Winning Hearts and Minds in Afghanistan & Iraq

2,000 Afghanis made homeless by U.S. Special Forces bombing last month, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross, as reported by The International News.

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre
says there are 132,000 internally displaced persons in Afghanistan, and 1,900,000 who have fled as refugees. In Iraq, almost two million people are displaced and another 2 million are refugees, out of a total population of 26.7 million. That's about one person out of every eight.
