Early Morning Round Up

Before we get started here, I'm not a sports fan so the baseball/steroids issue escapes me. I know that the use of steroids is not acceptable in sports. It's cheating and you get what you deserve.

And on to today's round up.

    Exclusive: Eyewitness Account of Huge Taliban Defeat

    On Sunday, as the 82nd Airborne advanced to take positions north, east and south of the town, I watched the sky being lit with large explosions from heavy ordnance dropped from the air to support the U.S. advance

    I have been watching this unfold everyday as my son serves with Task Force Fury of the 82nd Airborne. I've seen a couple of 10 - 20 second stories on the evening news about this battle, but other than that, very little.

    You really have to search out the stories to get the full picture.

    The problem with this territory of Afghanistan is that the Taliban are customers of the opium that is used to finance their cause. But then the Taliban becomes brutal and the locals call for help.

    This is where I believe we will win in the long run, not only in Afghanistan but also Iraq, that being jihad will lose because of their brutal tactics.

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Musa Qala residents had requested government forces eject the Taliban. "A man who lost 19 members of his family in a bombardment in Helmand province came to me and said 'the people of Musa Qala are expecting you to save them'," Karzai said in a speech.
    The man from Helmand pleaded with me to set them free from the Taliban and also other fighters from Pakistan and other countries who brutalize and oppress the people."


    Karzai said the Taliban suspended a 15-year-old boy from a ceiling and lit a gas stove underneath him, burning him alive. "Does anyone believe a human being can be so savage as to burn alive a 15-year-old boy?" he asked.

    There is actually more to this story about the 15 year old. The Taliban made the boy's mother retrieve him after they burned him up.

    Measure the lefty's condemnation of atrocities committed by these thugs verses their condemnation of the U.S. Military. It makes you wonder if they do it for political purposes. Oh wait....never mind.
