Attack kills police chief, 2 others in Kandahar

An attack on police headquarters Friday killed the police chief for the southern Afghan province of Kandahar and two others, the Interior Ministry said.

The police chief, Khan Mohammad Mujahed, and the two others were killed, but authorities knew little beyond that, the ministry said.  Kandahar is the birthplace of the Taliban and has been the scene of fierce fighting between international forces and insurgents.

    Cameron – In Afghanistan there is a civil war. There are not bad guys and good guys, the war is for power. The solution is in negotiations, but the US must stop killing civilians, as even the non-Taliban protested for that.

    Oh really. I did understand your post. I simply disregarded it as it seemed to be composed of ... He was not hired to kill his own Afghan people, but rather to protect them. To say I am ignorant, and to decline to state the state of your own ignorance is like calling yourself a "God" or "Elevated being." In denying this, you are being extremely ignorant.
    He was not a tool of Obama's "hindu" terrorists. He was killed by islamic extremists.

    read this: – this is a little more about his death, and what he did prior to becoming a police cheif

    He (the assn.) shot police chief Khan Mohammad Mujahid with a pistol before detonating a suicide vest.

    Mr Mujahid had survived two previous attempts on his life. The high-profile police chief was a close ally of president Hamid Karzai who condemned the latest violence.

    A former mujahedeen fighter against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980s, Mr Mujahid only took up the job in October."

    Anyways, that is insignificant. He was working to increase security measures. I disagree with the point you make. I also, do not think you are an Afghan. Truthfully, are you yourself an Afghan? The civilians themselves are the real slaves, unfortunately. What, do you think it is wrong to kill the insurgents, but it is okay to kill a police chief? What about when an insurgent walks into a mosque and kills many people, who were living on the same basis as you, as far as anyone can prove. Is that okay, by your pseudo truthful standard?

      "Who gave you the right...." Guess what, it certainly was not YOU! You would deny all of us free speech, personal autonomy and all the other rights guaranteed int the Bill of Rights. You hardly have a lock on ANY kind of communication skills, coherent thought or any other decency, wisdom, logic or leadership skills.

      You are a vulgar troll who uses his bigoted hatred for HINDUS and their world as a metaphor for ignorance and hate. What a guy! Shove your 360 degree twaddle where the sun doesn't shine.

        Mikey – Yacobi has a great culture but you cannot understand for your ignorance (hinduism).

      Really? All rebellion and insurgency is tied to THE TRUTH? Fact? Always? Justify this and I will believe you. These are people with strong opinions, because of what they experience, or have experienced. Please, do justify how insurgents and rebels are "tied" to the truth. Does this mean that everything they DO is justified?

    What are you talking about? This police chief was planning to improve security measures against terroristic forces! Do you prefer an absence of police in your state? Do you prefer that Muslim/Hindu/Whatever terrorists continue to kill the innocents (which they will, no matter the state of the police)?

    In any case, having read your other post, do you believe that the truth is that those who fight for the safety of your fellow adherents (if you are in fact Afghani, which you don't seem to be), deserve what this police chief got? Who do you think you are, some sort of elevated being, to proclaim that he "was not obedient to LA"? What, do you think Obama is the root cause of all of this? Ha. He really didn't have a dn choice. In one post, you made a very simple point – but you shook it with this stupid "hindu/obama/bohemian" stuff. I think that you are either a non-affected Afghani, or not an Afghani at all. Well, if you always believe in "truth 360," what are you?

    You're full of disrespect and ignorance. Maybe I am being somewhat ignorant too, but "I am not ashamed to admit my ignorance," unlike you (hard-headed).

      Sorry, I replied above in a new post. But again, he actually fought for Afghanistan, in the Mujahideen, against the Soviets.
