Taliban Seek Return of their Dead

Oh that reminds me. How's that "new Taliban offensive" working out for you guys?

Taliban forces asked that the bodies of their dead fighters be returned Monday after a weekend of bloody battles with Canadian and Afghan forces.

Knowing the mujahideen, they will proclaim the return of their dead as a "victory for the lions of Islam".

Afghan government officials said 72 Taliban were killed in a massive ground, air and artillery assault in the volatile Panjwaii District, west of Kandahar.

I wonder if they only get one virgin each now. I mean, how many virgins can Allah have? They don't grow on trees you know.

At least 22 bodies were returned by late Monday, said Haji Niamatullah, a member of the Kandahar Provincial Council and part of the government's reconciliation program.

You should probably arrest whoever it is you're giving the bodies to. Just a thought.

Following Islamic human rights code, Afghan security forces assured the Taliban that they would not be attacked while they were retrieving the bodies of their fallen comrades.

The Coalition forces however, made no such promise. ATTACK!! Oh man, that'd be priceless.

The return of war dead is a Muslim honour tradition that goes back to the battle of Ahzab in ancient Mecca.

So, it's a Muslim tradition to get slaughtered in such high numbers it becomes tradition to collect the dead. Good work Islam.

It is said that a renowned enemy warrior was killed and his body fell into a trench the Muslims had dug for the defence of Madina.
Enemy forces presented ten thousand dinars to the Prophet Mohammed and requested that the dead body of their fallen warrior be handed over to them.
The Prophet is said to have replied: "I do not sell dead bodies. You can take away the corpse of your fallen comrade."

It's the spirit of giving, like Christmas, only with death and war.

You can tell how well you are doing when the guys who come to pick up the stiffs keep reducing in numbers day by day.

What a joy that would be.
