U.S. predicts increase- in Afghan violence KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Insurgent violence in Afghanistan Afghanistan could reach record levels this year as militants increasingly target police and development projects, a top U.S. general said Thursday. Maj. Gen. Jeffrey J. Schloesser, who commands U.S. forces in the country, said violence is increasing as insurgents pour into Afghanistan from neighboring Pakistan. Violence "may well reach a higher level than it did in 2007," • the bloodiest since the ouster of the Taliban regime in 2001, Schloesser said.
