2010 deadliest year yet in Afghanistan

This year has been the most violent in Afghanistan since war began in the country in 2001.

Afghanistan Rights Monitor (ARM) underlines the number of security incidents as well as the extent of the insurgency and counter-insurgency-related violence which has ‘dramatically’ increased.

At least 1,074 civilians were killed and more than 1,500 injured in war-related incidents in the first six months of 2010, compared with 1,059 killed in the same period last year, ARM said.

ARM‘s mid-year report “Civilian Casualties of Conflict” said President Obama’s policy of intensifying operations against the Taliban has not disrupted, dismantled or defeated the insurgents. On the contrary, it says, “the insurgency has become more resilient, multi-structured and deadly”.

  1. Afghan Devastation IS the Plan – Chilcot2 later

    All the talk of Failed wars is spin. The primary aim is to destroy the countries, the communities and their way of life. Iraq is therefore a success. Afghanistan is getting there, and Pakistan and Iran are in the plan.

    All we hear is Obama and Hillary etc, they are in no way making the policy.
