Kabul battle ends after 24 hours of unceasing fighting; more than 220 NATO-puppet forces killed, many more injured
KABUL, Apr. 16 - The operation, which unleashed yesterday in Kabul, Logar, Nangarhar and Paktia provinces with martyr attacks and onslaughts on embassies, ISAF main headquarter, the parliament, and other military and government building ended at about 1:00 p.m. after a fighting of 24 hours and was one of the most rigorous and lethal one marking the start of spring offensive.
In the heart of Kabul city, a team of four martyr attackers, Mula Iqbal, and Anas coming from Logar, Hafiz Ismatullah resident of Ghazni, and Hanif from Paktia provinces, headed Mulana Iqbal took up positions close to the Parliament house.
A second six-Martyrdom seeking team including Qari Abd-ur-Rahman coming from Wardag, Engineer Salman and Mula Shahabuddin from Paktia, Ibrahim from Nangarhar, Idrees from Balkh, and Khatab from Ghazni province, headed by Qari Abdurrahman took poison in Shirpur area of Kabul city, whereas a third team of three martyr attackers poisoned in Poli Charkhi were Mula Muzami resident of Zabul, Hafiz Talha from Kunduz, and Zain-ul-Abuddin from Paktia province. Qari Abdurrahman headed this team. The group of 13 martyr attackers of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, almost all at the same time, targeted the so-called ISAF main headquarter, embassies, Parliament house, Presidential Palace, Dar-ul-Aman palace, and other important military and government buildings.
After about 24 hours of extremely lethal fighting with successful onslaughts on these targets involving martyrdom attacks, remote-controlled bomb attacks, direct shooting attacks and other hand grenades attacks killed as many as 93 enemies including US-NATO and their allied troops, local police and soldiers of puppet army, and other foreign diplomats in addition to wounding hundreds of them.
A group of 8 martyrdom-seeking Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate consisting of Muhammad Omar, Amir Hamzah, Zarar Ahmad, Khalil, Muhamood, Abid and Ma’az, Mirwais coming from Khost, Logar, Helmand, Zabul, Kunduz, Kandahar and Wardag province of Afghanistan rocked Jalalabad city.
Muhammad Omar, heading the team of five martyr attackers, and Amir Hamzah of Khost, carried a car bomb attack on PRT base, while Ma’az of Khost, heading the team of three, hit Jalalabad Airfield.
After a fighting of four hours and martyrdom attacks hitting PRT and airfield, the 13 combatants of Islamic Emirate managed to take out more than 35 US-NATO invaders and their puppets and wounded several dozens, as well as killing at least 27 US-NATO invaders and their puppets in Jalalabad Airfield and hurting many more.
A team of three martyrdom-seeking Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate, headed by Hammad from Ghazni, and other two Tahir of Nangarhar along with Qari Saif-ur-Rahman of Khost province fought the puppets and conducted a remote-controlled car bomb attack, killing some 30 security forces of the puppets and wounding countless.
According to an eyewitness to the scene, more than 30 puppets including high-ranking officers, most of whom succumbing to injuries died in the battlefield were transferred to a heavily-guarded part of the civilian hospital in Gardez city, the capital of Paktia province.
In another report from Paktia province, a US helicopter bombed the house of a puppet officer, flattening his house and injuring a woman.
In Logar, a team of 6 martyr attackers of Islamic Emirate, headed by Mula Dilawar from Khost, targeted the department of mining and industry, which was the main target, while Mual Ayub from Farah, heading a group of three targeted the US invaders’ PRT base which was the main target of the group.
According to the report form Logar province, the group of nine martyrdom-seeking Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate killed 29 including 6 American invaders, the remaining killed in the Logar battle were soldiers and police of puppets.
The large-scale operation which simultaneously unleashed at the four provinces of Afghanistan continuing for about 42 nonstop hours, joined by only 30 martyrdom-seeking Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate killed as many as 220 puppets, US-NATO invaders and their allies and wounded numerous of the enemy soldiers.
The funniest thing is the enemy’s blatant lies that brazenly denied their fatalities, as always, by throwing dust in the eyes of the people worldwide and world media, which is typical of the US-NATO invaders. So it may not come as a surprise. The American occupation enemy and its allies are the most famous for undermining their fatalities and exaggerating ours, no doubt they are very good at international lies. However, the Islamic Emirates ask the world and mainstream media to go and just check only the hospitals in these four provinces, the truth, then, will speak for itself.
Al Qaeda vows revenge for killing of al-Awlaki
'US Plans Huge Military Spending In Iraq' The United States is set to spend more than USD 6 billion in Iraq in 2012, despite Washington’s plans to withdraw American troops from the war-ravaged country by the end of 2011. Most of the allocated budget is going to be spent on military purposes, said US Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey in a Monday. “The direct budget, operating and assistance (to Iraq), was USD 6.2 billion,” Jeffrey said. He said there is also “a little less than $300 million that goes to refugee and displaced person programs. The US troops are mandated to leave Iraq by the end of 2011. The latest report on the US military spending in Iraq comes despite the US administration’s cuts in public spending such as Medicare to compensate for the budget deficit. The US has reportedly spent over USD 1 trillion on its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. Polls show, however, that Americans support cuts in US military spending.
What does ‘the war on terror’ mean, according to America?Publication time: 6 November 2011, 21:54
The extraordinary “power”, the real permissiveness of the US government has, once again, been manifested in the assassination of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, son of the Islamic preacher Sheikh Anwar al- Awlaki (martyr, Insha’Allah,). It occurred last month (October 2011), reports the MWC.
