    At Least Nine Taliban Suicide Bombers Attack US Air Base in Jalalabad – Several Dead (Video)​

    Obama’s peace partners strike again…
    At least nine Taliban suicide bombers attacked an air base in Jalalabad, Afghanistan today.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zge_BQK4PG4]Live update: Taliban attack NATO base in Jalalabad - YouTube[/ame]

    Suicide car bombers detonated bombs and fired missiles into the US compound.
    Reuters reported:


    Suicide attackers detonated bombs and fired rockets outside a major U.S. base in Afghanistan on Sunday, killing five people in a brazen operation that highlighted the country’s security challenges ahead of the 2014 NATO combat troop pullout.

    Local police officials said bodies in Afghan police and military uniforms were scattered around the entrance of the airfield in the eastern city of Jalalabad after a two-hour battle. A Taliban spokesman said the militant group had launched the 6 a.m. assault.

    The Taliban, who have been fighting U.S.-led NATO and Afghan forces for more than a decade, sometimes dress in uniforms for attacks.

    Who said that they were his "peace partners"? Is the Taliban one cohesive organization or is broken up into different factions? Are you happy about this attack?

    No I'm not happy about the attack, especially while the "Taliban" are in negotiations with the Oblamer regime. Are you referring to the "Haggani"? They're Pakistani Taliban that Oblamer has refused to accept their presence in the Stan.

    No, I am referring to this fact: "The Taliban are internally divided and unwilling to meet Washington’s demands to sever all ties to Al Qaeda, renounce violence and accept the commitments to political and human rights in Afghanistan’s Constitution."

    "Still, the United States has not and should not give up completely on a negotiated solution or at least some movement toward reconciliation. And it can’t wait until 2014 or later. Although there are no formal talks under way, there are contacts between the Taliban and Afghans and others. "

    I don't know what your angle is, but Obama didn't get us into this war. Our best bet is to withdraw, keep the drones flying, and TCB when the need arises.

    "Military and diplomatic officials here and in Washington said that despite attempts to engage directly with Taliban leaders this year, they now expect that any significant progress will come only after 2014, once the bulk of NATO troops have left. "

    Again like I stated before:
    "Divisions between the Taliban’s political wing and its military commanders represent another obstacle to serious talks. When the discussions first became public, “the military wing of the Taliban was very critical,” said Syed Muhammad Akbar Agha, a former Taliban military commander who lives in Kabul. "
