Coalition service member killed in Afghanistan, ISAF says

A coalition service member has died following an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan, the International Security Assistance Force said Saturday.

It did not release details about the Friday attack or the service member's nationality.

In a separate Friday incident that was reported earlier, two U.S. troops were killed by an Afghan police officer in Farah province in southwestern Afghanistan, according to the NATO-led command in Afghanistan. Also, two ISAF troops and an Afghan service member were wounded Friday by another Afghan service member in Kandahar province, in the south.

    @Mary, I wasn't addressing Philip, so I don't see where you get that.
    And did you really just call me a liar?
    Oh, my.

      Unnesssay remark, Mary, when I have done nothing to you OR Philip.
      What I would like to know is what resonated with you so much in those posts that you feel the need to insult me.
      If you MUST know, Mary, I was addressing "Feel Compelled" for a tasteless remark.
      The man who was killed was somebody's child.

    2 US troops killed but I'd really like to see a story on the 26 troops that committed suicide in July alone. But that doesn't progress policy agenda now does it???

    So,why is Mary exempt from the recriminations that other women suffer from philip? She is doing EXACTLY what he accuses them of. She jumps on posters she obviously dislikes to "defend" him, usually corrupting the thread,yet he says nothing. Either Mary is pretty butch, or SOMEONE'S crushing on her....

      @ raven, Im not the subject for dispute, dont drag me into your mudslinging games. Im defending the right to have discussionons on news issues, not gibber gabber about nothing. And raven, I have very good reason for jumping on someone who specifically lurks around for certain people and pounces on them, then trys to make herself out to be the victim.

      "Lurks around for certain people and pounces on them". Sounds like the MO of someone whose name begins and ends with P. I really wish that guy would take his meds and get his own life.

      @raven: Crushing?

      I just looked it up on one of those online modern-speak dictionaries. It's not as obsene as I thought it was. I should have known raven would not be so undiplomatic. She's too classy for that.