For a time, media outlets had no information about the age of the killed Abdulrahman. Recently it became known that he was only 16 years old.
According to the MWC, there are several things that are especially fascinating about the US government’s assassination of this teenager Abdulrahman, who apparently traveled to Yemen to meet with his father.
First, the US government, according to their same laws, killed a minor.
Second, no one except the killers knows why the boy was killed.
Third, the people who planned and carried out the assassination - from president Obama, to the Pentagon, to the CIA - remain silent on this issue.
Fourth, no one can force them to explain why they killed the boy, who, incidentally, was a US citizen - just like his father, MWC News notes.
The assassination of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki reveals in stark clarity where the U.S. government’s imperialist foreign policy and resulting war on terrorism have brought us as nation and as a people. We now live in a country in which the president and his military and paramilitary forces now wield the omnipotent authority to assassinate anyone they want, anywhere in the world, with impunity and without having to provide an explanation to anyone”, says MWC News.
In a news story on the assassination of the boy, Time magazine cites a young friend of Abdulrahman asking, “Who can’t America kill?”
Indeed! The fact, as discomforting as it might be, is that the president, the military, and the CIA can now kill anyone they want for whatever reason they want, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. The assassination of 16-year-old Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, according to the MWC, confirms the extent of this extraordinary post-9/11 power now wielded by the US national-security state.
Moreover, according to MWC, in fact none of the US have never been made clear the precise reasons for the assassination of the boy’s father, Anwar al-Awlaki.
Some people said that he was a member of al-Qaeda, some says that he “betrayed his country”. And some said that he urged Muslims to resist by force the US imperialist policies.
Neither President Obama, nor the Pentagon, nor the CIA have ever provided an explanation for the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, indicates MWC.
"And it confirms once again, that we now live in a country where government officials can assassinate anyone they want, foreigners and Americans alike, with impunity", said MWC.
Why assassinate the 16-year old boy, asks MWC. Was he supposedly doing what his father was doing? Was he allegedly exhorting Muslims to resist US imperialism with force? Was he allegedly conspiring to commit any attacks himself? Was he supposed to be a member of al-Qaeda?
The only people who know are President Obama, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the CIA and, again, they’re not talking and, under the “war on terrorism”, are apparently not required to talk.
According to that Time magazine article, some unidentified US official is quoted as saying that Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was “in the wrong place at the wrong time”, he says, is a kind of “side effect”, “collateral damage” in the attacks on a Mujahid of al-Qaeda, who was killed as part of the same strike.
One problem, of course, points out MWC, is that that information might well be false, especially since it’s not under oath and comes from an unidentified official. Thus, the information is worthless insofar as understanding why the assassins ended the child’s life.
Even if the claim was true, an obvious question arises: Did the assassins know that 16-year-old Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was present and, therefore, would likely be killed in the attack?
"Perhaps I should mention that Abdulrahman al-Awlaki wasn’t the only teenager assassinated in the attack. Also assassinated were his teenage cousin and six other people with whom he was having dinner. Were they also alleged to have been terrorists? Again, we just don’t know. The president, the Pentagon, and the CIA just aren’t talking and apparently don’t have to", the article says.
Did the US government assassinate Abdulrahman al-Awlaki because he was the son of an alleged al-Qaeda member, asks MWC. Did they assassinate him to send a “message” to other Mujahideen - that this is what will happen to your children (or other relatives) if you oppose the US Empire? Did they assassinate him to preclude the possibility of his growing up with a thirst for vengeance and retaliation arising out of the assassination of his father?
"I think the idea is that while the government is disappearing people from life through assassination, we, the citizenry, are expected to not dwell on such things and instead to simply continue going about our daily lives with the understanding that the government is doing what is necessary to keep us safe (which, obviously, is complicity in the crimes of the US government - KC)", indicates the MWC.
But be that as it may, we can say one thing, concludes the MWC: the killing 16-year-old, US citizen, Abdur-Rahman al-Avlyaki once again demonstrates that the US is a country whose government has unlimited power to kill the whomever it wishes: an adult or a minor, a foreigner or an American, without bearing any responsibility.

After returning home from Iraq Peter Van Buren wrote a book which has provoked the ire of the State Department.(85.5Mb)embed video
A US audit has confirmed that billions of dollars delivered to the Iraqi authorities in 2003 for reconstruction projects have gone missing. It seems Washington has wasted cash earmarked to build democracy in the country.
State Department Foreign Service Officer Peter Van Buren headed an Iraqi reconstruction team a few years ago. After returning home he wrote a book which has, he says, provoked the ire of the State Department, which now wants him fired. In his view, the State Department is a lot like the mafia.
“You don’t talk about the family outside the family, and the State Department was bothered by the fact that I told the true story of what happened in Iraq, which contradicts what they’ve been putting out through the media for almost eight years now,” he explained.
He told RT that in around 2007, a number of State Department officials were sent to Iraq with a large amount of cash to spend on rebuilding the country and hopefully creating a new ally for America. Instead, what was delivered were short-term efforts which had no real direction and which were consequently doomed to fail.
“Some of my teammates tried to talk me into spending $25,000 to buy a few sheep to give away to a few widows, and that was going to be our contribution to democracy. You could buy a Toyota for what we were going to spend on sheep,” he recollected.
According to Van Buren, America entered the Iraqi war on the pretext of hunting down weapons of mass destruction.
“As a result, Americans killed over 100,000 Iraqi citizens; some of them were killed directly by the US, some in sectarian violence that the US set loose. Iraq today is not a place that represents the investment of US $63 billion in reconstruction funds. The US failed in its efforts to bring freedom to Iraq,” he stated.
