Suicide Bomber kills 13 U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

NATO forces, led by the United States, are still mired down in Afghanistan, the country with a history of lost wars and pretend conquerors.

Today, a crazed Afghanistan fanatic no doubt recruited by the equal crazed Taliban attacked a convoy killing 13 of our children.

At one point I was in support of the president’s position on this war, but now not so much.  We have enough troubles at home and we no longer need to be involved in this futile and dangerous conflict.  It’s time to get the hell out of there.

Here’s the story:

A Taliban suicide bomber rammed a van into an armored NATO bus today in Kabul, killing 13 American troops and four Afghans, US and Afghan officials said. It’s the deadliest attack on coalition forces in more than two months. The armored personnel carrier, known as a Rhino, was sandwiched between of a convoy of mine-resistant military vehicles traveling on a four-lane highway frequently used by NATO forces in a southwestern section of the city.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Kabul attack, which occurred in front of the American University, as well as for another suicide bombing outside a government intelligence office in the northwest province of Kunar. In other violence, a man wearing an Afghan military uniform opened fire on a joint NATO-Afghan base, killing three NATO service members in Uruzgan province, an area in the restive south that is traditionally viewed as the Taliban’s stronghold.

What do you think?  Is it time we got out of Afghanistan?
