It was just another day in the place we call, Afghanistan. During the past few weeks there have been numerous attacks by Taliban units against foreigners who cling to the supposed safety if large cities such as Kabul. A well guarded restaurant was a blasted last week and five killed. Anija Niedringhaus, a German photographer and Kathy Gannon, a reporter hitched a ride with a convoy protected by the Åfghan army in hope of getting to a city without getting blown up. They were successful and the convoy entered the city compound. An Afghan security man walked over to their car, shouted, Allahu Akbar, “god is great,” and opened fire on the women. Anija died instantly and Kathy was wounded. The Afghan officer meekly surrendered, and most probably will never be executed.
President Hamid Karzai insists any and all problems in his nation are the cause of American and NATO forces whose drones and fighting lead to the death of the innocent. He wants them to leave. Oh, the Afghan government has deployed over 400,000 police, security forces and the army to protect the people of Afghanistan. I think that is the problem, not the solution!
