If anybody dies in Afghanistan, it is either because the Taliban refuse
to let in aid trucks, or because the knobby kneed wimps at the aid
groups are too chicken to transport aid. If you are driving an aid
convoy, you only need to transmit your position to US force to make sure
they are aware of your presence. We are executing a very surgical
campaign, and anyone that is fleeing does so only because they are
either the bad guys, or they beleive the BS the bad guys spout out. I
see that this doesn't exclude the gullible in the west as well...
