Another successful Taliban attack as they kill 24 more of their enemy, women and children in their intimidation program
Roadside bombs kill 24 in western Afghanistan: "Two landmines placed by the enemies of the Afghan people on the road in the Kotali Tark Abad district of Herat struck two minibuses at 8:30 today. As a result, 24 innocent civilians — including women and children — were killed and 11 others injured,” President Karzai said.
Remember a year ago when Mullah Omar ordered the Taliban to attack civilians, Afghan women
Not long ago 10 civilians and all 6 gunmen killed in terrorist attack on the intercontinental hotel attack in Kabul Most of those killed as you may know were civilian workers so the Taliban must be pretty proud of themselves.
Taliban's offensive to destabilize region: In six weeks, more than 200 Afghan civilians have been killed and hundreds more wounded in a series of brutal suicide bombings, gun battles and improvised explosive device (IED) attacks across the country When are those people going to get the message and wake up? The bloody winter offensive targeting them is over but fighting season has begun.
August 18 Bombs Kill at Least 21 in Afghanistan
When are they going to get it? The Taliban are killing more civilians than ever hoping to get in control of them to kill and maim even more as they were before we attacked. Those civilians better realize that and take it upon themselves to start betraying and fighting the Taliban
Sixteen members from one family die in Taliban bomb
Taliban behind most Afghan civilian casualties: Insurgents are now responsible for about 85% of civilian casualties in the Afghanistan War, an increase from last year and a sign that efforts by the United States and its allies to limit their firepower are succeeding
When are the people going to realize the Taliban are there enemies. The civilians are the Taliban's low hanging fruit. They must come together and turn against the Taliban as many tribes in Pakistan have done and some in Afghanistan are now doing.
Despite occasional spineless blows in both Pakistan and Afghanistan on mainly innocent men women and children they are supposedly fighting for but are killing so as to cower and gain control of, we are making headway and it is time to quietly fade away.Our men and women have done their job.Let them come home with their heads held high. Despite expected occasional setbacks and victories for the Taliban this just keeps getting better and better:
Our soldiers did their jobs there meritoriously! Get them out now with their heads held high instead of hung low for joining unnecessarily Afghanistan's graveyard of nations. We are kind of stuck but we should give Karzai supplies to feed and arm his fighting forces otherwise let him use his families drug money, we should make a quicker exit by leaving most of our trucks and supplies behind but hell the Taliban will get them as well as the country anyway.
We could have used drones exclusively and stayed out of Afghanistan in the first place. Afghan civilians are going to get killed whether we are there or not once Sharia law is clamped down on them unless en-masse they wake up and take on the Taliban right now. There future they should know is in their hands not ours!
