Taliban behead 6 Afghan police

Taliban militants beheaded six Afghan police officers during a raid in northern Baghlan province, officials said Wednesday.

The militants had attacked a school, clinic and the district governor's office in Dahanah-e Ghori.

They overran a police checkpoint and killed the six police officers, according to NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Munshi Abdul Majid, the governor of Baghlan.

In all, eight police officers were at the checkpoint, Munshi said. They defended themselves for two hours during the skirmish before the beheadings.

The grisly incident occurred Tuesday in a province that had until recently been largely spared from violence and on the same day that participants at an international donors conference in Kabul agreed that Afghan forces should take over security for the troubled nation by 2014.

"This incident once again demonstrates the brutal, barbaric and senseless acts committed by the Taliban," said Col. Rafael Torres, an ISAF spokesman.

"We remain committed to serving alongside our Afghan partners to improve security and development for all Afghans."

On Wednesday, another international coalition forces service member died in a bombing in southern Afghanistan, an ISAF statement said.

Journalist Matiullah Mati contributed to this report.

    What has to happen is the people need to start turning these people into authorities, have public flogging, close the borders, establish trade with the coalition counties, and start Marshall law for 10 years, educate the majority kids out of the country, then re-introduce them back to Afghanistan.

    George Bush & Dick Cheney used our Christian religion to persecute people who did nothing to us. Yes the people have a different faith that is hard to comprehend. Yes they treat women different and have a different philosophy in life. Yes they dress differently than us, most with no shoes and one pair of pants, living in simple schack we wouldn't put our dog in. Yes, they beleive their is only one God, the same God as ours. The same God the Christians and the Jew's beleive in except they beleive God ordained another prophet, Mohammed, and who know's if he didn't. The Mormons beleive God ordained another prophet also, the last prophet Joesph Smith. The Taliban are not the dogs Bush, Cheney and Corporate America have made them out to be. They're faithful to the same God we are, maybe even more faithful, but that's not for me to judge. These fanatical Muslums have a deep faith, yet they never harmed a hair of anyone of our heads until they we’re schock and awed by George Bush and the Corporate Majority. Yes Alkaida, a small gang of Arab terrorist had one camp out in the middle of nowhere in Afghanastan that they could train and prepare, but their was no relationship to all of the Afghan Taliban religion. Afghanastan is primitive, as if back in the 1600’s with many isolated mountains and canyons that a group like Alkaida could sneak into and live without notice. Alkaida had no ties to the Afghan Government but was just a few hundred men who found a safe piece of land in the middle of nowhere to make camp. Coming to the point, doesn’t it look like Alkaida had no ties to the whole of Afghanastan? Doesn’t it look like Alkaida was made up of Arab’s muslums, not the Afghan Talibanese? That’s where Bush and Cheney made a critical mistake. On 911 Bush feebely deduced that since four Arabs from a isolated camp in the wilderness of Afghanastan flew two planes into the twin towers that we had been attacked by Afghanastan. Where we? Was it Afghanastan? Or was it just a few Arabs with a small camp in the middle of nowhere that attacked us? Yes they had ties to one afghan province tribal leader, but that would be like David Koresh having ties with the county officials of Waco Texas. Koresh had no ties at all with the American government but had set up a camp in the middle of nowhere. Alkaida had no ties to the Afghan government or the Taliban pope, shaw or what ever they call him. That’s where Bush led our country like a fool. He blamed the whole of Afghanastan for the crime of a few. Bush associated all Muslums with Alkaida, and foolish schock and awed all of Afghanstan, killing the innocent as Alkaida escaped to another safe have in Pakistan. The Taliban we’re caught in the middle, as our bombers, schock and awed all of Afghanastan, killing anyone that moved. Then Bush sends an army, a very large army to storm troop every village in Afghanastan, burning down churches, killing women and children. At the same time Alkaida a thousand miles from the bombs packs up and leaves to Pakistan, leaving our troops wontedly killing the innocent, as Bush & Cheney chant in the back ground the evil of the Afghani’s. The Taliban are fighting our troops very visiouyly without mercy, I agree, but what would we do if the same type of unwarrented attack happened to us. I say Iraq & Aghanastan are false wars, war’s that should never have happened. Bush led our young teen troops as storm troopers wantonly killing everyone but Alkaida, inflaming the innocent killed to fight us in defense of their homeland and way of life, as Alkaida set’s in a safe Pakistan location laughing and cheering as we prove their point. I don’t know if Bush should be arrested for being a fool, but when he and Cheney added torture to the mix the charges started. Alkaida has used Bush for their recruitment. What a mess we’re in. Thanks, Bush, Cheney and the rest of the Corporate American Legislative Puppets. You’ve endanger all of us, threw away 2 trillion dollars and shamed our flag with torture. Obama might be able to untangle this web of foolishness if the fools in the background stop being so obstinate. Bush, Cheney and Palin still, today brag of their torture and idiotic invasions as being good and their setting back in congress doing everyting in their power to make Obama and the Majority Party fail. How does Obama restore America’s honor and untangling the twine of foolishness that was left to him, at the same time trying to capture the dogs that bit us hiding who knows where? It’s time for a new strategy. Pull our armies out but leave a special forces base, to clandestinely pinpoint any camp or leader, then send a drone, sniper, assassian, seals, green berets, CIA special unit or stealth air to destroy each terrorist, one at a time, at our time, until they’re only a memory as the rest of the world see‘s us hunting down the dogs that bit us on 911 rather than storm troopers wantonly destroying two innocent country‘s to 911.

