"Of course there are some Taliban left in here, but they have dropped their weapons and they are hiding," said Colonel Rasoul, the commander of the 3rd Kandak, the best regular army unit in the fledgling Afghan security forces.
The operation, which began last week during the Persian new year celebrations of Nawruz, involved 400 Afghan security personnel, the biggest Afghan-led sweep yet in the Nato offensive in Helmand.
Crucially, it was also backed by local militias, whose commanders had sworn to remove the Taliban from their land.
The success means that much needed-reconstruction projects, postponed for months due to the Taliban presence, can now begin as planned.
The Afghan army soldiers patrolling through the fields of Nad Ali also boast new helmets, flak jackets and weapons - the first signs of a $2 billion US aid package designed to turn a ragtag force with an acute desertion problem into an army that would allow Western troops to begin pulling out. Another $6.2 billion is promised to the corrupt and widely mistrusted Afghan police force.
Nancy pelosi is said to be deeply disappointed by the coalition success and vows to everything she can to ensure we lose and expose Bush.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

gawd... please (Please be quiet - edited)... and go watch porn or something and release your anger...
no one is "breathlessly" awaiting any Taliban offensive, nor rooting for the enemy (the real enemy, i might add) ... when you strawman your opponent's argument, you just look more and more stupid and incapable of relevant debate ...
