“439 Taliban militants were killed and 161 others were wounded as a result of Afghan Army operations inNangarhar, Laghman, Logar, Paktia, Uruzgan, Zabul, Ghor, Farah, Balkh, Helmand Kapisa and Baghlan provinces during the last 24 hours, according to the Afghan MOD”…

Why only 439? They may as well say 439,000,000.

Taliban losses in combat have been very minimal. The only somewhat large casualties were after the futile indiscriminate bombing around Kandahar last week. It is generally believed and borne by ground evidence that around 300 Taliban and Pakistani special force advisors have been killed and about 500 wounded. This is a small price to pay for capturing 70%-80% of the country as the ANA has simply fled the field or deserted.

#SanctionPakistan trends as violence rages in Afghanistan

Twitter hashtag shows the antipathy many Afghans hold for perceived role of their neighbour in the continuing war.

Over last twenty years Afghanistan saga has revealed both the false ideology of US Neo-Cons and the physical limits of US power. The Neo-Con foreign policy doctrine claimed Afghanistan could be pacified and turned into a subordinate vassal. Nope, that load of cobblers failed at first hurdle. But equally, the US was far from home in central Asia and needed foreign support, and so they fed vast sums into Pakistan, as an erstwhile ally. Only it was quickly apparent the Pakistani’s were taking the money and playing both sides of the pitch, as they maintained intelligence links to Taliban and allowed safe refuge and recruitment into Taliban forces throughout the period. There is no other way to describe this than as a comprehensive US failure.

US and western militaries in general are incompetent mercenary armies recruited from the drug addicted dregs of failed violent societies that have no respect for humanity and their political “leaders” are even more corrupt and racist. They see wars like a football game with “quick victory” and indiscriminately kill civilians by massive bombing of women and children in “shock and awe”, which is counter productive and makes more enemies. In the last century they were overtly racist and looked at the Asians in Korea and Vietnam as not “martial enough” but soon found out different.

In the case of Iraq and Afghanistan recently, the US which is officially the most ignorant braggart in history, totally misjudged the situation on the ground and its defeat was certain. The mass war crimes that US, Australia and NATO war criminals committed in the tribal Afghan and Iraqi societies ensured determined resistance against the invaders. US military is corrupt and not really a fighting force. They are much more suited for Hollywood type propaganda projection.

Ghazni another ancient city of various Afghan and Persian ruling clans is about to fall in the next day or two. It is now generally believed that the Taliban and Pakistanis are aiming for a 911 victory in Kabul to show utter US defeat and humiliation. The fall of Ghazni in the Pashtun heartland close to the Durand Line will have long term strategic implications. The puppet ANA is now being squeezed into a tightening belt around Kabul which itself has been infiltrated. There are reports that Ashraf Ghani is about to flee the country,

Taliban take control of Ghazni

There are also reports that Farah and even Lashkargah have been captured. And Herat will follow very soon.

As I had predicted GHAZNI HAS FALLEN without much of fight. This is a mortal loss for the US installed puppet regime and now Kabul is within a few days march.

Taliban take Ghazni city on road to Afghan capital

Remember whiteman talk with forked tongue
And USA/Britain/NATO have invaded Afghanistan based on subtle Racial war
Saddest thing I have observed and read is Devious USA/British/
REMEMBER WHITEMAN TALK WITH FORKED TONGUE
NATO lie about Taliban being taken as the truth and Taliban being
Portrayed as being INTRANSIGENT AND NOT WILLING TO COMPROMISE
EXACT MANTRA THAT WAS DISHED OUT BY USA AGAINST IRANIAN REVOLUTIONARIES LED BY KHOMEINI in 1979
When CIA tried their level best to impose their Puppet Mehdi Bazergan As compromised Candice giving illusion of having popular support with their mass media blitz
Khomeini flatly refused and Exact positron isBy Taliban that GHANI and his gang are CIA/Indian Puppets must go peacefully
Talks in Doha are waste of Time

Zalmay Khalilzad is a war criminal and a treacherous CIA agent and he is the US chief negotiator. It like having Dracula in charge of the blood bank. Only US and western expulsion from the region will bring peace..

Americunt LOSERS

The stupid Americunt ar$ehole LOSERS deserve a gold medal for starting more wars and losing them than the whole world combined. Dumbass morons.
