#3  Fred still has a sharp eye for the babes and an appreciation for beauty. He's not over the hill yet. Joan Leslie's greatest failing was being a Democrat (if one can say this--the times were much different in 1952). "Leslie was a Democrat who supported the campaign of Adlai Stevenson during the 1952 presidential election."

[ToloNews] Afghan forces pushed back an attack by the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
on Hazrat Sultan district in the central province of Samangan on Monday evening, the provincial police said, adding that the festivities continued for many hours and ended shortly after midnight.

A front man for Samangan police, Munir Rahimi, said eight Taliban fighters were killed in the festivities.

He said the Taliban faced resistance by the security forces shortly after they started their attack on the district — which is located along the key northern highway that connects Kabul with Balkh province.

Taliban on Monday night claimed that they captured Hazrat Sultan district.

The group has not commented on their casualties in the festivities.

Afghan troops filmed laying down arms
  • [DailyMail, Where America Gets Its News] The Afghan army is collapsing across the country, with videos posted by the Taliban showing troops laying down their US-made weapons and handing over the keys to their Humvee armoured cars

  • The US left Bagram Airfield last week - its fortress in the country for nearly 20 years - by slipping away in the night without telling the base's new Afghan commander who discovered they had gone the next morning

  • However, General Austin Scott Miller, commander of US and Nato troops in Afghanistan, said he was shocked by how quickly the Afghan National Army had surrendered to the resurgent jihadists

  • 'I don't like leaving friends in need,' he told ABC on Monday. 'We should be concerned. The loss of terrain and the rapidity of that loss of terrain has to be concerning. You look at the security situation, it's not good'

  • More than a thousand Afghan National Army soldiers fled into Tajikistan from the northern province of Badkhshan following clashes with the resurgent jihadists on Sunday

  • Tajikistan said that the Afghans were allowed to enter on the principle of 'good neighbourliness' but called up 20,000 reservists to bolster its border guard and prevent further flooding of the frontier

#1  ...Changing sides as required is an old and honored tradition there - things don't go your way, then you kiss the requisite turbans, maybe hand over a couple of goats, and boom, Muhammad's your uncle. All the new rulers ask is that you behave.

This should have been clear to anyone with the ability to look things up in a library, yet the College of Cardinals - and their idiot civilian masters -that runs the US military has once again proved that they have forgotten nothing and remembered nothing.

Why this general fuckstick doesn't get that is beyond me.

#7  Had a generation and a half to inspire and train, General.

That being said, I believe the US has had about the worst historical political leadership I can come up with at the moment. All that capital, blown by hanging LTs because a rumor a Koran got wet. Playing Mother May I? with the Pakis. Bullshit.

#8  The whole mission was a cock up from the git go. Once bin Laden escaped across the border to Pakistan we should have left that hell hole and all of the people who live there to their own devices. Many of us understood that even then and the comparison to Vietnam was disturbing. How much blood and treasure were wasted and for what? The military/industrial complex got to test some of their new toys and make big bucks in the process. I still harbor the suspicion that opium had a lot to do with it. Now we get all the fentanyl we can do from China and Mexico so we no longer need Afghanistan. Let the Turks, the Chinese and the Russians have it. They deserve it and the Afghans deserve them.

A huge blow to Al-Shabaab as army captures key town in central Somalia
[Garowe] The Somali National Army [SNA] on Tuesday recaptured Ba'adweyn town from al-Shabaab
...... the personification of Somali state failure...
bully boys, over four months after the region was captured by the al-Qaeda linked group, which controls large swathes of rural central and southern Somalia.

Al-Shabaab has been using the strategic town in unleashing terror against innocent civilians, security forces, and top government officials. The town is an important supply route in the country, especially within the Mudug region.

Military officials said the town fell to government forces in the early hours of Tuesday with several surrounding villages also being restored by the military. The SNA troops have been executing operations across the country for months.

"Somali National Army along with Galmudug
...a semiautonomous region in central Somalia, bordering Puntland on the north. Galmudug is not trying to obtain international recognition as a separate nation, but rather considers itself autonomous within the larger Somali federalism, for what that's worth...
regional Darwish forces took over control of Ba’adweyn town and surrounding areas in the early hours of Tuesday, military officials confirmed," state media reported.

Apart from Ba'adweyn, the military has also managed to get hold of several towns in Middle and Lower Jubba, showing its capabilities ahead of the full implementation of the Somali Transition Plan [STP] which will see foreign troops leave Somalia.

Moments after the capture of Ba'adweyn, the SNA troops captured Harardhere and Imaamd villages in Southern Mudug in Galmadug state. During the operation, the Lions of Islam managed to escape from their hideouts.

"Troops from 21st Division of Somali National Army have captured Hareerdhere and Imaamd, al-Shabaab stronghold villages in southern Mudug region. Terrorists had fled before the Army arrived. This comes as SNA took over full control of Ba’adweyn town on Tuesday morning," state media added.

Last week, a senior al-Shabaab commander Mohammed Abdi Suubiye "Toosoow" was among 16 bandidos Lions of Islam killed in a separate operation in southern and central Somalia according to military sources.

He was killed last Saturday after he attempted to resist the army in Darussalam near Adan Yabaal of the Middle Shabelle region, senior military officers told Garowe Online. His death was described as "critical" in the al-Shabaab war.

