GROUNDHOG DAY IN AFGHANISTAN:

Officials: Dozen militants killed in Afghanistan (The Associated Press, June 24, 2008)

Afghan officials say an airstrike has killed more than a dozen militants in the east of the country.

Police and militants fought a gunbattle in Sayid Karam district of Paktia province at about midnight Monday. When the gunmen withdrew toward nearby mountains, a warplane attacked them.

Provincial police chief Ismatullah Alizai said 15 militants were killed.


Thankfully, they never learn.

"Rise and shine, jihadis, it's Groundhog Day! And don't forget your booties, 'cause it's raining ordinance out there today. It's raining ordinance out there *every* day..."

You'd think Darwinism would kick in eventually. Just how many dumb ones are there?

Wherever two or more are gathered in the Taliban's name, Uncle Sam is there.
