119 Killed, Mostly Afghan Troops, in Deadly Weekend Attacks

A Taliban attack in the Faryab Province has targeted a key police headquarters this weekend. The HQ remains under siege, with at least 14 fighters killed, and 37 other members of the security forces having been captured. Other officials say the death toll could be over 30 as fighting continues.

It was a big attack, and getting worse. That’s been the news all weekend, as officials reported attacks in about 10 provinces per day. All told, 119 people have been reported killed, and 102 of them are members of Afghan security forces.

Beyond the large death toll, 196 security forces were reported wounded over the 48 hour period. The Defense Ministry also claimed 183 Taliban killed on Friday, and another 181 killed on Saturday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of perfectly valid reasons why Afghanistan has the dubious distinction of being called "the graveyard of empires".

And I would like to politely remind our "alleged leadership" in Foggy Bottom, that those who cannot learn from history.... are doomed to repeat it.
