Forget Viagra - If You Want Afghan Support Protect Civilians



I poked fun a few months ago at the Pentagon when someone broke the story that the U.S. military was trying to win the hearts and minds of the Afghan people by passing out Viagra. But now comes word that a UN report is indicating that civilian deaths in Afghanistan are up 24 percent. So it would seem to me that, instead of passing out the blue pill, we should be intensifying our efforts to protect non-combatants there.

To be clear, the UN report blames insurgent bombings for many of the deaths. But it also points a finger at air strikes by international forces.

Viagra is not a cure for erectile dysfunction but a treatment. Viagra is a treatment that will help you have sex when you couldn’t before.
