Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Before dawn on Friday, a man wearing an Afghan uniform shot and killed three U.S. soldiers during a meeting to discuss local security issues in the southern province of Helmand.



It was one of an unprecedented series of five attacks by people in Afghan security forces uniforms in the past week against NATO forces.



If the trend over the past few months continues, NATO troops in Afghanistan face a rapidly growing threat. It is compounded by the strategy of withdrawing all combat troops by the end of 2014, which will increasingly leave relatively isolated international military advisors embedded with Afghan soldie

  • What does it tell you when you bring representative democracy to a country and they elect people that wish to kill you. Our form of government is not compatible with their culture. Their primitive nature allows them only to respond to brute strength. We need to withdraw the body of our troops and conduct covert ops, the JDAM's and drone strikes should work nicely. Good old fashion spook shit. Encourage them to fight each other, it's not hard to do. They've been doing for as long as anyone can re More..

  • Just to mention. Talebans just killed some more civilians in Zaranj. Apparently this attack didn't go all that well as only 3 bombers managed to detonate their bombs. Depencing of the source 3-8 others were killed by security forces.
