What about afghan civliians killed in Afghanistan?

see here too
how many civilians got killed and how many terrorists? which number is more?

May be the soldiers think like this too....Oh!! so this is why this war doesn't end....
.
NATO troops kill afghan civilians (perhaps not intentionally or sometimes may be)with your drones and the relatives of those civilians killed join the Taliban to avenge their dead ones ,some of them are ready to blow themselves up next to your soldiers,so the western forces not only kill terrorists but also create more of them (not intentionally) .....you burn their books(intentionally ,being aware that they are radicals) ,they kill your soldiers ,so you want to kill them and they want to kill you too ,it's like a self sustaining chain reaction.

the US military doesn't use those tactics anymore. We don't simply blow up houses indiscriminately. There's a hearts and minds strategy being used, and it's working a lot better.

It need not, just showing their anti-Islamic attitude like for example burning their holy book are enough to lose local support and without support from civilians or ordinary people of Afghanistan (who are almost all muslims),they can't win.

the anti-islamic attitudes are held by individuals within the US military. I highly doubt that anti-islamic attitudes are written out in the training of soldiers, etc. in the US military.

Telling him no implies losing 10 years of war in Afghanistan. I agree with Karzai, people who burned Koran should be put to trail to bring peace in Afghanistan. Letting them go free would harm U.S. interests, given U.S. wants the support of local people.
Those 'people' are US military officers. The goal of the US is not to simply to bring peace to Afghanistan! The Taliban brought peace to Afghanistan prior to 2001 by lopping off the hands and heads of those who failed to grow a proper beard. If that was the only concern the country could be carpet bombed and starved into submission. Peace along with some form of pluralistic government and rule of law, not the street mob, is the US goal.
