But NATO pays $1200 per death. That should take care of the problem

"The conflict in Afghanistan killed nearly 350 children in 2009, a top UN official said on Wednesday. Radhika Coomaraswamy, the UN secretary general's special representative for children and armed conflict, said 346 children were killed in Afghan violence last year. "131 of these were by aerial strikes, 22 by search-and-raid by Special Forces; 128 were killed by anti-Government elements, including assassinations and suicide bombings," she said during a visit to Kabul.""
