Our cousins on the other side of the Atlantic are upping their game and bringing the pain in a land that God has allowed to be cursed with the ravages of Islam. From the UK Mirror:

British troops take out 271 Taliban in six-day blitz

Nineteen Taliban commanders and 252 fighters were killed or captured as British troops launched a bloody assault.

Four enemy leaders masterminding a deadly explosives campaign against our forces in Afghanistan's Helmand battleground were among the dead in the six-day blitz, ending last Sunday.

And British soldiers helped capture a senior Taliban warlord who was acting as a "shadow governor" in the flashpoint province.

Generals say the offensive across Afghanistan has left many insurgents stranded without leaders and supplies. It came after 387 enemy commanders were killed or captured in previous three months, according to Nato.

It's like playing Whack-A-Mole at the state fair, except it seems like they'll never run out of moles. No problem. We have lots of mole whacking munitions and men who enjoy the sport.

Good news and impressive numbers.

Chris - the Brits who are not socialist wusses are dogged fighters. The socialists among them are more dangerous to their own people who do not agree with them.

Sorry, I think a better reference than moles is cockroaches.
