Afghan soldiers face terror on the job
'In the ongoing war against terrorism, the death of two Afghan soldiers is a sad but normal occurrence. According to US military officials at Bagram Air Base, near Kabul, Afghans are the frontline soldiers fighting with US forces against Al Qaeda, and they are usually the first to be killed. While US deaths in this low-intensity conflict are rare, dozens of Afghan soldiers are killed each month.'

The opponents of the US/Karzai regime might also be described as resistance fighters to superpower occupation and its puppet regime. They certainly would be if it was an 'enemy' power that was doing the occupying and puppeteering.
