From the aftermath of the attack in Kandahar which resulted in 17 civilian deaths, David Loyn reports that Afghan citizens appear fed up with a decade of war. The worsening ties between U.S. troops and Afghans have been exacerbated in 2012 by the U.S. troops burning of the Koran and the March 11 shooting.
