Weekly Casualty Lists: Week 48

The collateral impact of war:

-Half of Afghan parliament, unable to deal, walks out (Roggio) in angst over Baghlan incident a week ago in which security guards over-reacted to an attack, killing large number of civilians.
-Stress on U.S. soldiers continues unabated: Filed under "what was asked of us", IBC reports - "The number of civilians killed by US forces during November is now 75, including 2 children."
