I Didn't Want to be Part of this Insane Mission!!

Not my words, but those of Heike Groos, a doctor serving with the German army in Afghanistan. She testifies how the situation has deteriorated to the point of paranoia. The longer she was there, the more doubts she had behind the German "mission" in that country: A suicide bomber blew up one of the German buses, killing four soldiers instantly, and seriously wounding many more. Even to this day, she is still haunted by the memories of the dead German soldiers, who died for an oil and gas pipeline, so that multinational corporations could make record profits!
Meanwhile, NATO handed the Taliban a big political victory because of air strikes in the northern province of Kunduz, which left over 100 people dead and injured. The Taliban portrayed the incident as an intentional massacre. In Germany, well over two thirds of the country already favor a withdrawal of the 4,500 German contingent. Chancellor Angela Merkel demanded that the "international community" needed to apply pressure on Kabul to insure that the international engagement can be reduced.
Sic transit gloria mundi.
