    Translation: NATO recruited 7 new families to the resistance today...

    And possibly parts of the Afghan military

    Sure, when we make a mistake they ignore that the other side does things like that intentionally and repeatedly. They are unaware of the Taliban and their methods. They don't consider what our winning means for their lives or what the Taliban winning means. They just like us until we make a mistake and then they become Taliban. What a simpleton conclusion.

    Point granted and corrected.

    Although I doubt when they think 'the West', anyone other than America is first to come to their minds.
