Afghan soldier opens fire on US troops, wounds 7

So-called “Blue on Green Shootings have been used by traitorous tasked with protecting their area of operation and work with U.S. and coalition troops.

 

Many are complete cowards who run away from the fight.

They seem to have no problem killing our Marines and soldiers when they are sleeping.

Lt Col. Alan West, Army Ranger, served tours in front line combat in Afghanistan and Iraq.

He knew he had a traitor inside the wire who was planning on attacking as they slept.

No one was harmed, he didn’t shoot the bastard, he just scared the crap of him.

Colonel’s West’s career was through for his act of bravery.

He received a full retirement with pension and health care.

An Afghan soldier opened fire on US troops today at a military base in Balkh province and wounded seven American soldiers.

 

 

Today’s insider attack, also known as green-on-blue attack, is the second of its kind in the last week, and the third reported so far this year.

Resolute Support, NATO’s command in Afghanistan, confirmed that seven US troops were wounded and “evacuated for treatment.”

One Afghan soldier was killed and another was wounded.

 

 

It is unclear if the Afghan soldier acted on his own, or if he was turned or infiltrated by the Taliban to carry out the assault.

The Taliban have not commented on the incident at this time.

This latest insider attack took place at the Afghan National Army’s 209th Shaheen Corps Headquarters in Mazar-i-Sharif in Balkh province.

The 209th Shaheen Corps Headquarters was the scene of a deadly assault just two months ago, when 10 Taliban fighters fought their way into the base and slaughtered more than 140 Afghan soldiers before being gunned down.

The Taliban said it infiltrated the Afghan National Army to carry out that attack. Afghanistan’s Minister of Defense and the Army chief of staff resigned, and four Army Corps commanders were fired in the wake of the assault.

Taliban views insider attacks as a key tactic to defeat US.

 

See the entire article below.

In the past, the Taliban has infiltrated Afghan security forces to carry out such strikes or convinced soldiers or policemen to turn their weapons on coalition personnel.

In 2012, Mullah Omar, the founder and first emir of the Taliban, announced that he created the “Call and Guidance, Luring and Integration” department “with branches … now operational all over the country,” to encourage defections and strikes on coalition forces.

Since Omar’s announcement, the Taliban has said that insider operations are a key part of its military strategy when announcing the commencement of its annual spring offensive.

“These operations will involve conventional attacks, guerrilla warfare, complex martyrdom attacks, insider attacks, and use of IEDs to achieve their objectives,” the Taliban said in its statement on Operation Mansouri, the 2017 offensive.

Insider attacks on the rise

Today’s insider attack is the third recorded by FDD’s Long War Journal so far this year.

Many go unreported as they may not cause casualties. It is is also the second of its kind in the past week.

The first incident this year, on March 19 at a base in Helmand province, resulted in three US troops being wounded.

The culprit, an Afghan National Army officer from the 215th Maiwand Corps, was killed.

The Taliban did not claim credit for the shootingbut did acknowledge it. Zabihullah Mujahid, an official Taliban spokesman described the Afghan solider as “an Afghan with a sense of patriotism.”

These incidents have decreased from 44 in 2012 to just two in 2016 and three more so far this year. This is due to a dramatic decrease in coalition forces after the end of the surge in 2012 as well as improved security measures.

[For in-depth information, see Green-on-blue attacks in Afghanistan: the data.]

The insider attacks have ramped up as the Trump administration sent an additional 4,000 soldiers to Afghanistan in an effort to halt the Taliban’s gains over the past several years. The bulk of these forces are expected to partner with Afghan soldiers in the field in an attempt to improve their combat effectiveness.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    I agree with a kill these Muslims assholes. I do not agree with using the nuclear option.

    The Islamic / Muslim problem willo not be easy to solve. The history of 1400 years on inbreeding has create a society of very low inteligence people – billions of them.

    The difficulty of re-educated morons is very large.

    Mental illness challenges will be the bigger problem going forward.

  3. “Green On Blue–Damned Fool: You” is as valid today as it was when I first published it nearly eight years ago.. http://islamexposed.blogspot.com/2012/09/green-on-blue-damned-fool-you.html

    Our traitors continue to sacrifice our youth on the altar of political expediency and cowardice.

    Muslims are terrorists. No matter how intensely you wish otherwise, they are enemies, not allies against the enemy. Taliban & Northern Alliance may hate each other as rivals for power but they hate us more.

    Training and arming Muslims in the hope that they will fight other Muslims instead of us is the Acme of Insane stupidity.

    Afghan soldiers are only that in the loosest sense of the word. I watched a documentary on their fighting, very odd. One segment featured Afghan troops being filmed by French video-journalists. A large area, one side being bad guys, the other good guys, awaited a U.S. airstrike. The French video-journalists turned off their cameras awaiting the arrivial of the strike, but it must have been from a very high altitude since the explosions began unexpectedly. These Afghan soldiers are seen coming out of the area, injured, bloody, and walking up to their fellow good guys. A vehicle pulls up, a U.S. officer gets out, and he’s told by the good guys the U.S. bombed the wrong side. The officer mutters a few things, saying no, and gets in the vehicle and it takes off. The remarkable thing is the Afghans were laughing, heartily, at the injured.

    Another segment, after a conflict, bad guys laying dead everywhere, the good guys start taking their boots, rifling through their pockets, and incredibly, they just leave, to go back to their homes, with their commander yelling for them to return, but they continue, walking off into the sunset.

    And when you have soldiers willing to commit suicide to kill the enemy, their is no way to trust them, as at any moment you might be betrayed with catastrophic results.
