Do u know that since the US commander in Afghanistan declared a policy of minimizing civilian casualties, the number of civilian casualties in Afghanistan has increased?

"Nato’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said it was aware of the charges by some Afghan officials that its soldiers had killed civilians during a raid against extremist rebels in the northern province of Baghlan.   “On Sunday we saw 11 helicopters coming,” Mohammad Ismail, the district chief for Tala Wa Barfak, where the incident took place, told AFP.  “Some of the helicopters landed deploying troops. They carried out attacks there. They killed eight people, all civilians,” he said."
