When the Taliban were in charge, Afghanistan harbored terrorists who struck at the United States. In retaliation, the US invaded Afghanistan and toppled the government. Now, after considerable investment and loss of American lives, Afghanistan is back to its old ways. It is a nation filled with Muslims, many if not most of which are radical and violent people. Their government under Karzai has been unable to govern the land with certainty and security. Today’s news that a security guard murdered three American doctors should be taken as continued declaration of war. Just as Tony Blair warned yesterday as reported in the story referenced below, Islam has become a universal enemy to free people because it is evil at its core. What are America's options?
- Withdraw all assistance from Afghanistan and isolate the place.
- Renew the commitment of war with the Taliban.
- Establish new and improved military bases from which to continue the war against the Taliban and governments that fail to fight them effectively and otherwise harbor terror.
“Afghan security guard shoots dead 3 American doctors at hospital
Published April 24, 2014
The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan confirmed Thursday that three American doctors were killed by an Afghan security guard who opened fire at a Kabul hospital.
The shooting at Cure International Hospital in the western part of the Afghan capital was the latest attack on foreign civilians in the city this year. Two others, including an American nurse, were wounded, according to Afghanistan's Health Ministry.
It was unclear whether the Taliban were behind Thursday's shooting, though the insurgents have claimed several major attacks that killed foreign civilians this year, an escalation after years of mostly targeting foreign military personnel and Afghan security forces.
In January, a Taliban attack on a popular Kabul restaurant with suicide bombers and gunmen killed more than a dozen people, while in March gunmen slipped past security at an upscale hotel in the Afghan capital and killed several diners in its restaurant.
The hospital shooting is also the second "insider attack" by a member of Afghan security forces targeting foreign civilians this month.
On April 4, an Afghan police officer shot two Associated Press staff working in the eastern province of Khost, killing photographer Anja Niedringhaus and wounding veteran correspondent Kathy Gannon.
