Nato air raid 'kills civilians' (emboldening the enemy)

Nato air raid 'kills civilians' (emboldening the enemy)
At least 13 Afghan civilians have been killed in a Nato air strike near Kabul, a provincial official says. Thirteen others were injured, the head of Wardak provincial council said. The Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) confirmed it had bombed an "insurgent position" but said it had no evidence civilians died. Civilian deaths have risen as conflict in Afghanistan has worsened. It is often difficult to establish if claims of civilian casualties are accurate. The BBC's Alastair Leithead in Kabul says the areas where civilian deaths are reported are often remote and hostile, and the dead are buried within 24 hours. It’s almost as if we have forgotten about this weeping wound of a war, the ‘front line’ in the creation of a pseudo united states of Taliban, I wonder how NATO intends to win a war in a country that has a history of destroying armies, now that opium is back and is the only cash crop worth having, how long will it take for ideology to give way to cold hard capitalism as it has for the South American Marxist guerillas. Afghanistan shouldn’t have been invaded and the West will have to live with the consequences of invading, which seem to be a lot of dead Afghanistanis.
