Attack on Ghazni, Afghanistan: 100 killed, 15 beheaded – UPI.com

{Hope this is spin but world is getting crazier by the moment it seems at times}

A brutal Taliban attack Friday in eastern Afghanistan’s Ghazni province killed at least 100 people, with 15 beheaded, a provincial leader said.

The assault came after a week of fighting about 60 miles southwest of the capital of Kabul. About 700 Taliban militants, some claiming to represent the Islamic State, overran and burned several villages. Ahmadullah Ahmadi, provincial deputy governor, said at least 15 civilians were beheaded. He added that the insurgents burned houses, killed livestock and destroyed wheat crops.

The town of Ghazni, one of the communities attacked, lies on a road to Kabul, and could provide a strategic base of operations for attacks on the capital.

A deputy police chief said he requested help from Kabul in responding to the attacks, but “so far nothing has been done.” Ahmadi added local police were running out of ammunition, and the district could fall to the Taliban without air support from the government.

Me? I am a vegan but who’s to tell a 102 person what they should or should not eat – grin

Runner’s High

Written Lines and Rhymes

When in life you hit a road

That seems just the ideal choice

Takes you where you want to go

And you want to dance, rejoice.

At first it beckons, clear and loud

‘This is the lane to all your dreams’

A straight directive, ‘Come on out,

I will take you to new extremes.

And all you need to do is this-

Just put all your heart and mind

Not follow this venture at bliss

You are strictly bound by time.’

The beckoning now is not so loud

A distant little background noise

Muffled by severe self doubt

And languor’s demanding voice.

But if you find a way to beat

The qualms that won’t let you by

And then go on with renewed heat

You’ll get to feel the Runner’s High.
