Rockets And Grenades Fired At Kabul Airport After Mattis’ Arrival

    Less than two hours after the United States defense secretary James Mattis landed in Kabul, about forty rockets and rocket-propelled grenades were fired at the airport. Mattis was not injured.

    This is Mattis’ first trip to Afghanistan since President Donald Trump  announced a new strategy for Afghanistan, recommitting to the country and declaring during a prime-time address back in August that U.S. troops must “fight to win.” According to Fox News, the new strategy for the 16-year-old war includes sending roughly 3,500 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan to join the 11,000 on the ground. Sixteen years after the 9/11 attacks, Kabul is still being attacked by the Taliban. On Tuesday in Washington, General Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said it’s time to demand that Pakistan stop giving sanctuary to the Taliban.

    Already, the US military is increasing airstrikes in Afganistan. In August of this year, more bombs were dropped on the Taliban and an ISIS-affiliated group than any month since 2012.

    The Defense Secretary had already left the airport to meet with Afghanistan’s President Ghani when the attack occurred. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack and one unconfirmed report had alleged that there was an injury. CNN reported that Mattis was the target of the attack, but wasn’t injured.

    Mattis arrived in Kabul just after 11 p.m. ET (7:30 a.m. in Kabul) after spending Tuesday in India. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg was also on the flight. Mattis spoke about the attack at a news conference in Kabul, alongside Afghanistan’s president.  “If in fact there was an attack on an international airport anywhere in the world, if it’s an attack by a terrorist it’s designed to go after innocent people,” Mattis said. “And this is a classic definition of what the Taliban is up to now. We will suffocate any hope that Al-Qaida or ISIS or the Taliban have of winning by killing. I want to reinforce to the Taliban that the only path to peace and political legitimacy to them is through a negotiated settlement,” Mattis added.

    The director of the Kabul airport said all flights have been halted as result of the mortar attack at the airport for the time being.

      1. Rockets And Grenades Fired At Kabul Airport After Mattis’ Arrival

        This must be Afghanistan’s way of saying: “We are tired of your intervention in our country … yankee go home!”

        • How dare they stand up to our invasion!

          • They hate him for his “freedoms” – ツ

        • FTW, agreed. We need to get out of Afghanistan, Iraq, and everyplace else where we have troops and bring them home. They would be more useful dealing with antifa.

          • I dont think we need anymore standing armies in our country than we already have

            what should happen is We deal with Antifa and be backed by our president ..

            because you know what would happen if we allowed our military to enforce anything on our shores .. ML and we dont want that

            its also anti Constitution

      2. Damn savage rag-heads just never stop. . .

      3. Just like what happened to Hilary in Sarajevo. Or not.

      4. Just an FYI, I have read that there is supposed to be a nationwide emergency alert test happening today covering all types of media. We’ll see I guess.

        • I wonder why? Oh yeah what folks are ignoring everywhere the spectre of nuclear war on the horizon. Or maybey just a monthly test all just synced

        • Genius, where did you see that report? I don’t like the sound of that.

          • As you’re too lazy/thick to check this your self here’s the link:

            ht tp://

          • I was fixing a batch of fresh turnip greens from garden this afternoon.

            EBS did a test. on the TV. heard it from the kitchen.

            made me go look to see IF it really was just a test.

            on edge, i guess

      5. Two hours later. I think the T-Ban is lacking on intelligence. Its a war zone did you think they were going to send Roses???

      6. I hope Mattis just says “to hell with it!!” and lobs about 100 MOABs into Kabul after he leaves. Bomb ’em all and let Allah sort them out. There is no such thing as an Islaamic friend of the USA.

      7. To The Deplorable Braveheart, google it. The test starts today 9/27/17 at 2:20 P.M.

      8. The fake killing of CIA agent Tim Osman, aka Osama bin Laden carried out by special forces who themselves were sacrificed to hide the truth signify the treason of Obama-Clinton and the military establishment. Yet they released the white house photo of the whole treasonous bunch that screamed guilty. The Afghan people are not the enemy.

      9. This is not a laughing matter. We received a National Emergency all counties USA notice from Spectrum TV shortly after this event. We bugged out about 15:00 after seeing military jets over Charlotte. It appears to have been a drill. But why didn’t they say so? No coverage anywhere on any network. I still wouldn’t know what happened at Kabal but for YOU. Thanks!

      10. Sixteen years, 2400 Americans dead, more than 20,000 wounded, approximately one trillion dollars spent on Afghanistan and the Taliban are still close enough to lob mortar shells at the capitol city’s airport. I guess they don’t call that place the graveyard of empires for nothing. What an utter tragic folly.
