Funny, I know some people just don't get it. NPR is fair and balanced. Especially when the Military decides to tell it's side of the story. This story I heard on the radio. It cleared much up in my mind as to what is happening on the ground during these raids from the US Military perspective. This makes what the US Military is doing seem like the correct solution for all concerned. People will be caught up in the middle of the conflicts, but that is the reality of urban conflict.
