Kandahar break-out is a real blow for the allies in Afghanistan as hundreds of Taliban escape

Hundreds of Taliban use tunnel to bolt Kandahar jail in security 'disaster' Who the hell is checking these prisons Colonel Klink or I see nothing I hear nothing Schultz? I happen to believe the terrorists had inside help and you probably do too.

This Kandahar break-out is a real blow for the allies in Afghanistan

Monday's break was the second dramatic escape at the prison in three years. In 2008, as many as 1,000 prisoners -- nearly half of them Taliban members -- escaped after militants detonated a truck bomb against the side of the prison compound.

What I want to know is doesn't someone inspect that place? How do you dig a massive hole in the middle of the floor a 1/4 mile long and no one sees it? Come on, I don't care how dangerous they are, restrain them 6 times a day and inspect the premises. Shoot them if they are a threat, we do it to our own people. I am sick of these games what are we stupid?

We catch and imprison them and Afghans let them escape or help them. It isn't just escapes we can not trust these afghans. They want our money but screw us at every turn we can't do this any more. Can't we get the message? This all hits too close to home for me. In relation to us being the enemy I have done a series about the Afghan soldiers we are training "the so called rogue Afghan soldier's " killing their trainers. Here
6 Americans were just killed at the Kabul airport by a 20 year career officer after an argument.. WTF Eight NATO troops and a contractor died Wednesday after an Afghan military officer opened fire in a meeting — the deadliest episode to date of an Afghan turning against his own coalition partners, officials said.

Some of you know a few of my sons are in and out of there right now out. I was very concerned for my youngest who went directly from Iraq to Afghanistan where he was helping train soldiers. I was more concerned for the people he was training than the radicals out in the field. I had him concerned with not taking an eye off these people and sleep in a secure area with one eye open as men have been killed by so called rogue soldiers while they slept. He made it through this time unscathed. I would like this over before he has to go back again.

My concern now is my career EOD son. He is home and running the EOD school and out of physical harms way at least from the extremists. He like many others takes the many deaths and maiming of his friends in stride. Now he has 20 friends on the wall and has lost count of those with traumatic injuries. The friend helping him PT his troops has what he calls a bouncy leg having lost his own in Afghanistan. A few weeks ago he and friends were at a fund raiser for a gunnery sergeant friend who lost one leg and half of another.

It was touch and go for a month and they ended up having to dig out much of his crotch but last I heard he will live. Last week it was another good friend he trained and was stationed with in South Korea and Germany. He was just fragged in Germany "situation still unknown" He was in the infamous Korengal valley and took shrapnel over 85% of his body.

Due to the fact that he is a big man at 250 pounds he is so far alive. They just took him off the ventilator and he is State side. Our troops are giving up too much. Honor our troops, leave with honor, they did their job. America and NATO must get out! We have been there over 9 years, more than twice as long as WW2, now our longest war! If Afghanistan wanted freedom from the Taliban they would already be trained and fighting for it instead of just letting themselves be killed as pawns, helping their friends and allowing our troops to be killed by them.

Our soldiers did their job leave now with heads held high not our tails between our legs like in Saigon! Give food and supplies to the Afghans and if they want their freedom they will fight for it. We should be helping Pakistan who has proved they want their freedom from Taliban and Sharia law. Don't keep adding more troops this is Afghanistan graveyard of Nations. Cheat history get out now!
