    I understand the reason of Afghan’s people, but war’s raids have ever produced civil victims.
    It is not for a deliberate volunty, but for the possibility, on the contest of a war, that this happen, as it has ever happened.
    We condolence with civil victims family and pray them to understand that we have any intention to provoque such a hard problem.
    Please, consider the circumstances.

    I completely support the use of night raids.
    Those locals who are moaning about them can console themselves with the thought that in three years or so, a large part of the Western forces will have left Afghanistan so they will have no more night raids. They will only have the Taliban.
    If they want the raids to stop, they should be very careful what they wish for.
