KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - An Afghan teenager killed an American soldier in eastern Afghanistan by stabbing him in the neck while he played with a group of local children, officials said Monday.

The killing comes as the monthly U.S. death toll rose sharply in March to 14 with the start of the spring fighting season when the Taliban and other insurgents take advantage of improved weather to step up attacks.

Sgt. Michael Cable, 26, was guarding Afghan and U.S. officials meeting in a province near the border with Pakistan when the stabbing occurred last Wednesday, two senior U.S. officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

..can't trust even the youngest brainwashed children!

They are taught to hate & to kill the infidels at home, in school and in the street.

There is no value added from its inhabitants; there is no value added from its religion or its history, culture or religion. There is no value added by its physical landscape other than as a buffer for some other country. And, for that, that country needing a ‘buffer’ does not need it to be functionally viable for what some people call Afghani humans. Nuke it. It would still serve the same purpose, just without all the headaches.

The official said the attacker was thought to be about 16 years old, but the age couldn't be verified.

Cut the little sh*t in half and count the rings.

War is a terrible thing. If we lived in a country that had been successively invaded time and time again over centuries maybe we would teach our children to kill with no mercy. Then again maybe we wouldn't.

America's democracy is based on a people being moral. You cannot “democratize” a people with no moral foundation. The collapse of our society at home is a perfect example of why democracy is not the answer, morality is. When secularism removed God's foundation of morality from their idol democratic “freedom”, the house collapsed.

If we cannot maintain a civil society without morality here in America, why do we think that we can create a civil society in the midst of a death cult with nothing but blood and treasure? Is it really all that important of a experiment to prove humanism, does our own collapse not provide enough example for those who refuse to see?

We are spread too thin, and our best and brightest are overseas. Fools and wicked men rule us, while the immoral lecture us on our morality. Our nation chose Mans rule over God's rule, and now a man who spends millions of dollars to play golf, lectures us on paying our fair share, while his wife, Mz wide load lectures us on eating our peas.

And Nancy Pelosi, need I say more!

I desire change in America, BACK to a faith in God, over a faith in the freedom to ignore Him. Because it is beyond obvious that we are on the wrong road, caught up in a slow motion train wreck.

Why are we still there?
Our President already announced surrender.
Our Government is not allowing our soldiers to fight as if they (Government) actually wants to win a war.
So why keep our people there just to be killed?

I had to edit what I was going to say here, but it involved ‘Allah sort them out’, and I’m glad I got out of the Marines before I had to go over there.

What again is the mission there? If it’s to get those knuckledraggers to like us, it’s failed miserably.

Not one of those creatures can be trusted. Not a single one.
