Canadian news outlet CTV.ca reports that Canadian military had a decisive victory over the weekend against Taliban terrorists. The operation was carried out in the Zhari district of Kandahar province last Thursday through Saturday Taken from the article:
Lt.-Col. Dave Corbould told reporters Monday that Canadian Forces "hit the Taliban hard" during operation Op Timis Preem.
Corbould said the operation's objective was to strike at the Taliban's command and control infrastructure and take away their ability to conduct operations against Afghan and coalition forces.
The mission's key goal was to reduce the Taliban's ability to build improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which they routinely plant along Highway Number One -- the main national highway that crosses Kandahar province.
The article then went on to explain the casualties of the operation and what the soldiers of the Canadian military face on a daily basis. What's never mentioned is the origin of the mission name. Apparently, the reporting journalist didn't make the connection between the mission and the heroic Leader of the Autobots.
