Bang! You're ignored
Read this article on the innocent civilians being killed by U.S forces in Afghanistan, and how little anyone seems to care.
I tell you, if I were an Afghan I would be building IEDs as though there was n tomorrow (because there probably isn't). And cheering every time a truckload of the guys invading my country was reduced to vapour. Not a very Christian attitude, perhaps, but when it comes down to kill or be killed most of us wobble a bit in our Christian certainties. Anyway, if were an Afghan I'd be a Muslim, for whom killing in self-defence brings no moral conflict whatsoever.
It's a privilege to live in a country which hasn't been invaded by anyone since the fourteenth century (by the English). I may be wrong, but I think the last time anyone had a crack at invading what's now the USA it was Santa Anna (who may have kicked ass at the Alamo but had his own kicked by Sam Houston shortly thereafter).
