Karzai: Freedom saved 89,000 Afghan children this year

When you hear someone say:
"War is not good for children or other living things,"
you can know that person is being an idiot. When a public schoolteacher teaches your 8 year old:
"War is not good for children or other living things,"
have your 8 year old ask their schoolteacher about this:
"KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Close to 90,000 children who would have died before age 5 in Afghanistan during Taliban rule will stay alive this year because of advances in medical care in the country, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Sunday.

The under-5 child mortality rate in Afghanistan has declined from an estimated 257 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2001 to about 191 per 1,000 in 2006, the Ministry of Public Health said, relying on a new study by Johns Hopkins University.

The U.N. and aid agency Save the Children both hailed the advances in health care in Afghanistan."
When your leftist aunt says: "I just want there to be no war," say: So, you are in favor of the Taliban killing 90,000 Afghan children every year?

B/c I criticize the U.N. sometimes, I wish to point out the U.N. is doing a good job aiding and abetting medical care in Afghanistan.

Look at the little girl in the beautiful red and gold outfit ... she is not happy to be hanging out with Hamid Karzai.
