circular firing squad

I see that the Taliban is trumpeting their killing of 80 people today. These victims were Pakistanis, and the Taliban is saying it is revenge for Osama's death.

Really? What a clever move. Making up for America's killing of their guy by killing other people who are upset that we did it. A lot of them are evidently police recruits or paramilitary Pakistani men. This is some form of Islamic theology at work, I suppose, and it's much too subtle for my poor mind to grasp. However, I think we should be quietly cheering them on.
