I Do Understand

An Afghan dressed in a police uniform shot and murdered two American soldiers. As of this point it is unclear if the attacker was a member of the Taliban dressed in a police uniform or whether it was a policeman who was a secret member of the Taliban. In either case, two more Americans are dead. The day before two British soldiers were killed by an Afghan policeman. Since January of this year about 53 foreigners have died at the hand of their allies rather than at the hands of their enemies.

These murders make clear that for many Afghans, outside American and NATO soldiers are THE enemy. It is understandable how so many in Afghanistan have this feeling, considering that their government is corrupt, ignores needs of  citizens and goes along robbing the nation blind. So, why should anyone fail to recognize Afghanistan is a failed nation led by failed leaders and the tragedy is the Taliban is simply another group of incompetent rulers.
