Slowly but surely, Brits taking back southern Afghanistan from the Taliban

Southern Afghanistan” meaning Helmand province, in particular, site of yesterday’s airstrike on a congregation of the Taliban’s finest to witness a public execution. Net result: 100 jihadis dead and up to five senior commanders, including possibly the new operational honcho himself, Mansour Dadullah. Dadullah is the brother of the now-deceased “Taliban Zarqawi,” Mullah Dadullah, having taken the reins after NATO liquidated him in June just in time to preside over that dopey Taliban suicide bomber “graduation ceremony” that Brian Ross did so much heavy breathing over. I wonder how many graduates were at the hanging yesterday and didn’t make it out.
