    Afghan soldiers allegedly behead 4 Taliban
    Slaying of Afghan soldier avenged, commander says

    A senior Afghan militia commander alleged Wednesday that troops from Afghanistan’s U.S.-trained national army beheaded four Taliban fighters to avenge the similar slaying of an Afghan soldier and a military interpreter.

    The killings occurred Monday in southeastern Zabul province, said Naimatullah Khan, the commander of government militias in the region. U.S. troops were not present at the time, Khan said.

    Afghan National Army troops sent to look for an interpreter and soldier who became separated from a combined Afghan-U.S. force found their corpses and severed heads on a mountainside, Khan said. Four Taliban fighters were later caught in a search of the area, he said.

    “The ANA soldiers did the same thing. They cut off their heads,” Khan said. He said the corpses of the suspected Taliban were left where they lay, but had no further details.

    Whew, had to read the article. I was glad it wasn't our troops that did this, it was the Afghani troops, trained by US. On one hand I believe that it may be necessary to fight them the same way they are fighting us. However, there is something too barbaric about this whole thing, though I fear we are becoming desensitized to it all. Perhaps that's a good thing?

    Gotta feeling we're gonna see a lot more of this. I've heard it has been going on in the Balkans for some time now. Guess Westerners will get a more glimpses than we want to of Muslim behavior.

    I'm glad it wasn't US troops also. Main reason that this is good, its muslim troops (afghani's) using Islam to show the terrorists that they are not supporting the 'jihad'.

    :p: Lots you know! Had to write a paper on this back in the 90's. He was part, (though I don't think he was actually evil, of a history class we nicknamed, "The History of Evil".
