Afghan gunmen kill 2 U.S. troops - Direct hit this time
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

KABUL, Afghanistan - Two U.S. troops were shot dead in southern
Afghanistan when three assailants, two of whom were believed to be
Afghan soldiers, turned their weapons against American troops on
Thursday. Afghan and U.S. military officials confirm to CBS
News that the dead were U.S. troops, and that a third American service
member was wounded in the attack. U.S. forces responded with gunfire and
killed the two assailants in Afghan army attire, wounding a third
Afghan shooter in civilian clothing. CBS News correspondent Mandy Clark reports the shooting occurred inside a joint Afghan-U.S. base in Kandahar province. Thursday's
shooting is the latest case of Afghan policemen or soldiers — or
militants disguised in their uniforms — killing NATO troops.
Six
Americans have now been killed and at least 15 wounded in attacks in
Afghanistan since the Islamic holy books were burned at a U.S. base
there. Dozens of Afghans have been killed or wounded in riots. Two
U.S. military advisers were shot and killed Feb. 25 inside their office
at the Afghan Interior Ministry. Days before that, an Afghan solider
shot and killed two other U.S. troops during a protest over the burning
of Korans at a U.S. base. The U.S. says the Korans were
burned with trash by mistake, and multiple American officials -
including President Obama - have issued apologies. On
Wednesday, "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley spoke to U.S.
Ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, and Marine Gen. John Allen, the
commander-in-charge of the war. "Clearly it's been a bad week,"
"but I'm quite confident we'll get through this. The pace of protest
has slowed dramatically. A decade's worth of relationships doesn't go
away in a single week, so we'll move forward." Clark reports
that, while the angry protests which drew thousands of Afghans into the
streets in the days after the Koran burning was made public have died
down, targeted attacks against U.S. forces by their supposed Afghan
military partners seem to be on the rise. While Crocker and Gen.
Allen insist the U.S. mission continues unabated, Clark notes the
prospect of increasing hostility from their partners in Afghanistan
poses a serious challenge to U.S. troops - whose entire mission is
pinned on the idea of living with and fighting with, not against, the
Afghan security forces they're training.

  • Wow six american soldiers killed by afghans. 40 Afghan civilians killed by Afghans. Wow how you people cherish a book over a human life. You can print a million Qurans in one day but you cant take back the life of a person. God message has truly fallen on deaf ears. You are such a great representation of your religion(Sarcasm). Churches and bibles are burned and desecrated by Muslims all the time but you dont see Christians burning and killing people. We just print more. We know the value of Hum More..

      Exactly, leave them all to kill themselves off. Too bad it took over 10 years, 1/2 trillion dollars, and the lives of almost 2000 US troops for dumbfucks like you to get it through your thick heads.

  • So when can we expect an apology for these killings from the Afghan government? LOL

    Seriously this is why I hate Islam so fucking much. Is there anything in the quran that teaches Muslims that you can solve problems with words and discussion rather than endless violence? Its like Muslim minds in the Mideast and Africa are all stuck in the stone age and they don't want to ever change and come into the 21st century. No matter how much support you give them, they will NEVER truly be your friends a More..

    • @John_Matrix Excellent! The douche bag keyboard jihadi's are praising the death of people training their government to establish rule and order. If burning women with acid, molesting boys and cutting off heads is how they want to rule and be ruled then so be it. Any further interaction with that culture should be avoided unless it's by aerial bombardment.

    • @John_Matrix Its same on your side John, Pakistan did everything to support USA in the region but did get nothing during the Soviet Era, Instead our Nuclear plants were banned by USA and sanctions were put on us after Soviet defeat while Israel has the right to do anything it wants , it has loads of Nuclear Ammo. USA Vetoes everything that is being presented in United Nations justly or unjustly. Obviously now the Muslim world hates USA for all these reasons.

  • Mohammad was a 50-yr-old mass-murdering narcissist who fucked a nine-year-old girl, giving birth to devious behavior of forced child marriage that continues to this day.

    He married more women than Allah originally approved of. Of course, in Mohammad's lust, he said he received a revelation from Allah that it was okay. And the blind followers, not thinking for themselves, rolled over and submitted to the "devine" prophet's wishes. Absolutely sick.
