NATO: 13 killed in Kabul suicide bomb attack

By Nick Paton Walsh reporting from Kabul, Afghanistan

Five troops and eight civilians were killed in central Kabul when a suicide bomber struck a vehicle in a military convoy, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said Saturday.

A U.S. military official earlier said they were Americans, but an ISAF spokesman could not confirm that.

    Pakistan is a peace loving country and has lost over 30,000 lives fighting terrorism as our partner and ally in our struggle, besides spending millions of dollars. We do not appreciate their efforts rather and blame them for our shortcomings. This is the country that has been our friend and ally since their independance from British rule in 1947. This war in Afganistan has cost us precious lives as well as billions of dollars a year. We are considered occupiers of their land in Afganistan and need to get out of it.

    Being a humanist I condemn killing of all human beings on either side however I openly blame USA for all these killings in Afghanistan and Pakistan as after all they are invaders and all over the world they are behind wars deaths and destruction. USA must stop this death merchandise in world politics otherwise it will destroy not only USA but also challenge world peace. Occupation of Afghanistan had been a wrong decision which has faced USA with multiple threats and Americans as a nation too have condemned Bush for this therefore sooner they leave Afghanistan the better it will be for USA and rest of the world.
