FCJ Quote of the Day

Mullah Dadullah
Taliban military commander

"The Americans have sown a seed. They will reap the crop for quite a long time. We will get our revenge on them, whether in Afghanistan or outside. The suicide martyrs, those willing to blow themselves up, are countless. Hundreds have registered their names already and are ready to go and we have hundreds more on the waiting list. Each is anxious to be the first to be sent."

- Mullah Dadullah,Taliban military commander, 3/1/7
