Blast Injures U.S. Soldiers as Riots Rage in Afghanistan

It appears there is no safe place for U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. NYT reports:

A grenade thrown by Afghan protesters wounded at least six American service members in northern Afghanistan on Sunday, officials said...

The injuries to American service members on Sunday were inflicted after protesters threw a grenade at a camp in the northern city of Kunduz, where the American military has a mentoring program with the Afghan national police., said Mohammed Ayob Haqyar, the district chief of Imam Sahib District where the base is located.


  1. This is why we need more troops. It will solve everything.

  2. More young American lives wasted. Chewed up and spit out by the Imperial meat grinder. The real problem with all this war monger madness is the American Sheeple. They support or tolerate it like feckless simpletons. The problem with America is it's full of gullible, ignorant, irrational people. Mencken was right, no one ever lost money underestimating the intelligence (or bloodthirstyness) of the American people.

  3. "...polls indicate the public largely does not care, though some support the nuclear option, and others believe more troops might subdue the native population."
