    (KABUL, Afghanistan) — An Afghan wearing a security forces uniform turned his weapon against U.S. troops Saturday, killing three in eastern Afghanistan, officials said, in another apparent attack by a member of the Afghan forces against their international allies.

    The shooting took place in Gardez, capital of eastern Paktia province, Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi, an Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman, said. The area, near the border with Pakistan, has been a front line in fighting with the Taliban and other militants.

    Sad. Best thing to do is get out of this area and with a SOFA this time. How's Singapore these days?

    Singapore is doing great. Thanks. We will be having the F1 here this evening. Perhaps you can watch it from there.

    Yeah, we've been there way too long for such a s***hole. Bush should have kept the pressure on there instead of starting a war in Iraq and taking the eye off the prize. Then we might have actually made a difference there.

    Totally agree. Nation building (or maybe I should say re-building) only works if there is something to repair (e.g. Japan and Germany in the wake of WW2). You can't build a society of un-nationalized goat herders and farmers into a modern state all the while fighting an insurgency.
