Taliban Overrun Another Afghan Military Base, Killing 45 Troops

For the second time this week, Taliban insurgents attacked and overran an Afghan Army base in the country’s north, this time in Baghlan Province. The offensive lasted about five hours, and left the Taliban in control of the military base and a nearby police checkpoint.

Starting before dawn, Taliban fighters quickly overwhelmed the police checkpoint, killing nine police, then moved on to the army base. They got to the base in Baghlan-e Markazi District and took that as well, killing another 36 troops.

Baghlan Governor Abdul Hai Nemati says that reinforcements have been sent to try to recapture the area. Checkpoints in the area were reportedly set on fire by the Taliban, however, so not everything can be recovered

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this administration, coupled with NATO, had two brain cells to rub together on this issue, they would immediately evacuate their troops in Afghanistan out of the country as quickly as was safely possible, negotiating with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the rights to the oil pipelines, rare earth minerals, and poppy production.

Of course... that... would be logical.
