Taliban commanders among insurgents arrested

Six insurgents, among them two Taliban commanders, have been captured in eastern Afghanistan, the military said Friday.

A man named Besmullah was also captured, said a statement from NATO's International Security Assistance Force. He served as a deputy to the former Taliban spokesman, Abdul Hay Motmaen, when the Taliban ruled Afghanistan.

International forces in Afghanistan have been aggressively pursuing insurgents and have captured several senior leaders in recent months.

The arrests Thursday in Ghazni came a day after the military said it had captured several insurgents who were planning to attack an international aid conference that took place this week in Kabul. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among those who attended.

— Journalist Matiullah Mati contributed to this report.

    That is what I was mentioning, Hindus were in Afghan, Pakistan and around central Asia long before these Islam converts driven us out. Afghan means (Ashva gana -land of horse, Sanskrit Ashva means horse eq old Parsi Asp). The Amudarya was named Oxus river during Alexander invasion(Vedic Chakshu). The current Pakistan was Sapta-sindhu land of sever rivers in Vedas. Now we are left with moth eaten Punjab (Skt Punj = five, aap=water or river). They now want Kashmir in the name of religion and somehow control India, probably bring under Islamic caliphate.

    So do Jews, old practicing religion and once occupied all those land and eventually driven out or moved to greener pastures. Now they are under seize under Islamic agenda. Their only agenda seems to be "what is mine is mine and what is yours is negotiable (or mine as preached by extremist). The similarity of Pakistan and Israel is both were created in the name of religion. The similarity ends there, Pak ISI and Army has broader agenda of making strategic depth in Afghan and somehow control India. The are exporting their jihadist ideology across globe. Where as Israel are trying hard to defend their country probably like India.

    Jews were part of the earlier Palestine, they started settling at their ancestral place and secured a country. Pakistan was carved out of India, all the 24% Hindus were either driven or worse converted, this did not happen in Israel. If you want to know a country ask the minority, unfortunately only 2% are left terrified in Pakistan, worse they are persecuted across all of Islamic country. US is trying to bring sense to the crazy world of extreme jihadist whose epicenter is Pakistan. The current Pak is politically close to middle east in their foreign policy. They have aligned their religion and outlook like a satellite of Arabs more closer to Palestine, Yemen than India Afghanistan.

    I'm a gambling man and I'm putting my money on our, Special unit force is going to torcher these men unmercifully. That's right it's only inhanced interrogation. Can our American Police use ihnanced iterrogation against us? What ever happen to name rank and serial number, and after that your just imprisoned with no more interrogation. Geneva Convention, 1945, Nazi's tortured and we're tried and sentenced severly. If American G.I.s canuse advance interrogation away from home they can come back to their jobs as our police and use inhanced iterrogation upon you or I. It's a very dangerous path Gerorge Bush, Dick Cheney and Sahrah Palin have led us on. I've dealt with these young men coming home from Bush's Nam's. Their crazed cops, hung up on interrogation, pat downs and illegal search's. What's happening to our freedom? What has Bush, Cheny and Palin done to our flag, country and honor? Remember that one gruff looking over weight rough mean looking Alkaida leader they capture a couple of years ago. They made that man inform on his brothers. Imagine what they had to do to get him to speak. Enhanced interrogation, ja, that's what the Gestapo said to the judge at their war crimes trial. We'll I guess it doesn't matter. Bush and Cheney are rich and have many powerful friends, from the oil baron's of Texas to the 9 seats of our Supreme Court. I publically call for the arrest and trial of George Bush and Dick Cheney for war crimes. If they we're tried by the world court are most hated enemy would see America as the land of justice. The land where no man is above the law, because of his rank, statue, the money he has or who he knows. I want to bring every terrorist to trial, but as a true Ameriican I beleive even our enemy deserves justice.

The Alla-Mullah-Army nexus will be eventually broken and that will fix issues in Afghan and tentacles of terror inspired jihad around the world. Uganda already convened Africa union meeting and declared the Pak-Arab Al-Shabab members to leave Africa. What a humiliation, they can only go one way ie upward, we need more drones to haunt them.