Iranian head of the intelligence service visited Baghdad yesterday, a source confirms
[SHAFAQ] A reliable political source reported that the head of the intelligence service of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Hussein Taeb, visited the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The source told Shafaq News Agency that Taeb arrived in Baghdad yesterday, Monday, on a secret visit.

He added that Taeb held meetings with the Iraqi factions and discussed with them the recent U.S. attack on al-Hashd al-Shaabi, and met with politicians, to discuss the early Iraqi parliamentary elections.

Yesterday, Monday, Taeb's visit coincided with the bombing of Ain al-Assad base in al-Anbar.

A few days ago, U.S. raids were launched on the sites of Pro-Iranian factions on the Syrian-Iraqi border, "in response to drone attacks launched by these factions on American facilities in Iraq."

Turkish airforces strike in northern Duhok

Fire rages near Duhok village after Turkish bombardment

[Rudaw] A fire has been raging near a Duhok village as a result of Ottoman Turkish bombardment on Tuesday morning, a local official has confirmed to Rudaw.

The vicinity of Upper Hazanke, a Christian village in Chamnke subdistrict, has been on fire since 11am, according to Chamanke mayor Aland Amir, who said firefighters cannot visit the site due to security concerns.

"Fearing bombardment, our teams cannot go to the village in order to identify the losses and control the fire," he told Rudaw.

The village is located five kilometers southwest of Chamanke, near the town of Amedi.

Iraqi commander vows to avenge deaths in US strike
[SHAFAQ] The leader of an Iran-backed Iraqi "militia" has vowed to retaliate against America for the deaths of four of his men in a U.S. Arclight airstrike
along the Iraq-Syria border last month, saying it will be a military operation everyone will talk about.

Abu Alaa al-Walae, commander of Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada, said in an exclusive interview with The News Agency that Dare Not be Named in Baghdad that the electoral victory of Iran’s hard-line judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi as president will strengthen Iran-backed bully boy groups throughout the Middle East for the next four years.

US Embassy, Ain al-Asad base targeted in Iraq as 'militias' up tension
[SHAFAQ] The US Embassy in Baghdad, in the heart of the Iraqi capital's Green Zone, was the intended target of an armed drone the night of July 6. The C-RAM defense system of the embassy was able to bring it down before an attack.

Just hours before, Ain al-Asad base in Anbar province of western Iraq was hit by three rockets. The attack left no casualties.

The drone was launched from a residential area near the airport in Baghdad. This is the first time that militias have used a public place for launching an attack against US sites.

Attack on Erbil airport in Iraq reported

[Jpost] This is the third attack reported in the last two days, the other attacks targeted US forces in Asad base and near the US embassy in Baghdad since July 4.

Reports in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq said that there was an attack on Erbil International Airport on Tuesday evening. According to Rudaw the attack was a rocket attack. It comes a day after a drone attack was reported in Baghdad against US facilities near the US embassy. At least three drones targeted the Union III site near the embassy.

The Erbil attack was reported to include numerous rockets. In the past Erbil has been attacked by drones in late June and in April when a drone targeted a CIA hangar. The US has forces at Erbil airport. Pro-Iranian militias have increasingly targeted US forces in Iraq in attacks that take place weekly and now appear to have taken place daily since July 4. This included the two attacks on July 5, one of which was on Asad base, and then the attacks that unfolded the night of July 5 and now on the night of July 6 in Erbil.

US President Joe Biden ordered airstrikes on pro-Iran militias in Syria in late June in response to the drone attack near Erbil that struck near a site for the US consulate. The militias vowed to respond and fired a salvo at US forces in Syria near Omar oil field. Rumors said another attack near Omar unfolded on July 4 but the US-led Coalition denied that attack. The Erbil attack would therefore be the third attack in 36 hours. This is a major escalation by pro-Iran groups that seek to eject the US from Iraq. There have been around 50 attacks since the beginning of the year, increasingly involving drone.

The Kurdistan region is under threat from 122mm rockets based in Nineveh and has also been targeted by 107mm rockets smuggled closer to Erbil by militias. Drones have also been used because pro-Iran militias have difficulty penetrating the wall of security that the autonomous Kurdish region musters. However Iran now has the US in its sights and has apparently ordered its militias, likely via the IRGC, to begin a full-court press against the US. This militias include Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada.

The attack reportedly involved both rockets and missiles. Sources said at least 20 rockets and 3 drones were used. This would make it the largest attack so far on US forces and on Erbil. Iran has used cruise missiles and drone combinations in the past, attacking Saudi Arabia's Abqaiq in 2019 with missiles and drones. Footage in Erbil showed a fire and sirens as the attack unfolded. The airport was said to be closed due to the attack. Kataib Hezbollah had warned in recent days it had underground hidden rockets it could use. The major attack will force the Biden administration to consider a retaliation. It is believed that pro-Iran militias have large stores of rockets and drones as well as ballistic missiles in Iraq and Syria.

Update: The US Department of Defense downplayed the attack. The 20 rockets and 3 drones report was likely an exaggeration. "We are aware of reporting of a UAS incident in the vicinity of Erbil, Iraq. At this time, initial reports indicate no structural damage, injuries or casualties," a Department of Defense spokesperson said.
