At least 45 US-led forces have been killed during an attack by Taliban militants on the US-run Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, the group claims.

A Press TV correspondent quoted a Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid as saying that 45 US-led soldiers including several army generals have been killed during the attack.

Mujahid added that the attack inflicted heavy losses to the airbase.

According to the Taliban spokesman, seven Taliban militants blew themselves up at the main gate of the base,

Difficult to believe this is totally true, but 7 suicide attackers blowing them selfs up same time when other Taliban forces made attack by weapons - I believe big mess have just storm Bagram.

It comes to my mind, that now when US has driven sanctions and showed their true warmongering faces all around the world by dismissing totally agreements made by Iran-Brazil-Turkey we propably see fast fast escalations in Afghanistan and Iraq where US Army can be attacked.

I see why Iran or its supporters have today many new reasons to order new attacks against US/EU/Israel interests in ME - because war seems to be in horizon. Today they can expect wide support from outside in their battle against invaders.

Afghanistan will be, and is one of the main launch pads for operations against Iran, so why dont move the battle to their soil and not wait anymore before battles moves to Irans soil?

Looks like very big attack occured but with much less casualties... But true sign of hardening resistance again.


This Time, the Taliban Attacks Bagram
By Spencer Ackerman 5/19/10 9:05 AM

Yesterday, the Taliban successfully killed at least 18 U.S. servicemembers and Afghan civilians a suicide car-bomb attack. Today, less successfully, Taliban forces attacked the nearby Bagram Air Field, an extremely secure and massive base. They didn’t make it beyond the outer perimeter — where, it’s worth noting, civilian trucks and taxis packed with Afghan civilians seeking to supply the base are often backed up the length of a football field — but an ISAF press release says “nearly a dozen” insurgents were killed, giving an indication of how big the attack was.

That attack used “rockets, small arms and grenades” and sought to use four operatives as suicide bombers. They were killed before they could detonate.

One U.S. contractor is dead. Nine U.S. servicemembers are wounded. Two of those nine are said to have returned to duty, and the rest ”are currently in stable condition,” according to an ISAF press release. But it’s been a long time since there was an attack this large on Bagram. Coming a day after the Kabul attack, the message the Taliban seek to deliver is that there aren’t any safe areas for the allies of the Afghan government.

This is nothing but "tet" style distraction. No real bearing on the war but good for propaganda.

isnt it sad that they are praising this,
just like the US praise the deaths of their enemes,
shows the human mindset when people love to praise the deaths of others.
