More civilians now killed by US, Afghan forces than by insurgents

A UN report claims that Afghan civilians are for the first time being killed in greater numbers by US and pro-government forces than by the Taliban and other insurgent groups. During the first three months of 2019, international and pro-government forces were responsible for the deaths of 305 civilians, whereas insurgent groups killed 227 people.

US drone strikes kill minimum 90% civilians according to the CIA's own report. Minimum 200,000 civilians died directly from the war in Iraq and another 600,000 indirectly. This happened because according to Bush "God told me to end the tyranny in Iraq." The US is committing one of the largest terrorist campaigns in history. It's military should be legally confined to it's own country.

with the drop in insurgent activity the losses will become more lopsided but that just means stricter control of ROE is needed to reduce the casualties

Get us out Trump. It's a truly godless part of the world and we're not helping. Defend Israel and support the few true democracies in the region.
