Killing Civilians

In WWII (World War II) the resistance attacked the occupying Nazis with bombs in often suicidal attacks. In 2012-08 the Taliban made suicide attacks against ordinary Afghan citizens. What on earth are they thinking? I could understand them attacking the occupying Americans, or Afghan collaborators, but why ordinary citizens? This certainly won’t win them any hearts and minds. It won’ punish the Americans or make them leave any sooner. It almost as if they are angry and frustrated, so take it out on the easiest victims. Maybe they see all Afghans but themselves as active collaborators.
