US drone goes down in Afghanistan
Wed Aug 3, 2011 2:14PM GMT

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) belonging to US-led forces has crashed in Afghanistan's troubled eastern province of Nangarhar.


The US drone crashed in the southern suburbs of the Afghan city of Jalalabad in Nangarhar Province on Wednesday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

NATO's media office in eastern Afghanistan has blamed the incident on technical failure.

However, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed the militant group has shot down the aircraft.

The Taliban militants claim they have shot down several aircraft and NATO choppers in different parts of Afghanistan over the past few months.

The militants have proven resilient despite the presence of around 150,000 US-led forces in Afghanistan. They have steadily stepped up their attacks on the US-led forces, inflicting on them heavy casualties and damage.

Since the start of the non-UN-sanctioned US drone operations in Afghanistan, the attacks have claimed many civilian lives both in Afghanistan and in Pakistan's border regions.

Four US-led forces killed in Afghanistan

Thu Aug 4, 2011 7:48AM GMT


The US-led military alliance says four American soldiers have been killed amid increasing attacks by militants against foreign forces in Afghanistan.


The US-led forces lost their lives in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, NATO announced.

In another incident on the same day, a NATO soldier was killed when a man dressed as an Afghan policeman opened fire on him.

On Wednesday two NATO soldiers were killed in a roadside bombing in southern Afghanistan and one other lost his life in a noncombat-related incident in the east of the country.

The latest casualties bring to at least 345 the number of US-led troops killed in Afghanistan this year alone.

According to official figures, more than 2,617 US-led soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the Asian country in 2001.

The security situation remains fragile in Afghanistan despite the presence of nearly 150,000 US-led foreign forces in the country.

The increasing number of troop casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the US and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the Afghan war.

REALIST:
For every soldier killed in either Iraq or Afghanistan, many many times that amount are fatally injured and need help and support for the rest of their lives with taxpayers financing it!! The warmongers never report the injured casualties!! The joy of murderous warmongering!!

When a nation is at war there sure to have casualties. The Americans together with their Nato Thugs should leave the land of the Muslims because the longer they stay the more numbers of casualties inflicted on them. Muslims can fight forever!
