    The death of a senior Afghan taliban, even with human sentiments for a died man, signify or may signify a disorientation, even if for a little time, of terroristic organization.
    Surely others will replace him, but on this mokent we may act to determine a disruption on their activity and a disruption beetween insurgent.
