Taliban Suicide Bombers Pretty Much Only Killing Themselves These Days

More power to them:

From Jan. 24 to Feb. 14, a total of 17 suicide bombers took aim at one coalition member after another but failed to kill any of them, according to a compilation of reports from Afghan police and military officials, and from the American-led International Security Assistance Force....

[Example] On Friday, a suicide car bomber took aim at an American convoy in Khost Province, detonating as it passed, according to a Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, who claimed that all the soldiers in two trucks were killed. A NATO spokesman, Maj. Matthew Gregory, scoffed at that, saying no coalition personnel were hurt.

Also on Friday, a suicide bomber being pursued by ISAF forces blew himself up rather than surrender, according to the ISAF.

In related news our old nemesis and Zabihullah Mujahid's partner in crime, Qari Yousef Ahmadi, claimed that the Taliban shot down a Chinook helicopter in Marjah today.

Also, they have Elvis. They will killl him unless we release all Muslim prisoners.

PS-Since when did the Taliban starting using Digg?
