Apparent terrorist attack on 9/11 anniversary at U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan

Apparent terrorist attack on 9/11 anniversary at U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan SEPTEMBER 11, 2019 BY BARENAKEDISLAM

Rocket explodes inside US Embassy compound in Afghanistan shortly after midnight on 9/11 anniversary. No injuries reported, thank God.

Daily Mail A rocket exploded at the US Embassy in Afghanistan just minutes into Wednesday, the anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States, but officials at the compound declared all-clear about an hour later and reported no injuries.

A plume of smoke rose over central Kabul shortly after midnight and sirens could be heard. Inside the embassy, employees heard this message over the loudspeaker: ‘An explosion caused by a rocket has occurred on compound.’

There was no immediate comment from Afghan officials. The NATO mission, which is nearby, also said no personnel had been injured.

It was the first major attack in the Afghan capital since President Donald Trump abruptly called off U.S.-Taliban talks over the weekend, on the brink of an apparent deal to end America’s longest war.

The 9/11 anniversary is a sensitive day in Afghanistan’s capital and one on which attacks have occurred. A U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan shortly after the 2001 attack toppled the Taliban, who had harbored Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader and attacks mastermind.

In the nearly 18 years of fighting since then, the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan soared to 100,000 and dropped dramatically after bin Laden was killed in neighboring Pakistan in 2011.

Now about 14,000 U.S. troops remain and Trump has called it ‘ridiculous’ that they are still in Afghanistan after so long and so many billions of dollars spent. It is not clear whether the U.S.-Taliban talks will resume.

It’s that Taliban knack for p.r. when entering into negotiations, nothing says good faith like a few random explosions and massacres.

“Let’s talk, we can bomb some other time.”

The muzzards seem fixated on the 9/11 date.
They had their asses handed to them in 1683 by John Sobieski of Poland. Now, the have this need to wipe their defeat away on the same date. It ain’t gonna happen.

Extreme sarcasm alert:

Are u sure that it wasn’t “some people did something” because of an anti- satanic video/ cartoon.
