleban has damaged the reputation of the alliance. He added that NATO commanders recently instructed troops to hold off attacking rebels in situations where civilians would be at risk.

The NATO chief spoke in an interview published Monday by the Financial Times. In the past, Scheffer has blamed Taleban militants for using Afghan civilians as human shields.

The coalition in Afghanistan has been criticized for the number of civilian casualties resulting from combat operations against the Taleban and other militants.

Last month, Afghan President Hamid Karzai accused NATO and U.S.-led forces of killing 90 civilians in air strikes and artillery fire against the Taleban.

July 4th : The Tragedy of Humankind (SARCASM)

This is courtesy of The People’s Cube – please, read it all, it is hilarious:

Prior to July 4, 1776, not a single person in the world starved, got sick, worked hard for a living, or experienced any pain and anxiety. No one had ever been oppressed or unfairly exploited because the oppressive and unfair American system had not yet been created.

Since the beginning of time employment had been equally guaranteed to anyone who cared to work, along with an equal pay of exactly $1,000 a week regardless of outcome, occupation, or the geographical area. All work was equally pleasant and enjoyable. Those who chose not to work also received $1,000 a week in unemployment compensation and Union benefits. Other guaranteed people’s rights included the right to housing and free universal health care, as well as the right to 100% literacy through federally funded public education.
