"Many Taliban Dead"

Message from Micheal Yon

British 2 Para in Helmand provence have been repeatedly and successfully closing with and engaging the Taliban. In ongoing operations today a number of British
paratroopers lured Taliban into an attack. British forces responded with machine
guns, small arms, shoulder fired rockets, mortars, and a 500 lb bomb. Locals say
"Many Taliban dead."

Sounds like some good news

It is very bad news when our lads get killed. I'm not convinced that it is good news when their lads get killed.

But what is appallingly bad news is the story of Corporal Stringer, a young Welshman denied a hotel room because he was military personnel. Poor bloke!

That is, as you say awaful. Not sure it was who said, the worst thing after a battle lost, is a battle won.
