Taliban Tweet Battle....yo

The following is an exchange between the Taliban spokesman (spox), Abdulqaqhar Balkhi, and the International Security Assistance Force's twitter-guy. From the Guardian:

ISAF: "Re: Taliban spox on #Kabul attack: the outcome is inevitable. Question is how much longer will            terrorist put innocent Afghans in harm's way?" 

Taliban: "@ISAFmedia i dnt knw.u hve bn pttng thm n 'harm's way' fr da pst 10 yrs. Razd whole vllgs n mrkts.n stil hv da nrve to tlk bout 'harm's way" 

ISAF: "Really, @abalkhi? UNAMA reported 80% of civilians causalities are caused by insurgent (your) activities" 

Taliban: @ISAFmedia UNAMA is an entity of whom? mine or yours?


That was a few weeks ago. They're still fighting today:

ISAF: 11 children among dead. Noticed  didn't tweet this one.

But who ever is in charge of the ISAF twitter page is fully engaged, as seen in today's exchange with  Joshuafoust
