Foreign troops killed nine Afghan soldiers in a mistaken air strike in the southeast of the country overnight, the Afghan Defence Ministry said on Wednesday.
Wow, NATO is doing such a brilliant job of winning the hearts and minds of the Afghanis!
And a memo to those allegedly in charge of the US/NATO military campaign in Afghanistan; somewhere, in those dusty, unopened military history books you chose not to bother looking at before this campaign was designed, there is that little bit about not ever, ever being able to win what is essentially a ground war from the air.
The example used would have been that of the Viet Nam War.
And of course, those who do not understand history (particularly military history) are, unfortunately, doomed to repeat it.
