    Good Shot! Sniper Takes Out Six With One Shot.

    A BRITISH sniper killed five Taliban insurgents and a would-be suicide bomber in Afghanistan with one bullet, the British Ministry of Defence says.


    The 20-year-old marksman, a lance corporal in the Coldstream Guards, hit the trigger switch of the device from 930 metres away, causing the bomb to explode.
    The blast killed the would-be bomber and five men around him, a Defence spokesman said.
    The incident in December in Kakaran, southern Afghanistan, has been disclosed as Britain prepares to leave from the country by the end of the year.
    Lieutenant Colonel Richard Slack, commanding officer of 9/12 Royal Lancers, told The Daily Telegraph the unnamed shooter also prevented another major attack as a second suicide vest packed with explosives was found nearby.
    "The guy was wearing a vest. He was identified by the sniper moving down a tree line and coming up over a ditch," he said.
    "He had a shawl on. It rose up and the sniper saw he had a machine gun.
    "They were in contact and he was moving to a firing position. The sniper engaged him and the guy exploded. There was a pause on the radio and the sniper said, 'I think I've just shot a suicide bomber'. The rest of them were killed in the blast."

    Ditto, but good that our glorious leaders completed their objectives and came out on top.

    Well, not quite but at least they surrendered honourably, which in today's mad world is a victory of sorts.

    ^ Wonder about that. How many want the Taliban? Seems that no one learns about Afghanistan, same old story time after time.

    Seems to me that the regular folk are under the double fear of upsetting the Taliban and upsetting God. I would expect that all the well educated women and those of a secular nature are already trying to get out of the country. Not going to be a happy ending in a year or less.
