Taliban suicide bombing in Afghanistan: Considered to be a warning?

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for at least one of the two suicide bombings there today today, (there was also a killing yesterday that another group apparently carried out):

KABUL: A suicide bomber on a bicycle killed nine people outside the defence ministry in central Kabul on Saturday during a visit to the Afghan capital by new US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

The blast occurred near the main entrance gate of the heavily-guarded ministry, and Taliban militants immediately claimed the attack was timed to send a message to Hagel, who arrived in Kabul late on Friday…

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told AFP: “This was not a direct attack to target him (Hagel) but we want to send a message that we are always capable of hitting Kabul even when the top US defence official is there.”

In another suicide attack on Saturday, eight children and a policeman were killed in the eastern city of Khost in a strike that targeted a joint Afghan and international troop patrol…

A total of 100,000 NATO-led international troops are currently deployed in Afghanistan, with all combat forces due to exit by the end of 2014.  http://www.thenews.com.pk/article-91522-18-killed-in-two-suicide-blasts-in-Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan A suicide bomber on a bicycle struck outside the Afghan Defense Ministry on Saturday, one of two attacks that killed at least 18 people as U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel visited the nation, officials said…

“We are still at war,” Hagel said shortly before he arrived on Friday, the same day that three men wearing Afghan army uniforms and driving an Afghan army vehicle forced their way onto a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan and opened fire, killing one civilian contractor and wounding other U.S. troops.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57573409/defense-secretary-chuck-hagel-in-afghanistan-when-bombers-strike/

So, at least three terrorists incidents in two days in Afghanistan.  And at least one incident was apparently intended to warn the USA that those associated with the Taliban have influence and can show their “power” when they wish–this may also have been done to try to improve the Taliban’s bargaining powers with the USA as it negotiates its withdrawl.  Of course, the more direct Taliban message/warning is that the USA cannot defend the people of Afghanistan and that all in Afghanistan should heed what the Taliban want–whether they wish to or not.

Unless the USA keeps enough troops in Afghanistan (which it is not intending to do), the situation there will change to something that the USA has claimed that it does not want. The Taliban, other Islamic groups, and tribal leaders will pretty much insure that.

The Bible warns of various curses that peoples like the USA could face in the end, and terrorism seems to be one of them:

14 ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, 15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16 I also will do this to you:

I will even appoint terror over you…(Leviticus 26:14-16)

In my 2009 book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, I warned:

…writings suggest that the end of the U.S.A. will thus be in the 21st century. And as far as Asian forces go, this could be interpreted to include terrorists from places like Afghanistan and others parts of Asia.

The reality is that Islamic terrorists are not the only ones, but some in Afghanistan certainly might decide to engage in more direct terrorist acts against the USA or its interests.

Yet, it is the Kingdom of God that is the solution to this world’s problems: suicide bombings and otherwise breaking God’s commandments are not.
