As we’ve informed you, the Taliban, the Islamic extremist terrorist group of Afghanistan, which the US has been battling since 2001, committed another gruesome attack yesterday <a href="http://thegoldwater.com/news/16931-Breaking-Video-Taliban-Kill-40-With-Ambulance-Bomb">when they drove an ambulance equipped with an explosive device into a group of men in the centre of Kabul</a>.
The suicide bomb, which killed more than 100 people and wounded at least 235 is the worst attack seen in the Afghan capital in months, and has left many fearing for the future.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid stated that “the Islamic Emirate has a clear message for Trump and his hand kissers that if you go ahead with a policy of aggression and speak from the barrel of a gun, don’t expect Afghans to grow flowers in response.”
Many in the Afghan capital are indeed left wondering as to what is next, with shopkeeper Mohammed Hanif claiming: “We have no security, we don’t have no proper government, what should we do?”
“People were running everywhere to escape, there were wounded people lying on the ground, people with wounds to their arms, legs, heads.”
