This is the sort of event where I used to say things like “I don’t really want to celebrate the death of another human being” and such.
You’ll notice I’m not saying anything like that.
Of course, the enemy we fight has the capability to replace leaders easily enough and replacement for this bastard is probably taking control as we speak. But it’s nice to knock a few of these guys off once in a while.
The fight in Afghanistan is going to go on for a long, long time. Longer, I think, than the fight in Iraq. But we’ll take every little victory we can get, and this one isn’t all that little.
Our troops, the NATO troops, Afghan troops, and the troops of other allied nations deserve a big pat on the back for this.
