    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A newly recruited Afghan village policeman opened fire on his American allies on Friday, killing two U.S. service members minutes after they handed him his official weapon in an inauguration ceremony. It was the latest in a disturbing string of attacks by Afghan security forces on the international troops training them.

    ......"minutes after he was issued his weapon"......?

    Since he could have done what he did at any time, there must be some significance to the timing of the shootings........


    Do the Afghans really want our help......or, are they just playing us for fools?

    Man, I just don't get it..........I'm inclined to start pulling out of Afghanistan. We need to reassess our role here.

    I asked the question about us being played for fools.......and, I honestly think that's a very good possibility.

    What is your take on what's happening in Afghanistan?