    This is one of the most simple yet best explainations of the real situation at hand. Those Talibums are just pant-waists hiding behind religion to further their own personal selfish goals. There are probably at least 72 demons awaiting them on the other side waiting to decapitate their souls for what they have been doing. And never mind them being in the Stonge Age, we ought to nuke that whole Afghanistan/Pakistan mountaious area once and for all, as it seems they only understand one way to negotiate for what they want – death. We the civilized need to educate the ignorant that killing everyone around you to get anything you want is not normal. They all act like little kids who can't get their way and living a temper-tantrum life.

      Oh how little you know, Phil. First off the Taliban were created by the C.I.A. in the late seventies, schooled on American textbook.
      Our foreign policy works as follows: support dictators and warlords around the world, then at the drop of a hat claim them to be terrorists–after creating or funding said group. It's absurd.
      And on the nuclear bomb thing, that's a horribly ignorant thing to say. Third world countries do NOT need us to help them–our version of help is quasi-subjugation through neocolonial debt–Afghanistan owes us money through the arms deals we've made with them–this is the American export guns and arms.
      I feel that imperialism is wrong and people like you think we are better than people in other countries–we're not.
      We should be focusing on an American economy that isn't reliant on Chinese goods and arms and weapons exports.
      Nothing is made in America anymore except guns, I feel this is wrong, and so are you.

    Any reporter that physically went to the area where this is said to have occurred would have been told exactly point by point what each of those corrupt Afghanistan Police were charged with and found guilty of. Given the depth of corruption in the Karzai Clan, it is revealing that not a single mention of what these Afghanistan Police members were accused of is mentioned. Obviously, the point of the article was to slant the news reader to simply conclude the Taliban were able to just randomly grab these 6 Afghanistan Police, more likely the villagers were greatly victimized by these 6 Afghanistan Police and the Taliban fighters came and dealt with those crimes in a swift, sudden fashion.

    This is the truth:

    (John 14:6)

    Every human has a "sin" nature. We are all capable of it. That is the whole reason for Jesus Christ our Lord. We cannot save ourselves, we need help to love one another and forgive one another.

    What will bring "peace" of all mankind? Do you see a united world somehow, someway? Jesus told us what is going to happen (please see Matthew 24 in the Bible). The Gospel of Christ will be preached to all the world... and then the end will come. That is the truth. There will be wars and rumours of wars..always and always will be..just as He said.

      Seems like the only real way to preserve the human species would be to eliminate the sicko-Talibans and Al Quedas for living the sickening ways they do. Eliminate the barbarians with tools of modern methods of destruction. Seems to be the only language they understand. Once eliminated, the intelligent who survive know the ways and value of living together peacefully among the rest of the human species who can appreciate the fact that we are all only here once on this Earth. God wouldn't necessarily condone the use of modern day use of nuclear tools as a means to deter the barbaric killing (i.e, beheadings, use of wome and children as sacrificial lambs in conducting suicide explosions, etc) but if it helps to acheive overall peace i the long-term...maybe so be it. This rather simplistic thinking but it comes from having lived to see way too much of hate and discontent in the world. Or maybe God is just watching, shaking his head, and watching mankind live a slow and very painful self-extinction. This is all so sad.

