WARRIORS! COME OUT AND PLAY!:

Forces Kill 37 Militants in Afghanistan (NOOR KHAN, 6/12/06, AP)

Afghan and U.S.-led coalition forces killed 37 suspected militants, including a relative of Taliban leader Mullah Omar, in three separate battles, an Afghan army general said Monday.

Omar's brother-in-law, Mullah Amanullah, was among 15 insurgents killed in one of the battles in Siachave village, in southern Afghanistan's Uruzgan province, when troops stormed the area late Sunday after a tip from tribesmen, said army commander Gen. Rehmatullah Raufi.

Amanullah, whose body was recovered from the village, was the Taliban commander in Uruzgan province's Dihrawud district and responsible for numerous rebel attacks, Raufi said.


Ever get the feeling that at the end of the WoT we win a giant stuffed animal, because it's pretty much just a real-life version of Whack-a-Mole?

Yeah, it's just a carnival game. That's why our soldiers are dragging it out so long, because they're having so much fun.

Dragging it out so long? As long as Jihadis keep sticking quarters in the machine, we should keep whacking.

We still have to disintegrate Gulbiddin Heykmatyr and probably a dozen or so other warlords. But he won't be wearing a suicide vest.
