They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Afghanistan: EU complains as civilian deaths mount

German Defence Minister Franz Josef Jung said Monday that he had complained to NATO about the increased number of civilian casualties during US-led military operations in Afghanistan.

"I have told the NATO Secretary General ... that we have to make sure that such operations are not carried out in the future," said Jung, whose country holds the EU's rotating presidency until the end of next month.
