US Kills 80 Taliban, Despite War Being Over More than 3 years

The AP Wire reports that a U.S.-led coalition nighttime airstrike against Taliban rebels in a southern Afghan village killed up to 80 suspected militants, the coalition said Monday. The local governor said 16 civilians were killed and 16 wounded.

Isn't that war over? Watching the cable news channels and their lack of reporting on Afghanistan, one would think the Taliban is an extinct relic that was neutralized or at least marginalized years ago.

And yet we're still killing them (over and over). Sounds like they're villains from a George A. Romero movie. "Night of the Living Taliban"
