Petraeus Ushers in Dramatic Increase in Afghan Air Strikes

Petraeus had been a major proponent of air strikes in Iraq despite the danger to the civilian population, and given that his entire strategy seems to be to shoehorn Iraq into Afghanistan wherever possible (and in many cases where it isn’t possible) it is perhaps unsurprising to see the increase in attacks, and the growing number of resultant civilian casualties in Petraeus’ Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder when the phrase "body count" will re-emerge on corporate news coverage of this war, as it did during the Vietnam War.
