Via Instapundit I read about yet more Taliban being used for target practice in Afghanistan.

I wonder if we shouldn’t try a different sort of psy-op in that regard and have official announcement of how well our live fire training is going. Those spokesmen should scoff at the very idea that the Taliban are any sort of real threat, but instead provide an excellent way to get units the kind of final polishing they need to fight actually dangerous forces. It’s one thing to be a matyr against overwhelming forces of darkness, another to be considered a somewhat better alternative to cardboard cutouts.
