    Afghan forces have contrasted insurgents who have attacked US embassy and demostrate their capacity to reach and penalize any components of the attack’s group.
    Alls have been killed and now the Afghan forces have rose their credibility and resilience on the thougts of people. This is important.

    Seven people killed. While that is very regrettable, this is an EPIC FAIL for the Taliban!
    I don’t know how many Afghan civilians read this blog, but if there *are* any, I hope they can pass on the message that almost everything the Taliban say is *lies*. They say that the ANA are “not real Muslims”. Lies. They say that “the ISAF troops have special glasses thnat can see through clothing”. Lies. They *constantly* inflate casualty figures and claim to shoot down dozens of aircraft. With the regrettable exception of that SF helicopter, again that is lies.
    I only wish that I were young enough to serve in the forces myself, but given that that is not the case, I am doing what I can to undermine the Taliban by “other means” …..>:D
