So, the New York Times would rather give you a full piece on bullshit politics and Karzai the dictator, while hiding this:
"More than 60 Taliban are killed in firefight; 1 coalition soldier is dead, 4 injured" by Associated Press September 26, 2007
KABUL, Afghanistan - US-led coalition forces fought with Taliban militants in southern Afghanistan's poppy-growing belt yesterday, engaging in a daylong battle that left more than 60 Taliban fighters and one coalition soldier dead, military officials said.
Dozens of insurgents attacked a coalition-Afghan patrol near the town of Musa Qala in Helmand Province with machine guns, mortars, and rocket-propelled grenades, the coalition said in a statement. Taliban reinforcements flowed in from Musa Qala all day, it said.
We are LOSING this "war," and KILLING a bunch of INNOCENT PEOPLE!!!
O' may Allah forgive us!!!]
The coalition troops returned fire and called in artillery fire and attacks by fighter-bombers, leaving more than 60 of the Taliban fighters dead, the coalition said. One coalition soldier was killed and four were wounded.
The statement said there were no immediate reports of civilian deaths or injuries.
Major Chris Belcher, a coalition spokesman: "The end is near for the Taliban that believe Musa Qala is safe from Islamic Republic of Afghanistan forces. This combined operation is just one more step to securing the Musa Qala area of the Helmand Province."
[Yeah, and I have been hearing the SAME SHIT LIES for YEARS, sir, while the SITUATION gets WORSE, major!!!]
Taliban militants overran Musa Qala in February, four months after British troops left the town following a contentious peace agreement that handed over security responsibilities to Afghan elders. The town has been in the Taliban's control ever since.
[Oh. Not like I've been lied to about "progress" in the wars, though!
Elsewhere, a suicide bomber blew himself up next to a convoy of a border security commander in the southern province of Kandahar, killing five police officers, said the district border security commander, Abdul Raziq Khan.
Canadian military officials said a Canadian soldier was killed and four comrades were wounded while on patrol Monday in the Panjwayi district of Kandahar."
Is there more going on up there that you aren't telling us, War Dailies?
My eyes pop out when I get an on-line version!
"165 Insurgents Killed in Afghanistan" by AlisaTang/Associated Press September 26, 2007 1:31 PM
KABUL, Afghanistan - Two battles killed more than 165 Taliban fighters and a U.S.-led coalition soldier in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday as President Hamid Karzai prepared to discuss the escalating violence with President Bush in New York.
[165?!!!!??!!! O', the LIFE LOST!!!
Because of a LIE?!?!]
One of the clashes began Tuesday when several dozen insurgents attacked a joint coalition-Afghan patrol with machine guns, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades near the Taliban-controlled town of Musa Qala in Helmand province, with Taliban reinforcements flowing in all day, a coalition statement said.
The coalition said it returned artillery fire and called in fighter aircraft, killing more than 100 of the Taliban fighters. One coalition soldier was killed and four wounded.
The coalition said there were no immediate reports of civilian deaths or injuries.
Taliban militants overran Musa Qala in February, four months after British troops left the town following a contentious peace agreement that handed over security responsibilities to Afghan elders. Musa Qala has been in control of Taliban fighters ever since.
Situated in northern Helmand province, Musa Qala and the region around it have seen the heaviest fighting in Afghanistan this year. It is also in the middle of the country's poppy-growing belt.
In neighboring Uruzgan province, more than 80 Taliban fighters attacked a joint Afghan and coalition patrol from bunkers near the village of Kakrak in a six-hour battle Tuesday night, the coalition said.
Coalition artillery and air support bombarded Taliban positions, killing more than 65 insurgents, it said.
Three civilians were wounded in the crossfire, it said. No Afghan or coalition forces were hurt.
[Oh, the amount of souls that my craphole government has taken out of this world destroys me!!
O' Fatima, please present my tears to Allah for judgment!!!]
The battle took place near an area where more than three dozen insurgents were killed as they prepared an ambush six days ago, the coalition said.
The huge clashes come as Karzai prepared to meet with Bush in New York on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York. Bush is seeking assurances that Karzai is dealing with Afghanistan's soaring drug trade and security problems.
Afghan opium poppy cultivation hit a record high this year, fueled by Taliban militants and corrupt government officials, a U.N. report found last month. The country produces nearly all the world's opium, and Taliban insurgents are profiting.
[And by a CIA that relys on the shit to fund its off-the-books black ops!!!!]
More than 4,500 people have died in insurgency-related violence this year, according to an Associated Press count based on figures from Afghan and Western officials. Most were militant but at least 600 civilians were among those killed.
[And they are ALL PRECIOUS, PRICELESS LIVES LOST, too!!!! ALL of them!!!!]
On Tuesday, about 400 villagers blocked a major highway during a protest after two civilians - a father and son - were killed by international forces who were conducting a search operation in the Zhari district of Kandahar province, villagers said.
Our mass-murdering troops KILLED a FATHER and SON!!!!!
Spokesmen from both NATO and the coalition said they had no reports of any search operations or civilian deaths in Zhari.
Habibullah Jan, a lawmaker from Sanzari village, said NATO forces surrounded the village and killed the father and son. He warned that if international forces continued to target civilians, villagers would turn against them.
In the past week, international forces "arrested innocent villagers from three homes, calling them Taliban. Everyone knows that we don't let the Taliban into our area,'' said Karim Khan, one of the protesters."
Kicking down doors, ARRESTING, IMPRISONING, TORTURING, and KILLING people!!!!
Shitstinking George W. Bush and his fucking "liberations!!!"]
Convinced now, readers, that my shit Zionist War Dailies are omitting mass-slaughter of Muslims world wide -- in particular, the "all the shit that's fit to spew" New York Times??
