Meanwhile, in Afghanistan

From The Long War Journal:

Taliban suicide assault team repelled at Kandahar Airfield

A Taliban suicide assault team was repelled while trying to breach the perimeter at Kandahar Airfield, one of NATO’s largest bases in Afghanistan.

A team of six heavily armed Taliban fighters, two of whom were wearing suicide vested, were stopped by Coalition troops outside the main gate at Kandahar Airfield, the largest logistics NATO hub in the Afghan south. More than 10,000 Coalition soldiers and contractors are based at the airfield.

“Six suicide bombers penetrated into the Kandahar airport,” a statement released by the provincial administration read, according to Xinhua. “Two of them blew themselves up and the four others were killed by security forces.

Other than that, the operation was another glorious victory for the mujaheddin and Islam. Their 72 white raisins await them.

More ominously, Afghans who helped the Coalition against the medieval psychotics and barbarians Taliban are already starting to pay the price for Julian Assange’s narcissism:

Late last week, just four days after the documents were published [by WikiLeaks], death threats began arriving at the homes of key tribal elders in southern Afghanistan. And over the weekend one tribal elder, Khalifa Abdullah, who the Taliban believed had been in close contact with the Americans, was taken from his home in Monar village, in Kandahar province’s embattled Arghandab district, and executed by insurgent gunmen … The frightening combination of the Taliban spokesman’s threat, Abdullah’s death, and the spate of letters has sparked a panic among many Afghans who have worked closely with coalition forces in the past, according to a senior Taliban intelligence officer who declined to be named for security reasons … The Taliban officer claimed that the group’s English-language media department continues to actively examine the WikiLeaks material and intends to draw up lists of collaborators in each province, to add to the hit lists of local insurgent commanders.

If there is a Hell, Assange belongs in it*. And I wouldn’t mind too much if a Predator drone opened the door there for him.

*(As does the traitor who fed him the documents.)

Michael Yon has another great photo-essay at his site this morning, this time of activity at Kandahar airfield in Afghanistan. Now you can learn the difference between a Predator and a Reaper!

He also has some choice words for the brave, brave jihadis who blow themselves up to reach Allah and kill innocents. The subject line of this post quotes just a few.

…Using children as human shields:

“The Taliban are obviously manipulating children and using them as cannon fodder,” said Major Robert Dunn of Ottawa, who oversees operations in southern and western Kandahar.

“There is one place west of Kandahar City where they shoot at us every day through a shield of children. They actually stack them up, with

8-year-olds at the front and 15-year-olds at the back.”

O valiant mujahideen! O noble Companion!Your courage is renowned throughout the world! Surely you make the infidels quake in fear of your righteousness!

And you keep telling yourself that right up to the moment a Marine puts a bullet through your cowardly, craven, and barbaric head.
