    KABUL, Afghanistan - Three International Security Assistance Force service members died following a suicide vehicle born improvised explosive device attack in Kabul, Afghanistan today (12/27)

    DVIDS - News - ISAF reports casualties

    (It is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities)

    Screw me into the ground sideways if there is ANY reason to stay with these parasitic Afganis dithering around for "better terms"

    here's the deal -sign it. Oh you won't? well then,,,get the **** out of Dodge City yesterday..last train out of Kabul (etc)

    WHY ARE WE STAYING ON A BUNCH OF BLACKMAILERS TERMS???? Haven't we given enough blood and treasure to that pile of rocks???

    What's it going to take folks to finally understand we are not wanted, there isn't any way out of this but just LEAVE..

    Karzai just opened the door, and we're like...."uh.. well maybe we'll stay where we're not wanted"...
    If we don't stay, the Karzai government folds up, the Taliban takes over and we are going back to start over, from scratch, in ten years.

    That tells me that the enemy hasn't been destroyed and we need to launch an offensive to destroy him.

    I wonder...does anybody, anywhere know what they're doing? Not that I can see, but if turmoil is wanted, we got that covered, and we're good at it!

    Good morning, apdst.

    Good morning, sugar!

    I believe the Leftists are so eager to create a scenario so they can declare defeat, that they'll do anything they can to undermine the efforts of our forces deploye to foreign battlefields.

    No we're not going to "start over", the US isn't going to re-invade. We might wind up doing the thing we should have done from the beginning, and just run a counter-terrorism policy
    insetad of all out couner insurgency.

    I have very serious doubts about the long term viability of this Afg. gov't - the history of the place being the "graveyard of the empires". shows it is a feudal society at heart
    that only unifies to throw out occupiers. we are seen as occupiers. The only question remaining is if more Afganis will support the US lproped up gov't
    or go the route the Taliban calls us - occupiers, and occupiers must be thrown out along with their gov'ts

    Good morning, apdst.

    Yes Lady P......the Taliban knows whats it doing.....and they don't care that we lost. They will continue to keep going after our people. Even if they miss. Like they did Christmas day.



    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The U.S. Embassy in Kabul was hit by indirect fire before dawn on Christmas Day but no Americans were hurt, as attacks elsewhere in Afghanistan killed at least six people Wednesday, officials said.

    Two rounds struck the sprawling embassy compound but it was not immediately clear which part of the complex, and a U.S. Embassy official said the incident was under investigation.

    "At approximately 6:40 local time in Kabul, approximately two rounds of indirect fire impacted the U.S. Embassy compound," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. "All Americans are accounted for and no injuries were sustained."

    Indirect fire can refer to either mortars or rockets.

    The Taliban promptly claimed they fired four rockets at the American Embassy on Wednesday and said they inflicted heavy casualties. But the insurgents often exaggerate their claims.....snip~
