An Afghan soldier killed a U.S. general and wounded 14 coalition troops in a machine gun attack at a military training facility in Kabul, a top Western and senior Afghan official said on Tuesday.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity.

ISAF, the international force in Afghanistan, said the attack took place at a British military training academy in the capital. It said one ISAF service member was killed, without giving details, and the incident was under investigation.

The German military said 14 coalition troops had been wounded, including a German general.

"The wounded German general, whose life is no longer in danger, is being given medical treatment," it said.

Seven other Americans and five British troops were among the wounded, according to the Afghan official.
Makes you proud of the thousands and thousands of US casualties to create that "Beacon" . . . They love us so ! !

Heard this earlier today, but figures were not issued at that time.

Why wait until the end of the year. We could have all troops out of there by Saturday if we wanted.

You can't fault the troops per se (my cousin has two boys who fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan, one got blown up by a mine but survived). However, history should have shown that nothing was going to be accomplished by a another war in the Middle East. The area has been occupied many times for thousands of years and has yet to see much peace. The main reason why this is so seemingly cannot be discussed rationally on the Internet, most forums forbid even mentioning it.

I don't blame the men and women on the ground they go where they are told.
History shows that each new generation fails to learn from the past, and unfortunately we put the people making the choices in charge.

It's too bad that the US (and some other countries too) doesn't still have a true militia where young people could serve to actually defend the country without being sent to support its "interests." I know members of the National Guard who have served more time in the Middle East than some active-duty soldiers. Several states, including one I used to live in, were unable to fully use their Guard during local emergencies because most of the units were over in Iraq.

. . then we have our half witted governor sending the Guard to the border to babysit so that he can crow to the Tea Bangers and beat his chest!

I say yank ALL troops out of the entire middle east, everywhere, remove ALL Americans from there and let them fight among themselves.
We fight because our government says to, we send troops who don't want to be there, to defend something that cant defend because you cant beat God, those people over there fight because their God told them to.
How can you beat that?
