    Well.....now they have guided focus. Although most Military and ex Military do keep an eye on things.

    Myself, I was surprised CBS was reporting it at all.

    Calling in a B1......they would need to be aware of what Fighters that the Pakistani had in the Air to. The Pakistani Military says it has killed over 25 Taliban all along the Southern Border.

    Oh, that's CBS's words. The American Team is Investigating now.
    So is the American Team on the ground and if so they would need security. Or are they just going over all the communications records?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    They aren't running the story for the Moment. All they said was the American Team was investigating the Hows and Whys.....I have the Pakistani Piece up in Asia. Since that was the second attack the Pakistani Taliban launched on that Airport. Here they get their asses kicked and still talk about how more attacks are to come.

    It appears Negotiations with both Taliban Organizations wont be taking place.

    A statement from the coalition said all five soldiers died on Monday but did not give further details on the attack or the nationality of the soldiers. Coalition policy is for home countries to identify their military dead.

    "The casualties occurred during a security operation when their unit came into contact with enemy forces. Tragically, there is the possibility that fratricide may have been involved. The incident is under investigation. Our thoughts are with the families of those killed during this difficult time," the coalition said in an announcement.....snip~

    NATO says 5 service members killed in Afghanistan


    This has been up all night long. This is what the Headline Reads. 5 NATO service Members killed in Afghanistan. Yet.....here is what we know from the Start. Their 5 Americans.....Coalition Forces Spokesperson tells us this? Not US BO Team Memnber with a title. What they are trying to tell us is that all 5 of our Troopers were killed by friendly fire. First they said could be a case of fratricide. Now they are saying they may have called for air cover and gave the wrong coordinates and had their own selves Bombed.

    If this is the case this would be the Worse such case of friendly fire on the ground that we have had in the Entire Afghan War. Oh.....there is one slight addition to the story. <Koff, uhm, koff,ahem, clears throat.....The Taliban have taken credit for the Attack!

    So here we have a story.....that they knew it was 5 American Troopers Killed. Yet they Report it as NATO Forces. What say ye?


    They may have been serving alongside other Nato forces so they were unable to confirm at first what nationality they were. Regardless they are reporting it as American now.

    Mornin Crue. Not for those who believe in the Mission. We can't leave just 9800 there and then draw down to half the following year.

    Problem with BO and his teams thinking is and has always been. Do whatever to get out of the War. Not looking at the fact.....the War isn't over.

    I haven't seen any cheering on this thread or any other for that matter for the Taliban. I have seen a lot of distrust for this president, but that isn't the same as cheering for the enemy. If you want cheering for the enemy, actually down right helping and abetting them, go back to the Vietnam War. Back then there were a lot of Americans who didn't give a hoot whether we got our POW's and MIA's back and in fact one could say most of the anti war movement was rooting for the VC and NVA to kill us instead of us killing them. I think there are a few of that movement on this site today, but today they are backing the swap and saying that they care about the soldiers. Politics of the times I suppose. I am an old cynic from way back.

    That's life, the Taliban got what they wanted. No need for further negotiations at this point in time. Not until they get another bargaining chip.
