AFGHAN LEADER SEEKS U.S. TACTICS SHIFT




DEMANDS NEW APPROACH TO WAR ON TERROR; U.S. ANNOUNCES DEATHS OF 4 GIs

KABUL, Afghanastan---Afghan Prsident Hamid Karzai urged the international community to reassess its approach to the war on terror Thursday, saying the deaths of hundreds of Afghans in fighting with U.S. led forces was "not acceptable."

Meanwhile, the U.S. military announced the DEATHS OF 4 AMERICAN SOLDIERS IN EASTERN AFGHANASTAN.

A clearly frustrated Karzai said the approach being taken by coalition forces to hunt down militants DOES NOT FOCUS ON THE ROOTS OF TERRORISM.

"I strongly believe...that we must engage in disarming terrorism by stopping their sources of supply of money, training, equipment and motivation," Karzai said during a press conference.

In recent weeks, Afghan and coalition forces have launched a massive anti-Taliban operation across four southern provinces aimed at killing or capturing fighters blamed for AN UPSURGE IN VIOLENCE.

More than 600 people, mostly militants, have been killed in recent weeks as INSURGNETS HAVE LAUNCHED THEIR DEADLIEST CAMPAIGN OF VIOLENCE IN YEARS. AT LEAST 14 COALTION SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN COMBAT SINCE MID-MAY.

"It is not acceptable for us that in all this fighting, Afghans are dying. In the last three to four weeks, 500 TO 600 AFGHANS WERE KILLED. (Even) if they are Taliban, they are sons of this land," he said.


U.S. SOLDIERS KILLED

The 4 U.S. soldiers who were killed in combat Thursday in eastern Nuristan province while conducting security operations to block the movement of enemy forces, a coalition statement said.

One soldier was wounded in the fighting in the province's Kamdesh district and evacuated for treatment. He is in stable condition, the military said.

Ground troops and attack planes were called in to continue the assault through the night, the military said. It was unclear if there were any enemy casualties.


***But according to the Bush administration and his Republican cronies in Congress..........."Things are getting better!"
