An article I found. May Allah (swt) bless all the innocent people who have been killed overseas silently by the US army and other militant groups...

US planes bomb 'Taleban' compound

US fighter planes have bombed a suspected Taleban hideout in the same area of eastern Afghanistan where US servicemen are missing, officials say.

A senior Afghan official told the BBC 25 people had been killed in two air raids on a house in Chechal village.

US military spokesman Lt Col Jerry O'Hara told AP news agency: "We conducted an air strike on a target we deemed we had to hit immediately."

At least 39 people have been killed in three other clashes in Afghanistan.

More than 500 people, most of them suspected militants, are now estimated to have lost their lives in bloodshed in the south and east in the past three months.

Rising concern

Lt Col O'Hara said the air strike in the east was carried out with precision-guided weapons on a target that was "intelligence driven".

He said the target was an "enemy compound" in Kunar province.

A high-ranking Afghan security official in the province, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the BBC there had been two separate bombing runs on Chechal village.

Villagers who went to help those killed and injured in the first raid were hit by the second strike, he said.

The official said security forces had been sent to the area to find out who had been in the houses that were hit.

US officials say they have "no information" to confirm or deny the reports that civilians were killed.

There is rising US concern over the whereabouts of a team of US special forces on a reconnaissance mission who have been missing since Tuesday.

A helicopter which was sent to pick them up was shot down, killing 16 servicemen on board.

US forces hunting the missing ground team say they are using all available means, including unmanned surveillance aircraft and numerous ground troops.

But their efforts have been severely hampered by bad weather.

Convoy attacked

Violence has been escalating in Afghanistan ahead of parliamentary elections due in September.

On Saturday, the governor of central Uruzgan province, Jan Mohammad Khan, said 25 Taleban rebels and six Afghan soldiers had died in two clashes on Friday.

Taleban spokesman, Mullah Abdul Latif Hakimi, said six insurgents had died and 14 policemen were killed.

In a second clash in Kandahar on Saturday, the US military said Afghan and US troops had killed two militants who had attacked them with small arms fire.

In the third incident, in eastern Paktika province, two Afghan soldiers and four policemen were reported killed after their convoy, which included UN staff, hit a landmine.

The provincial police chief was among those wounded, Paktika's governor, Gulab Mangal, said.

If it wasent for this war in Afganistan none of the innocent people that were killed would of been killed and if it was not for Iraq Abu Musab would not have been as notorius as he is and 100,000 Iraqi people would not be dead.

Who are the Americans to tell who are the enimies of the Afgan people, and some people forget that the taliban are originally afgans and have the right to fight for thier country.

The Afghan National Army is also fighting the Taliban and the foreign fighters. :) The Afghans who are part of the Taliban are hated by most Afghans, so pretty much, Afghans are in agreement about the Taliban.

At least were in agrement that they are afgans and not Americans or europeans. :D

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

They are also Pakistanis, Chechens, Arabs, etc. Taliban is not only comprised of Afghans. And just because they are Afghans doesn't make it an Afghan vs. US thing because most Afghans are supportive of the international troops for good reasons.

I rather see the muslims die fighting the Kuffar than live under their rule.

Your argument is really pathetic, if it wasnt for Imam Khomaini(ra) or Hizbullah there wouldnt be any bloodshed and the muslims would live happily under the rule of Kufr, but they chose to die rather to give in to Kufr as the Prophets, the Imams and the Sahaba (pbu them) did.

because most Afghans are supportive of the international troops for good reasons.

An atrocious lie, you should see some documentries of prisoner abuse innocent civilian killings and the discontent of the Afghans by daily protests instead of some children chasing the foreign soldiers tanks that the American media floods your brains with.

Roya- if only iraqis thought like this, too.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I'm not sure what you mean, Lester. Clearly there are many many Iraqis who do not see the foreign fighters as honorable men saving them from the kuffar - they see blood, death and destruction. The Shia foremost among them since Shia are often attacked, although nobody is safe in Iraq.

However, it is clearly an OCCUPATION situation in Iraq, whereas that is not the case in Afghanistan. Today, few Afghans encounter American troops in hostile situations, and their presence is very limited in many parts of the country unlike in Iraq. We have international peackeepers in Afg.

Afghans felt imprisoned - bombing the country wasn't as extensive as Iraq, though thousands of Afghans have died and continue to die obviously. However, Afghans were much much much worse off than Iraqis.

You shouldn't confuse the us (any old Muslims) vs. them (kuffar, Americans) with anything more than chosing what you consider the lesser of two evils. Sadam is not a choice, neither is America. There is a lot in between and outside of that, but people become emotional and they rather cling to mujahideen rallying cries than appear to support the Americans.

bollox. Afghanistan is currently ruled by war lords. the war lords are payed off by the Americans to get military bases and support the US installed regime. Its the same system in place as when the Russians were occupying. Except the Russians built hospitals and Universities.

Then you know nothing about what is going on in Afghanistan.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Considering that I am Afghan, have been to Afghanistan several times over the last two years, including many rural areas outside of Kabul, I think it's safe to say that I do know about what's going on in Afghanistan. :)

The power of the warlords is weakening as many have been disarmed. The main problem facing Afghans is the absence of rule of law, enforcement of law and insecurity namely due to criminal gangs and drug traffickers. Furthermore, the so-called warlords are extremely popular among some communities because they protect those communities.

Let me break it down so even Ali Ahmad can understand it.

I. Al Q attacked the The World Trade Centers.

2. A Q was the guest of and supported by the Afghan gov't.

3. The United States asked and then demanded the Afghan gov't give them up. The Afghan response was no.

4. Because the Afghan gov't was already a middle ages regime in would have been easy to put them into the stone age but America didn't do that. What the US chose to do was to attack only Al Q and the Taliban. The US utilized locals to a large extent because it is better that a man die for his country than someone else.

5. As a result the Taliban, AQ and their supporters deserve everything they have coming to them.

6. I deeply lament the lose of innocent civilians but people who are associating with AQ, Taliban, and other insurgents know the risk they are taking.

It is just that simple.

Peace

What are you talking about? The Taliban was the Afghan government - no one else was in charge. So the Americans did attack the de facto Afghan government. And the situation is HARDLY as black and white as your list puts it.
