An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
A suicide bomber driving a motorcycle packed with explosives rammed his bike into a joint Afghan-American patrol on Monday morning in eastern Afghanistan, killing at least 14 people including three U.S. troops and their translator, officials said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast, which came a day after the U.S. death toll in the war in Afghanistan reached 2,000 troops. Such joint patrols are considered key to the training of Kabul’s security forces but have been cut back by a string of insider shootings of international troops by their Afghan allies.
In Monday’s attack, the bomber struck a group of Afghan police and American troops shortly after they got out of their vehicles to walk through a market area in Khost city, the capital of Khost province, said provincial government spokesman Baryalai Wakman.
You can NOT negotiate with these “people”. You can NOT reason with them. You beat them into submission, THEN they surrender….or they are totally destroyed! This is a war! You fight a war to win, not make nice with the enemy. Islam is NOT a religion of peace! It is a cult of destruction and domination! Those damn fools in both the White House and the Pentagon better get this straight!
