Afghan Police Commander Kills Three US Special Ops

Gunmen in Afghan uniforms shot and killed three US special operations forces in southern Afghanistan, marking the 28th killed by so-called green-on-blue attacks this year.

The US troops were lured to their deaths by an Afghan police commander who invited them to dinner Thursday night. The Taliban claimed responsibility and said the gunman had defected to the insurgency.

The failure of the US mission in Afghanistan – to build up and train a centralized state and security apparatus – is illustrated clearly in the constant killing of US soldiers by their Afghan counterparts. Much of the security force has been infiltrated by the Taliban or Pakistani agents.

28th US, but ???? Total

In 2012, That is the 28th Green-on-Blue (Nice use of Halo terminology), but the other foreign nation troops have many as well. The total number is pretty high this year, and it seems most nations are ready to just leave.

Its not worth one life, let alone the tens of thousands already lost.

I feel so

free now.

and safer too!

This is just a blip on the screen...

It TRULY tears me up inside to say this but..it needs to be 100 vets get killed in one day by the very same men we trained and treated like a friend to wake the masses up. Whats another 3 vets getting murdered?? The Sheep will no longer be talking about this by tomorrow..but if a 100 get murdered at the same time that will make them sit up and take notice..who knows, it might just make a few more sheep wake up and start to sound like the rest of us "kooks" who want to put an end to ALL THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL WARS and bring our troops HOME!!!!!!! We are paying for these sins we committ..anyone who says anything different is the KOOK.

I pray that all the war mongers go streight to hell..they deserve it.

Get the Hell out of Afghanistan

Three more very good reasons why we should get the Hell out of Afghanistan. One was too many, and now it is an even 3000 dead who have been sacrificed on the altar of the profiteers of the Establishment's military-industrial-Wall Street-banking-MSM complex. Where are the mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers of the dead and wounded? Why isn't just one of them screaming in anger about this terrible waste?

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

How many afghani's has the military killed? How many thousands of families grieve for lost loved ones? How many people when seeing an american feel disgust? Fear?

This is want you get

When you promote cult worship of the Military. These deaths will not be seen by the majority as a tragic waste of a unnecessary occupation, but the required sacrifices to the altar of Mars to maintain an inflated sense national pride and honor.

More flags at half mast. More little flags planted at grave sites during Veterans and Memorial day. More "Support the Troops" banners.

I use to think politics was only about money and power. Now I know its about needing blood to be spilled so the power brokers can rouse the rabble.

I liken this to

my being in a strangers home at night stealing his things he wakes up grabs his 45 and blows me away....I knew or should have known the risks before entering..You can't defend these people, if you do your no better than the people who sent them there in the first place. Tough shit, wake up and grow up..Rockefeller's signing your checks boys and girls. your defending rape, murder and pillage..the state of local law ewnforcements encroachments on your liberties ought to be a clue.

Would someone just cut the BullSh*t and bring these troops home already? It's pissing me off. No one likes us anymore, and until we stop sticking our noses into their business, no one ever will.

So we are training and arming our own enemies and when they get the chance, they kill our men. Sounds like a government thought up plan all right!

hope they catch the murderer

....and faces the fullest extent of the law.

If this happened in Chechnya the Russians would publicly execute the guy if they caught him imo.

Are you serious ?

Our troops, or better said killers for the elite and the oil companies are sending drones into these countries cities and blasting wedding parties, killing 100 - 200 people for the sake of killing one Al Quaeda member and their working for us..ARE YOU SERIOUS ?

Ron Paul: "Bring the troops home".

Afghanistan is not Iraq. Afghans are mountain folk, very sturdy, have a tradition of putting up a strong defense, defeated Genghis Khan & the british empire's army, held back the russian (czar's) empire, defeated the soviet army. Now the U$ military is trying it$ luck backed by massive & magical $ resource$, dragging with it 20+ of NATO & 20+ of other countries' $oldier$ following U$ command, add many mercenaries like Blackwater, etc.
The Afghans are fighting on their own turf, their homeland, the lofty mountains that canNot be bombed away. The US airforce tried that in Tora Bora, the resistance fighters moved away. They are patient, and have the stamina for a long fight that can go into generations.

The important thing to note & remember = the afghan tribes are the original Israel, - the fakes of zion know this. the zionist have ordered their slaves, i.e. NATO, to attack the real Israel who follow the original Deen (religion) of Ibrahim (Abraham?). They are very faithful, and cling loyally to their "Way of Life".

What Happened...?

...to that supposed cultural tradition they have about hospitality towards invited guests and protecting them while in your home?

if you go to enemy territory

then don't wonder you get killed. Their luck and manifestation of local hospitality maybe was that they didn't get tortured - which would most probably happen in the opposite case after they would be invited for a dinner in the "civilized" USA.

I think the key word is "invited"

consider this and you can answer your own question.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
