Just a day after reports emerged that a US air strike against a wedding party in Kandahar earlier in the week killed at least 40 civilians, another US strike in Badghis Province killed at least another 20 people, with at least seven of them reportedly civilians.
If this is all some insidious Taliban plot to prevent the US from using air strikes, they appear to have sorely overestimated the US military’s reluctance to kill large numbers of innocent civilians.
OK, what does the massive bombing of civilians guarantee, in a land war which cannot be won from the air??
It guarantees that you radicalize those left standing even further against the existing US-supported government. If this is the outcome the US and NATO have wanted, by gosh, they're right on target!!
