#3 I presume fresh violence is better than stale violence?

#4 Interesting that the Talibunnies left their dead. That usually means there weren't enough of them left to carry off both the wounded AND the dead, or that some of the wounded joined the dead. Nice to see the Afghan police responding so professionally to an ambush. The more of these sadistic bas$$$$s the "good guys" kill, the better.

#5 No, no, OP. Killing the bad guys only makes more of them, you see. The police, like all infidels (i.e., people not as "holy" as the Taliban) should just die.

Or the force was mainly, if not totally, composed of hired-guns.
