Hamid Karzai scolds his Western allies

Afghan President urges American and NATO troops to change the way they fight


 

Afghan President Hamid Karzai opened parliament yesterday by urging American and NATO troops to change the way they fight: “We don’t accept civilian casualties in our land in the war on terrorism. We have never complained about our police being martyred. Thousands of our police have been martyred. We have never complained about the deaths of our soldiers. Hundreds have died. If thousands are killed in the war on terrorism… we will accept that. But we don’t and will never accept civilian casualties in our land.”
