Suicide attack, failed strike on base

Violence erupted in Afghanistan on Friday, when a suicide bomber killed a civilian in the north and troops repelled an attack on a base in the east, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said.

A blast near an ISAF convoy in Balkh province in the north heavily
damaged a civilian bus traveling behind the convoy. Along with the one dead, 15 were wounded.

Warfare has long plagued eastern and southern Afghanistan, but attacks
have risen in the north in recent months.

"Despite their guidance to avoid harming civilians, the Taliban continue
to completely disregard innocent civilian lives with their indiscriminate
tactics. Their egregious acts go against religious and normal codes of
conduct," said U.S. Army Col. Rafael Torres, an ISAF spokesman.

In the east, a failed attack on Forward Operating Base Gardez in Paktiya
province led to the deaths five insurgents and the capture of another.

A vehicle followed by four suicide-vest-wearing insurgents tried to
breach a fortified part of the base.

Troops destroyed the vehicle, disrupted the attack, and killed attackers
trying to flee. Coalition forces were attempting to pursue about 20 other of
the attackers.

  1. TRUTH

    IDIOT to HUMAN dialogue DICTIONARY. For those of you who are new to this board, here is a handy reference to what he is saying. 

    He hides behind lies and made up words to preach his hate every day on this forum because there is no moderator. This is a complete list of his entire knowledge and vocabulary, quite pathetic and laughable as it is...

    "360" means his version of taliban islam, the enemy of real islam. The goal is to serve demon masters as slaves by corrupting yourself with lies and evil deeds every waking moment, but you have to be arrogant about your chosen life and insult everyone. He is here to recruit by convincing readers that this is better than 180 through endless insults and hate preaching. 

    "180" means Truth and all good in the world, including the idea of God.

    "hindu" means anyone who is not a slave in 360.

    "pot head man gods" are the fit and tanned men of California with big muscles, nice cars and cute girlfriends. He is very jealous of this but also attracted, a strange mix which makes him rage.

    "hypocracy" means breathing to him.

    "prosthelytizing" is haram and means writing on CNN unless it is in praise of 360.  See also hypocracy.

    "haram" means forbidden, such as truth and working.  Crime is not haram but encouraged.

    "cow mama dung" means his mother's cooking and also the gospel of any belief system other than 360, both of which he hates.

    "filthy" means he is having those man-donkey love thoughts again.

    Remember these are not my views, these are just notes based on having read way too many of his deranged posts on these boards. He pretends like ending this war is what he wants, it is just another lie, he wants the destruction of everyone who does not convert to 360. THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!

    "cow mama dung" means when you can't steal eat what you can find in the garbage (if the people in the next village are rich enough to throw out scraps and bones) or whatever you can find in the fields, well he thinks its better than working anyway because working is against 360.

    "filthy" means he is having those man-donkey love thoughts again.
