Body Count

The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his.--Gen. George S. Patton

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- Taliban bodies were said to be piling up Sunday after heavy fighting with Afghan and Canadian forces in southern Afghanistan.

Between 60 and 72 Taliban insurgents were killed in battles that began late afternoon Saturday and lasted throughout the night, NATO said.

The death toll could not be independently confirmed.

There were no casualties among soldiers from NATO's International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF.

However, sources said as many as seven Afghan police died in the battles while another said four Afghan government fighters died and four others were injured.

Bodies and body parts were found scattered throughout the area following the fighting, which was part of a "deliberate operation," NATO said in a statement.

This bit of news puts the deaths of 26 Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan over four years in much-needed perspective.

For every one of ours they kill, we're killing a dozen more of theirs.

Just once, I'd like to see the Canadian media highlight the number of enemy fighters we've sent to meet Allah.

Of course, if they did, the same people who are bleating that too many of our men are getting killed would start complaining about our "disproportionate response."

Plus the CAF would hold another Pro-Hezbollah Peace rally , except this time they'd burn Canadian flags .

BTW, a PBS dvd on Al-Qeada has a piece on the "Khadr Klan Kids" and their Mommy/Daddy dearests , the females praise the 9/11 hijackers for murdering 24 Canadians because their taxes go towards bullets that kill Muslims.
If these hate-filled Islamofascists are allowed to live in Canada and get welfare and free health care while holding those views and wanting their sons to die in Jihad killing more Canadians, then I have no doubt the CAF will find enough Palestinians like the Khadr females to march in Toronto and Montreal with Hizbollah flags and later burn our Flag.
