Is it a cultural thing?
Reading a Reuters article about Pakistan bombing a terrorist camp (gee, Reuters loves those quotation marks, don't they?), ran across the following:
Villager Ajab Nur said around 40 members of Afghanistan's ousted Taliban militia and allied Islamic militants had gathered at the time of the attack, and many of the fighters were killed in air strikes. But according to Nur, dozens of civilians also died in a subsequent raid after they gathered to survey the damage in the area located around 50 km (30 miles) from the Afghan border.
"There was a gathering of about 40 or so militants early this morning," said Nur. "Two bombs fell on them. Then villagers went to see what had happened ... and there was a second attack and many people were killed."
"Whoa, those Taliban nutjobs just got bombed up somethin fierce...Let's go trapise through the attack area!" Yeah, great idea. I'd think the logical response to people getting bombed would be to avoid that location, lest you end up next. Then again, I'm an ign'ant-ass American, what do I know...
