If America fought in World War II the way we’ve fought every war since, we’d all be speaking either German or Japanese. We defeated the two biggest military machines the world had ever known in 6 years. After ten years in Afghanistan fighting a bunch of 7th century barbarians, we have nothing to show for it. Liberalism and its abiding political correctness destroys everything it touches, including the great U.S. military.
(AP) The Blaze — A team of six suicide bombers – some wearing explosive vests – stormed a provincial governor’s compound in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, killing 22 people in the latest high-profile attack to target prominent Afghan government officials, authorities said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in the Parwan provincial capital of Charikar, some 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Kabul. The province is home to Bagram Air Field, a sprawling base for U.S. and NATO troops.
The coordinated assault is the most recent in a string of spectacular Taliban attacks within an hour’s drive of Kabul – a worrying sign of the insurgency‘s strength near the heart of the country and its determination to target Afghanistan’s nascent leadership. (more >>>)
