Taliban Foolhardiness

A few days ago I blogged about body counts in the war on terrorists. This story is the kind of body counts I do like to see. Still not in favor of a running total though.

Seventy five Taliban terrorists attempted a frontal attack on an U.S. led coalition base in southern Afghanistan. It didn't turn out so good for the terrorists.

GHAZNI, Afghanistan - A group of 75 Taliban militants tried to overrun a U.S.-led coalition base in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, a rare frontal attack that left more than 20 militants dead, the coalition said in a statement.

The insurgents attacked Firebase Anaconda from three sides, using gunfire, grenades and 107 mm rockets, the coalition said. A joint Afghan-U.S. force repelled the attack with mortars, machine guns and air support.

“Almost two dozen insurgents were confirmed killed in the attack,” the statement said. Two girls and two Afghan soldiers were wounded during the fight in Uruzgan province, it said.

What made these seventy five fools think they had a chance in that kind of fight? They hitting the opium water pipe?

Get the virgins ready. Two dozen jihadists on the way.
