    U.S. Embassy warns of imminent attack in Kabul
    WASHINGTON

    The U.S. Embassy in Kabul warned on Monday of an imminent attack in the Afghan capital, saying it had received credible reports of a threat within the next two days, although it had no other details.

    State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told reporters the threat was not made specifically against the U.S. Embassy, U.S citizens or any American interests in Kabul.

    "U.S. Embassy Kabul has received credible reports of an imminent attack in Kabul city, Kabul province, Afghanistan within the next 48 hours," the embassy said in a post on its website.

    "During this period of heightened threat, the U.S. Embassy strongly urges U.S. citizens to exercise extreme caution if moving around the city. There were no further details regarding the targets, timing, or method of the planned attack," it said.

    You'd have to be a dummy to be an American citizen in Kabul if you aren't part of the military.

    I remember seeing a documentary called 'Afghan Star - The Documentary'.

    It's like American Idol in Afghanistan.

    What an absolute, depressing shithole Afghanistan is.

    One of the female contestants dared to dance during her song and she got death threats and was nearly run out of the country.
