Kabul - A suicide car bomber killed at least nine people in an attack on a military airport in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, officials said, the latest incident of violence and protests since copies of the Koran were inadvertently burned at a NATO base last week.
There was no official indication the explosion at the gates of Jalalabad airport was linked to other deadly protests and riots, although the Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the attack as "revenge" for the Koran burning.
Anti-Western fury has deepened significantly since the desecration of the Muslim holy book at the main NATO base in Afghanistan.
Twelve people were wounded by the suicide bomb at the airport and casualties appeared to be civilians and Afghan soldiers who were guarding the gate...

Has Obama apologized yet?
They’re mad? I still haven’t forgotten 9/11.
I have decided to be PC though. Every time some dummycrat liberal/RINO tells me Islam is peaceful, I simply say, “I do not honor a religion that honors Honor Killing.” and leave it at that. I have yet to hear a response to that.
It’s time for AfCrapistan, to become a glowing parking lot. The sad thing is it was a pretty cool country in the early 80’s.
It's not what it sounds like from the title. This lady kicks 0bowMao's ass.
What? You sneezed and missed it?
That was just people and mostly infidels. This was The Koran!/s
I hope you will consider joining Operation #EFAD too.
4:00 AM MST Operation #EFAD bump
That needs to be its own thread...amazing. Needs to be seen by EVERY American.
I wish these stories would stop using the burned Korans as an excuse for car bombs.
That is just what it is , the newest excuse for doing what they wanted to do anyway.
They could care less about a few burned Korans. It’s just the latest stick to stir the nest.
OFF-TOPIC, though am interested since I don’t speak, understand or write Hebrew, and am not too familiar with the language.
Does Hebrew (language) have the following alphabets, pronunciation in particular, or equivalent? If yes, in parts or otherwise, what are they?:
Geh: as in “graft” or “gone” or “get”?
Peh: as in “picture” or “parent”?
Zeh: as pronounced in French for instance “Je” as in “Je suis”?
Cheh: as in “children”, “chap”?
Obama is not at war with the taliban, he’s at war with America. IMHO
In a way i agree w/ Elle Bee.
It depends on how one defines ‘winning a war’ in Afghanistan or Iraq.
You can’t win a war (easily) against an ideology (certainly not the Taliban which espouses an Islamic philosophy [ideology], as well as the tribal Islamics factions in Afghanistan, or any where in the moslem world).
That war is certainly not “winnable” by guns or military alone. You have to declare war against the ideology (philosophy) itself.
To think that we could win a war against an ideology by military alone and then nation-build was a mistake, which was made long before Obama.
And, I definitely don’t support Obama, male or female.
