Sad: 2000 Brave Taliban Warriors Will Soon Be Departing The Earth

Why do they do this?

They've seized a town in Afghanistan, and will soon face the full fury of the US military (along with some international troops).

I definitely don't mind that they so frequently choose to attempt a conventional sort of battle. I just don't understand how they can be so stupid to face the US military on its own terms.

International and Afghan troops have begun a major offensive to retake a strategic town in southern Afghanistan from the Taleban, Nato sources said.

Nato says Afghan and British ground troops used heavy gunfire against the Taleban on the outskirts of Musa Qala.

It says the main assault will be carried out overnight by US soldiers who have been dropped in by helicopter.

The Taleban say they have 2,000 troops defending the town in Helmand province, which they seized in February.

Musa Qala is the only substantial town the Taleban hold in Afghanistan. For now, they say they are holding their ground.

The BBC's David Loyn, in Kabul, says the town has been the main centre of drugs trading in the country since the Taleban moved in in February and has taken on symbolic importance for both sides.

Friday's attack by British and Afghan forces began in the afternoon, from three directions. Further raids are expected to be carried out on Saturday.

The main assault is being conducted overnight by US troops, who were deployed just before sunset, and have the added advantage of night vision equipment, Nato said.

The Taleban defences include hundreds of mines.

Mines will certainly steal some lives from US soldiers, but the static line of defense hasn't worked since World War I.

A true victory will consist of killing every one of these bastards to the last "man." Hopefully we're deployed to make escape impossible. And hopefully our commanders on the ground will make surrender rather difficult as well.

"What's that? I can't hear you over the sound of my RPG."

Thanks to dri.

Incoming! Mikeylaw snarks:


Prepare hundreds of virgins for new arrivals from Musa Qala. New arrivals may require medical attention for numerous bullet wounds. Body parts may not arrive all at same time.

That is all.
