You kill one of ours, we'll kill 276 of yours:

Afghan forces backed by the NATO-led troops have eliminated a total of 276 Taliban insurgents throughout the country over the last two weeks during series of operations, Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.

"Afghan National Army (ANA) forces during independent and joint operations with foreign troops have killed 276 enemies and detained 237 more insurgents all over the country over the past two weeks," General Zahir Azimi told reporters in weekly press briefing here.
