Bombshell Barack, Head of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral Mike Mullen, said more NATO troops will die in Afghanistan and the war will get worse before it gets better. While Mullen went on to say that getting control of the escalating increase in insurgent activity is within reach, the message was clear, more soldiers die before NATO took the lead. In a country where coalition deaths are fast approaching 2000, over a period of ten years, new casualties have caused an international outcry.
Mullen’s comments came shortly after the Taliban announced they were holding one of two U.S. military, according to the Taliban, had wandered into the territory of the insurgents. The second of the two men was killed. A NATO spokesman declined any comment on the demands of the Taliban. While the Afghan government, told a conference last week that promised to complete the security throughout the country by the year 2014, civilians are increasingly angered by the non-military casualties. The last wave of centers of anti-coalition sentiment in recent incursions by foreign forces in Sangin.
The number of reports of civilian casualties has been growing in the region. The Afghan government is investigating reports that the civil claim innocent villagers were killed during a raid by supposedly friendly forces in Sangin. While NATO forces admit that you know the report, declined comment. With the deaths of civilians and the rumors of increased military activity, many of those who once applauded the coalition forces are outraged by their actions. While U.S. troops withdraw from some areas, the Taliban and their supporters move in and retrieve the lost ground
The district of Barg-e-Matal, an area that has changed hands several times, has been taken over by Taliban guerrillas. Washington’s strategy to move U.S. troops most populated regions makes these remote areas open to the recovery by the insurgents.
Even with the placement of President Barack Obama of thousands of additional U.S. troops, the violence in Afghanistan is the worst that has been in nine years. Obama’s goal was to eradicate insurgents in the south where they have maintained a stronghold. With troops spread thin across the country, has become a deadly game of cat and mouse. June was the deadliest month for coalition troops since 2001. Over 100 soldiers were killed last month alone. Added to the large civilian death toll, the numbers are reaching record.
In a press conference in Kabul, Mullen said, as we continued our force levels and our operations during the summer … we will likely see more victims hard and levels of violence, “he went on to say that progress is” slow but steady. ”
As to how two U.S. soldiers found their way into insurgent territory, just 100 km south of the capital, a provincial official said alcohol was found in the vehicle of the military. A Taliban spokesman said the fate of the remaining service technician would be decided by the group’s leadership. “We have the body of the dead soldier and the other is alive. We have had a safe place,” said the spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.
At this point, very little information has been released to the media about the two soldiers. A U.S. soldier opinion of others, to be held by the Taliban is Bowe Bergdahl. His capture in June led to a massive search was unsuccessful. Bergdahl has been seen in videos denouncing the war. U.S. Military officials are calling the Taliban propaganda images.
