Of course the news in the last 24 hours has been all about Quaddafi being snuffed out by his Libyan people (of course after we bombed his convoy). But there are lots of tangos dying in other places too.
NATO and Afghan forces have killed at least 115 insurgents over the past week as part of an ongoing operation in a northeastern Afghanistan province, the coalition said Thursday, as it looks to curb insurgent activity along the border with neighboring Pakistan.
The fighting in Kunar province, known for its rugged terrain that leaves coalition supply lines from Pakistan vulnerable to insurgent attacks, comes as NATO is stepping up efforts to secure the country and ready Afghan forces to fully take over security responsibilities before international forces wind down their combat mission in 2014.
NATO said the operation has been going on since around Oct. 15th and has included the use of fighter jets and long-range bombers. The alliance said that one NATO service member has been killed since the fighting began. It was not immediately clear if any Afghan troops had been killed.
“This is a series of multiple, smaller operations that have a combined, larger impact,” said Master SgtSergeant (E-5). Nicholas Conner, a NATO spokesman at Bagram Air Field. “Most of the Kunar region is marked with isolated pockets of villages that (Afghan and NATO) forces focus on at the company level or smaller.”
This is great news that everyone should now about and something that the military needs to be getting into the news. We are fighting a never-ending enemy in the AF-Pak region and when we kill 115 bad dudes then why isn’t every news outlet talking about it? Why isn’t the SecDef holding Press Briefings in the Pentagon? Our military is on a major military operation to wipe out as many of these bastards as possible and we should be proud of them and very happy.
There are operations going on all the time and our military rarely, if ever gives body counts or talks about them. But the Information Operations fight is as important as the bullets flying fight. We need to show off and brag to our allies, our citizens and to the people of Afghanistan that we are kicking ass and taking names.
