'More Than 100 Enemies of Peace and Stability Were Killed'

At the rate the Taliban are getting their clocks cleaned in Afghanistan, one can only imagine the Democrats will soon call for an immediate pullout.
AFGHAN authorities said more than 100 Taliban-linked militants have been killed in an operation to retake a remote district from the rebels in south-western Afghanistan

The rebels were killed during two days of operations by Afghan security forces and their international allies in Bakwa, a remote district in the south-western province of Farah, the interior ministry said.

"During two days of operations more than 100 enemies of peace and stability were killed,'' ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary said
Naturally, AFP can't bear to call these mutants what they are. Or were, actually.
Over 100 rebels were killed in military operations in southwestern Afghanistan, authorities said Saturday, as dozens more people were killed or injured in other violence throughout the country.

The interior ministry said Afghan security forces backed by foreign military allies killed the rebels during two days of operations to retake the remote district of Bakwa in southwestern province of Farah.

The rebels had captured the district eight months ago, ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary told AFP.
