Canadians Kick Taliban Out of Arghandab

Canadian troops and their allies have cleared out Taliban militants from the outskirts of Kandahar City, killing or injuring hundreds of insurgents, the provincial governor said Thursday.

Kandahar Governor Asadullah Khalid made the announcement at a news conference with Canadian military officials.

"The Taliban have been cleared totally from Arghandab district," Khalid said.

"They have suffered hundreds of dead and wounded and many of their casualties are Pakistanis," he said.

Khalid also told media that local residents who were forced to leave their homes amid the fighting may be able to return over the next three days.

Surprise! The Taliban cannot hope to possibly defeat NATO militarily, and every time they try they lose. So much for the Globe's "Taliban Controlled Area."
