Bombs close to presidential rally in Kabul injure bodyguards

KABUL Fri Jun 6, 2014 4:24am EDT

(Reuters) - Two bombs exploded outside a hotel in western Kabul where presidential frontrunner Abdullah Abdullah was holding a rally, striking his car and injuring his bodyguards, the candidate said on Friday.

"When I was leaving the rally from the People's Islamic Unity Party, my car was hit by a roadside bomb and damaged," he said at another rally shortly afterwards.

I wonder if we got reverted back to successful war strategies such as, mmmm, target a few cities, rain down Hellfire for a week.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  This as opposed to "hearts and minds" and "targeted strikes".  Perhaps, taking one way rides up in helicopters or planes and showing them the door at several hundred feet.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
