Afghan Soldier Shoots Five US Soldiers

An individual wearing Afghan army uniform shot and wounded five Nato soldiers in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, the alliance says.

The five, believed to be American, are receiving medical treatment. The extent of their injuries is not known.

The attack took place at a Nato base in Wardak province, east of Kabul.

It is the latest in a series of so-called “green-on-blue” attacks, where Afghans in the police or army attack international forces.

More than 20 foreign personnel have been killed in rogue shootings in Afghanistan this year.

On Sunday, three British soldiers were shot and killed by an Afghan policeman as they left a checkpoint in Helmand province, in the south.

International forces are gradually handing over responsibility for security to their Afghan counterparts.

Most of the 130,000 Nato-led troops will leave at the end of 2014.

On Tuesday, the US and Pakistan announced that Nato supply routes into Afghanistan would re-open after Washington apologised for killing 24 Pakistani soldiers last November.

The BBC’s Kim Ghattas, in Washington, says the US had resisted saying sorry as there is deep anger among Americans about the death of US soldiers in Afghanistan from attacks by militant groups with alleged connections to Pakistan’s ISI intelligence agency.

The decision on supply lines will save the US hundreds of millions of dollars in the run-up to withdrawal.

    I don’t get it. Just leave the same way you just came. Leave all of the war detritus, destroy all the ordinance, but leave the buildings and computers etc.

    Just get up and leave, the Afghans don’t want us in their country, they are suspicious of USA and the Brits & other foreigners, so just get going. You wouldn’t want them bossing us around in the US would you? The concept is not difficult at all, you’ve outstayed any welcome and more guns or money can’t buy determined nationalists, that ruse is stale.

    Nato troops, this is rewriting history before it becomes history.

    “The BBC’s Kim Ghattas, in Washington, says the US had resisted saying sorry as there is deep anger among Americans about the death of US soldiers in Afghanistan from attacks by militant groups with alleged connections to Pakistan’s ISI intelligence agency.”

    Well if the Americans are angry then that’s too bad because their monsters shouldn’t have been there in the first place! The complete arrogance of Americans thinking they can waltz into someones country torturing,raping, and murdering with impunity and then they expect the natives to take it with a smile?!The Muslims know they are facing creatures who are waging a genocidal war against them because of their faith in God. Muslims in the region are the only ones who have every right to be angry with America and western countries for the immense suffering they have to endure for the 9/11 delusion that makes Americans think they can run roughshod over everyone’s sovereignty and break all international laws in order to make IsraHell the next ruling state in the world. It’s the Americans who are out there committing widespread atrocities on a daily basis for over a decade and getting away with it. When a bunch of criminals break into your home to harm your family, the natural reaction is to defend them from the danger by pumping the criminals full of lead so they wont harm anyone else. That is exactly what the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria and many other lands affected by IsraHelli-American oppression are doing. The people of the region are using their God given right to bear arms in order to kick these criminals out of their home by any means necessary!

    Not sure if we’re supposed to feel outrage or not, but what if the title read, “American soldier shoots 5 Afghans”? I try to apply the same callousness Murikans generally feel for Afghans to the ‘brave heroes’ supposedly ‘protecting’ the US.

    Americans don’t realize they have been controlled and imprisoned in their own belief system. Freedom to them is the freedom under a government that tells them they are to have heavy burdens of tax, shots, heatlth care, and what ever heavy burdens they can come up with. Supporting Israel is mind control.

    It’s funny that christians now have a new movie about the ‘pilgrims progress’ by John Bunyon. What they fail to realize is this man spent 12 years in prison for refusing to incorporate the church.

    They fail to realize that Patrick Henry’s slogon: “Give me Liberity or give or give me death!” was because Henry saw ministers whipped to death for not incorporating their church and they paid the price.

    They fail to realize that in the declaration of independence it was: “We the states………was changed to ‘we the people’……..taking away state rights and caused a civil war down the road as most knew it was just a matter of time.

    It’s just a matter of time now that we’re going to see the wheat from the tares in our local churches.

    First of all, I don’t trust BBC reporting. Secondly, I don’t care if they got killed. There is no draft in America and they made the choice to go. As far as I’m concerned, they’re no more than glorified hit men.

    Everything’s hunky-dory in Iraq and Afghanistan. What an incredible waste of time, money and lives.
    Amerika and Israel are cruisin’ for a bruisin’, and when it happens they’ll squeal like pigs. They don’t believe they’ll suffer any casualties; it’s been so long since ‘Nam, when someone actually shot back.

    Imagine the shock and whineing from Amerika when a carrier gets sunk, or a planes get shot down or a big chunk of forces are killed…..If Amerika or Israel takes a big punch in the nose, they’ll want to nuke somebody.

    Its all media, controlled releases to fetch favor out of junk. The invaders and occupants were always merciless. The frustrated arrogant are playing havoc in the mountains. Literal witness will never smile in life, I bet.

    SLSA, real unemployment in the US is about 47%, not the 8.9% they keep insisting it is, knowing it to a LIE.

    12.5 million visible
    86.0 million invisible
    ——
    98.5 million total unemployed

    207.9 million available number of workers

    98.5
    —– = 47.37% unemployed
    207.9

    Based on a total population of 330 million out of which 24% are too young and 13% are too old, totalling 122.1 million unavailable for the work force.

    The 86 million are those who have exhausted all possible benefits and are therefore `invisible`. The `visible` still have benefits and number 12.5 million.

    An odd feature of American data is that if a person has been looking for work in the previous month he is deemed as being in the workforce ! That is, no longer unemployed.

    Acknowledgement to M.Rivero of whatreallyhappened.com for the spade work.

    People rightly come to the conclusion that the USG wants very high unemployment to force people into the military and to keep them there for multiple deployments, while at the same time LYING five fold as to the actual percentage of unemployment.

    Explains the cleft stick that is multiple tours of Afghanistan; each deployment diminishes later prospects in the civilian sector, meaning they have even less choice about not going back to Afghanistan.

    I only care about the soldiers who care.

    Frmer general McCrystal says bring back the draft for americans.
    A little quote from the beloved zionist war criminal
    “I think if a nation goes to war, every town, every city needs to be at risk. You make that decision and everybody has skin in the game.”
    it looks like they want WW3
