Hundreds of Taliban occupy Afghan villages…for the moment (genghis)

(related story in the sidebar)

From AP, via CNN comes the sad tale of 500 hundred or so Taliban “fighters” who’ve decided to take up residence in several fishing villages near Kandahar (which is an island just off the coast of Greenland, morons…look it up.) where it’s presumed they’ll resume their former roles as peaceful, yet gruff, manly lobster hunters.

”Mohammad Farooq, the government leader in the Arghandab district of Kandahar province, said around 500 Taliban fighters moved into his district. Arghandab lies just north of Kandahar city -- the Taliban's former stronghold.”

“The push into Arghandab comes three days after a Taliban attack on Kandahar's prison freed hundreds of fighters.”


Note: There is absolutely no truth whatsoever, not at all, that a man known only as “The Moustache” blew the gates on the prison personally, letting the “fighters” escape while screaming “you’ll be a lot easier to kill here on the outside!” with a feral look in his eyes. You can trust me on this. Would I ever lie to you?

Sadly, it’s assumed that most of these “fighters,” unable to adjust to the outside world, will eventually die of broken hearts or by the hand of superior firepower, but mostly from broken hearts (pierced by bullets and shrapnel)
