    Just make sure you're all there for any of the families left over here. The lads will take care of each other.

    All the more reason to help Hols4Heroes out, I fear this may result in a few fresh cases.

    I'm a bit bemused.

    Was all the the pre-operation press coverage a warning for the enemy to scarper and thus reduce the total casualties

    or

    To pre-warn the enemy to dig in with very good defensive positions? Mind you a bunker buster would soon sort that out once a position was found with hopefully no "cost" .

    So the baddies are not in effect defeated - just "move along, nothing to see"

    So what stops them from coming back? A hearts and minds operation that actually works?

    Partly, also the fact that for once, holding the ground on completion is incorporated into the plan.

    I do bl00dy hope so as all this effort for this blinking pipe line from the Caspian sea to Pakistan is taking a lot of "effort".

    Let's not forget the deposits of rare metals such as lithium, caesium, tantalum and niobium.

    As a born again atheist I may not be qualified to say this but: amen to that.

    The timeline for the ANA to be able to hold the cleared area without the support of NATO forces is what?

    US Forces kill 12 civilians in a rocket attack.
