1. I beg to differ

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/02/14/172009312/airstrike-in-afghanistan-renews-concerns-over-civilian-casualties

Dunford was called in to discuss what was initially reported as an ISAF airstrike in Kunar province that killed 10 civilians late Tuesday night.

Civilian casualties especially as a result of ISAF or U.S. airstrikes have been one of the most toxic political issues in Afghanistan over the last few years. Karzai has long called for a ban on airstrikes, and responds to U.S. and ISAF strikes that kill civilians with especially sharp criticism.

Last summer, the issue came to a head after an airstrike on Taliban militants in eastern Logar province killed 18 civilians.

Karzai excoriated ISAF and called for a complete ban of airstrikes anywhere near residential areas no matter what. Karzai met with the then-top U.S. and ISAF officials in Afghanistan Gen. John Allen, ISAF commander, and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker after which Allen released new guidelines restricting the use of airstrikes.
