Five American soldiers were killed about noon Today in southern Afghanistan

More than 11 years after the US invaded Afghanistan...Americans are STILL killing and being killed for absolutely NO logical reason!

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — A huge roadside bomb killed five US troops in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, officials said, in the deadliest attack on NATO-led forces this year. "Five American soldiers were killed at about noon when their armoured vehicle hit a powerful roadside mine in Maiwand district," General Abdul Razeq, Kandahar province's police chief, told AFP.

The troops died in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack, NATO's International Security Assistance Force confirmed in a statement without specifying the nationalities of the victims, in line with coalition policy. The attack came four days after three British soldiers were killed in a similar blast in the neighbouring province of Helmand.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Saturday's deaths but Taliban militants frequently use roadside bombs against US-led foreign troops and their Afghan allies.

46 have lost their lives this year alone.

The killing is going to continue...

...until enough people realize they've been duped.

Afghani what?

We are still at war? Oh, wait, there are still about 60,000 left trying to do something.

We could have left in 2002 and had the same results when we do leave in 2014 or whenever.
