Sunday Sign of Hope October 28th 2007

Coalition Forces Kill 80 Taliban in Six-Hour Afghanistan Battle

I've been asked why I consider the death of militants or insurgents or terrorists for that matter a sign of hope. The answer is simple. The Taliban, Iraqi insurgents, al-qaeda and the like harm people. I'm not talking about opposing forces like the US soldiers, Afghan and Iraqi police and army personnel, I'm talking about civilians that these pieces of shit behead, use as human shields or enforce their "law" over with the use of violence and intimidation. Bottom line: Dead insurgents can't hurt anyone anymore.

From Bloomsberg:

At least 80 Taliban fighters were killed when they tried to ambush a combined patrol of Afghan and U.S.-led international soldiers, an e-mailed statement from the coalition said today.

The Taliban fighters attacked a reconnaissance patrol of the combined forces with rocket and small-arms fire in the Musa Qaleh Wadi region of Helmand province yesterday, the statement said. ``The combined patrol immediately returned fire, maneuvered and employed close air support'' during a six-hour-long engagement.

The Taliban also used machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades in the battle, the statement said.

Last month, Afghan and U.S.-led forces killed more than 45 Taliban fighters in an air strike in southern Uruzgan's Deh Rawood district after coming under attack by rocket-propelled grenades and small-arms fire, the U.S. military said.

When the hell are we going to get bored and just glass that god-forsaken hell-hole?

Instant skating rink or giant skid pan, the possible uses are endless.
