Probably just the freedom fighters wanting their country back. I highly doubt much damage was caused as Afghanistan has no real military capability.

Are they trying to say these came from Iran?

Or is this just some more Taliban attacks?

Either way, that's what you get for meddling where you don't belong.

Taliban have claimed they fired the missiles. Who knows. They might say that Iran supplied the Taliban with the missiles. That might just justify a attack on Iran by the West.
This news has only just came out, so it could change.
So far we know that 9 missiles were fired. We dont know if they all hit there targets. Taliban are claiming many casaulties.

Yeah. Many Taliban were killed launching the re-rigged 60's Russian Katushya rockets.

Why no mentions from Breaking News.com or anything other than these 2 links? Sitting on the fence with my opinion until I get more information.

Just another reason to get our boys and girls out of that place.
Let their warlords fight each other, we don't need our troops in between two dogs.
Bring our kids home.

Interesting commentary in the Washington Times just before Christmas, titled The coming war with Iran

www.washingtontimes.com...


The guards also are targeting four U.S. air bases in Afghanistan as the main launching pads for any attacks on Iran. The Bagram Air Base, home to most of the U.S. Air Force presence in Afghanistan, is just 450 miles from the Iranian borders and within range of all of Iran’s ballistic missiles. Other air bases in Afghanistan that would be attacked by the guards in case of war are in Kandahar, Shindand and Herat.


Whether this is indeed the Iranians targeting the US base, or a set-up leading to a planned US attack of Iran, the puzzle pieces seem to be lining up.

This has happened fairly often before...

Sept 11 2011 - Militants attack US Bagram Airfield in Parwan province

May 4 2011 - Bagram airbase comes under rocket strike

Mar 15 2010 Rocket attack kills 1 at Afghan NATO base

Aug 31 2011 Taliban attack Bagram base near Kabul

There are news reports of more attacks against the base out there too.. Its something that happens from time to time at that base. So, unless there was something special about this attack I doubt it will cause any greater escalation than the other attacks have..

My brother who is working in that base just called me up and informed me it was 2 or 3 mortars. Not missiles and everyone is ok. He was also surprised I knew about it so fast. Got to love ATS!

Wow. Your brother works in Bagram. Thanks for the truth from your bro. Thats great news it was not missiles. No wonder most news sites are not saying anything. This just tells me again that Press tv news is mostly bull.

Press.tv can kiss my *** Unbelievable BS. I'll take my brothers word over that garbage. He says it happens almost daily and they use mortars with ice so they can run away. Ice melts lets the mortar drop and pray to allah it hits something other than dirt.

BTW.. Star and flag aarys.
