#1 If you're going to be condemned for an action anyway, you might as well deserve it: send in the B-52s full of dumb iron & ArcLight Kandahar.

#2 The U.N. is barking up the wrong tree. The 'taliban' are, according to the Geneva Convention, 'Illegal combatants' in that they hide behind and among the civilian population and wear no badge or identifying markings.

Thus any civilian casualties is *their* fault for deliberately hiding behind civilians - for the sole purpose of causing civilian casualties.

We should simply declare the GC null and void and cut loose the B-52's as Glenmore suggests.

Do you think any enemy in a war with us would have any incentive to follow the GC (which is rather expensive) when there are no consequences?

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
