Roadside bombing kills U.S. security company employee in S Afghanistan

KABUL, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Roadside bombing targeting one U.S. private security company USPI on Sunday left one Afghan employee dead and another injured in Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan, said an Afghan official.

Zalmai Ayubi, spokesman for the provincial government, told Xinhua that the incident occurred at around 11 a.m. (0630 GMT) when a vehicle laden with explosive material was blown off by remote control in the Spinboldak highway near airport and NATO military base there.

Ayubi said the blast at least killed one Afghan staff and wounded the other while the USPI convoy was passing that area.

"One USPI vehicle was also damaged," he added. "Afghan police and NATO forces have rushed to the site and cordoned it off."

No group or individuals has yet to claim responsibility for the attack while Taliban militants often carried out such attacks against foreign companies, especially those providing service for international troops stationed in Afghanistan.

Spiraling conflicts and Taliban-linked insurgency have claimed around the lives of 5,000 people with some 2,000 civilians so far this year in strife-torn Afghanistan while Taliban insurgents have vowed to intensify assaults against interests of the Afghan government and international troops before the coming winter.

    • Yeah I suppose you would fill it with pro-insurgent filth. Stay in Switzerland and remain neutral like you always do, because your people dont have the balls or the inclination to make a stand on any issues.

  • i don't see why mercenaries are being paid three to five times as much to do the same jobs our military soldiers have traditionally done. is it easier to circumvent domestic and international laws that way?

    the other thing is: their corporations, like Blackwater, sometimes cause their own men to die by cost cutting things that they shouldn't be cost cutting. that infamous scene where 4 contractors were killed and hung on a bridge? read this in full as to why they died that day:

    • USPI is a Native American woman owned corporation. They provide security in many countries around the world. Their primary role in Afghanistan is to escort deliveries across the country, shipments such as food, medical supplies, infrastructure items, etc. These people are not mercinaries or soldiers, rather they provide security to make sure shipments are safely delivered.

    • i don't think that's the main reason they are paid so much more

      i think the main reason is because of a Republican/corporate connection between the two. Blackwater's head, Eric Prince, comes from a wealthy family connected with rich Republican elitists in Washington. It isn't a 'coincidence' any more than Halliburton's no-bid contracts and gross overcharges are.

      They're draining us as much as they possibly can.
