US Marines kill more than 70 Taliban leaders in Afghanistan

Post by USMC_GUY on Thu May 31, 2018 2:32 am

Cool U.S. Marines in Afghanistan killed dozens of Taliban leaders last week using rocket artillery after tracking them to a meeting in volatile Helmand Province, according to the top American general in Afghanistan Wednesday.

U.S. Forces Afghanistan said more than 50 Taliban commanders, including the deputy Taliban shadow governor of Helmand was killed. Taliban leaders from six other provinces across Afghanistan were killed as well in the strike in the Musa Qala district of Helmand, according to the statement.

Twenty other Taliban leaders were killed in air strikes earlier this month by drones and Air Force A-10 Warthog jets based in neighboring Kandahar, which arrived earlier this year along with thousands of additional American troops. Cool

I'm not a fan of the taliban. *spits*
That article you posted says they are holding 'secret' talks to try for a peace deal. I have a 'why bother' attitude and think that's a waste of time unless it's a means to an end in discovering the who what where's of the taliban.
