The Pentagon has confirmed the information about the death of six US military in Afghanistan after the attack of a suicide bomber of the Taliban movement


RIA News cites a fragment of Ashton Carter’s statement:
I found out with deep regret today that six US servicemen died in Afghanistan on Monday. We are still clarifying the details, but there is information that two more servicemen and a contract worker from the USA were injured. Our military died after a suicide bomber attacked a patrol near Bagram Air Base.

Recall that the responsibility for the attack on the joint US-Afghan patrol took the representatives of the Taliban movement, which recently stepped up their activities in several provinces of Afghanistan. The US Department of State said that "they pray for the dead and their families." According to the latest data, three Afghan soldiers were injured in the blast.

Afghan media reports that a US citizen was killed in Kabul yesterday. Information resource "Haam Press" reports that the alleged killer, who turned out to be a local preacher, has already been detained.

      Exactly, when they fought against the soviets, they considered them “freedom fighters”, and “terrorists” at once as against them. It’s a pity that Russia is not as mean as the United States, otherwise it would have delivered all sorts of interesting news to the quiet one, such as a willow / needle, mobile mortars, heavy machine guns, sniper weapons to the Taliban, so that Americans would also rake in their own skin what it means to fight a little subtle.

    At the Pentagon, as always, the losses in Afghanistan among Americans are less than what they actually are.

      Because the Pentagon in the official loss lists includes only US Army personnel who are American citizens. Losses of mercenaries from all kinds of PMCs, which in fact are the main burden of the occupation service, no one in the US military does not consider. These are not military personnel, and most of them are not even American citizens. Why count them. wassat

        PMCs for this, in principle, were created at the time. A fresh example is Ukraine, who can officially prove that they are there in principle, like a joke about a gopher .....

    The Taliban have a holiday today ... despite the fact that this is a human tragedy ... I can not sympathize with the US army, since US generals and politicians are our worst enemies and the rest of the world who disagrees with US policy.

    The Americans did not greatly sympathize with us when the Turks killed our pilot with the SU-24 ... so there’s a reward on business.

      so what's up and reward

      All this is so. But here's the curious thing: in Afghanistan, two military forces are fighting among themselves (the Taliban and the grouping of the American army), they are using all sorts of methods and methods to inflict harm on the enemy. Someone bombing and rocket attacks from the air, someone sends bombers and saboteurs. The Taliban often use suicide bombers as saboteurs. But what does the "suicide bomber" have to do with it? Terror is when violence and intimidation are directed against civilians. And if the damage is done to the armed enemy, then there can be no talk of terrorism.
      But our, Russian, media stupidly continue to repeat the cliches of Western colleagues. If someone strikes a representative of the armed forces of the countries of the West, then this is certainly a "terrorist."

    And what did the USA achieve in the end? They are not able to defend themselves, and they lie to the whole world that they in Afghanistan “control everything”!

    what is the regularity - if in the Russian / foreign mass media they actively throw in information about the death of Russian military personnel in Syria or about misses / strikes by the air forces of civilian facilities, know that at that time the USA had real losses / misses))

    Maybe this is wrong, but the news is good. I remember on the Internet I found reports from the times of the Union War in Afghanistan, as they showed the crushed columns of our dead and satisfied Mujahideen, calling them fighters with the invaders. Evil itself has grown, it now devours them. Nobody called them to Afghanistan, let them die now. The evil empire must be destroyed.

    The Taliban have noticeably intensified. Therefore, six yesterday, ten tomorrow. It is time for Americans to get used to the fact that their actions will not go unanswered.

    If you rephrase the words of the representative of the State Department on the news about the killing of our pilot, then the poor Afghan peasants have the right to protection from American aggression.

    Well, why immediately a terrorist, this is your bastard son of a rebel. What you sow is what you need.
