Forty Dead Terrorists

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: GOP Bloggers)

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - American troops and Afghan police killed about 40 rebels and captured six during a battle in the mountains of southern Afghanistan, U.S. officials said Thursday, the latest in a string of clashes in an insurgent hotbed near the Pakistani border.

What makes this story interesting is that only 11 people (six soldiers and five policemen) were injured on the coalition "and friends" side. Much of the media seems to be shy about reporting in Afghanistan, due to the fact that much of the news coming out of the region seems to be generally good news. Keep our troops in prayer as we are still fighting a war over there. More below.

The battle, the deadliest in nearly seven months, occurred in the Dehchopan district of Zabul province, about 205 miles southwest of the capital, Kabul, a military statement said. It said U.S. helicopters and warplanes joined the fight against an insurgent band estimated at around 25 fighters...

Zabul is in Afghan territory along the border with Pakistan where Taliban loyalists have stepped up their insurgency against the government of U.S.-backed President Hamid Karzai after a winter lull. Bombings and gunbattles have killed dozens of rebels and Afghan police and soldiers as well as several civilians, an U.S. soldier and a Romanian soldier.

Much of this is due to not only the U.S. (and other coalition members) diligence in routing the Taliban but the Afghan's fighting the enemy as well. Many of the civilians remember what life was like underneath Al Qaida and their Taliban "authority," and seem to be willing to lay down their own lives in order to secure the freedom that was denied to them under such harsh leadership.
