in the Shin Kalay region of the Nad Ali district, Helmand Province. An occupation force patrol (from FOB Bandit in Nad Ali) was engaged by the resistance. The occupation soldiers fired mortars and small arms. The result was two wounded children, one of whom died later. Occupation forces fire into structures BEFORE ascertaining whether civilians might be present. The NATO propaganda stresses that the Taliban fire from civilian areas (the tired old human shield pablum). Most of the resistance lives in the areas where the fighting occurs. What should they do? Go stand up on a deserted ridge and engage the US/NATO forces?
