    Angry Three U.S. soldiers killed by Afghan police in Helmand (Aug.10.2012.)

    (http://sgt-jim.blogspot.com/2012/08/...by-afghan.html)

    (Reuters) -
    An Afghan police commander and several of his men killed three U.S. soldiers in the southern province of Helmand, turning guns on them after inviting them to a dinner to discuss security, Afghan officials said on Friday.



    The men were all American special forces members and were killed on Thursday night while attending a meeting in the Sarwan Qala area, in what appeared to be a planned attack by rogue Afghan forces.


    "During dinner, the police commander and his colleagues shot them and then fled. The commander was Afghan National Police in charge of local police in Sangin," a senior Afghan official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. Sangin is a district.


    "It looks like he had drawn up a plan to kill them previously," the official said.


    A spokeswoman for NATO-led forces in the country confirmed the incident but said it was too early to say whether it was a rogue shooting or due to insurgent infiltration.


    "All we know is that they were killed by an Afghan in a uniform of some sort," the spokeswoman said.


    So-called green on blue shootings, in which Afghan police or soldiers turn their guns on their Western colleagues, have seriously eroded trust between the allies as NATO combat soldiers prepare to hand over to Afghan forces by 2014, after which most foreign forces will leave the country.


    According to NATO, there have been 24 such attacks on foreign troops since January in which 28 people have been killed, not including Thursday's attack. Last year, there were 21 attacks in which 35 people were killed.


    Another foreign soldier was killed in the south on Friday during an insurgent attack, NATO said, while seven civilians were killed and three were wounded by an insurgent roadside bomb, also in Helmand.


    In a grim 24 hours for the NATO-led force, three U.S. soldiers and an American aid worker were killed earlier on Thursday in the eastern province of Kunar in an attack by a suicide bomber.

    I've been saying that even since we smoked Bin Laden. It's a useless, ungrateful and hopeless "society" over there. They're not worth the money and they're definately not worth American lives.

    Again, if we see a target we want, send in a drone and destroy it.

    You can't win in Afghanistan. Not because there are so great, but because there is nothing to win.

    All we had to do is send SF and CIA into Afghanistan, why send an Army of soldiers to shoot at. SF and CIA pay people to feed information, and they are also very good trackers. They know their jobs well, and this was a very hard operation to take on. Killing off the Taliban is something not even Russia nor the USA can do. It is a growing population by hour, they recruit people so often it makes this seem completely pointless. If we never sent troops there, they wouldn't have such a strong fighting force. It would've been easier to find Bin Laden. Take off the balls of a lion and it becomes a pussycat. Shooting at foot soldiers is a small paper cut, it never dies.

    Afghanistan is never going to be peaceful, I think we've all established terrorism in the middle east spreads like disease.