        Islam is a peaceful religion: really? Immediate jihad is waged if you doubt it.
        Muhammad is a messenger of God? Satanic fatwa is awarded if you doubt it.
        Islam respect women? We whip them if they doubt it.
        Islam respect other religions? We demolish their temples and deities. There is no deity but allah.
        Islam respect followers of other religions? We kill them they are infidels.
        Muslims are loyal to the country where they live in? We break the country if we are large enough in number. Sometimes we send our sons to liberate our brothers and sometimes invite foreign muslim brothers to liberate us.
        Muslims are suppressed in non-muslim countries? We don't suppress non-muslims, we have cleansed them long ago.
        Muslims don't get jobs? We don't get jobs even we are so learned, even when we are Hafiz (memorized kooran by heart). Even when our children are so intelligent, we keep brainwashing them since their births.
        Muslims integrate with locals? What is the problem if we wear hanging Pyjamas even in Alaska (muslims in arabia were used to wear pyjamas enough above the ankle in order to avoid tearing at the bottom due to friction with the sand) .
        Muslims are hated by others? We don't hate non-muslims, allah hates them.
        Kooran is the words of God? Who dares to doubt it, even if it is full of satanic verses. We have traded our brains with solidarity.
        So many muslims are killed worldwide daily in militant activities? Who cares, we are the fastest growing religion. We produce 20 children per woman; fodder for the canons.
        Muslims are modern and civilized people? Thank to allah, who has given us oil and sharia laws. Having oil we don't need to use our brains (if there is any) to get money for modernization. And we have provided eternity to our civilization after anchoring it with Sharia.
        Muslims retaliate when they are oppressed? Who says, muslims start a conflict, we have right to hurt others, non-muslims are already guilty of not believing in muhammad.
        World evaluates you by your behavior, not by your name. Please correct your behavior first and be civilized so that world does not need to civilize you with bamboo sticks. It's high time to bring muhammad and islam to justice. Also, in view of the latest developments, it seems that muslims world wide are persona non Grata.

    Hello all: my take is that the powers that be can kill and capture all the taliban they can but the battle will always go on.
    Thats the way it has been for thousands of years and everybody knows it.
    The goal now(the endgame for the us) and in the future for the US is to train up the afgan police and army to the best level possible and in sufficient numbers and hand it over to them and thats it.
    If possible the us would keep a smaller force of special ops and predator drone base or whatever thats it to keep tabs on terrorist training efforts should that arise.
    Bottom line is bring the troops home and concentrate on whats good for america for once!

    Somewhere in the last couple years, someone decided that listing everyone above the equivalent of buck private as a "captured/killed leader" is a good idea. We've killed more Taliban commanders than we have colonels or higher in the U.S. Military! I guess it goes along with every insurgent action being: "al-Qaeda linked," "al-Qaeda related," "al-Qaeda inspired," or, my favorite, "having the hallmarks of al-Qaeda." Yet the U.S. military tells us there are less than 100 al-Qaeda members in all of Afghanistan and even fewer in Iraq right now!

    China is keen to extend its influence in Afghanistan for its business needs to counter USA via business with Iran. Thanks to intelligence about minerals in Afghanistan. China will now focus on neighbourhoods instead of bringing the ores from Australia. No wonder they want to build a rail road that encroaches no mans house, under incompetent Indian administration thru Kashmir. Chinese inteligence people are very active in Afghanistan and Pakistan, currently.

    Riza: Why ask USA to drop the nuke bombs? Just drop few conventional missiles at the nuclear warehouses. That would take care of evil stockpile. Some of these taliban commanders must be on ISI payrolls.

    DC: More US aid is required for Pakistanis to counter the talibans and mehmans in afghanistan. F-18s, nuclear deal with pakistani, better than India will do. After that, few talibans will be surrendered to CIA for interogation.

        Larry, obviously some people attach very little value on the lives of our Soldiers. i is also obvious that few people understand the role of India/Pakistan/Bangledesh. Great Britain blew the whole thing breaking up India in the first place. Even today more Muslims live peacefully in India than in Pakistan. Yet if a Hindu if found in Pakistan he will be "converted" to Islam, either peacefully or in death. Islam as a whole is a peaceful religion. The Taliban and others like them are not true Muslims, they are fanatic renegades and do not follow the Koran but make it up as they go along and are as wrong about Islam as some right wing fanatic Christian Fundamentalists and Hindu extremists. What is attributed to a holy war is nothing but the work of Satan.

      Written by a housewife, to her daily newspaper. This is one ticked off lady.

      'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York Sept 11/2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

      Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day in London , and in downtown Manhattan , and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

      Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

      And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.

      I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11 and 7/7.

      I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan

      I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

      I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

      I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

      I'll care when the British media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

      In the meantime, when I hear a story about a British soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

      I don't care.

      When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take this to the bank:

      I don't care.

      When I hear that a prisoner – who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and 'fed special food' that is paid for by my taxes – is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts:

      I don't care.

      And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, believe me!! you guessed it ......

      I don't care!!

      If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behaviour!

      If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country! And may I add:

      'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. Our soldiers don't have that problem.'

      I have another quote that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you forward all this.

      Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

      1. Jesus Christ

      2. The British Soldier.

      3. The Canadian Soldier.

      4. The US Soldier, and

      5. The Australian Soldier

      One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

      YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ABOUT ALL OF THEM.

      AMEN!

      GIVE THIS LADY A STANDING OVATION.
      SHE HAS INDEED TICKED ALL THE BOXES

      We haven't really been fighting there that long... Bush took most of the troops out of there to start the Iraq War!!! Now Obama is trying to finish both wars so that they can take care of themselves!!!
