HIMARS rockets video footage: Afghani locals “talk with awe of a powerful new rocket”

Amazingly, just a few months after NATO and Afghan troops gradually stepped up operations in the Taliban heartland of Kandahar, the insurgents have fled, with a return unlikely.

If pronouncements like “We broke their neck” from the Afghan police commander of Argandab district seem premature, consider this: The NATO general in charge of the area credits a new miracle rocket with helping turn the tide and it has been in Afghanistan for a while.

The Times‘ veteran Afghanistan correspondent Carlotta Gall writes that locals “talk with awe of a powerful new rocket” that NATO’s used to batter Taliban outposts in Panjwai “with remarkable accuracy.”
