Months of research across the country show how areas the Taliban threaten or control have surged since foreign combat troops left in 2014. The Afghan government played down the report, saying it controls most areas. But recent attacks claimed by Taliban and Islamic State militants have killed scores in Kabul and elsewhere. read more

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has garnered a large following on social media with rambunctious postings, said he sometimes tweets from bed. In an interview with Britain's ITV channel, he appeared to appreciate the wide impact of his postings in Twitter and said that he needed social media to communicate with voters in the era of what he termed fake news. "If I don't have that form of communication I can't defend myself," Trump said in an interview broadcast on Sunday. "I get a lot of fake news, a lot of news that is very false or made up." It was a crazy situation, he said, that many people in the world waited for his tweets. read more

The United States aims to press the Taliban on the battlefield to convince them that they will have to negotiate peace, a senior US diplomat said on Tuesday, a day after President Donald Trump rejected talks following a series of attacks.

President says "no we won't talk", his officials say "yes we still want to talk".

No wonder the US loses it's wars.... the wheels have come off the Clown Car.

Nice dodge.

Not a dodge. Simply asking myself if MADAM knows what she is talking about?

36 of your Navy people got killed.

Hmmmm.... "My" navy?

People in Texas got "killed"???


15 attackers killed 18 military personnel...

You seem to have a knack for exaggeration and outright lying, I've noticed. When caught "but OK THIS was what I meant".

Not good enough, my dear MADAM.

There was even a retalitory attack by Pakistan.

They killed the planner and his team 3 days later, in or near Afghanistan. So?

Do you still say it didn't happen?

I posted a link to the Wiki, but it seems you are talking to the wrong person.

This seems to be an unfinished conversation between you and RIGEL.

Go talk to HIM. Why drag ME in the middle of your lover's quarrel?
