And today:


Two more United States service members have died in southern Afghanistan, where militants have stepped up their attacks in response to greater security by NATO and Afghan forces in Taliban strongholds. NATO said Friday that the two died in an insurgent attack but did not provide details. The deaths brought to 33 the number of United States troops killed so far this month in Afghanistan.


The resistance's legitimacy is increasing, and people see them as legitimate resistance as the occupiers allow corruption to sore, and allow drugs to flourish while the capital is becoming the home of the addicts.

This is insane, did the Russians destroy Afghanistan for the same reason?

Both these kid empires, Russia and the US is messing up the world, the don't know what they are doing, Russia at least learned its lesson, but continues its teenage, mixed emotion attitude, at least Russia is almost adult.

Zz grow up US..

And for those who believe this is a new discovery,




In an interview with Politico, a retired senior U.S. official notes that anyone with a memory span longer than a goldfish will realise the supposedly “new discovery” is anything but that:

“When I was living in Kabul in the early 1970’s the [U.S. government], the Russians, the World Bank, the UN and others were all highly focused on the wide range of Afghan mineral deposits. Cheap ways of moving the ore to ocean ports has always been the limiting factor,” the official said.

Furthermore, in the mid 1980s, the chief engineer of the Afghan Geological Survey Department published a report pointing to vast reserves of mineral riches. The Afghan government was readying to work with the Soviets on extraction, before Russia pulled out of the country altogether as it’s empire began to crumble in 1989.


America knew all along, this is not a new discover, and no 9/11 hijacker was Afghani.
