U.S. Air Raid Goes Astray, Hurts 8 Afghan Soldiers
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=578&nci...

July 25, 2004

KABUL (Reuters) - Eight Afghan soldiers have been wounded in an erroneous aerial bombardment by U.S. forces in central Afghanistan, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Sunday.

Four of the soldiers, all from the newly U.S.-trained Afghan National Army, have returned to duty, said Zahir Azimi.

The others were taken to hospital, he said, but gave no word of their condition.

The bombing occurred on Tuesday in Deh Rawud district of Uruzgan province, scene of a joint operation by Afghan and U.S.-led troops against guerrillas from the ousted Taliban regime.

The U.S. military had earlier said that 10 Taliban fighters were killed in the attack and four Afghan soldiers wounded in the gunbattle with the Taliban.

Can someone tell me why we are still dropping bombs on countries that are supposedly under our control? Everytime we do, we end up killing the wrong people. It doesn't seem to be a very effective way to get the bad guys or get control of a bad situation?
