The terrorist attack on the Afghan wedding: an explosion after a hug

The terrorist attack on the Afghan wedding: an explosion after a hug

For the wedding of the daughter of a member of the Afghan parliament, Ahmad Khan Samangani, in the city of Aibak, they entirely rented the most expensive of the local hotels. Security at the event, which brought together more than three hundred people, was handled personally by the head of the city investigation department. Only invited guests were allowed inside. At the time of the explosion, most of the people gathered on the upper floors, while Ahmad Khan Samangani, in the hall, together with a group of elders of the clan, met another delegation from the neighboring province. He most likely knew the murderer personally. Eyewitnesses say that a man entered and warmly greeted the father of the bride, the men embraced, after which an explosion occurred.

“It was a loud bang, I ran out into the street and saw somewhere 40-50 people, they were lying on the ground, killed and wounded, they asked for help. There was blood all around, bodies were lying around,” said one of the witnesses.

The blast wave threw people through the windows from the hotel lobby. Inside - pieces of furniture and broken glass. The explosion was such a force that damaged the carrier floors, people had to be evacuated from the building. The police counted the 22 killed, another 40 people were hospitalized in serious condition.
So far, no one has taken responsibility for the attack, but local authorities have little doubt that the explosion was the work of the Taliban. The dead Ahmad Khan Samangani is a former Mujahid who, during the Taliban rule in the late nineties, was in the northern alliance and led a partisan struggle with the regime. Even earlier, during the Soviet operation in Afghanistan, he was one of the Mujahid field commanders.

With such a track record of enemies, the deceased was abound. Another thing is interesting - the attack occurred in the relatively calm north of the country, in the province of Samangan. On the eve of a nearby bomb in Laman, a bomb attached to the bottom of the car killed the head of the local office of the Ministry of Women's Affairs. On Monday, July 9, sabotage killed 35 people, seven of them were NATO soldiers, and another six were local police officers who were killed in street fighting in Helmand province. This happened two months after the local authorities announced the start of the third phase of taking control of the country from the NATO military leadership.

    He fought against us! He killed not one of us. What he fought for and ran into! He also served Karzai with the Americans. Although they could have killed them even after the wedding, they are all bad people and they kill each other like bad people.

      Nits found nnidnaya death. Crush like a louse on a scallop. Many of my friends and I would play with his knives. To virgins, he certainly would not have got. Bitch at that time was sitting on amerovskih grandmothers and burned more than one hundred of our guys. If our specialists did it, then honor and praise them. To wet and on toilets and on hotels. This nits worked for us in the province of Khost. Who was in the DRA, he knows that there were the biggest losses. I got into the Host, consider a suicide bomber, but the bubble on the spirits was nemeryannom. Not one million there lies in the stones in USD
      ps The funny thing is that he can't see virgins. handsomely

      Of course it is filthy, but they are unlikely to think about it, if only there were a lot of victims, that's the main task, the Americans are unlikely to leave the "warm" Afghan.

      7 Nata looters died - great! In war, all means are good. Here are the Amers - they do not spare anyone and do not spare, neither children, nor women, nor the elderly.
      Quote: local authorities announced the beginning of the third phase of taking control of the country from the NATO military leadership - in fact they are Afghanistan - their homeland - stupidly leaked to Amer, in exchange for $$$ and promises of a happy life - for the elite. These are TRAITORS, not power.

    The most vile thing you can think of is a terrorist attack.
    Both women and old people and children perish. This is not a war. This is a vile and cowardly murder.
    Every terrorist caught must be executed in public.

    Well, in this case, as I understand it, you can say "what I fought for and ran into"
    Although, again, there were certainly women and innocent children.

      "Every terrorist caught must be publicly executed."
      These non-humans must be destroyed on the spot so that he does not have time to raise his hands up.
      By doing this, we will protect ourselves in the future and will not take our time and waste money from investigations, court and detention.

    Afghanistan is a damned country, the entire population of which God severely punished - soon the Americans will get out of there, and the Afghans will blow up each other at weddings ...

    Not much to rejoice about ...
    No matter how much, and for what matters ...
    We must understand that these are all just sixes, a bargaining chip, cannon fodder. And the US Army is the same ... Even a private soldier who shot himself, even a general who is crazy in the war, like McCain. Even if they are enemies, this, in turn, does not prevent them from being victims of their control, propaganda, etc. The most understandable example is when somewhere in the Arab wilderness they hire militants who neither read nor write, and even more so do not know no business. The same as they, according to the "method" memorized by rote, that brother join the holy war and so on. Then we will pay you a billion dollars, after the victory ... And by that time "either the check or the donkey will die," as they say ...
    Those. I want to sum up the fact that you need to find this "womb", "matrix", etc., which can produce its countless army endlessly. Moreover, only by influencing consciousness. This is where the emphasis on information warfare lies ... And to be happy is of little use that someone swatted the mosquito that bit you before - this is quite an analogy. You need to see the main thing, and not drown in details and imaginary joys of revenge or illusory victories.
    It is necessary to identify key links and conduct an attack on them. And also without choosing funds in the information war. For example, run any rumor and PR for a year. Even any nonsense. For example, that someone smells bad from somewhere, but after a year everyone will already look askance and try to avoid. Or that one politician behind his back speaks badly about another. Those. it is necessary, as in the case of poison for cockroaches, so that one brings it into the nest. They need to create internal problems for them, as they themselves do to others. It is necessary to put specific key figures outside the law and society, to expose their unfavorable intent to everyone else.
    So, I would have had enough imagination in terms of massive intrigue, but in my life my conscience never allowed me to use it. And they use it in turn.
    However, we decide little. This is the lot of the elites.
