This Will Make You Proud: HuffPo Thread of The Day

Did you know that more then 24 Taliban fighters were killed Wednesday?

KABUL, Afghanistan – U.S.-led coalition and Afghan forces clashed with Taliban fighters in southern Afghanistan, killing 24 suspected militants, while three more died in an ambush in the west, the coalition said Thursday.

The joint coalition and Afghan forces battled Taliban fighters for seven hours after they were ambushed while patrolling Wednesday in the volatile Sangin district of Helmand province, a coalition statement said.

Acting on an intelligence report of militant activity in the area, coalition forces then called in an airstrike, the statement said. The battle left 24 militants dead, while two coalition soldiers suffered minor injuries, it said.

"We threw the first punch, and it was a good one," said U.S. Gen. Dan McNeill, commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force. "We will continue to keep our hands up, hooking and jabbing and trying to dictate the terms."

That's good news from the Global War On Terror Against Radical Islamics, isn't it? I mean, we are waxing those who were part of the group who protected Al Qaeda, so that's good, right? Au contraire, mon fraire

  • Obviously not only is the surge working, but the efforts to redouble the number of magnetic ribbons all patriots are putting on the back of their SUVs has so inspired the troops as they are now completely winning whatever war they happen to be fighting at the time.
  • "24 Taliban Fighters Dead After Air Strike" The feel-good headline of the day…
  • And second… 24??? 24??!!! The right-wing finally gets some of that neglected "good news" they've been crying about for 4 years and the best headline out of Afganistan is that we killed TWENTY-FOUR Taliban??????!!!!!
  • Mission Accomplished.
  • …riiight…these announcements are usually followed days later with the revelation that all killed were innocent civilians as the Taliban narrowly escapes moments before the strike…
  • Were they really Taliban Fighters or just Innocent Civilians?!
  • Let's get one thing straight. No one, but no one fights for me. I did not ask for these  stupid wars, nor did it cramp my style in any way nor do I see a cause. Bring the troops home now for they are fighting for the few, who make money off the war.
  • Isn't a Taliban in Afghanistan the same as a Christian in America ?
  • Khobar towers, USS Cole, World trade center, embassy bombings. Maybe if Clinton would have took more action then instead of playing with his interns we wouldn't be where we are today. ring any bells

    And don't forget Waco. Where the US Military was used to kill innocent US men, women and childern on US soil.

But don't question their patriotism nor their support of our troops.

Especially not Dingy Harry, who said we are losing.

    When 25 taliban were killed is this significant ? For how long would the Taliban be able to accept casualties of 800 per month 10,000 per year ? They are drawing from a population of perhaps 3,000,000. That means 30,000 men turn 21 each year 1.5M males life expectancy 50 years) Afghanistan lost 2 million during the fighting with Russia.
    Proper analysis can only be done with an absence of emotion, otherwise we will “see” only what we wish to see.

    Blackbeard WT – Let’s do some neocon math…
    25 Islamomaniac pro-DNC Taliban eliminations times 72 virgins each = 1800 virgins putting out in casbah harem heaven? If we eliminate more – with thermal nuclear heat – soon there won’t be any virgins left! Thanks for your patriotic blog WT for compassionate conservative veterans and patriots appreciate your fight to write the right in today’s evil and dark secular atheistic and treasonous Anti-American nation.
