Different Day, Same Shit

Why is it that everywhere the US military goes, the people don't welcome them with flowers and candy? Those of us who pay attention have noticed the double talk regarding "success" in Iraq, and the nearly non-stop calls for American withdrawal by every legitimate (or otherwise) Iraqi representative.

Now (again) we direct our attention to Afghanistan. It seems almost likely that children, civilians, and wedding parties are used as shields/ targets by military forces specifically because of the headlines they garner;

Foreign and Afghan forces killed five children in two separate incidents Monday, further inflaming tensions in the country over the killings of civilians by troops from the U.S. and other countries.
