JUST ANOTHER WAY THE WARFARE IS ASYMMETRICAL:

Wanted Taliban leader killed in raid (Sayed Salahuddin, 8/30/07, Reuters)

A wanted Taliban insurgent leader in Afghanistan, Mullah Brother, was killed on Thursday in a U.S.-led raid in the southern province of Helmand, the Afghan Defence Ministry said, citing ground commanders.

Brother served as a top military commander for the Taliban government until its removal from power in 2001 and was a member of the movement's leadership council led by its fugitive leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar.


We kill their commanders--they don't get ours.

Y'know that old cliche "You have to be lucky every time, but we only have to be lucky once"? That only applies to the guy who's on offense...

Mullah Brother? Sounds like a character from a Shaft movie.
