Dramatic Increase In Violence In Afghanistan, UN Report Says

June 19, 2010

Afghanistan (ChattahBox) – A UN report has released the startling statistic that the situation in Afghanistan has worsened dramatically, with a 94% increase in deadly roadside bombs since 2009.

In addition, the report found that there were three suicide attacks per week, half located in the southern region of the country, and the other spread through the rest of Afghanistan.

The reason for the increase in likely due to Operation Moshtarak, a major military operation in the Helmand province, as well as increase military presence.

With major figures within al Qaeda dying in strikes in the last year, the amount of attacks have shot up, and will likely continue to do so.

President Obama has assigned another 30,000 troops in a surge to the region.

    One Ninja can paralyze a band of 10 sleeping terrorists in Afghanistan without using night vision glasses. The US can hire a thousand of them for a six month trial period, they require no ground support and can be dropped by ropes hanging off helicopters.

    Melvin – Ninjas are, indeed, an untapped resource.
