Three die in Taliban attack in Afghanistan

Jun 17 2013, 5:49am CDT | by

Kabul, June 17 (IANS) Three civilians were killed and two others wounded Monday when Taliban attacked two trucks in eastern Afghan province of Laghman.

Kabul, June 17 — Three civilians were killed and two others wounded Monday when Taliban attacked two trucks in eastern Afghan province of Laghman.

"The insurgents ambushed a two-truck convoy in Sang-e-Kalima area of the province Monday, killing three drivers and injuring two others," reported Xinhua citing a statement issued by the provincial government.

Provincial governor Fazlullah Mujadidi condemned the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

The Taliban have intensified attacks since April when they launched an annual rebel offensive against Afghanistan and NATO-led forces stationed in the country.

The Taliban urged civilians to stay away from official gatherings, military convoys and centres regarded as the legitimate targets by militants.

London Imam Anjem Choudary declared that Sharia Law is “in all respects, [is] much better than the system we have today in American and in Britain” in an interview on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. Choudary also denied that Christians and Jews persecuted by ISIS, stating “I don't take my news from Fox News or the BBC. If you look at the people on the ground, I think you'll find that they have a completely different story. The Christians and ...

How Climate Change Helped ISIS

Sep 29 2014 4:42pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

As the Obama administration undertakes a highly public, multilateral campaign to degrade and destroy the militant jihadists known as ISIS, ISIL and the Islamic State, many in the West remain unaware that climate played a significant role in the rise of Syria's extremists. A historic drought afflicted the country from 2006 through 2010, setting off a dire humanitarian crisis for millions of Syrians. Yet the four-year drought evoked little response from Bashar al-Assad's governmen ...

Atlantic Reporter Compares Palin to Burqa-Wearing Taliban Supporter

Sep 19 2014 1:19pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Unfortunately I don't possess the intellectual nuance required to grasp why an elite leftwing journalist  would think it was okay to compare a female governor and mother of five to a burqa-wearing Taliban supporter brandishing a pistol. Apparently, Jeffrey Goldberg's intellectual superiority is so superior only dogs can hear it: -- -- Goldberg deleted the tweet.  He didn't apologize. Beca ...

Obama's ISIS Speech Can Only Harm U.S. Interests

Sep 10 2014 8:38am CDT | Source: Big Government

As President Barack Obama prepares to address the nation Wednesday evening about his strategy for defeating ISIS--a strategy he recently said did not exist--it is worth noting that the president's foreign policy speeches are rarely helpful, and often harmful, to U.S. interests and foreign policy goals. Focused on politics rather than on policy, Obama is more articulate about the limits of U.S. power than the goals for which he intends t ...
