Good news from Afghanistan. According to the New York Times: "Up to 40 Taliban guerrillas and seven Afghan government soldiers have been killed in the Taliban’s worst defeat since it was driven from power by an American-led coalition in 2001, officials said today." They were killed by Afghan troops, not Americans or other allied troops. That is good news. It is also interesting to note what the Afghan soldiers do with the bodies of the Taliban: "Twenty-one bodies that government officials said belonged to the Taliban were laid out near the Pakistan border so that relatives could collect them."
