Deadly Attacks Surge as U.S. Troops Prepare to Leave Afghanistan

    Militant attacks rose 37% in the March quarter in Afghanistan
    As many as 17 million Afghans are also facing food shortages


Violence surged in war-torn Afghanistan in the first quarter of the year as U.S. forces prepared to leave the country after two decades.

Attacks by the Taliban and other militant groups surged 37% in the first quarter from a year earlier, according to a report that cited both U.S. forces and the United Nations. As many as 643 people were killed and 1,395 injured, the U.S. forces reported, while the UN recorded 572 deaths, according to a report by Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, a Pentagon watchdog.

U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw troops by Sept. 11 will remove military support to Afghanistan’s government and strengthen Taliban militants just as the nation’s President Ashraf Ghani struggles with a food security crisis that’s affected nearly 17 million people, or about half of its population.

We should have been gone years ago.

Agreed, but hey if this is how they are going to respond to our leaving I suggest we shower them with parting gifts of as many FAB's as it takes to make them grateful, and think twice about asking us back. Though I am willing to bet that Joe and Kammie's handlers find some excuse to not only leave our soldiers but to increase the number of target for their moslem pals.
