10 years of war in afghanistan

The War in Afghanistan began on October 7, 2001 as the armed forces of the United States of America and the United Kingdom, and the Afghan United Front (Northern Alliance), launched Operation Enduring Freedom, invading the country, in response to the September 11 attacks on the United States, with the stated goal of dismantling the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and ending its use of Afghanistan as a base. The United States also said that it would remove the Taliban regime from power and create a viable democratic state.

10 Years of the war has resulted in thousands of adead soldiers, thousands of dead Taliban and thousands of dead civilians and the job is still not done.

WARNING: Some images display scenes of violence and death.
