    It looks like the dog got wounded.

    What I find interesting about this event is Talibans used the same stragety as last time; take over the building with vantage point near Nato/Afghan bases and government buildings. Of course with the same result.

    I think it is cool to see Afghan (SF or Commando unit?) wearing DCU's. The multicam soldiers are Norwegians.
