Afghan bomb attack kills 21 soldiers in 48 hours

21 American soldiers killed in past 48 hours in Afghanistan


 

A series of bomb attacks in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, have killed 21 American soldiers in 48 hours. The attacks, which began Friday, leave the death-toll of the NATO coalition at 484. This year, the total number of deaths is expected to surpass last year’s total of 521. The coalition says the increasing numbers are because of an influx of insurgent reinforcements. Lately, the Taliban is using homemade bombs made from old shells and homemade explosives concealed in roads, tracks, walls, streams and buildings.

  1. This is what happens when they're not allowed to fight/engage like they are in a war.
    Bring 'em all home or fight to win.
    Dragging this on for decades and not getting anywhere there with the UN mandate thus far.

  2. Political correctness and apologetical behavior of western world caused those loses.
    Our army should fight as in regular war, only then we can achieve success.

    Why they don't just drop napalm and fosphor on talibs positions. Couple days of heavy bombing and
    our troops will have easier job to do.
