Afghan Civilian Casualties

*
A Few Ragheads here, a Few Ragheads there

An area (there are many) where there has been no change in tactics followed by the Obama administration is the deaths of Afghan civilians in attacks against militants. Just as they took place under President Bush, civilian casualties continue under President Obama. The Taliban could be benefiting in recruiting every time innocent civilians die. But that is not going to stop the killings. Somehow deaths of villagers in far away Afghanistan do not have any impact on American military strategy. They are expendable in our war against terror.

In expressing her regret, Secretary of State Clinton sounded no different than Ms Rice when she held that position.

Voice of America.com reported:
Yes, no doubt the issue would be discussed during visits to the White House by Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan and Asif Zardari of Pakistan. One can be certain that despite public statements -- sound bites -- nothing would change.

U.S. Casualties in Iraq

After declining for a few months, the number of U.S. casualties spiked up in April. 19 soldiers died in Iraq.

What did they die for? Saddam Hussein is no longer there. The Iraqis now have an elected government that we approve of. The internecine violence between the Shias and the Sunnis is not going to end anytime soon.
