Afghan casualties in Taliban Mazar-e Sharif attack pass 100

More than 100 Afghan soldiers were killed or wounded in a Taliban attack on an army base on Friday, the defence ministry has confirmed.

Fighting lasted for several hours near the city of Mazar-e Sharif in northern Balkh province.

Insurgents targeted those leaving Friday prayers at the base’s mosque and others in a canteen, the army said.

I’m not sure why I posted this. I really don’t care much at all.

    “I’m not sure why I posted this. I really don’t care much at all.” It’s good to be reminded that Islam is busy doing what it does best – murder – in pretty well every dark corner of the planet.

    Because it’s the Religion of Peace, right? Isn’t, never was, never will be.

    If there was any part of the Islamic world, past and present, that wasn’t a blood soaked mess, perhaps it could be taken seriously. However it’s religion, it’s history and present-day condition are all of a piece. QED.

      Islam was a much more peaceful religion before the birth of the muslim prophet Muhammed, around A.D. 670. Principally because islam didn’t exist at that time, contrary to muslim assertions.

    It’s like part of the scenery. If liberals treated this the same they treated Africa no one would know the first thing about Islam or their insane squabbling.

  • Watchman

    Sounds like islamophobia to me – on all sides. Let us leave them to resolving it themselves lest we be accused of more islamophobia ourselves as we would be regardless of which side we support.

    were they fighting over the right to bugger a dancing boy? why are we supporting this grotesque regime and/ or its rebels , both sides are disgusting.

    Neither do I, however it is heartening to see and hear of that bunch of losers murder one another. Less available to attack us.
