US retaliates for green-on-blue attack

| January 13, 2018 | 18 Comments

AFP reports that an Afghanistan militia group attacked a patrol of US soldiers near Achin in Nangarhar province. US air forces retaliated against the group;

Khan said at least 13 fighters were killed in the airstrike, though other sources gave conflicting figures. An AFP reporter saw at least eight militia fighters buried on Friday morning.

NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan confirmed there had been an airstrike, but said it had targeted insurgents after they opened fire on an Afghan militia leader, a US soldier and an interpreter.

It said 10 insurgents were killed but denied reports from local sources saying that American soldiers were among the dead.

“An insurgent affiliated group posing as local militia… baited a local Afghan militia leader and a US service member with an Afghan interpreter into a compound under the pretense of a security…meeting,” said spokesman Captain Tom Gresback.

At the end of the meeting “multiple members of the insurgent group” started shooting, killing the militia leader and wounding the US soldier and interpreter.

In past years, the sergeant major of the Army would make a trip to Afghanistan and scold US soldiers for being culturally insensitive and causing the attacks. These airstrikes seem to be a better, more efficient way to express our anger towards cowards who commit sneak attacks on our troops.

    For what strategic national military or political reason are we still in Afghanistan?

    We have several more Man’s sitting on ice. Defrost them serve them hot, repeat until supplies on hand are used. Then down scale from there. We need to use Afghanistan like a spendex. As soon as a all ammo is spent on targets leave. While people talk triggers are being pulled. Am I the only one seeing Korea being played out here again?! As the saying goes that’ll BUFF,B52,right out.

    Imagine that.
    How blessed we are to have ‘allies’ who are
    back shooters (Afghans) and advance to the rear, like F troop but in reality (Iraqis)
    ALL thanks to W who was so stupid he said following 9/11 “They hijacked Islam”
    For all those who worship him, he is dumber than a box of rocks. The can of worms he opened will never be closed again. No western nation has ever won in that region but apparently, history was not his area of study or maybe it was just US he excelled in….

      So we were supposed to just do nothing after The 9/11 attack?

      No? you do not appear to read much history.

      The infant Western nation, USA, handily defeated the Barbary nations with a handful of ships and sheer balls.

      A valid quibble: north africa not mideast.

      Ok:

      Isreal is a western nation. Wins wins wins, and few losses.

      How about, oh say World War One? The defeat and destruction of the Ottoman freaking Empire?

    Afghanistan is a shithole.
    No more 7th century pervert praying, terrorist immigrants who will never assimilate.

    They should have killed the insurgents then leveled the compound and salted the earth under it. Obama ain’t in charge anymore.
