Taliban suicide attack on Nato base wounds 50 US soldiers
Dawn ^ | September 10th 2011 | Staff/AFP

Posted on 09/10/2011 11:28:53 PM PDT by Cardhu

A suicide attack at a Nato base in central Afghanistan injured 89 people, including 50 American soldiers.

JALALABAD: A suicide bomber driving a truck attacked an advance Nato combat post in central Afghanistan, wounding 89 people including 50 American soldiers, the United States Army said Sunday.

The Taliban claimed responsibility on their Internet site for Saturday’s attack, news of which came as the world marked the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that killed almost 3,000 people in the United States.

US Army spokesman Major David Eastburn said: “It happened at 5:15 pm on Saturday.

“It detonated near the entry oint at a combat outpost, resulting in 89 wounded in action and a 20-foot hole in the wall.”

I am afraid political correctness is endangering our soldiers as it did at Fort HOod. The military brass wants to pretend jihadists are nice little pets as long as you bow to them enough.

Or, maybe a soldier farted in front of a jihadists and he got mad. (I take it you read the article about the brass banning farting because it was upsetting the Islamists in Afghanistan...).

As to the Stan. It seems that we are not going to get an "Anbahr Awekening" moment we had in Iraq. So the only option left is "More rubble, less trouble."

Our troops should be out of there. As far as I am concerned we have accomplished all we are going to there (kill Bin Laden) and if the Afghans don’t want to bother working with us, let them rot too. We need to use a few tactical nukes as well, fifty, or better, eighty, to make of for those lost among Seal Team Six, in addition to the fifty wounded now.

I’m pretty sure you know this and are simply venting your frustration, but the U.S. Military does not use tactical nukes unless it were in the most extraordinary circumstances.

Where would the battlefield be...you use tactical nukes on a battlefield...? You don’t use them to indiscrimanently kill anybody and everybody who happen to be in an area, friend, foe, neutral, women, babies, etc. because you’re angry about a ‘copter shootdown and a suicide bombing.

I hope you understand that even without Obama at the helm and even without political correctness in the top brass, the U.S. Military’s own doctrines would not allow for what you want.

The question is, what do we do about Afghanistan? Hussein Obama says we’re pulling out no matter what, and it is obvious the Taliban gain traction with the people there just by that Obama declaration. The Taliban are brutal to anyone who dares side with “the enemy”, and when “the enemy” announces in advance, hey, we’re leaving no matter what, the Taliban have the people there in a vice grip, through fear and violent intimidation.

In addition to that, Afghanistan as a culture is hopeless. They will always be what they’ve always been. No amount of bloodshed or money spent will change that.

Tactical nukes would not stop the Taliban, but it would inflame the world. Oh and by the way, it is under the NATO umbrella that we are in Afghanistan. Can you imagine European + Turkish NATO sanctioning tactical nukes in Afghanistan when even the U.S. Military’s own doctrines would preclude their use there??

As stated, I suppose you are simply venting your feelings.

The focus in today’s news seems to be about the tragedy of people who “lost their lives” when the towers fell, instead of people who were killed by attacks conducted by radical muslim jihadists.

Today I will scan for the word Muslim or Islamic. I wonder how many times it will be properly identified.

Our news has been sanitized in ways that would have George Orwell screaming from his grave.

"You don’t use them to indiscrimanently kill anybody and everybody who happen to be in an area, friend, foe, neutral, women, babies, etc. because you’re angry about a ‘copter shootdown and a suicide bombing."

During WWII we dropped two nukes on industrial cities populated with civilains. The conventional fire bombings of Tokyo and the German city of Dresden killed more people than both bukes did. I am of the same opinion as General Douglas MacArthur, in that if you make the decision to go to war, you should use every and all weapons (total war)at your disposal in order to shorten the war, thereby saving lives and property. He also aexpress the belief that anything short of total war is immoral.

It is too bad that America heroes are targeted
by the Imam Obama to die by his agents in 57 States.

If the US Congress does not impeach Obama and let
the US Patriots fight back (as they should), then
they US Congress, itself, is responsible
(as it is already responsible)
for EVERY SINGLE DEATH. American traitors all.

Well, nuclear bombs or not, what are we supposed to do?

Ten YEARS of blood and treasure ...everyone remembers 9/11 in terms of the 3,000 who were killed that day ...let’s not also forget the 4,000+ who have been killed in the name of this plague since then, and the numbers continue to rise.

What do we do? It just goes on and on. How are we going to end this scourge on humanity?

>> How are we going to end this scourge on humanity?

1) Open up all the oil reserves in the USA. Render their oil irrelevant. Starve the beast.

2) Let them kill each other.

3) If they attack again: FAEs. Lots of FAEs. Not a single boot on the ground. No expensive surgical weapons like cruise missiles or JDAMs.

4) For the lone wolf types: military tribunals and hangings because that’s how you deal with spies, assassins, and saboteurs in war.

5) For those “good” muslims in western countries who claim they just want live their lives peacefully: tell them that it is THEIR job to convince us that they are trustworthy and able to fit into decent society. No more free passes. No more kowtowing to their sensitivities. No more covering crosses and hiding Christianity from them so as to not offend them.

