Afghanistan again

In the upcoming fall and winter terms, in my History of Islamic Civilization course, I will certainly be discussing Afghanistan, including the most recent events. Given that, I feel an obligation to students in that course and other faithful readers to point out a statement by Afghan President Karzai (above), taken from the Associated Press via CBS News:
"It is not acceptable for us that in all this fighting, Afghans are dying. In the last three to four weeks, 500 to 600 Afghans were killed. (Even) if they are Taliban, they are sons of this land," a clearly frustrated Karzai told reporters in Kabul.
Then go back and read my post from May 26.
