Richards: "Accept more risk"

Asked about last week's fuckup, General Richards says NATO drivers will "accept more risk" in order to avoid accidents like the one that set off a riot, and that he aims to be "a very people focused and a very people-friendly force," and "use military power not necessarily just to defeat the Taleban but just as importantly to secure the future of their villages and their localities."

I wouldn't hold out much hope for opium eradication on that basis. So far he seems to be displaying quite a lot of clue.
