The Daily Dead: 5 more Americans killed in Afghanistan

We've said it all before. More dead for lies. More troops for the grinder?

KABUL — Insurgents killed another five US soldiers in Afghanistan's southern Taliban stronghold, NATO said Friday, with their commander poised to request more troops to avoid failure in the eight-year war.

Two soldiers were killed outright and three later died of their injuries in a trio of separate incidents on Thursday, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said Friday.

"Two members were killed and one died from wounds as a result of an improvised explosive device (IED) detonation," ISAF said, referring to the remote-controlled bombs that have become the scourge of troops in Afghanistan.

"One service member died of gunshot wounds from an insurgent attack and one service member died of wounds sustained in an insurgent attack while on patrol," the statement added. {more -AFP}


  1. G20 protestors hauled away in unmarked cars. Prep the Molotovs.
    The chickens are coming home and it ain't to roost.

  2. Call me cynical, but why do I think that the Iran story was released the day after General McChrytal's report requesting 500,000 more of our kids to fight and die in Afghanistan was released so they could generate hysteria and clog up the news cycle and bury the troop increase request?
    The WH had that info several years ago, so why release it now?

    And all that fear mongering about domestic terrorists buried any news about the Audit the Fed bill that was discussed in Congress on Friday?

    I must getting grumpy and paranoid in my old age.

  3. Cynical, grumpy and paranoid are survival mechanisms against all the lies.
