Another reason there haven't been many Dutch casualties is because they don't stop their convoys in the middle of unfriendly cities because a slow driver is in front of them, or a local is struck by a vehicle. That kind of shit looks bad on camera, but so does a convoy of destroyed vehicles and dead soldiers because they made themselves a target by halting in unfriendly territory. There is a give-take relationship in dealing with Afghanis. Observing local customs is cool, but not getting fucking killed is also a benefit. Case in point: Canadian officer removes his helmet when talking to local elders, a sign of respect for local customs, and is attacked with an axe and suffers massive brain trauma as a result.
