US Poised to Commit War Crimes in Marjah

"If [NATO forces] don't avoid large scale civilian casualties, given the rhetoric about protecting the population, then no matter how many Taliban are routed, the Marjah mission should be considered a failure," said an analyst with the International Crisis Group.

Today, AFP reported, military helicopters dropped leaflets over Marjah as radio broadcasts "warned residents not to shelter Taliban ahead of a massive assault." Doesn't this suggest that the invading US forces may regard any civilian alleged to be "sheltering Taliban" as a legitimate target, including women and children?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This offensive is guaranteed to accomplish two outcomes; to kill a lot of innocent non-combatants, and radicalize those left standing into the waiting arms of the Taliban.
