Právo - Czech Republic | 08/09/2009

This is how to lose the war

Following the contentious air strike in Kunduz province the leftist daily Právo laments the high civilian death toll in Afghanistan: "According to the UN, over a thousand civilians were killed in the first six months alone. Moreover this foreign deployment is also difficult for the soldiers. They need equipment, weapons and logistics. All the Taliban fighters need is their mountains. And then the American, German and also the Czech soldiers require at least the tacit consent of local public opinion. The German commander relied on information from informants and put all his eggs in one basket. Based on data relayed to him from aircraft he exposed the black dots on the ground as Taliban fighters. And the result of the strike? Dozens of dead civilians. This is how to lose the war."
