Die, terrorist scumbags!
Pakistani commandos cleared the warren-like Red Mosque complex of all its die-hard defenders Wednesday, following an assault that ended a bloody eight-day siege and left more than 80 dead, including a pro-Taliban cleric.
Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad said the compound was still being combed for mines, booby traps and other weaponry.
“The first phase of the operation is over. There are no more militants left inside,” Arshad said in a telephone interview.
Set the flag of Islamism at half mast. Set the treefrog flag at half mast, too, since apparently Kumbaya-singing granola-crunchers have a problem with killing bad guys. I guess that means this is a dark day for San Francisco, but decent Americans celebrate the victory of our Pakistani allies in the War on Terror.
