Afghanistan’s largest terrorist attack on 2011: more than 50 killed

More than 50 people died and 90 was injured as a result of militant attacks on the courthouse in the Afghan city of Farah. Most of those killed are civilians. Responsibility for the attack took the representatives of the Taliban.


The attack began at 9 in the morning local time. Initially it was reported that the purpose of the attack was the residence of the governor, but this was not confirmed later.

As the head of the city police Aga Nur Kemtoz stated in an interview with the Associated Press, the militants managed to avoid inspections, as they drove up to the building in army vehicles and were wearing military uniforms. Their vests were filled with explosives.

The Taliban blew up one of the cars near the buildings where there were a large number of people. Two nearby banks were hit by overflowing customers. After the explosion, the extremists proceeded to storm the court. According to the Air Force, after a fierce firefight, the militants still managed to gain a foothold in one of the buildings of the complex.

The dead were 34 civilians, 10 Afghan soldiers and 9 militants. Most of the injured are civilians.

According to police, the goal of the militants was the release of 15 arrested Taliban, who had previously been brought to court. However, this was not possible.

The terrorist attack has been the bloodiest in the country since 2011.

        So you came there to control drug trafficking and train the Taliban at the same time, so that in due time they would go through the pine Central Asian countries to destabilize the situation there.

    Durak blow their people, and that's the price of this whole struggle for freedom. They do not fight for any kind of freedom; they fight for the right to make money on drugs. It has long been necessary to throw nuclear weapons there, so as not to boast that they are invincible.

      Touching care for peasants



      Neither Kabul, nor its Western partners participating in the mission of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, are able to establish any effective anti-drug fight in this country, many experts believe.

      If in Russia the problem has reached the level of political leadership, then Westerners treat it, let's say, “philosophically” - they acknowledge the fact of its existence, but they don’t want to include their efforts in the fight against drugs. Although there are rare exceptions - more on that below.

      So, Vladimir Putin states in his article “Russia and a Changing World”: “The terrorist and drug threat emanating from Afghanistan does not decrease ... Drug trafficking has become one of the most acute threats, undermines the gene pool of entire nations, creates a breeding ground for corruption and crime and leads to a destabilization of the situation in Afghanistan itself ... Russia is faced with real heroin aggression, causing enormous damage to the health of our citizens. "[vii]

      And what do we see from NATO?

      In March 2010, NATO once again rejected Russia's calls to completely destroy the opium poppy crops in Afghanistan, offering in response that Russia should provide them with more assistance in the fight against the Taliban. Do not cope? Or are they cunning?

      They are cunning! Here Russia transfers to the United States a list of Afghan drug lords in order to stop opium production as much as possible. And what will NATO mutter in response? NATO spokesman James Appathurai, with a blue eye, replies that Afghan farmers cannot be taken away from their only source of income without “providing an alternative to work.” [Viii]

      The subtext is simple - let the Russians drown in the Afghan "dope". Do not believe? Do you think he really "pity" the unfortunate Afghan peasants?

      Just think, why did they suddenly feel “sorry” for the Afghan peasants? They do not “feel sorry for” anyone, but they regretted the Afghan peasants! The number of people destroyed by their NATO bombs over the past two decades is reaching enormous numbers! Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya ... And suddenly - a touching concern for the Afghan peasants.

        Yes, they are still helping them, for example, in the export of dope .......! It is important for a country-business and such a country to profit from the war, and where to get profit if there is no oil where you are fighting, it’s right in drugs!

    It would be better if the Taliban did not blow up people, but began to destroy poppy crops. Thus, the CIA’s income would be significantly undermined.

      It turns out that almost all poppy crops are located in the territory "controlled" by the Taliban, it is doubtful that they will destroy their source of income.

    Americans around the world are trying to control raw materials, and the Agan poppy is also a kind of raw material, so it’s a misconception that they don’t know something.

    It became interesting and revered the UN resolution on which the amers are there (UN Security Council resolution 1386 [10] of December 20, 2001) and stumbled into the Resolution 1373 (2001) reference to an interesting 1970 norm - "reaffirming the proclamation of the General Assembly in its
    declarations of October 1970 (995_569) (2625 (XXV)) and
    affirmed by the Security Council in its resolution 1189 (1998) of
    August 13, 1998, the principle that, inter alia,
    that each Member State is required to refrain from organizing,
    abetting, assisting or participating in terrorist
    acts in another state or from indulging organizational
    activities within its territory aimed at
    the commission of such acts. "This is what the Americans, Europeans, the Arab League, Turkey, officially violate this rule in Syria, because then our people in the person of Lavrov do not act and do not go to the GAAG tribunal to soak up the reputation of people. Let them justify themselves to their voters yes and less time will climb into our affairs

    I read not so long ago a book by T.V. Grachev "Invisible Khazaria". Everything is painted in quite detail there about the Afghan peasantry, names are given, etc. And NATO aviation is also used for the transfer of "agricultural products" from the south to the north, i.e. to our borders with you.
