Afghanistan – After five years of occupation.

Posted by QB on September 13, 2006

Taliban forces appear to be gaining ground in southern Afghanistan. NATO’s top military commander says more troops are needed there to back the alliance’s violent struggle against the Taliban. A widening insurgency has left hundreds of people dead, 21 militants were killed today in NATO air and ground attacks.

KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) — The Taliban have claimed responsibility for a massive suicide car bombing that killed at least 18 people — including two U.S. soldiers — near the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.

“A coalition convoy was the target of a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device this morning near the U.S. Embassy here,” according to Master Sgt. Chris Miller. The convoy was comprised of three armored Humvees.

Gen. James Jones, NATO’s supreme allied commander, said on Thursday that the troops have encountered “more resistance than we originally thought.”

Dozens of insurgents and five Canadian soldiers have been killed during the operation.

At least 35 British and Canadian troops have died in the past five weeks, and a town in the south has fallen under Taliban control.

“The tenacity of the resistance is a bit of a surprise,” he said, adding that NATO knew that expanded operations — such as the ongoing Operation Medusa — “were going to stir up a hornet’s nest.”

“The fighting is extraordinarily intense. The intensity and ferocity of the fighting is far greater than in Iraq on a daily basis,” Brig. Ed Butler, the commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, told ITV news on Friday. He echoed Jones’ call for more troops.

The other news is that Bush will speak on “war on terror” and their success almost daily addressing selected group of people. Where and what are the success of the military occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. The NATO Commandar also describe Taliban to engage in fierce fighting with holding grounds instead of hit and run attacks.

Iraq situation is as bad as Afghanistan with no sign of improvement in near future and the war supporters which includes Joe Lieberman has no shame calling this stupidity necessary to make America safe. Iraq was secular country under Saddam Hussein rule which was very much hated by Al Qaeda and all other jihadis organization. Al Qaeda hated Saddam Husssein as much as they hate Bush and there was no Al Qaeda before US invasion and occupation in Iraq. Bush is wrong that America and world is safe without Saddam Hussein. The fact is that US and the world has become a more dangerous place after the removal of Saddam Hussein.

Iran and North Korea knows very well that US and their allies are weak and in no position for any other wars. Iran and North Korea knows that US will invade if they don’t have nuclear weapons. I don’t blame Iran and North Korea for developing nuclear weapons to defend their countries.
