Taliban Lose Operational Commander: Today's Cartoon

I think there is something awfully ironic about the Taliban having an "operational commander", who only "operated" on one leg to begin with. I mean, how much ability does it actually take for someone to tell their subordinates to go blow themselves up?

While I guess from a symbolic perspective the fact that the man in charge of the Taliban's operations is himself no longer "operating" could be viewed as a bit of a "setback" for the insurgents; however, I'm not so sure that this event is going to yield any significant changes to the overall conflict... with perhaps the exception of the next operational commander having two legs, to enable him to escape coalition forces a lot easier.
