Afghanistan: military activity on June 20 2007

The latest news about military activity in Afghanistan state that:

  • There have been fierce fighting in Chora district (Uruzgan). NATO and Afghan forces recovered the district after 3 days battle, leaving about 100 people dead including civilians. [Aljazeera] [BBC].
  • Afghan police recovered the Myanesin (or Myanishen or Mian Nisheen) district (Kandahar) on Tuesday 19-June, after the Taliban took it on Monday 18-June [Rferl] [Bassirat] [BBC] [Bassirat].
  • Taliban took the Ghorak district (Kandahar) on Monday 18-June, and it is still in their control [BBC] [Bassirat].
The following map show the position of the places:

Afghan authorities said that Ghorak district is not strategic, we must see that is neighbor to the strategic Kajaki dam and to the conflictive Sangin valley. The mountains at Ghorak dominate these places.

I think that what you posted made a lot of sense.
However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier title?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title to maybe get folk's attention?
I mean "Afghanistan: military activity on June 20 2007" is kinda boring.

You should look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article titles to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people interested about what you've got to
say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
