Several Taliban militants wearing suicide vests stormed a guest house used by U.N. staff in the heart of the Afghan capital early Wednesday, killing 12 people. The dead included six U.N. staff. This attack was the biggest in a series of attacks intended to undermine next month's presidential runoff election. These unscrupulous villains of religious lunacy believe that they will deter the political process of electing a president by their intimidation and also find favor with God for killing these people. How can we ever win a war with such people or concede to their constant threat to kill all Americans in any manner they can use to do so?
One of the six U.N. dead was an American, the U.S. Embassy said. A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the early morning assaults, which also included rocket attacks at the presidential palace and the city's main luxury hotel.
Once again, these attacks are planned to destroy political agendas and kill political leaders, but the Taliban insurgents will target innocent crowds, killing many women and children in places, trying to kill one official or military leader. One of their rockets hit the outer area of the presidential palace and another slammed into a Hotel where foreign travelers frequent. The one hitting near the presidential palace caused no injuries and the one in the hotel, failed to detonate, but filled the area with smoke, causing people to flee to the basement. I fear this is a situation we have where we are damned if we do and damned if we don't continue. Get ready to back peddle some more Mr. Obama.... If you're not Muslim, you better not pull those troops you promised to pull. (right after these thousands you're going to send over shortly anyway.....)
Will we ever learn anything about foreign countries?
Target is now recalling Halloween packaged flashlights made in China, that will overheat and melt. There are two different kinds as the pictures below show. Both will overheat and melt, possibly causing burns to the little kids carrying them. Hopefully if they get burned, they will not stick their fingers into their mouth and get lead poisoning or poisoned by Melamine. Won't we ever learn? How many times must this crap happen before we shut the Chinese off for their brazen disregard for public safety...even their own?
