Colonial tactics

US and NATO forces are killing civilians in Afghanistan on regular bases, and the New York Times is busy with this story:  "There are no statistics about how many Afghan girls masquerade as boys. But when asked, Afghans of several generations can often tell a story of a female relative, friend, neighbor or co-worker who grew up disguised as a boy."  The White Man always looks for bizarre stories in colonized countries to justify the colonization itself.