We would, however the scum in Afghanistam, Pakistan, Iraq etc wouldn't consider it. They'd take out 100 of their own to kill one American. We've become far to politically correct. I agree with your philosophy somewhat but I'd go much bigger. We should have annihilated Afghanistan from the start and made most of it uninhabitable with a stern warning to anyone else who tries something similar.

Having difficulty posting to this thread (it is not your fault, nor anyone elses' here), while asking God to grant vengeance, though knowing God said, Vengeance is Mine.

Sometimes I too want vengeance. Forgive me God, for I want those who harm our Daughters and Sons to be annihilated, and yes, Lord, I would think not of what innocents would be in the way. Asking for forgiveness, Lord. All the while, wanting vengeance.

Ditto. There is no way to “play WAR”. To win any war you must destroy the enemy’s will to fight. This can be done by destroying the enemy, their ability to wage war, or the cause for which they fight. This is why the firebombing in WWII, we were not able to destroy the enemy armies at the time so the allies destroyed their homeland (this would be mecca and medina). This is why we went after the factories and resources that fed the war machine of the enemies (today this would be mosques and oil money). This is also why we should drill baby drill and end their money and our dependence on enemy energy.

This is also, right or wrong, why the internment camps. So we would not have the enemy in our midst. If we can prevent Boeing from moving to South Carolina, we can bring American Tech home from overseas.

Total war means using the weopons at your disposal to achieve victory (provided you want victory, and not just cover for undermining America).

Let’s be grateful that no Americans were killed.

When we leave Afghanistan, we should be sure they understand that if another attack on us like 911 is launched from there, we will use nuclear weapons, despite the lack of worthy targets.

Yes. The Left is turning this into Viet Nam all over again. They love the ideology and oppression of our emenies and hate our constitution, our country and our soldiers. American life is cheap to them.

Not to me. One precious American soldier sacrificed at the altar of Marxism’s betrayal and insanity is too much or me. When the Army allowed the openly jihadist Hansan to murder those Fort Hood soldiers, I knew it was time to pull our soldiers out of harm’s way in the Middle East. Our elite can not be trusted with their lives just like they can no longer be trusted with our freedom.

Perhaps you are looking at the picture upside down.

It is the liberal moonbat elite who must go, be gone, removed from any say. So long as they continue to exist as enemies worse than those radical Islamist, America is in peril. We must strive to destroy than and what they stand for.

Your advocacy of giving up is surrender

Exactly! This highest elite can not be trusted!

If these very highest officers can NOT see that there is a problem with Obama’s natural born citizenship then they are either stupid or evil. ( We know they are not stupid.)

A few questions:

When did overlooking usurpation of the office of Commander in Chief, identity theft, multiple social security numbers, FORGERIES of birth documents, and criminal election fraud become part of the military code of honor?

Is this how they uphold their oath to defend the Constitution?

Is having a fraud in the Red House ( oops! White House) with access to all of our most sensitive secretes how these perfumed pussy cats look out for the brave and honorable men and women serving under them?

Is overlooking crimes in the chain of command part of the military code of honor now taught in our military academies?

Where is the evidence that these highest ranking weenies sought peaceful and lawful clarification of Obama’s questionable natural born citizenship and other likely activities with congress and the courts?

Well....We know the answers to these questions. Unfortunately, the highest military has made certain that any lower level officer that asks these questions is crushed like a bug.

Speaking of lack of honor, wintertime, a subject you are quite familiar with.

I see that even on the ten year anniversary of 9/11, you continue to shamelessly and brazenly spit your cowardly venom upon the honor of the U.S. military.

In a better era, you would be shunned. The military leadership is a lot of things. Too political. Too PC. Too bureaucratic. But evil? You think the officers of the U.S. military are evil?

You have been told many times that it's not the military's job to check the President's paperwork. The military serves the civilian government, the courts, and the people. You are either a knave or a fool to suggest they overturn the will of the people. At this point, I suspect both.

On behalf of the men and women of the U.S. military, let me extend a warm 9/11 greeting to you and yours.

"Suck it, scumbag."

I just found more details -- looks like our guys are mostly okay:

"Most of the force of the explosion was absorbed by the protective barrier at the outpost entrance," NATO said, adding that the damage was repairable and that operations were continuing.

Fewer than 25 Afghan civilians were also wounded, NATO said, adding that none of the 77 injuries sustained by the Americans were life-threatening.

It’s exactly that attitude that cost us 4000 more lives than the 3000 we lost on 9/11 ten years ago today.

“Total war” was the answer then. It is the answer now. Pussy-footing around worrying about enflaming the world isn’t total war. The “rest of the world” expects America to come-a-runnin’ when its @ss is in a sling. So the “rest of the world” can sit back, shut up, and hold on while we administer the justice for which we stand.

I can not defend a strawman of **your** creation. I have repeatedly stated that our men and women are brave, highly train, and people of high honor.

Our brave and honorable troops deserve to be serving under a legitimate Commander in Chief.

The **very** highest officers ( a **tiny** number) should be watching their backs. Do we really want a usurper in the White House with access to all of the most sensitive secrets, and the power to dictate insane ROEs?
