Civilian slaughter being ignored

Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin has described the Israeli blockade of Gaza as "inhumane".
It may well be, but we have yet to hear the minister's definition of the slaughter of innocent civilians in Afghanistan by the American war machine as it continues its bloodthirsty campaign of revenge for the attacks of 9/11.
To the forefront of this campaign is the cowardly tactic of dropping huge bombs on anything that carries even the slightest suspicion, in the hope the dead will include militants.
