    Yahoo News:
    Up to 70 Taliban fighters were killed after trying to attack a foreign troop base in eastern Afghanistan, officials said Wednesday.

    The attempted assault happened late Tuesday at a combat outpost in Paktika province, close to the border with Pakistan where militants have hideouts. No international troops were killed or injured in the incident.
    The killings came as a district governor from the same province died of his injuries after his car was struck by a roadside bomb.


    Mokhlis Afghan, a spokesman for the governor of Paktika, said the attackers who targeted the ISAF base were likely to have come from the Pakistani side of the border.


    "In a joint ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) and Afghan operation last night in Barmal district, between 60 and 70 Taliban militants were killed," he said.


    "Initial reports show that this big group of militants wanted to attack a joint Afghan-ISAF base in Margha area of Barmal but were stopped and air assistance was called in."


    The NATO-led ISAF said that an estimated 60 Taliban were killed in the clash and there were no casualties among international forces.

    Nice work boys!

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men [and women] than himself." ~John Stuart Mill, 1806 - 1873

    I prefer that they come home and stop wasting their blood and tears on a futile mission. While we fight and bleed China walks away with the contracts to mine their exotic materials. That makes us a bunch of chumps.

    Good news, I figured from the ratio the 'International troops' had to be ours. The other participants either aren't inclined, or aren't allowed by their home country governments, to aggressively inflict casualties on the enemy.
