Meanwhile,
...back at the chili cook-off, Chuck and Manuel's rivalry was entering a new and more dangerous phase...
security forces reported that they evacuated the center of Sayyad district in the northern province of Sar-e-Pul
...a city and eponymous province in northern Afghanistan, population about 500,000. Demographically it is majority Tadjik and Uzbek. There are small Pashtun, Arab, and Hazara communities, of which the Hazaras mostly don't bother anyone...
and Oba district in the western province of Herat
...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns...
Figures collected by TOLOnews reveal that centers of at least 30 districts have fallen to the Taliban in less than two months.

"Over 50 murderous Moslems were killed in face-to-face fighting and by Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s in Khan Abad. Some commanders are also among them," said Kunduz Police Chief Farid Mashal.

Oba district in Herat; Shahrak, Tolak and Saghar districts in Ghor; Posht and Lash o Joyan districts in Farah; Jawand and Murghab districts in Badghis; Dawlat Abad district and Qaisar districts in Faryab; Sayyad and Sozma Qala districts in Sar-e-Pul; Burka district in Baghlan; Ishkamish district in Takhar; and Zari district in Balkh are among the 30 districts that have fallen to murderous Moslems during this period, according to TOLOnews findings.

"The root causes of why districts started to fall suddenly should be determined. Some districts were handed over to the Taliban in the west without resistance and their equipment was left for Death Eaters," said Sadiq Qaderi, an MP from Herat.

Centers of the following districts are among those captured by the Taliban: Washir district in Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
; Arghistan district in Kandahar; Shinkai and Arghandab districts in Zabul; Chinarto and Gezab districts in Uruzgan; Dob and Mandol districts in Nuristan; Arghanjkhwah district in Badakhshan; Deh Yak, Jaghato, Rashidan and Ab Band districts in Ghazni; Charkh district in Pashtun-infested Logar; Narkh and Jalrez districts in Maidan Wardak; and Dawlat Shah districts in Laghman
...Afghan province with a population of about 445,600, which is multi-ethnic and mostly a rural society. During the invasions of Alexander the Great, the area was known as Lampaka, wich is apparently Olde Macedonian for Laghman.The city of Mihtarlam serves as the bucolic capital of the province. The population is half Pashtun, the remainder Tadjik and Pashai. It had a repution for great wealth until it was conquered in the tenth century by Abu Mansur Sabuktigin.
He conquered it and set fire to the places in its vicinity which were inhabited by infidels, and demolishing the idol-temples, he established Islam in them, He marched and captured other cities and killed the polluted wretches, destroying the idolatrous and gratifying the Musulmans. After wounding and killing beyond all measure, his hands and those of his friends became cold in counting the value of the plundered property.
After that it was mostly notable for the production of dirt, rocks, and holy men...
"Districts are falling every day. Nothing changes then. They announce they have retreated. What does this mean? Kabul will fall and they will say that they have retreated," said Rohullah, a Kabul resident.

"People are worried. Kabul might fall if the collapse of districts continues," said Hashemi, a Kabul resident.

First Vice President Amrullah Saleh said that the recent advancements by the Taliban are narrow and that this narrow line of the Taliban "will soon be changed into a graveyard" for the group.

"In many areas that have been called a 'collapse,' Talib, by creating a narrow line, has progressed. Their sequence has no depth or width. Those who are familiar with the fight against Talib know that this narrow line will turn into a mass grave for this group of horror and ignorance," Saleh said in a Facebook post.

"There are areas in districts where we made retreats. New forces were sent, they were equipped and the enemy will soon be removed from there," Defense Ministry front man Rohullah Ahmadzai said.

"Tactical and operational initiatives are rare. They should bring in new methods. Districts should be helped by their neighboring districts if they are attacked," said former deputy minister of interior, Mirza Mohammad Yarmand.

At least 40 security force members have been either killed or maimed in festivities over the past 24 hours, but the Defense Ministry said Taliban casualties are higher than those of the government forces.

The Taliban has rejected figures provided by the ministry.
