Latest in string of attacks from inside the Afghan army and police

They are so easily willing to kill even their own.
Who else?

What the hell are we still doing there?  And since the enemy already knows we’ll be packing our bags soon, why should they negotiate anything? Would you?

As Drew and others have already said, that place should be turned into a nuclear parking lot one end to the other.  Wasted lives on our side in a pointless (the way it’s been fought) war that has so far solved nothing at all.

Btw ... an aside.

A court here (UK) has ruled that relatives can sue the government for the loss of their kin in the war, because say the claimants, the DOD didn’t provide proper armored vehicles that would have saved life and limb for the guys fighting that war.

Take a look at the latest.


Afghan police officer and cook poisoned colleagues at checkpoint in assault which left six dead

At least 52 foreign troops have been killed in insider attacks this year
Attack by Taliban in Helmand killed two district community council members
Taliban fired rocked-propelled grenades at warehouse full of food for US

An Afghan police officer and cook poisoned their colleagues at a checkpoint in an assault co-ordinated with rebel fighters which left six dead in the country’s south, officials said today.

They poisoned two of the officers and then the militants attacked from outside, killing the remaining four officers, provincial spokesman Ahmad Zirak said.

He did not say how the officers were poisoned.

The police officer was captured as he fled, but the cook escaped and remains at large, Mr Zirak added.

It is the latest in a string of attacks from inside the Afghan army and police.

The attacks are threatening to undermine both the partnership with international troops - which have been the target of many attacks - and the morale of Afghan forces, who have suffered equally heavy casualties from such strikes.

The police officer and the cook worked with outside insurgents in the assault, which hit police manning a checkpoint in the Gereskh district of Helmand province, the governor’s office said in a statement.

The insurgent gunmen escaped by motorcycle with weapons and ammunition, the governor’s statement said.

A recent upsurge in the number of insider attacks on coalition troops by Afghan soldiers or police - or insurgents disguised in their uniforms - has further undermined public support for the war in the West.

So far this year, at least 52 foreign troops - about half of them Americans - have been killed in insider attacks.

The Afghan government has not provided statistics on the number of its forces killed in insider attacks.

However, US military statistics obtained by The Associated Press show at least 53 members of the Afghan security forces had been killed by the end of August.

Meanwhile, a Taliban attack elsewhere in Helmand killed two district community council members, while Taliban-fired rocket-propelled grenades destroyed a warehouse full of food destined for the main US base in Afghanistan.

The United Nations has recorded a sharp increase in such killings in the first six months of 2012 compared with the same period of 2011.

In the warehouse attack, insurgents fired rocket-propelled grenades at a compound used by military contractor Supreme Group to store food and other supplies destined for Bagram Air Field, the main US base in the country.

A warehouse inside the compound caught fire in the assault and burned through the night.

Victoria Frost, a spokeswoman for Supreme Group in Dubai, wrote in an email: ‘The local fire brigade attended the scene and brought the fire under control, but the warehouse itself and all contents were destroyed.’

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
