"Marines in Afghan Assault Grapple With Civilian Deaths" from The New York Times.

Described in this article is how a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System has killed Afghan civilians in Afghanistan. This defensive system was found non-defective even though it missed its target by 300 meters. The suspension of the machine was lifted after it was found non-defective. Some would disagree with allowing a defensive gun to be allowed back on the battlefield when it is putting Afghan citizens lives in danger. The machine has killed a total of 12 people; five women, five children, and two men. This could be a potential problem in Afghan areas where Americans are stationed because it puts Afghan citizens in danger.
