NATO soldier, five Afghans killed


au.news.yahoo.com

KABUL (AFP) - A NATO soldier was killed Saturday in Afghanistan , where police said a father and four of his adult sons died in a separate US-led raid.

The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) did not give the nationality of the soldier, who became the 55th foreign troop to die in Afghanistan this year.

It said the soldier was killed in an attack in the south but gave no more details.

Southern Afghanistan is perhaps the country's most dangerous area, blighted by regular attacks and where Taliban rebels are said to control several districts.

About 17,000 extra US troops are due to deploy to the area this year to reinforce ISAF in the region as part of a massive overhaul of US strategy hoping to turn around the seven-year war in the country

i can't imagine how more troops are going to reduce the mortality rate for soldiers in southern afganland.
i would be pullling all the troops out. let the taliban kill emslves off.
i still don't understand what they are all fighting for. its only going to result in more hate for the west and more dead for them.
