Afghans say hundreds of Taliban killed in Musa Qala


Neat.

Afghan and NATO-led troops killed, wounded and detained hundreds of insurgents during fighting in the Taliban's biggest stronghold, the Defence Ministry said on Thursday.

And yet the Taliban claim it a victory. I wish I could get into that mindset, where even the worst possible disaster can be seen as a triumph. It's like driving your car into the ocean and being content cause you got to go swimming.

Musa Qala, in the southern province of Helmand, took on a symbolic importance after the Taliban seized it in February following the breakdown of a much-criticised local truce that allowed besieged British troops to pull out of the town in October last year.

I guess when the British want something back they'll take it when they feel like it...umm...oh shit.
