NATO Air Strike Kills 25 Afghan Civilians

Another incident in where civilians are killed in Afghanistan. The fact that the Taliban deliberate use civilians as human shields does not change the fact that they benefit greatly every time collateral damage such as this occur. It is a great propaganda tool. And the reason its occurring has to do with the lack of enough ground troops to defeat the Taliban. Vietnam is proof that a war based on air strikes will not succeed:
A NATO air strike in southern Afghanistan early Friday killed 25 civilians, including nine women and three young children, a provincial police chief said.
