AT LEAST 61 KILLED AFTER SUICIDE BOMBING ATTACK IN KABUL CLAIMED BY ISIS

At least 61 people were killed and 207 injured when a huge blast rocked a mass demonstration by members of the mainly Shia Hazara minority in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Saturday. The attack was claimed by terrorist group Islamic State: "Two fighters from Islamic State detonated explosive belts at a gathering of Shiites in the city of Kabul in Afghanistan," said a brief statement on the group's Amaq news agency.

A freelance journalist working for BBC Afghan said blood and body parts were everywhere, with debris strewn around.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are multiple, powerful reasons why Afghanistan has earned the title "the graveyard of empires."

The only guy who was able to hold on to it was Alexander the Great, and even through a series of elaborate alliances and marriages, that was only for 3 years.

Almost 15 years in to this US/NATO occupation, there is absolutely no military metric by which one could possibly judge this occupation as having created a "military victory."

The Afghani people are no more "pacified" than they were the day they got invaded; there is no true democracy, and neither the US nor NATO can protect the people from either the Taliban or ISIS.

The only non-brain-dead option the US government and NATO have right now, would to be to evacuate their soldiers and hired mercs as safely as is possible, and leave the country.

Then, negotiate with whatever government is left standing for the pipeline and mineral rights.

Of course, that...would be logical.
