In Afghanistan, a suicide bombing killed eight people and wounded more than a dozen.  This attack was right after the Holy Islamic Id Holiday. The attack took place in front of a  mosque as worshipers were rushing outdoors for a funeral. For this attack it seemed, according to the provincial governor Munshi Abdul Majid, as if they were targeting three commanders who were killed.  Children were put in serious danger and are sometimes incorporated in the attacks. Also it turns out that of all civilian deaths 75% are caused by insurgents such as the Taliban. Insurgent leader, Muhmar Omar has asked in his very lengthy speech that the insurgents avoid civilian casualties. Do you think Mr. Omar's speech will work? How could the children be protected? How about all civilians? Let us know what you think.
