Barack Obama and General John Allen should be prosecuted for the deaths of every one of the over fifty troops murdered by their Afghan "allies" this year. They are all victims of the politically correct unwillingness to accept unpleasant realities about Islam: that it teaches hatred of and warfare against unbelievers, the virtue of deceit in war, and the impermissibility of cooperating with or allying with infidels on a permanent and lasting basis.
How many Americans have to die in jihad attacks before this lethal fantasy policy is abandoned?
"Taliban leader says insider attacks will increase," from the Associated Press, October 24 (thanks to Kenneth):
The Taliban fired on America's top military General Martin Dempsey's plane at Bagram Airbase. And that was just days after US troops were killed by an Afghan police attack, and not a week after three US soldiers were murdered during the Ramadan meal (the meal that one of the victims, Captain Menoukian, insisted that his Marines observe). Despite the respect, subservience and dhimmitude displayed by the US military, they were murdered anyway. Full-on jihad.
KABUL, Afghanistan Taliban insurgents will increase the number of insider attacks against coalition and Afghan forces, which have resulted in the deaths of at least 52 foreign troops so far this year, the movement's reclusive leader said Wednesday.
In an emailed statement congratulating Muslims as they prepare to celebrate the Eid al-Adha holiday, Mullah Mohammad Omar urged "every brave Afghan in the ranks of the foreign forces and their Afghan hirelings ... to strike them."
"Jihadist activities inside the circle of the state militias are the most effective stratagem. Its dimension will see further expansion, organization and efficiency," he said. "Increase your efforts to expand the area of infiltration in the ranks of the enemy."
For months now, our troops have been slaughtered in green-on-blue attacks in Obama's continuing #epicfailed Afghanistan policy. These acts of jihad were "virtually unheard of just a few years ago," when America was the "strong horse." But Obama's anti-freedom, pro-jihad foreign policy has given the global jihad a new lease on death and all but erased whatever gains were made under Bush. Obama has resurrected the Taliban. And he continues to stalk them for "peace" as they ratchet up their jihadi war on the US and NATO. Obama, stop begging and start fighting.
Such an anti-freedom, pro-jihad foreign policy is madness. These open attacks on coalition forces and less devout Muslims are coming daily now. The supreme leader of the Taliban boasted that the insurgents are infiltrating the quickly expanding Afghan forces.
"Police officers kill 4 American, British soldiers in Afghanistan" WireUpdate, October 23
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN (BNO NEWS) -- Suspected Afghan police officers opened fire at foreign troops in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday and Thursday, killing two British and two American service members in two separate incidents, officials said on Thursday. They are the latest in a series of so-called green-on-blue attacks.
The first incident happened on Wednesday during a British foot patrol in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand Province, which is located in southern Afghanistan, when an exchange of gunfire erupted which resulted in the deaths of a British Royal Marine from 40 Commando Royal Marines, a British female soldier from 3 Medical Regiment and an Afghan man.
"[The] Afghan man is believed to be a member of the Afghan Uniformed Police but who was not wearing uniform at the time," a spokesperson for Britain's Ministry of Defense said on Thursday. "The UK patrol were not working with any Afghan partners at the time. At this stage we do not know what initiated the exchange of gunfire and an investigation is ongoing."
Major Laurence Roche, a spokesman for Task Force Helmand, said next-of-kin have been informed about the incident. "This is dreadful news for all of us serving in Afghanistan," he said. "Our sincere condolences go to their families, friends and colleagues at this time of grief."
Hours later, on early Thursday, two American service members were killed in the Khas Urozgan District of Uruzgan province, also located in Afghanistan's volatile south, when they were fired upon by an individual wearing an Afghan National Police (ANP) uniform. "The incident is currently under investigation," U.S. Forces-Afghanistan (USFOR-A) said in a statement, giving no other details.
If both are confirmed as insider attacks, the shootings would add to an increasingly frequent series of attacks by Afghan security forces against foreign troops. At least 45 foreign and Afghan security forces have been killed by members of the Afghan security forces in 34 incidents this year alone. Such incidents were virtually unheard of just a few years ago.
There are currently more than 112,500 ISAF troops in Afghanistan, including some 74,400 U.S. troops and 9,500 British soldiers. U.S. President Barack Obama previously ordered a drawdown of 23,000 U.S. troops by the end of this summer, and 15,000 of them have already left in recent weeks. Foreign combat troops are due to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
