Taleban cowards

Times Online reported Taleban fighters used women and children as human shields as they tried to escape into the mountains of Afghanistan, British troops claimed yesterday.

That is because they are cowards. They may try to convince others that it is a great honor to die during Jihad, and that there will be 72 virgins waiting for a fighter that dies in battle, but deep down they know that such fighters are really headed to Hell, and there will be no virgins waiting for them, and they want to put off as long as possible their journey there.
The tactics were revealed in the first account by those who fought in one of the main battles faced by the men of 3 Para and the Royal Gurkha Rifles in Helmand province, where 3,300 British troops are stationed. The Taleban’s use of human shields happened during a six-hour battle that began when British troops arrived in a remote area to flush out a suspected Taleban hideout.
