Massive bombing targets Indian embassy in Afghanistan

As U.S. President Barack Obama ponders his strategy for the war in Afghanistan, the complexities of the conflict were driven home once more on Thursday by a suicide car bombing that left 17 people dead and many dozens injured in the center of Kabul, the Afghan capital.

The target was the Indian embassy, and once again, the Taliban claimed responsibility.

Daniel Markey, a senior fellow for India, Pakistan and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations, joins Daljit Dhaliwal to discuss Afghanistan’s importance to India and the effect of the bombing on the U.S. mission in Afghanistan.

If Armed gangs were in our town then we would need more police. SOMEONE wants foreign soldiers to continue to occupy Afghanistan… the real question is Who is it. Surely not the Taliban.
