We're Winning Afghan Hearts and Minds

Listening to the news on CBC Radio this morning, I heard this little report... I'm still looking for the web report... "15 Canadian soldiers came under attack by insurgents this morning in Afghanistan... the Canadian soldiers were assisted in repelling the attackers when local villiagers came to their rescue."

I don't know about you, but that makes it sound like the hearts and minds are well on their way to being won.

Then I also read this report on CBC... looks like Pakistani villiagers are getting sick and tired of the militants too...
Militants under pressure from Afghan forces, Pakistani tribesmen

Local forces on both sides of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border have killed as many as 200 militants without the active backing of Western soldiers, reports said Friday.

Afghan security forces killed at least 49 militants in Helmand province without the participation of NATO troops, Afghan officials said.

Pakistani villagers had killed up to 160 foreign fighters in the lawless border area between Pakistan and Afghanistan, a Pakistani provincial governor said.

There were smaller number of casualties among the Afghan forces and Pakistani villagers.
