Counter-insurgency by other means, one line item at a time

Pallets loaded with 1,901 bags of charcoal briquettes. In Canada, charcoal is for the barbecue, symbol of the lazy days of summer with friends and good times. In largely treeless Afghanistan, it is a primary heating fuel. Tools, water filters and other small articles ? 691 in total. In Canada, they could wait for the next round of yard work. For an Afghan family, they could mean a regular supply of food and clean water.
