Taliban driven out of key town

And don't come back!

BRITISH commandos who spearheaded a 1,000-man push into the Taliban’s “heart of darkness” were claiming a major success yesterday, writes Tim Albone.

Into the heart of darkness? When did the war in Afghanistan become a part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy?

The dawn raid on Sangin in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan, was designed to prevent a build-up of Taliban forces who had been building elaborate tunnel systems and fortifications in the town.

No digging for you.

The operation to drive them out combined Royal Marine commandos and US paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne division, backed by Afghan, Dutch, Eston-ian, Danish and Canadian troops. The ground troops were supported by helicopters and Harrier jets.

See, when we all come together, work as one to accomplish a common goal, there's no limit to the amount of Muslims we can slaughter.
