    Default Taliban bomb US embassy in Kabul

    Now what?

    https://www.foxnews.com/world/explos...ry-of-9-11.amp

    A rocket exploded near the U.S. embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan early Wednesday, the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
    A plume of smoke rose over central Kabul shortly after midnight and sirens could be heard. Inside the embassy, employees heard this message over the loudspeaker: "An explosion caused by a rocket has occurred on compound."
    Officials gave the all-clear about an hour after the blast and reported no injuries. The NATO mission, which is nearby, also said no personnel had been injured.
    The attack was the first major action in Kabul since President Trump announced Monday that peace talks with the Taliban to end America's longest war are "dead." Over the weekend, Trump abruptly canceled planned meetings with Afghan and Taliban leaders at Camp David. The Taliban had claimed responsibility for two car bombings last week, one of which killed an American soldier.

    then dumb and silent we may be led,

    We'll be taking our military home. Let the folks there figure it out. I'm not in charge, but if I were I'd bomb the heck out of Taliban camps; ISIS known hiding places and anything to do with al Queda, which has come back for comfort.

    I'd get some human intels in place, to repeat bombings as necessary.

    Draw down on our unannounced schedule.

    The place is a wasteland and our troops are fighting literally animals that will live in caves and wait to attack. They commit terror attacks on innocents as much as possible.

    If it were me? We would securely load everything up and get the F out of there, and drop a nuke on them somehow. We gotta have something that will do the job but not spread and kill more somehow.

    Unless and until we bomb the fuck out of eastern Pakistan the Taliban will remain a threat. Myself I'd go General Sherman on their asses and burn every potential poppy field in both countries right to the fucking ground.

    Border to border with Agent Orange on a day the wind is blowing toward Pakistan. That should work.
    My quota of bullshit cop outs from closed minds is full today, Tomorrow's not looking good for you either.