    There are less than 100 al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan. The goal of al-Qaeda is to keep us invading places like Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, etc. so that we wear ourselves out financially. We need to leave Iraq and Afghanistan, which will never be true U.S. allies and decide that if any country harbors anti-American terrorists in the future, we will simply reduce their largest city to rubble. Cheaper and surelty effective.

    Wow... I thought Islam was a religion of Peace. Thats what Im told. But if it is.. Why do its followers keep killing people. I know Christians kill people. But you would think a religion that advocates peace would, I dont know, tell its people not to kill each other or others. Why isn't passive resistance used? It worked for Ghandi. It worked for MLK. ONe reason the us stays in Iraq and Afghanistan is the fear of a descent into Chaos. If passive resistance were used instead of murder, this wouldnt be a problem. And if you say the us is there for money (which would be insane considering the cost of occupation) Then this would be more apparant as they wouldnt be able to use the fear of extreamists taking over as an excuse. For the record, I myself and a pacifist and I believe that many texts of various religions support this view on life even if those religions leaders dont.

    Well that sure takes the steam out of reconcilliation with the Taliban and the Afgan government. Guess we need to take another look at the old neutron bomb idea. A cloud of evil has taken command of their minds. This is not Islam and anyone who says so is a fool. This is not tradition or morallity or anything like that. This is the act of madmen. These creatures are no better than those who ran the ovens in the camps for Adolph Hitler. I regret that the justice they will get will be less brutal, but they must be stopped.

    This event shown lawlessness, brutal and unhumanbeing activity of Taliban. Taliban always try to threat innocent people like that. Taliban has no brain, thinking very low standard and we all people around the world stand together against the Taliban.

      For the same reason all the other "religions" are still here - because the world hasn't killed quite enough in the name of their purely fictional 'god'.

    These animals are pathetic, it took 200 to 300 to fight and kill 6, what a well trained bunch they are. I would fire the chief of police at the station that was requested to help for which they did not come. I ask everyone this question, How does 300 armed Men travel all over the place without being seen or were seen and nobody did squat. I would have liked to see 3 or 4 Apaches or 2 or 3 Drones catch these Ba*********ds and kill them all. Afganistan needs to get their stuff together and start doing their jobs or we should leave that poophole and tell them that if we are ever attacked again you will receive that Tomahawk (N) enima.

      Well, I don't know the specifics, I have heard that the Afghan police are the consistantly corrupt. They probably were shaking down the local district folks, and they decided enough was enough. There are alot of details missing from the story that we will never know. If these happened to be Islamist extremist Taliban, who use use brass knuckles to beat their women, they would have killed the tribal elders, teachers, and governer...which they apparently did not.

        Sir
        The ANP are not all Corrupt. To me is the sad part is that they fought for 2 hours when the Hungrian base Pol i Komri is about 45min away at most why didn't the Hungrians roll to help them? Oh when I was The J2 NCOIC of ARSIC-N 2008 the police of Baghlan Province were considered not to bad. Some very good guys were mentoring them.

        Aside from the disturbing details in the article itself, what is also very troublesome is how completely silent the Arab Muslim world is when atrocities like these occur to fellow Muslims. If Israel beheaded a barbie doll, we would have probably seen a new facebook page with 100,000 members demanding Israel be charged with a war crime, and we would seen tens of thousands of people marching in the streets of every major middle eastern capital, burning flags, and chanting "death to Israel". All we hear when Muslims hurt or kill Muslims is...(crickets). So very sad!

      This is justice. No, this is barbaric and is something that a civilized people would not imagine taking place. You see this in the middle ages or even in 17th century europe, but is this how far they have come? Oh yeah, they still throw stones at women untill they are dead. I see true evil in this clan of people, from Saddam Hussien to Osama Bin Laden and everyone in between these rich oil sultans are dripping in oil,blood, and evil.
