Afghan Towns Recaptured

Looks like the Coalition and Afghan Army forces have recaptured those towns we talked about below:

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan and coalition soldiers reclaimed the second of two southern towns Wednesday that had been overrun in recent days by the Taliban, Afghan and U.S. officials said. A purported Taliban statement threatened “severe” action in coming days.
Hundreds of ground forces battled Taliban fighters before entering the Helmand provincial town of Garmser, which had been captured by insurgents on Sunday, said Gen. Rahmatullah Roufi, the Afghan army commander in the country’s south.
“Our troops launched an attack on Garmser and thank God we captured it,” Roufi told The Associated Press. He declined to provide details.

I also like the sound of this:

“The Taliban appears to be bullying their way around some of the smaller towns in remote areas but they have no capability to lay claim to any piece of ground,” Fitzpatrick said.

    Well let’s hope they start laying claim to some pieces of underground.
